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.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
