If everyone would update their statistics you would have lots of information. I'm not at 6 months yet but will be 5 months on the 9th. My info and my wt loss ticker are up to date. Are you still pre op?

Here’s a useful tool to see how much you would lose for each procedure that would be specific to your actual height, weight and BMI
https://www.bariatric-surgery-source.com/laparoscopic-gastric-bypass-surgery.html
Although I didn’t see the MGB on there
The link won’t go straight to the tool. Scan down to section 2 and you’ll see a pink button to click on for the calculator

There is no guarantee what your weight loss outcome will be after surgery. We are all more than the statistics.

I started at 254 pre surgery - I got to goal 140 in six months with the sleeve. Almost 5 years out, I maintain in the 130's.

My highest ever weight was around 283 lbs. My "first appointment" weight was 276 lbs. I am almost 7 months out. Surgery day (8/16/18) I was 264 lbs. At my 6-month office visit, I was 190 lbs, so a loss of 74 lbs in 6 months. I had the sleeve surgery.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
