Hi, I Was Sleeved Oct 4, 2011

Hey, I was sleeved on oct 4, 2011 and have lost 51 lbs.  I weighted 232 lbs before I started my journey to wls.  After going through 6 months of groups, doctors appts, dieticians, and all the other stuff, I was finally referred by Kaiser Permanente to Dr. LePort's Bariatric facility.  My doctor was Dr. Kelly Francis and she performed an excellent procedure.  I was in the hospital for 3 days and 2 nights.  The care was excellent and I had no complications after the surgery.  I am curently 3 1/2 months post op.  I have been in a stall since xmas and recently dropped 7 lbs.

Hi how r u now?

How have you been doing? I had a band for over three years it just slipped and had to be removed. I am in the process now of redoing my workup yo get approved for the sleeve.

Kelly I would like to hear how you are doing. I'm considering the sleeve. I too have a failed band and am about to try and have it removed. I am considering the sleeve as well. I'm nervous and have so many questions. I would love to have someone to talk to.

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE DOING GREAT!! DID YOUR DOCTOR HAVE YOU DO THE THREE WEEKS OF PROTEIN SHAKES/LIQUID DIET TOTALLY FOR THE FIRST THREE WEEKS YOU WERE POST-OP?? I HAVE NOT HAD MINE YET BUT I THINK THAT IS THE WAY I AM UNDERSTANDING THE PROGRAM (GOING THROUGH DUKE)

Betsy I would like to hear how you are doing. I'm considering the sleeve. I live in NC and sounds like you may. I'm nervous and have so many questions.
