Yesterday was a little tough with the belly button pain, I realized talking, walking too fast and standing too long puts pressure there. Add that I have some coughing and feel like it will burst. Other than that the bigger incision sometimes feels sore and is getting easier to get on bed, still a little struggle to get off bc of the belly button incision. I managed 40oz of Water, 4oz of shake and 2oz of broth. Hoping to do better or at least the same for today.

Hellooo, still not meeting the 64oz more like 40oz. Finally got my blood thinner injection so have been doing that for 2 days now. I have some discomfort in the area between the big incision and the belly button one, I think thats where some nerve blocker is still leftband itbia becoming alive. Otherwise pain is minimal, only take 1 tylenol a day mainly because of the belly button and the pressure coughing has put to it. I stopped doing the breathing exercise because of the coughing, I know thats the point but when i cough i feel like my insides will burst through there.

Had my 1 week post op appointment, everything went well. I have been doing good with my Fluid almost at 55oz and I'm taking in about 40g of Protein. Pain is small on that incision and only when I do certain movements. I'm cleared to start pureed on Monday.

I had gastric sleeve on November 2nd. Boy was I nervous! I saw my husband go through through gastric sleeve and he did great! I had a VERY hard week following surgery. But once I got past that week I have been moving forward. I am managing to get in my Protein and Water daily (sometimes it’s really hard). I started going for walks this week and I think the sunshine is helping. Everyday I’m feeling better! I haven’t had an issue with Hair loss and am cautiously optimistic about that. How many calories is everyone averaging?

Sorry to hear about the dry heaving. I only had cough and it was mainly because of the incentive spirometer which is supposed to cause cough to clear out the lungs.

Are you also having nausea? Are you pacing yourself when drinking?

I'm wondering if it is any of the medications, have you reached out to your team? Most of my support group has mentioned it with nausea or if its too cold

Yes just got back it’s dry heaving …. So that’s fun . She wants me to focus on liquids for now and slowly introduce the Protein again. Apparently it’s part of the process and said to call her if there is zero improvement

Hey guys! I had my sleeve on Nov 7th. I'm doing pretty good. Just wondering how many calories you all are eating? I'm getting around 400-500. I feel like that is high especially for such small amounts of food. I eat 3 (2oz) meals of pureed food, 2 Premier Protein shakes (160 calories per shake), and of course my Water.

Hi guys, I had surgery on the 14th of this month and I feel really good. And I haven't had any problems since I left the hospital and am able to keep foods down and get my Water goal daily. I feel really blessed, but I feel that the scale is moving slow. My doctor says its normal and not to weigh myself every day. Anyone else feel like the scale is moving slow?

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
