12/2 surgery people?!



Recommended Posts

Stumbled across this app at just the right time. Have my Sleeve surgery in 9 hours. This is my first post.

I had Lap-band installed in 2013, it slipped had it removed in 2016, was supposed to do revision a few months later, but chickened out. Then after yo-yoing the last 3 years, and increasingly worsening back pain, finally decided to go through with it.

Was kinda here reading through here psyching myself out a bit. But know the benefits outweigh the fear.

Anyone else out there a 12/2 sleever? Or December at all?

Best of luck to all of ya!

Good luck on your surgery. I had my lap band removed and got the sleeve on 11/13. Doing good so far - enjoying my time off work as I took the full 6 weeks. I am down 15 pounds since surgery - not getting much exercise in yet.

Hello Steve! I was a December 3rd sleever. Hope your surgery has gone well.

I'm 35/M/CO.

DOS: 399
GW - low 200s.

Things have been going surprisingly well for me....pain is manageable (2/3 on a 10 point scale) and I can sip 5oz of Water in around 15 minutes. I'm sure the cocktail of painkillers and anti-anxiety meds are contributing...lol.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
