    Default Just got sleeved

    Hello everyone. i finally did it. I came on here about a year ago expressing some concerns about getting sleeved and how I was scared because I watched my friend and her experience was not a good one to watch. So I put it off, until I had my gynecologist do a composite structure in their office and told me that 43 percent of my body weight was visceral fat. I hadn't heard of it until then and within two weeks I heard it again from another doctor, neither was a gastric surgeon, so that was the determining factor for me. I am three days out and my experience is quite different from my friend. I am not throwing up at all not even one time. I am getting almost all of my protein , it's still a little too much to drink right now. I do have gas so I will be buying gas x strips tomorrow, first thing . I want to thank all of you who encouraged me to continue inspite of her journey. Everyone's journey is different with some same elements so I am grateful. I notice how some post have a ticker that tells how much they have lost and their starting weight I would like to have that also, so if anyone can assist me on including that I'd really appreciate it.

    I'm so excited. Today I had follow up with my surgeon and he showed and gave me a video of my surgery. It was surreal. They had to put extra staples because of leaks in the staple line, but I guess I'm ok.

    I would SO have watched a video of my VSG surgery! I love seeing the inside of my body -- sort of like visiting outer space. But, of course, it's inner space.

    I know . I'm not sure I should have. Every since then I think I'm leaking and hurting. I texted my surgeon at 11:00pm last night because my back between my shoulder blades was hurting , he called me back because he's out of town and said go to ER and have them
    Call me if you're not feeling better.

    My back hasn't hurt at all today. But I'll pass on watching it again.

    I was sooo anxious to see if I came right home and watched it. Now I have a million questions. Last night my back was hurting between my shoulder blades and I texted my surgeon and he told me to ER. He's out of town and he said if I don't feel better go and have them cal
    Him . I don't think I want to see the video again.

    I tell you what,my stomach was laying in a bed of fat completely surrounding it . It was something else. Then when they brought the video out of my belly I saw my stomach so I knew it was me.

    I don't know. You might be like me now, thinking everything is wrong just because I watched because I swear I was still
    Leaking when they closed me up
