That's great! I was a little nervous the day of surgery, but all of the nurses, doctors, and the anesthesiologist I talked to before surgery were so great that they put me at ease. Your day will be here before you know it!

Ladies, make sure to wear a sports bra post-op! I wore one all yesterday and took it off before bed and never put it back on. The lack of support was adding pressure to core, making me more sore throughout today. I put it back on a few minutes ago and already feel much better.

I’m January 10th! I was hoping to get mine done over our winter break but it didn’t work out. But I’m happy that I at least got a date!
I had my surgery yesterday. Got home earlier this afternoon. Im up moving and feel pretty good overall.

My core is really sore. Did anyone buy and wear a stomach binder?

I did. I wore it for the first day or two but then found it hurt me more than helped :-)

I am not sure I will be able to wear one because my surgeon is sending me home with a ON Q bulb. He said it will come out my top incision.

Yeah! I had one shake—not going to be able to meet the goal of three, but it's progress!

Had my surgery on Monday, when I came to didn’t know what I had on right away but found the stomach binder hurt but I managed to keep it on for most of my stay to help keep swelling down. Did find more comfort when I did take it off middle Tuesday night

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
