    You’re exactly right! A cystoscope isn’t very pleasant. I had one years ago. I hope you’re feeling ok and have a peaceful and restful night

    Hi! Welcome to an awesome forum! I had VSG on June 18th. I got so much advice and information here several months before my surgery and love checking in every day. If I ever have questions or wonder if others are going through something similar, all I have to do is check in here. You are sure to get lots of help from the kindest and most supportive folks!! Congratulations on your upcoming surgery! I couldn’t be happier that I had surgery!!

    Thanks! Seems I lost more pre surgery than I have post surgery. I’m keeping my chin up because I can feel the weight coming off even if it is slow. I’ll take that!

    Slowly losing

    Oh I’m so glad to know I’m not alone in this! I was sleeved on 6/18 and my weight loss has seemed slow too! Ive only lost 16 lbs since surgery. However, my clothes are really feeling loose. I decided instead of weighing often I would take measurements instead. Wow! I can really tell a difference. Plus my doctor has taken me off my diabetes meds, cholesterol med and blood pressure med! I felt the same as you when I looked at how some people lost SO much in the first month after surgery. I figure as long as I’m getting my protein and water in, the scale will eventually start moving again. I know I should be exercising more but for now all I’m doing is my daily walk. Let’s try not to compare ourselves too much to the lucky folks who lose 30 lbs in the first month! We’ll just keep up the good work and the weight will have to drop off.
