    June 2019!!! Surgery Siblings!!!

    I was originally told that my surgery would be scheduled sometime at the end of June. Talked with the surgeons office this week for a check in and my surgeon has taken the month of June off to travel. I’m excited for him but a little bummed at the same time. This pushes my surgery back to mid/end of July. School starts mid August and I’m worried I won’t have enough healing time before I go back to work....trying not to stress out!

    June 2019!!! Surgery Siblings!!!

    Yes, I am panicking and am a bit depressed as well. I think I have researched too much. I've read medical abstracts about complications, bulletin boards where people list all their bad experiences, etc., etc. I am questioning whether I picked the best surgeon. Another one in my area has done 2000 bariatric surgeries and has never had a single death. I only have very basic information about my own surgeon. He said one patient died from alcohol poisoning after drinking large quantities of alcohol early in his healing process. Hope I can calm down and be more optimistic before my surgery.

    June 2019!!! Surgery Siblings!!!

    Guys, they called from press mission to schedule my pre class and final tests today and I panicked a little. Maybe because I just realized I am 12 days(almost 11) away and that eating is literally about to stop. 🤣 I guess it’s just getting really real now and I’ve been talking about this so long I feel like maybe a part of me thought I would never get here. Is anyone else Panicking a little? I’m afraid I’m going to break the rules, hurt myself or worst of all, not lose weight.

    Do You Do This?

    I was one of those people. Post-op now I feel like I have more control of both my emotions and hunger and although I've had some stress and been tempted to eat an entire box of doughnuts or something, I was able to say "No, I don't need it and it's not going to make anything better."

  13. I took a two-week cruise two months post-op sleeve and it was easy to watch what I ate by focusing on staying hydrated and making good choices of protein before anything else. I don't drink, so alcohol wasn't an issue for me. I think you can do this!

    So full and nauseated

    Wouldn't your nausea be morning sickness and your hunger be pregnancy-related? Have you talked to your bariatric office for advice?

    Pre-op diet blues

    It's good practice for how you'll be eating post-op. You can do it!

    June 2019!!! Surgery Siblings!!!

    I'm Samantha I'm 26 and I'm around 390 and I'm having the bypass on June 6th! I feel like it's been a struggle to get here from the seminar at the very beginning. My Dr doesn't require a pre op diet just a 24 hr fast before surgery. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app
  17. I don't see the two as having any relationship to the other. Disc herniations don't just go away. Are you seeking chiropractic or other care for your back? Take care.

    Weight Gain 1yr post VGS

    You haven't failed, my goodness, you kept 64 pounds off! That's GREAT! You will be able to get those 14 pounds back off with tracking your calories, getting in 64 oz of water, and getting in 60 oz of protein daily. You can do this!

    June 2019 Surgery Siblings!

    Weight on 5/14 was 320. I started on pureed low carb foods, protein shakes, broth, and water on 5/15 to give myself an extra two weeks on the preop diet. Weighed today....already down to 315.... 5 lbs in a week!! Already moving in the right direction.

    I’m in corrections but I already had 10 years plus before my surgery. Went from 280 to 150. Body has settled at 180. I’m 5’10 so this is kinda my goal weight. Maybe 10 pounds less. I’ll answer any questions you have. Sleeved October 2017

    You could come to dinner! I made that plate for hubby and then cut off some of the meat for myself with a few veggies. It was a huge chop. You, GreenT, and I could have shared and still had leftovers!

  25. I would like to here from some members that may have had weight gain a year out from surgery. I know it’s from my eating habits and poor exercise regime. I have started back this week to exercise and I need to work on improving my eating habits. I started at 250, my lowest was 172, and right now I’m 186. My ultimate goal was to get to 150. I feel like such a failure, one of my biggest fears of having the surgery was failing and I feel that has happened. I looking for encouragement, guidance and I’m hoping that being honest and up front in a large group will help with accountability. Thank you for your support in advance. MKT

    I'm so frustrated with my GI doctor

    So I don't know what happened but I received a call from the scheduling department for my surgery. I have no clue how they got the clearance because I was still going back and forth with the drs office and the insurance. I have my pre-op appointment next Thursday and then the Thursday after that my surgery! Thanks for all of your input! Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app
