    How many days needed off work for a sleeve op?

    I took 3 weeks and needed every second of it. just the driving to work part hurts not worth the risk to go back any sooner

    Dietician circle of care

    I went to her once and never went back she seemed like a stoner from Byron bay . ( nothing against Byron bay just an expression ) she is very impersonal , doesn't listen -doesn't care-doesn't understand . I did officially complain as did about 4 others in my group of sleevers at the time but nothing was done about it as a result I never went back for any of my other appointment NOT ONE. considering all those extra appointments are included in the price of my sleeve I tried to get my money back for that portion but they wouldn't.

    My first stall! 😩

    hello, every single time I hit a stall I drank more water and ate something completely random and out of the blue, seemed to move things along just by mixing it up from the same thing everyday.. water water water

    Tattoo help

    hello, i have 7 tattoos some before my surgury 5 after it. im 45 and have lost 55 kilos in 16 months and my skin did tighten but i have mine on my ankle, wrist, side of leg-ankle area & back of neck where the skin has bounded back nice and firm. ( the ankle is great as you can wear jeans or long pants or a long dress if you have a wedding or nice occasion to go to and the skin is generally nice and tight. i have seen many of the uv tattoo apparently im told they fall out very easily and are lucky to last 6 months to 1 years as the ink can not take the same amount of use as in swimming showing bathing . so think carefully and read reviews if going for the uv as it would seem a shame to have to get it re-done and somewhere else as that skin would need to heal etc.

    Wow! a miracle just happened - husband willing to be supportive

    so happy for you without close support this is so much harder. ps. did he ever really say why he wasnt supporting you in the first place ? like fear of u being hurt or just not feeling you need to take this step in the first place? ( just wondered )
