It’s okay. I’m just throwing myself a pity party since getting the call this morning lol

The heartburn is horrendous still and I just want this over. My son is supposed to get married in June and wanted this under control ... plus worrying about them cancelling the wedding.

I get it and totally understandable, congratulations on your son's future nuptials! Where in New York are you? I'm on Long Island.

I think they are just trying to be safe, which I know is disappointing. I had my surgery on 3/2 and even my surgeon doesn't want me coming in for a post-op appointment, that will be done by video chat. I am doing well but I've been home. I will return to work next week due to being an essential employee.

I made it under the wire by 3 days and they cancelled on 3/15 for 3/18 the first time. I understand the safety aspect.
glad you’re doing well.
mine is just a revision so I’ll be okay.

I hope you used the breathing thing while you were and the hospital and while getting out to get your lung capacity as strong as it was before. I worry so much about just gotten surgery people to get the virus 🦠 Especially because I feel like right after surgery we're so weak and building up Vitamins back into our bodies. Stay safe and good luck.

I did use it while i was in the hospital however I forgot to pack it when I came home but I have been walking outside when the weather is good to build up my endurance. I start my soft food diet today and I'm thankful to finally be graduating! I would think that should help me to build more strength as well. I think the best thing we can do to fight this virus is to pray, be well rested, hydrated, and eat nutritiously. Thank you for the concern. You had your surgery a few days before me, how are you doing with your recovery?

      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

      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.
