15th Feb 2015. A month after my Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy. Now, how much did i lose?
Before surgery: 155.5kg. Now 145.5kg. 10kg down. YEEHAAA.
It is not just the kg that matters to me. How i feel is important too. While before surgery i could not walk and talk at the same time, as i was panting heavily, now, i am able to do that with no problems at all! Some more improvements include:-
1. No more snoring
2. Can go up and down the stairs
3. Able to zumba or brisk walk for 50 mins straight
4. I can jump. No really. Can jump!
5. I can fit into a size 8 shoes (from 10)
6. Generally i feel lighter. (Duh! 10kg lighter)
It feels so good. That aside, there are some things to note. I vomited quite a number of times on my 4th week. I suspect it is the beef i ate – i cannot remember if its Dr Shanker or one of my Dieticians, Hui Xin who said maybe i needed to chew more. Another suspicion is that maybe I am drinking too fast, before the food get settled in. I do remember Dr Shanker explaining this to me… the stomach is like a washing machine. When food enters, it processes the food (grinds them) – so imagine the washing machine is spinning dry and you pour water – of course it disrupts the process. Hence, i vomit. oooh i see.
It is not an easy process yet. I cannot eat carbs yet and the biggest ‘pain’ now is i am easily weak. There are times i will shiver and be extremely lethargic. Macam Puasa!! (Like as if i was fasting).
Anyway, here are some before and after pics.
Let’s hope i can get my weight down further 🙂
Many people asked me this – should i go to SGH or another hospital. Well, i have only been on this surgery once you know… and that’s in SGH. So… i am sorry, i dont have comparative table to share.
To me, SGH is the best. I LOVE U SGH LIFE CENTRE. (Enuff?)
