Hi everyone! I’ve lost 35 pounds since my pre-op diet and I’m 6 weeks out of surgery, but I haven’t lost a pound since I was 4 weeks out! Anyone else go through this? I’m so discouraged now and feel like I went through all this crap for nothing

Also, this is my first surgery EVER so I’m nervous

Hi everyone!

im getting the sleeve in September and of course I'm on my doctor rollercoaster! How many doctors did you all have to see? So far I've seen the surgeon, nutritionist, cardiologist, and the doctor who does the endoscopy.
