Hi May 2018 sleevers! I hope you all are doing well. This year has flown by very quickly. I am down 80 lbs. and have just 20 more to my goal weight. Been following the diet, but am in a bit of a stall...Went to my surgeon my check-up, and he is very happy with my progress, but thinks I am able to lose more. Recommended visiting my nutritionist to see where I can cut calories and/or carbs. Would love to hear how you all are doing...

I feel ok, I did have some sharp burning pain close to one of my incisions. Called my surgeons office and they suggested an ice pack and that helped a whole lot. Also for pain I have oxycodone and 1,000 mg of Tylenol. I still can’t tell when I’m full but I’m definitely not hungry. I have two 30grams of Protein Shakes a day and try to have 64oz of water... Also sugar free popsicles and pho (only the broth) are my faves lol

Each day, you'll feel better. Did you get the Sleeve or the Bypass? Which Protein Powder did you get?

My surgery is May 27 today is the first day of the fast I don’t know which is worse the hunger or the nervousness that grows with each passing day plus I’m type 1 diabetic so it’s a bit tricky to fast.

2nd week since surgery. Still on Protein Shake and Soups. 400-500 callories a day. Monday schedule to see PA to start puree food.< span class="ipsEmoji">🙌. I am so ready for a change. Doing good, no meds since day of surgery. Have not been sick at all. Lost 20 # prior to surgery and 12 since surgery. Total 32 #. Already gone down size in clothes. Feeling great except getting week at times with low calorie intake. Hanging in there 👍

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
