    1800 does seem like a lot. I had my sleeve 6 weeks ago and I'm lucky to get in 500 calories a day. With the sleeve I just don't feel hungry and I fill up on just a few ounces of food. When is your surgery? Hopefully itwill get easier for you until then.

    It would be July for me also. There is no way I could have enjoyed myself even a little at three weeks post op.

    My surgeon required 3 months smoke free. It's the best thing along with surgery that I have ever done for myself!!!!!!

    Hello Mara Jayne

    I had mine done years ago, I was the same size as you and went down to a C cup. It is one of the best things I have ever done!!!!!! I was finally able to wear button up shirts that fit, and when people talked to me my face was the focus not the massive breast. Best of luck to you. I also did not experience any pain from the surgery!!!!!!!

    Ughhh that is tough poppy, I am almost weeks out and have stalled for the last 10 days so frustrating. I'm sorry you are going through this, I guess our bodies have a mind of it's own. Hugs

    I'm not sure about lap band I had the sleeve laproscopic and I am three weeks out and still tender. The first two weeks were pretty difficult. You will probably feel better sooner, keep walking and sipping. Every day gets better.
