    Post op struggles

    Glad to hear you are doing better Hoosieroz...I'm making lots of notes as I'm booked for the 22nd. I've read that Buscopan is good for pain in the tummy,so it's good to know that it's good for settling too. I didn't realise you had to start having shakes so soon after surgery...just when I thought I was going to see the end of them..LOL. Good luck for your speedy recovery..
  3. I'm having a sleeve...woo hooooo !!!!!

    any march sleevers ?

    Hi March Sleevers.. Officially today I am now now a sleever. I was initially booked in the for the gastric band plication,switched surgeons and told my new surgeon what I thought I should be having...but now third time lucky I am switching to a sleeve..I'm a tad scared...as my Mum keeps reminding me of the 85% of stomach that won't be there anymore. Are you all going to be in hospital 4 days too? Starting Optifast tomorrow..booked in for the 22nd...that's 14 days away....... !!!!!!!!!

    Going to Dr Craig Taylor tomorrow...how to get there?

    Thanks for the advice everyone...driving it is..
  6. Hi Dr Taylor devotees...I've got my appointment tomorrow and am wondering what is the best way to get there? Is there a railway station nearby and is it a long walk,or is easy to find street parking and not be worried about getting a parking ticket? Also I have blood test results from another surgeon that I went to but deciding against going with him for surgery...does Dr Taylor send you for blood tests before surgery?

    4 months banded and 18kg lighter :)

    Well done....you look fantastic!!!!
  8. Well thanks for the feedback ladies...looks like ill have to make friends with my thighs..lol
  9. Just wanting to know who has suffered a lot of jiggly areas since surgery? Of course I'm expecting to have saggy skin as I'm nearly 43...but I haven't had kids so that surely has to be in my favour? I've aaaaaaaaaaaaaaalways had big thighs...and now I'm worried that once I have surgery they'll go reeeeally jiggly and saggy.For as long as I can remember I have always been extremely conscious of them...so much so I won't even swim at the beach!!! I know that exercise can help tone certain areas,but I know from over the years there isn't many exercises that tone the inner thighs... Has any one experienced problems in their thigh areas?
