Had my gastric sleeve today



Recommended Posts

Today is the first day of the rest of my life. Had mt gastric sleeve operation today and for the most of today have been feeling shitty - nauseous, lightheaded but otherwise happy its finally done and now it is slowly going up. I expect some downs but still it feels like the part I was scared the most of is finally over.

At first I did sip but felt so bad and nauseous after it. So they just put a second drip and said that I can take it easy on sipping today and try again tomorrow once the gas pain is also pain. I do take the walks though.

Congrats! I had mine done a week ago. I had never had surgery before so it was a... different experience. [emoji1] However, after a few days I started feeling like myself again with some tenderness. I hope the nausea/ dizziness subsides sooner than later. Good luck![emoji106]

Feeling shitty is 1/2 your body's reaction to the insults done to it in the name of positive health science, 1/4 recovering from anesthesia and 1/4 emotional let- down after summoning enough courage to go through and have your Surgery. Most of us run at a fever- pitch tying up loose ends, making. sure nothing blocks you when you have travelled so far in so many ways to Get Here .
Promise, Day by Day you are going to feel better, expect a let-down about 3 days in, 72 hours at. High Emotional Energy is about all one body can stand. For me or was also the day I went home, I ached , was weepy, oh I was glad for my surgery, really I was, but on the surface " Sweet Mother of God, WHAT DID I LET ME IN FOR?" But very soon the Sun will shine, the Bluebirds will sing and the flowers bloom, and your world🌎will be a wonderful new place to live and your future will shine forth! And you will be like me, telling the " Newbees" "You can do it, You really can do it, I've been there and I know! "And to. all them, you will be the Veteran , the Mentor to guide them on their way too!
So smile😝, sip,sip, sip, do your "Walkies" be happy you've been this chance, remember not all of us get approved the very time They try and I think you'll do Just Fine!

Ironically we actually moved into our own place this last weekend. Because of this operation we tried extra hard to get all renovations done in time so we could move in and I unpacked everything I could fit in the existing furniture. It will be a new place to live in :)

Congratulations! I am super excited for you. I cannot wait to get the surgery part over. I personally feel like that is the easiest. I am in pre-op and trying to get in Protein and new healthy eating lifestyle is a challenge. But I am ready!

Feeling much better today. Was given yesterday a painkiller shot and a sleeping pill and therefor had a very good night rest. Sipped a whole 25 ml in and the result was nothing as bad as yesterday, totally tolerable.

      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!!  😈
