In a gastric sleeve surgery or vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG), the surgeon removes most of your stomach and forms the rest into a tube-shaped sleeve from your throat to your small intestine. These forums are for sleevers, potential sleevers and revisional sleevers! Talk about the VSG diet, nutritional supplements, weight loss and sleeve complications.
Hey you guys. Tomorrow is my psych appointment and I'm excited but nervous at the same time. I've been reading some forums about passing the evaluation. I made this psych appointment before I realized I needed an eval for surgery. I do suffer from depression so I was hoping to get on some time of medication for it. Now I'm nervous as hell because I do not want to fail the evaluation. I guess all I can do is be honest about my concerns with my doctor.
Also, my supervisor is being very understanding about me having to miss work sometimes for appointments. That made my day!
A week and a day since surgery. Last night was the first night I got actually sleep, clocking in 7 hours. Oddly enough it's left me tired all day, but I didn't nap.
2 days ago my gas pains subsided (woohoo!)
I have aches and pains and of course sharp little pains around all the incisions (6 + 1 where the drain was), and I can't take the tylenol with codeine because it makes me feel like I have vertigo.
I have started the countdown mentally to my soft food stage starting on Monday. Looking forward to that, can't wait to see if eggs and cheese will still be my friends.
I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?! Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!
