it will be fine. I'm one week today and feel great. I did have trouble with anesthesia and had to stay and extra day but back at work and doing well. The surgery itself doesn't hurt. where they take the baby out does. once its done it will be fine. Best wishes to you today

Thanks you guys. I had a great surgery. I’m in very little pain and have been sipping Water and walking all evening. What I am confused about is the fact that I am HUNGRY!! Is that normal?

I am hungry too I had surgery like 9pm dec 18th so close to you I’m not super hungry but I do get there, I had excruciating pain when I woke up and for the first 6hrs then it subsided little by little I got a abdominal band to help keep everything in place and it’s heaven sent as far as walking I did 2 laps then 4 laps then 6 laps, 6 was a bit much but I’m ambitious so I pushed after lap 5... I’m having pain so no more for today they said 3 laps a day is what u should do

msbest2u I’m right there with you. Had my sleeve done yesterday 12/18 and am actually feeling hungry today and craving things that I smell ( but not as strongly as before at least). Thought this wouldn’t make me hungry initially!

Hi surgery twin! Yes, I thought the same thing, but what I’m being told is that it’s not really hunger pangs, it’s gas. I will be so glad when it’s gone. I have been trying to walk so it would expel faster, but I still have a ways to go before it’s completely gone. How are you doing with Protein? I can’t get any in because they all make my tummy hurt. I don’t know what to do. 😩

Not getting more than 20-30g in. I’m so sick of shakes and broth. I tried greek yogurt today and was able to stomach it so hoping that helps. I’m also walk, walk, walking. Just hang in there and do what you can! My sleeve only hurts a little if I drink a big gulp of Water on accident but doesn’t seem to mind anything else.

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
