    Hi Ella-Ann ! Thanks for your reply. I had my surgery through the MGH weight center! Where was yours? Hope you are progressing nicely. I am back to work tomorrow after being out for six weeks! I recovered well!

    HI I'm from Boston as well. Sleeve date was dec 9th! Thanks for your support Ella-Ann
  3. Day 1 and all is well. I'm still on the hospital. Still in ICU. But they have removed the heart monitor, removed the oxygen sensor. Removed the catheter, and taken me off oxygen. I still have the drain and the IV. I have some pain around the largest incision and some gas pain, but it's tolerable and a lot less today than yesterday. I've been walking as often as I can and am anxious to get home. Thanks to all for the great posts and advice, it makes things a little easier when you're prepared.

    Hi Linda it took me a while to figure it out! On any of the pages look up in the green part it'll say Welcome (your name) Notifications Control Panel etc.....click on Control Panel and then it will take you to another page. On the left side of new page scroll down till you see Edit Signature and click on that. There will be a box that you can put things in and that's how you do it! Don't forget to save
  10. Thank you! I just started my pre-op diet today which is making this all so real. One minute I'm so excited and the next I'm a basket of nerves and fears. I try to dwell only on the positive. Again, thank you.

    Good luck with your surgery.. Let me know how it goes.. It is scary.. It's life changing it's a risk but for me I had to do this as I was getting fatter and sicker by the day... Keep I touch and let me know how you are
    All the best Hev

9 months - goal met!

by Ella-Ann35 on 04-10-2015 at 05:25 PM
I'm not very good at posting much, but there isn't a day that goes by that I don't read and read on here. This site, and all of you, have been invaluable to me.

I'm not one of those who were excited and anxious to start this journey. It was a whole year from my first visit with the surgeon to the date of surgery and that was fine with me, the longer the wait, the better. I always questioned if I was doing the right thing.

Today, 9 months later, I've lost 80 lbs.

3 days post-op

Any advice on when the pain stops? I'm also having bouts of coughing which intensifies the pain. Have not been sick to my stomach at all, so that's all good, and have been walking as much as I can. But when I walk I find I'm holding my belly due to the pain. Is this normal? I can't take prescription pain meds so I'm just takin Tylenol.

Today's the day!!

Hi all,
Well, today is day 0, this is it! Surgery is in 7 hours. I have so many emotions. Looking forward to the day that I can say this is the best decision I ever made but I know it's a long process. Prayers welcome. Thanks for all the great posts that have been so helpful.
