    sorry ive been out of pocket lately...keep forgetting to check msgs. so you had lost 17 lbs 2 weeks ago (which is awesome!)...how about now? are you feeling ok? moved on to solids yet? My "sticking" problem is resolving itself finally. the dr thought it might be a stricture but gave me carafate to try first in case it was an irritation from surgery. as long as i take it and the nexium i can eat easier. i had 2 small meatballs the other night and they went down pretty easily ---- I WAS ECSTATIC!!! i have been exercising a couple days a week, mostly treadmill and swimming but i am meeting with a trainer today to start an exercise program. i am down 30 lbs and a pant size in 5 weeks so i am thrilled! keep me posted on your progress... i will try to better about checking msgs :/

    I'm feeling ok - I still feel kind of 'blah' I'm not tired but don't have energy - does that make sense?
    How are you? You went through quite the ordeal! That is crazy - are you getting around ok?

    The gurgling has stopped so that is good. Overall its been going pretty well - it was a rough first week after but once I hit 8 days I felt almost back to normal. I am pretty tired of not eating - I'm still on full liquids for another week - then pureed - I miss crunching on something. I was off this week again and next week we have a family vacation and my biggest concern is how fast I get tired. How was going back to work?

    im sorry you had such a rough time ... but i'm glad you are feeling better now! i am still on soft foods cuz everything i eat sort of "catches". i take little bites, chew chew chew, but it still is very uncomfortable. other than that I am feeling good, started exercising and am down a pant size so life is good! how about you? have you been shedding the pounds?

    That would be great to keep in touch - I am trying not to freak but I am! I've never had surgery before so the entire unknown is worrying me - plus everyone saying how weak they are for so long after. and I am not looking forward to the 1 week clear liquids or 2 weeks of full liquids afterwards

    Don't be anxious. You got this girl! The best advise that I can give is go into it with a positive attitude. I honestly believe that's what helped me "bounce back" with minimal complications. If it's any consulation....I didn't sleep before surgery and am still not sleeping after. LOL No real change in that department!!!!

    Hello there I'm doing much better. Just having little trouble drinking more than 3 onz. I get full quickly. But everything is going smooth
  15. HI Susan,

    I appreciate it and agree with you 100%. I'm really not telling anyone I work with and a selective group of friends, very selective. I know 2 people that have had the sleeve and have spoken with them at length about it. I am grateful for your support and I hope you feel the same. I have been reading like a book editor soaking in as much information as I truly can. I surmise that if you do what the doctor says you will be just fine and continue to lose weight.

by Lorna on 06-23-2015 at 06:52 PM
Today marks 12 months since my surgery. I had 5 in total in about 5 weeks. Had a slew of complications for 3 months. Today, i have lost 92 lbs. have been to 8 weeks of CrossFit, doing yoga in between, have quit smoking as well. I just want to thank each of you for all your support before, during and after up through now. I truly don't think I could have gotten through without you all some days.

So, just wanted to take a few seconds to thank you all for everything you do and continue

Skin Removal Surgery

by Lorna on 04-26-2015 at 08:35 AM
Hi All,

I'm about 10 months out and my Dr. is suggesting skin removal surgery for the early fall. Can any of you who have had it tell me what you think the pros/cons are and how you felt about getting and how you feel now. Also, what is the recoup time, how long are the drains in and when can you get back to the gym.

Thanks so much!

One year ago today...

by Lorna on 12-23-2014 at 06:13 AM
I started this whole thing with going to my first meeting at the hospital. June 23rd had the first surgery of 5 in 4 weeks and thought this was the worst thing I ever have done in my whole life. Yesterday, 6 months out, the Dr. told me I was down 75 with 10 to go. I thought, wow, I can't believe it, I felt like I was at a complete standstill since the last time I saw him 3 months previous. Thinking back, I believe I had all those issues for a reason, to think next time I want to reach for a whopper

8 weeks out

by Lorna on 08-26-2014 at 05:25 PM
Well, I had my sleeve June 23rd and it was the beginning of the end. 5 surgeries later and 8 weeks later I am back to work full time, back at the gym and down 50 pounds. I never got to go through all the stages for the six weeks of eating but am eating fully now and eating mostly everything. Still haven't had salad or a lot of fruit yet. Made spaghetti squash for myself last night while my sons had pasta and didn't feel deprived.

Thank you all for your posts they have been good

Tomorrow-3 weeks post op

by Lorna on 07-13-2014 at 07:39 AM
I hear this is for the good the bad and the ugly so here goes. I had a Hiatal hernia repaired the day of surgery and things were moving along fine for the first 24. After that, I started vomiting and was horribly nauseous so they kept me one more day. Day 3 I continued to vomit so I went for a drink test and they discovered that my stomach had twisted back up to my esophagus. So Thursday I had another surgery to bring the stomach down and untwist. Friday I continued to vomit violently and had to
