    Well... it has been a couple of months.... still no word on your end. Hope all is well and everything healed up nicely. Just a quick note to let you know you were not forgotten in your absence and certainly missed.

    Just stopping by to show some love to your page. I hope your holidays went alright and that you're doing well; that you just haven't been on because you're so busy with happy things in life.

    :-) Come back!

    Hi Kari, how are you doing, I am in a struggle at the moment as I can't seem to eat much at all, seen my surgeon and having a contrast barium meal next Friday, I know the whole point was to lose weight but 112lbs since my surgery seems an awful lot when I look at other people who have had surgery around the same time as me, I feel ok and have sailed through everything untill 4wks ago, I do hope your surgery has been a huge success for you as well.

    Happy new year. .I haven't been on in months but congrats on finally getting surgery. Looks like your doing great. I've been stalled for over a month but I'm OK with that as I reached a size 10 at my 6 month check up..thought I'd have to get to goal weight to see that. Now skin is catching up and working to tone and yes get to goal. But just wanted to say hi.

Hey everyone, its been a long 4 months but I am back. I had surgery had a lot of complications, had to have 6 more procedures done and with the passing of my mom in Februrary it hasn't been an easy road. Im down 84 pounds and still losing. I don't want to lose any more weight. Im happy where I am. I just didn't want any of my friends on here to worry about me because im back with a vengeance. Love ya, Kari

I have had my gastric sleeve on 11/8/2016 and i am freakin miserable. I have lost 48lbs in 36 days. I cant eat, I can barely drink, im so tired and i dont have energy for anything. Im afraid if it keeps going this way I could die. This surgery is nothing like I thought it would be. I dont think I would ever tell anyone to do it. Please do your research on the surgery before you commit to it. There is no reversal and once its done you cant change your mind. My doctor said this will pass, but as

I had my sleeve surgery on 11/8/2016, i think all of my problems started in the hospital while i was recovering. I was having some belly pain id rate it a 4-5. (Note: my allergies are MORPHINE.) I asked the nurse for something for pain and guess what I got? MORPHINE. So the nausea and vomiting started. I even had Morphine listed on my allergy bracelet WTF. So I asked the nurse what i was given for pain and she said Morphine. I told her i was allergic she said no nausea and vomiting arent an allergy

Weight loss

by KariVSG on 11-22-2016 at 12:06 PM
My starting weight was #223
surgery day 11/8/16 #202
Today 11/22/16 #188

Not to bad of a weight loss if i say so myself. A lot of it was because i could not eat. But weight loss is weight loss

Hey everyone i had my surgery on the 8th and have had problem since. I have had to have an additional procedure done on Friday the 18th. I have not been able to keep food or drink down. I went in on the 18 and had my throat re stretched and had a repeat EGD done he said i was super tight and things should start getting better. I cant keep any protein drinks down I can keep some jello but it is very painful. I have been off of work for 2 weeks and today is my first day back.
