I've been reading the forums here and there over the past six weeks, so I thought I might introduce myself.
I've been on the Optifast for 4 weeks to get towards my pre-Op weight (was 147kg) I'm now 136kg's so i'm ready. I get sleeved Monday. Dr Chris Couch. Perth.
These forums have been helpful, for instance I didn't know about loose skin, and the initial sore burning from sipping fluids post op. I'd rather know now and the reading here has been reassuring. And as you'd expect I have a few questions.
How many nights were you in hospital?
How did people here deal with the pain, was there much?
How long before you could drive, i'm told to wait a week.
Wish me luck in my efforts to escape the fat suit i've been trapped inside these past 14 years looking forward to seeing my old self again sometime soon.
