So far no cramping or pain today. The incisions still hurt a bit of course but my abdominal muscles don't hurt as much as they did after previous surgeries. The only thing that hurts less, lol.

I'M glad I'm on sick leave for some more days though.

Eating liquid doesn't really warrant the label of "eating". It already gets on my nerves big time. Maybe I should start a ticker until March 18th when I'll be allowed to have real food again, lol.

😂😫🤤

Today the staples were removed from the incisions. Wounds are looking fine. About 3 kg less now on the scales now than the day before surgery, btw.

Dammit, I want to eat roasted red beets now. Even these awful McD burgers looked fine today, lol.

How large/where is your incision?

Can you have Soup yet?

After my revision I dropped more than 10lbs so quickly I looked terrible & I began to have loose skin in my face /neck 😖

I have the usual 5 incisions across the upper abdomen. Nothing big and scary.

I eat Soup and thin pudding and yoghurt and the like. Luckily only 3 weeks of liquids this time instead of 4 weeks.

Oh! When you mentioned staples I thought large incision.

Hoping it goes quickly 😌

There was a little bit of pain when these little suckers were removed but nothing serious. Wounds looked good all the time.

On a side note, at least the weather is good for a nice Protein hot cocoa.

Meh, unfortunately inner upper thighs are stubborn as hell.

How long were you on liquids/soup after your revision? I find it way harder to recover this time. Ok ok, I'm almost 4 years older now but anyway. I also have to battle way more cravings.

      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...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
