Today I am 8 weeks post op! It’s been a tough old 8 weeks but it has been so worth it! The first picture was yesterday and the second picture was the day before my pre-op diet on the day of my best friends wedding! There is 4st6lb/62lbs/28.1kg difference in these photos and I am already feeling so much more confident with how my face looks! I have a chin and a jaw line againπŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #vsguk #surgeryabroad #vsg #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeveuk #newleafwls #newleaf #praguewls #vsgfamily

This community on instagram is honestly the most welcoming, friendly and heartwarming community I have ever come across! πŸ’ͺ🏼 I know we have our tough days on this journey but there are so many amazing people that are there to support you, even if it’s just a β€œthinking of you” it really goes a long way! πŸ˜‡πŸ‘‘ So I suppose what I’m trying to say is THANKS.. you do you WLS queens!

I bought clothes yesterday.. I’d told myself I wasn’t going to buy myself new clothes because it’s pointless πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I bought this tshirt in a size, if not 2 sizes, smaller than I thought I was, so I could have something to wear in the next few months. I put it on today to see how far out of wearing it I’d be... turns out, it fits! πŸ™ˆ And not just sort of fits, it fits perfectly! 😱😱 This is the first picture I’ve taken of myself in forever where I actually look at it and can see a weight loss, where I can see a waist! #NSV πŸŽ‰ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #vsguk #surgeryabroad #vsg #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeveuk #newleafwls #newleaf #praguewls #vsgfamily

So Julys stats are in... 10lbs lost is a massive achievement but to say I’m not a little disappointed would be a lie... I had two really good months previously and would have loved to see a bigger number this month. But I know that 10lbs is still such a massive achievement, considering I actually put on weight during my hospital stay the last couple weeks due to the amount of fluids pumped into me πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ Still here’s to a better August! 🀞🏼🀞🏼 β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #vsguk #surgeryabroad #vsg #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeveuk #newleafwls #newleaf #praguewls #vsgfamily

My first mini #NSV ... picture quality is really crap because I’m stood in a dark cinema and zoomed all the way in on my camera, BUT this tshirt used to hug my hips and waist, but now look at how it hangs!! You can’t even see that I have a waist and hips in this photo because the top is so big now! I love it! πŸ’œπŸ’œ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #vsguk #surgeryabroad #vsg #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeveuk #newleafwls #newleaf #praguewls #vsgfamily

I am feeling so much better since leaving the hospital, I even took the Boyf out for dinner at the weekend to thank him for all his support these last few months.. this is my dinner after I’ve finishedπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ boxed it up and it’s been another 2 meals at home.. the salmon by itself has filled me up and I didn’t even touch the mash or veg πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ trying to get in the fluid and the protein but it’s oh so difficult! Soft foods for another 4 weeks 😴 if anyone has any favourite meals/snacks they had on the soft food stage then throw them my way! Getting a little bored of the same things everyday! πŸ˜‚ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #vsguk #surgeryabroad #vsg #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeveuk #newleafwls #newleaf #praguewls #vsgfamily

HONEY I’M HOOOOOME!! πŸ’œ Thank you everyone for all your well wishes and prayers! I am FINALLY home! I’ve got to stay on soft foods for another month to help protect my stomach, but I’m sure I can deal with that rather than the alternative of being back in the hospital! I have never been so happy to see my own house and bed πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸŽ‰ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #vsguk #surgeryabroad #vsg #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeveuk #newleafwls #newleaf #praguewls #vsgfamily

Hi, my name is Georgie and I have successfully just finished a cup of tea without it going cold. πŸ˜… Two-three days ago I wasn’t even managing a quarter of this cup before having to stop. πŸŽ‰ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #vsguk #surgeryabroad #vsg #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeveuk #newleafwls #newleaf #praguewls #vsgfamily

Day 11: Today has been a good day! I never thought I’d say those words! I had my endoscopy with dilatation yesterday and it went so well! It was a traumatic experience and I never want to have another one again but it worked! I’ve been eating and drinking last night and today and I’m feeling good πŸ˜… I’ve currently got TPN and fluids going into my picc line as shown here, which has definitely helped in getting me back to feeling almost 100%! They’re weaning me off the TPN now that I can eat without vomiting! Whilst they were in my stomach yesterday they also noticed that I am producing an unusually high amount of bile and acid which was causing the reflux.. they’ve upped my omeprazole to 40mg twice daily to help combat that, so hopefully that, combined with how well the dilatation went I will be home in no time! I could cry with happiness 😭 (please note: bruises and pin holes all over my arm are from them trying to take blood so many times with my shitty veins πŸ™„ the other arm looks exactly the same if not worse πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ) β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #vsguk #surgeryabroad #vsg #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeveuk #newleafwls #newleaf #praguewls #vsgfamily

Still here.. day 9; had a nutrition picc line inserted. It goes in through the vein in my upper arm, up across my shoulder and the end sits down just above my heart in the vein. I was awarded with most difficult patient ever by the picc line team because my veins are so useless and stubborn, which I already knew, but the team didn’t believe me when I told them! πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #vsguk #surgeryabroad #vsg #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeveuk #newleafwls #newleaf #praguewls #vsgfamily

Feeling like a pin cushion... was admitted to the hospital via a&e late Saturday night for dehydration and nausea. Been here ever since, had ct scans, barium swallow, blood test after blood test, IV fluids, two different antisickness meds.. yet I still can’t keep anything down but they can’t find anything wrong with me. It’s really starting to get to me now. Why did I ever do this surgery?! It’s caused me nothing but sickness and grief πŸ˜” β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #vsguk #surgeryabroad #vsg #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeveuk #newleafwls #newleaf #praguewls #vsgfamily #fedup

Obviously I’ve already had weight loss surgery and I’ve already thought about the effect that might have on my tattoos... but I was just wondering if they had any first hand experiences of how their weight loss has affected their tattoos? I’ve got two quite large ones on either thigh and I’ve been wondering how they might look after I’ve lost a lot of weight... πŸ€” #vsguk #surgeryabroad #vsg #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeveuk #newleafwls #newleaf #praguewls #vsgfamily #wlstattoo #tattoowls

8 days post op! #transformationtuesday These pictures on the left were taken on day 1 of my pre-op diet, and the pictures on the right were taken 1 week post-op! So 5 weeks difference between these two pictures and I’m already down 2st 12lbs! 😱😱 I saw my nephew the other day and weighed him, I have lost the same weight as my 2 year old nephew! It’s crazy! Struggling big time getting my fluid in and any liquid food! πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ But I’m already so happy with what I’ve achieved and can’t wait for the future! πŸ’œπŸ’œ #vsguk #surgeryabroad #vsg #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeveuk #newleafwls #newleaf #praguewls #vsgfamily
