So how do you feel? Is it like when we had the band placed? I had surgery on a Friday, went to church that Sunday but could not sit that long (2hrs) and came home. The next day I had classes and walk the campus and thought I would die but kept going. Really do not remember any other pain after those 3 days. Just wondering if the pain will be the same. Thank you so much!

Honestly less pain for me this time around. I remember being ridiculously exhausted for a few weeks after the insertion. With the removal, I had it done on a Friday and I went back to work on Sunday and never stopped. I was just relieved to have the band out!

Looking forward to the sleeve and I truly believe the band has emotionally/mentally prepared me for the sleeve so I can be thankful for the band about that. I just feel I am going into this surgery better equipped....we'll see.

Yes, absolutely! So I am guessing you too will have to wait the 3mths for healing and then revised to the sleeve? I am so glad we have surgeons that have our best interest at heart! Good luck to you and I wish you the best, please keep in touch!

Thanks so much!!
My surgeon wanted at least 6 weeks wait so the stomach gets a chance to heal and prevent a leak.
I wanted an August date to get summer out of the way.
Good luck as well and I will be watching out for your progress while keeping you updated![emoji253][emoji253]

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
