  1. I just went and saw my hip surgeon about a month after my VSG surgery. She was going to retire in October of 2018 and wanted to get me in before she was done. So she scheduled me for July. I don't know if there are any time limits after VSG surgery, I believe it's up to the DR as far as I know.

    I had just my sleeve done on 11/13/18. I see you had your hip replaced 3 months after VGS.
    I will need a knee replacement asap. How soon after VGS can a patient have a knee replacement? Did your doctors choose the 3 month mark?

7 Weeks Post Op and Life is Good

by The North Sleeve on 06-09-2018 at 04:04 PM
I am officially 7 weeks post op as of yesterday (June 8, 2018). Uncle Sleeve has been very good to me and I couldn't be happier. I am down close to 60 lbs from my start of the pre-op liquid diet on April 8, 2018. MY surgery was April 20, 2018. My high weight was 354 lbs, my weight on day of surgery was 333 lbs and I am just under 300 lbs right now at 295 lbs. I am 6'2 and 50 years young!!
