A few pound away from pre surgery weight



Recommended Posts

I am in the process of getting cleared for sleeve surgery. Do you think my surgeon will give me a date if I am Only 3 pounds from the weight he wanted me to weigh?

I would think so. Three lbs could due to just Water retention - or constipation. Of course I'm not the surgeon, but a two or three lb daily fluctuation is pretty common....so I personally wouldn't think anything of someone being a couple of pounds "up".

I think you could certainly argue if he chose not to, especially since your weight can fluctuate 3-5 lbs. just based on things like how much salt you've eaten, stress level, whether you're close to the monthly time, or a zillion other factors. You could point out that you've lost N pounds and are clearly able to follow instructions.

Honestly, I doubt you'll have a problem.

Yes I believe they will - you'll likely lose it.

Even Dr. Now would give you grace for 3 lbs.! I don’t think you have a worry!
