12/2/19 was my sleeve surgery date



Recommended Posts

Hello, I’m Jenny. I’m 38 years old, married to a wonderful and supportive guy, and a mother to two great kids. I had the sleeve done on Monday December 2nd with one overnight hospital stay. I went home on oxygen for when I’m at rest because of the elevation/altitude of where I live, which is near Denver. I’m 5’5” and was 295 pre-op. My goal is to lose 100 pounds and go from there. I have told very few people about my surgery because I don’t want to hear about how I took the easy way out. Nothing else I’ve tried has worked to lose weight and keep it off.

This is my second day post-op, and I am very sore. I’m trying to get my Fluid intake up and in a good spot, but it’s been hard. My stomach feels like I’ve been kicked a few times and it looks that way in spots where I’ve bruised. I don’t want to discourage anyone from getting their surgery done... I just wanted to write out how I’m doing so far. I hear it gets easier on the 3rd day.

Congratulations for making the decision to change your life! It does get easier every day. What you are feeling now is normal for any surgery. I remember waking up in the recovery room and thinking "holy ****, this really happened!" My abd felt like I'd been hit by a truck. After that, I never had any more pain. Follow your teams instructions and this next year will be transformative! It has certainly been one of the best things I've done for myself!

Nothing you just said was not typical and congrads - It all heals rather quickly and the best decision you made,

Enjoy the Journey

I posted my pic in the December sleeves, but I thought I’d follow up with my own post. Here’s a pic showing 6 days out and 16 days out. I’m happy I can start seeing a difference. I’m still struggling with things, mostly my Fluid intake, but I’m trying. I’m hovering around a 22 pound loss.

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!
      I even created a new blog post today! https://sabrinagoddess.com/create-a-life-that-you-love

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
