I had my VSG surgery on Dec 2, 2015 and reached my goal in exactly 10 months (oct 2, 2016) I wasn't at my heaviest weight at the time of my surgery. I make sure and stress the "So far" because anytime I have ever started to think I know it all, I mess

I have done well maintaining my weight for the last year. It goes up and down just a few pounds. I have however been so focused on protein and how much I weigh each day and not much else. I just had a blood test and my cholesterol is 400 !. They want t

At about 3 weeks I was told I no longer needed my binder ( for my abdominoplasty) My surgeon said to just wear a compression garment. I was so happy to not have to use the binder anymore that I forgot to ask how long I need the compression garment. I'm

It's time for me to start using the silicone strips that I got from my surgeon. But I have to remove all the glue first. Some of it came off with gentle washing. I just now oiled it, hoping that will help. Any advise as to how to remove the glue. picki

I got my 2nd drain removed yesterday. Such a relief. The right one was the last to be removed, it was starting to pinch. So happy to get it out. I feel so free today. I was able to put on normal clothes and not worry about hiding the drains under super

I'm feeling really well. Better than I expected. But I couldn't keep food down in the beginning. I called the surgeons office and had to change my regular high protein diet for a couple of days to stuff like crackers and toast, poweraide, applesauce.

Today is my pre op appt for abdominoplasty. My surgery is a week away. I don't really know what to expect, but I'm excited to have this done.


Renren posted a discussion topic 5 months, 2 weeks ago

I will be having an abdominoplasty on July 24th. I just started to wonder how long until the drains are removed? Also my post op appt is only 2 days after my surgery, is that common? Thanks in advance.

I just moved a few miles but it put me in another state, so I had to get a new drivers license today. For the first time ever I gave them my correct weight. Even my first one when I was a teenager was a lie. It sounds fun

I'm glad I had vsg. Best thing I ever did. My only problem is I would like to be able to sleep on my back, I had less pain in my neck when I could sleep in that position. Now if I lie on my back I get queasy within a couple of minutes. The only way to

My husband of 29 years passed away on Saturday morning. He had been ill for a long time, but I wasn't expecting it to happen this soon. I have no doubt that he is with God now, so I find a lot of comfort there. Anytime in

It's been 1 year today since my VSG. I reached my goal at 10 months and have been learning maintenance. I'm in a stressful situation with my Husbands health, we just found out he has Cancer among his other health problems

Weighing in everyday seems to help me maintain my weight. Just curious, Do most of you who have reached your goal weigh in everyday?

The election was very nerve racking for me yesterday. Before surgery I would have been trying to sooth myself with food. I just paced around a lot and drank a lot of coffee. Coffee is still comforting for me somehow.

I saw my Nephrologist today. He said my weight loss seems to be buying me some time with my kidneys. He expected me to be on dialysis by now or transplanted. He said I'm doing so well that they wouldn't give me a kidney i

Every Halloween at work they have Candy Night. Everyone brings a bunch of candy and they pile it on a table, and they gorge on it. Since I'm on vacation starting on Halloween, I thought I could avoid it, but no they are d

 I work in a cold section of a factory.  Since I've lost weight it's much harder to stay warm. I work alone, so about every hour I do squats and march in place for about 10 min. Last night I got so cold it wasn't working

 I weighed in this morning, the scale said 125#. When I was 288 I never thought I'd see 125 again ever. At that point making it back to 200 seemed impossible. So grateful to God,

About 1 month ago I was 5.5 pounds away from my ultimate goal of 125. I told my husband I need to find some kind of little reward for myself to motivate me to get there. (I had only lost a pound or two the month before)

When I read posts, I like how most people have their surgery date and what type of surgery they had over on the right hand side of the tital bar. Hard as I try, I haven't been able to get to  the place where I can add th
