    Ok I'm 30 hrs after my sleeve and going ok. Biggest complaint is nausea. Have a drain but it's just a bit tender, no shoulder tip pain either. Am a little thirsty and taking the smallest of sips. Makes my stomach sort of contract & I get like a big hiccup! All in all, it's not too bad at all. My noisy inconsiderate neighbors are annoying me more!!

    2 sleeps to go!!! Am so excited! I've got that niggling worry about my liver & optifast efforts. I've stuck to it as best I could so about 95% I think. I'll be devastated if he can't operate. I'm getting the sleeve, so I'll try my best to keep u updated xxx

    Hi everyone. It's comforting to see others are struggling on optifast too - it's horrible!! But I have lost 4kg in 14 days. Although am really only doing it for my liver. I have only 4 days til surgery & til now super excited. Now I'm getting a little nervous. Just want to wake up & b post op! I guess I'm doubting myself as to how well I'll go. I mean, if I could control myself I wouldn't b obese in the first place. How is everyone else going?
