    Just got a call saying my surgery time has been push back till 1:00 pm. Well that sucks. Well all I can say, is everyone make room on the losers bench. I'll be there with you tomorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with all the others scheduled for tomorrow and the rest of the week.

    Yes walk walk and walk. Also your stool could be very hard and needs softening. Try a glycerin suppository and of course you can always try a brown bomb (warm prune juice and MOM) but could be hard to get down. Always works in about 8 hours. Random thoughts from a nurse.

    Sounds like you are doing great! I also feel like could drink "too much" so I am trying to make sure not to do more than 2 swallows and then wait 15 minutes or so. If I drink too fast, I get a pain in my sternum until that little burp comes up. So weird, I think I'm the inky one not eager to start food! Lol

    Well I made it!! In recovery feeling pretty good except for the mild gas pain and dryness, it's tolerable. Everyone said I was a perfect patient. I saw pictures, my liver was small, yeah!! Sipped a little so far so good. Can't wait to get up and walk! I hope I don't start feeling any worse!! Cheers to all

    Wow guys, I can't believe the time has almost come, my surgery is tomorrow afternoon. The hardest part will be tomorrow as I don't check into the hospital til 1pm and I can't have anything other than a sip of H2O with meds all day. Since I finished my exams on Thursday, I have kept myself really busy with activities I won't be able to do for a while and it has really helped with the nervousness.
    I went cross country skiing on Sunday and to see the Hobbit. Today I went down-hill skiing - can't wait for my boots to not be tight around my legs, that was just plainly annoying to me today, I also had more muscle cramping than normal from being out of shape, skiing the day before and lack of carbs. I just kept thinking about how good this should feel next winter.
    Thank you all for your posts and sharing, has made this journey a lot easier! See ya on the losers bench.
    Blessings and quick healing to all.

    -------As I write this note to you my new belly is in bubble heaven. I also have the runs today (TMI I know). Today is day 4 post op. can't wait to have some puréed hot Cereal just not sure what flavorings I'm permitted. Will see my surgeon and NUT on thurs dec 19 if I'm off pain meds by then. Hope the runs isn't worse with purée stage but I'm assuming it will be. Incision pain is tough but nothing compared to the hiatal hernia repair work, I feel it more than anything. May have to extend my leave due to the hernia recovery and not the VSG -- crazy. My surgeon only needed to use 2 medium incisions and 2 tiny ones to get the work done; thank God! See belly Pic below. Already Sick of broth and sugar free Jello (yuck)--- only like room temp water and ice chips -- sf Popsicles are ok if I lick very very slowly. Diet green tea room temp is ok and warm ginger tea is tolerable.
    Not sure how much I weigh now or how much I've lost but my family says they already see a loss in my face 4days out. Guess drinking only liquids for 5 days and fasting completely for 1 day will do that lol
    Feel Better soon! I pray that our 16-ers are recovering well or waiting patiently.

    Morning December Sleevers. Im on day two of my post-op. I was told my surgery only took 45mins. As soon as I was able to go to the bathroom I made laps around the halls. Walking really helped the gas pains but it also made me nauseous. My nurses were so nice and me feel comfortable. The first day I couldn't drink anything. This morning around 5 I was given a sf popsicle. I ate it no problem. I thank God for minimal pain. I hope everyone else feels the same.

    I came home and immediately started on Miralax. Second day home, MiraLAX and colace. Today, MiraLax, colace and milk of magnesia. That finally work and was no joke clearing out. If you're not taking anything, I would. A lot of folks end up in the ER needing help.

    Good luck with the pre-op. I found that the first three days were the hardest then it gets better. My diet wasn't all liquids so I'm sure that made it some what easier. I'm coming to the end of my pre-op days. Thought I would do just liquids tomorrow to clean the system before the big day Wednesday. Btw your surgery is on my birthday. I'll be sending out special wishes to all the sleepers that day.

    Try not so suck in any air when your sipping. Swallowing air can sure cause burping. Try keeping your mouth closed until the liquid hits your lips. Hope it helps.
