January 2023 Surgery Buddies!



Recommended Posts

I am getting nervous almost ready to back out. I am terrified. I am worried about pain leaks and complications. I just do not want to regret this. Gastric sleeve surgery scheduled for Jan 16 2023.

I had my sleeve done on 1/16, too! It’s been a few days and I’m happy to be home and feeling more normal. It’s been a steep learning curve but I’ve felt pretty good so far. How are my other 1/16 buddies feeling?

Hello everyone my Gastric sleeve surgery was January 19th. I was super nervous and anxious. Dealing with slight soreness and some surgical pain. I'm @ the 30g of Protein range and roughly 50L of fluids. This two week phase is going to be tough. I'm glad to see that there's a place where we can look for support when needed.

I go back to work tomorrow after 2 weeks off. I had my post-op today. I'm down 18 lbs from the day of surgery. I'm feeling great and getting my 60+ g of Protein in and tons of Water. I do 2oz of soft foods every 2 hours. Today my BP was 114/70 and I haven't been on BP meds since 2 days before surgery. I sort of feel like that's a huge NSV already!

Yay, we’re surgery twins! I also had the VSG/Gastric Sleeve on January 19th. 😊

How are things going for you?

Hello, I guess I can day I feel great. I'm still hurting in my stomach, but it's getting better. I weighed 338 pounds the first visit to the weight loss management center Oct.19th, 2022. Surgery was January 9th, 2023. As of January 28th, 2023, my weight is 297 pounds. Still have some work to do. The good thing about all of this is that I'm walking, standing, and sleeping more than I've done in more than 15 years. I don't post a lot but I will try to do better. 20221221_114021.jpg 20230128_084025.jpg

      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.  💪
