Anyone get their sleeve February 2019



Recommended Posts

My surgery date is 2/25/2019. I'm very nervous and scared of what my life will be like right after.
Do what you can today to make your post-op life easier. The recovery is a little harder than I anticipated. Fill your pantry with Protein Shakes, sugar free Jello, popsicles, broth, and gas-x. I cleaned my whole house the night before and put away all dishes and laundry so I wouldn't have to think about it. Anticipate being off your feet, except for short walks to relieve gas, for the next 2-3 days. Keep your head up, it does get better.

I was able to take Tylenol’ pills. The first 24 hours were the toughest but it gets better everyday. I echo what everyone else says, walk walk walk and sip sip sip! Good luck!

I’ve been getting super light headed also! I’ve been drinking Fluid constantly so I have no idea what is going on. I have my first pre op appointment Wednesday so hopefully the surgeon can enlighten me

Mine is too. We will be fine. Just breath and read. I've learned a lot from the different people. And no 2 of us are alike. The first few weeks are bodies are healing. Best wishes. Let us know how you do.

Sleeved Feb 11th! Yesterday was 2 weeks out. Down 21 pounds. Super low energy and trouble staying on top of Water intake. I’m having trouble figuring out which foods are ok with me- turns out I’m one of the people who become lactose intolerant after. Hope everyone is coming along and feeling well!

Hi everyone, just had it done on the 20th . Just feeling weak a lot. Did anyone experience that too?
Yes! Feeling weak is definitely my #1 symptom. I’m 9 days further out from you so I can tell you it DOES get better. Hang in there!
