Anyone from West Texas that has been sleeved? I’m scheduled for May 27th and looking for an online friend for support.

I'm in Lubbock, Texas and was sleeved in December of 2018. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

I'm also in Lubbock and having my sleeve done tomorrow! Looks like you have made great progress! I'm down 21 pounds preop. Hoping for a new lease on life and being able to do more things with my husband and grandkids. Did you have your sleeve done in Lubbock?

Yes! I did it with Dr. Purtell at SWAT Surgical.

Awesome! He’s my doctor as well! Any advice for the next few days after surgery?

Cool. He is awesome. The gas pain is REAL! Walk, walk, walk! As much as possible. You may not feel like you can ever swallow normally again but you will. Just take your time and sip Water as much as you possible can. The first couple of days, maybe as much as a week will suck but after that it will be so worth it and get much easier each day. My wife did it about 6 months ago as well and is doing great too.

Thanks for the advice and support! I appreciate it very much! Glad to hear your wife is doing great! My husband is so supportive, even though he doesn’t have a weight issue he sees my struggle.

Had my sleeve two days ago. Still pretty groggy. I had a rough night the first night because my blood pressure dropped due to the scopolamine patch. Once that was removed everything got better. Been sipping lots of Water and finally started sipping on Protein Shake this afternoon. Going real slow, but no pain only a little discomfort when standing up. Doctor said to rest a lot for this first week and start getting more exercise in my routine after that.

Hi Nikki, stay strong and start eating healthy, so it will be easier when you have your sleeve. I’m five days out and just starting to feel a little more human. Where are you having your sleeve done?

Glad you are getting yours done soon. I just came from my first week checkup and doc was pleased with progress. I get to start soft foods on Friday. I’m ready to try something else and get some strength back. Keep us posted how you do after yours. Good luck!
