  1. OMG @HannahG! I really hope you get better soon! Everything happens for a reason. March is just around the corner.

    Thank you! Unfortunately, my surgery got postponed at almost the last minute because it was found in my pre-op blood work that my white blood cell count was 12.9 (the cut-off for surgery is 10). I was devastated because I've had my whole life planned around having surgery today, and at the point when I found out that we had to reschedule, I had been on clear liquids for 10 days!

    I went to my family doctor yesterday because I have a swollen lymph node in my armpit (hopefully it's the reason for the high WBC). He gave me an antibiotic for 10 days and then I have to repeat the blood work. Surgery is tentatively rescheduled for March 15th.
  3. @aocutiepi I'm doing well. Trying to get a solid routine back in place and today is day1!

    I'm doing well, how are you?
  6. Thank you elle77 - it's nice to meet you too I am so glad to be on this forum now. I've just been asking friends questions that had other procedures until one of them advised me to get on a gastric sleeve forum.
  7. Is this even real? I've been in size 24/26 jeans for a long time and today I put on the 18's just to see how much more I needed to go.... They fit!!! Zipped up... Zero Struggles!
    I'm sooooooo HAPPY!
  8. Thanks everyone. I'm in some pain. It only on my right side. They said that's normal. I really don't like it but other than that today is my first protein day. Yesterday was just sips of water. I only wanted to throw up right after surgery which was awful and when I tried walking the first three times. Yesterday I walked around the whole floor and felt soooooo much better. I will take a walk at the park today which is across the street. Did anyone else have any problems?

    Hi Elle, Nice to hear from you! I am doing ok. I am still on clear liquids. I see my nutritionist the Friday coming up and it will be a month since my surgery. I am going to the next phase which will be puree and yogurt and scrambled egg. I cannot wait! I'm not hungry so that's a good thing. I am down 21 lbs since surgery day 6-16 and 53 down since my consultation last November. I feel good. Only complaint is I am a little tired and low on energy but I 'm sure that will change once I can have soft foods. I go for walks every day for exercise until my Dr clears me to lift some weights at the gym. Good luck on your journey. Take it one day at a time. I got so much info from this site and I watched so many you tube videos just by typing in VSG. Keep me posted. If you have any questions I will try to answer what I can from my I'm new to this and still learning everyday. Take Care and Keep in Touch!

15 weeks out

by elle77 on 02-16-2017 at 12:36 PM
Today I hit the 15 week mark!

I'm getting where I need to be little by little and I'm very happy.
I do have stalls and it's OK. I've learned to roll with them. To not fuss over the scale. I have days where I go up in water weight and come all the way down. I'm still having bathroom issues but my Dr. says it's because my body was used to me consuming large amounts of water before surgery and now that I'm on the daily struggle to chug more than 64 0z from 3 liters is a big change.

Having a cold a month after surgery

by elle77 on 12-01-2016 at 05:36 AM
Hi there,

So I ended up catching a nasty cold. I can't sleep at all because I can't stop coughing and I have zerooooo desire to eat. I forced some liquids down and some soup and that was it. I've had this since the day before Thanksgiving and it only seems to be getting worse. Has anyone caught a cold and if so which medicine did you take?

50 Grams of Protien Shake! Tasty! Premier Protien.

by elle77 on 11-10-2016 at 12:11 PM
Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to share something I made today.
a 50 gram protein shake that tastes REALLY GOOD!!

If you love the Premier Protein Shakes like I do, then this is for you!

I took one scoop of the new High Protein Slimfast Mix 20 gram protein and instead of using Milk I mixed in one Chocolate Premier Protein Shake.

I'm only drinking 1 of these a day

1 scoop is 110 calories and the Premier is 160 = 270

Hi everyone!

Turns out I was super dehydrated and I was back in the Hospital for a full day. They had to give me an UPPER GI cocktail to help with the burning. My stomach is veryyyyyy swollen and I needed lots of fluids.

I feel better now. I'm just taking sips as much as I can and doubled up on the Prilosec which really reduced the burning feeling. I just knew something was off and I'm glad I called in.

Thank you for all of your support! I truly appreciate

Holy HeartBurn and other things

by elle77 on 11-07-2016 at 11:05 AM
Hello Everyone!

So I've been taking all of your advice but I'm still having issues. The Heartburn and acid reflux is off the charts. Even when I'm drinking plain water. I was having issues with one ounce and now even with a few sips it makes it worse.

I've been taking the Prilosec and still having issues. I'm still in pain. I had to email my Dr. I'm having this burning pain from one of my incisions. Everything looks ok but I literally have to hold my stomach to walk
