Hi there, welcome and thanks so much for sharing your journey with us!

If you don't mind sharing, what's your current weight? Do you have family/friends to support you through this?

I had mine September 25th and while it's not an easy journey, it has definitely been worth it so far. Good luck and please do keep us updated with your progress!

I had my surgery everything went. I have alot of abdominal pain and pressure. I have my first post op appt Jan. 10. I am thankful and ready for my nee lifestyle change.
My current weight prior to surgery 264. My fiance is my biggest supporter. My parents and siblings are not very supportive at all. But I have to do what's best for me.

almost two weeks post op

I am down 20 pounds. Still a little sore. I can't drink my protein shakes they make me nausea. I take all liquid vitamins they make nausea. I now eat protein bars I chew them very well and fine. The super b complex liquid vitamin is so disgusting it turns my urine and everything dark yellow. But other than that all is well. I get to start work out this week so I'm excited.
