Anyone get their sleeve February 2019



Recommended Posts

I'm getting discouraged. I had my sleeve on the 11th and have only lost 10 pounds in 15 days. Been in a stall for 5 days. 😟 It feels like a full time job getting in my Protein and fluids.

10 pounds in 15 days is still great progress! Like others stated, please don't get hung up on the number! You're making progress! Your body is in transition and right now it is probably thinking it is starving. Keep up with your fluids and Protein, get moving and you will see the scale move again soon.

Any tips to help the bloating? Feeling pretty miserable...

Sent from my SM-G950U using BariatricPal mobile app

The bloating is very miserable. I used the infant gas drops and had a tiny amount of milk of magnesia (consult with your doctor first). It took about day 5 post op for me to begin to release the bloat. I walked around my house 10 times and when I able to tolerate Protein Shakes, that really helped.

Hello everyone i had my sleeve on the 12th Feb. I have to admit I was scared and nervous and was dreading the recovery stage..however I feel great! I only had two days of stomach bloating and then it eased off. I'm still on liquids and I'm managing fine, i start pureed foods on friday and I can't wait !! 9 kilo down so far 😁

I am trying to drink Crystal light vs Water. So far.... not any easier. Th nurse called, my surery was the 25th and told me I had to get in Protein along with water! It feels daunting.

In the beginning it is difficult. Take heart, it does get easier. My nutritionist suggested getting an unflavored Protein Powder to enhance any beverages and any foods consumed. I purchased Isopure zero carb unflavored whey Protein. It has 25 grams of protein per scoop which I mix with 20 ounces of crystal lite. It's really very tolerable. It can also be sprinkled on yogurt and cottage cheese, eggs to elevate protein. I measure out a scoop for the day and use it up throughout the day.

2 days post op. I know it gets better buy right now I'm so sore. No appetite to drink shakes. Sipping liquids. Took 36 hours for my bladder to wake up. Had a extra night in hospital so cardiac teams could evaluate me. I had open heart surgery 2017 to replace valve and repair one. So they took precautions. I felt more comfortable in the hospital then I do here at home. I know tomorrow will be better. Can't seem to get warm. I was also told no cpap till 2 week follow up. So not much sleep happening here. Sorry I'm such a downer. Be well you'all.

Hang in there! I'm still really sore and don't ever feel like drinking. I'm making myself sip very often to make sure I'm hydrated. I don't want to end up back in the hospital. I'm not allowed shakes until Saturday. I'm on Clear Liquids. I'm surprised about the CPAP. My Dr had me bring mine to the hospital and told me to keep using it till the pulmonologist tells me not to. Which would be after another sleep study. Like I said hang in there! We got this! Just take it a sip at a time [emoji4]

I had my Surgery on the 19th. Was in for a Duodenal switch, but due to a drop in my O2 levels, my surgeon quit after the sleeve was done. I started my weight loss journey in May of 2018 at 399 pounds. I am 63 and 5'5". I lost 63 pounds prior to surgery, and at 9 days out now, I am down another 13 pounds. I am a little worried that I am doing too well after surgery. By that I mean, I have been able to eat everything I have tried, no nausea, very little pain, and I am never really hungry. Getting all my pills down with just sips of Water is a challenge, takes me forever a sip at a time.
