    Re: I gained 10 lbs while in the hospital!

    I agree. I'll bet you are holding fluid. Once it's gone you'll see a weight loss.

    Re: Telling family

    I didn't tell my family. I did not think they would be supportive. I don't need negativity in my life. I'm good enough at that myself.

    Re: Is the sleeve as miserable as a lap band

    I had the sleeve in Nov 2016. I'm down 120 pounds. I am very happy with my sleeve. No ongoing pain or issues. You will vomit if you over eat and figuring out how much to eat is tricky.
    I would...

    Re: Just a quick hello!

    Congrats on getting the surgery. You have only good things to look forward to.

    My energy is fine. I just need to get in my protein. I have to admit that I don't always do that, but I always try.

    I doubt you did anything to cause the leak. Sometimes things happen. I don't think our bodies would allow us to over eat or drink to the point where we could cause a leak.

    I agree with most posters, it is probably gas. Once it's out of your system you will probably only have minimal pain. I took something for pain for about 2 weeks.
    I hope you have the same results.
