What, you had NO surgery complications?



Recommended Posts

4month post-op sleeve surgery 12/4/18 and I have had zero problems. Woke up fine, minimal pain with anesthesia, only took pain meds for the first 24hrs just in case. I was sore for the first week and slept in the recliner but not in pain. I'm down 40 lbs since surgery. I followed all of the rules the first 5 weeks - drank plenty of fluids and rested more than I ever have. I am now able to eat anything I want just in smaller quantities. I do not count carbs or calories, I just make better choices and stop eating the moment I feel any kind of fullness. I paid out of pocket for my surgery and feel like I'm trying to make long term adjustments for a lifestyle, not just the honeymoon phase of surgery. I use vitamin patches so I dont have to swallow pills and my 3 month bloodwork was great.

No complications here either. Sleeved February 28, 2019. I had day surgery was released within 2 hours of surgery, walked a lot right after. Had no nausea, took minimum pain meds for a few days. I've had no stalls yet. Lost 11 lbs first week and 2 to 5 lbs every week since. Down 63 lbs since the two week pre-op diet. I follow my plan, log my food, take my Vitamins, weigh and measure my food, weigh myself only once a week, drink Water only, get my Protein in most days. One thing I don't do on plan is hit my calorie goal of 600-800 calories, I find that difficult at this point as I can't eat much and don't snack because I'm never hungry. I think I had a great surgeon and support staff. I couldn't be happier with my results.

Don’t know if it is considered a true complication but my only real complaint is constipation. I think I finally have things moving again. Miralax is my new best friend.

I haven't any problems and am almost 3 months out and losing weight steady and no problems eating either.
