    I'm one week post op tomorrow and today is the best I have felt. I'm able to get all my Protein in usually around 80-90grams. I just started trying to do a couple small Snacks, yogurt and homemade sugar free pudding. I have no interest in food whatsoever so I'm basically eating because I know I have to. I'm down a couple pounds. I was hoping for more but I will take any loss I can get.

    Hi all. One week until surgery! Hard to believe it is almost here. Just staying focused and making sure I have laid the foundation for success. Prepping my pantry and starting to organize my items for the hospital.

    My Surgery was yesterday 10/7 with Hernia repair. I was miserable when i first got to my hotel but after a few hours things were all under control, walk walk walk, sip sip sip, have caught myself a couple of times with a mouth full of Water (like ummmmm NOPE). Clear Liquids continue for today then transition to full. Anyhow doing well, and I broke the surgery center record for stomach size, when i get that pic i might share, cause it was impressive.
    Now to continue to work on my head, make sure i get full benefits all around,
    Good luck all, stay the course, do what your supposed to prep wise, and post.

    My surgery is Friday (Oct 11)
    And I’m sooooo nervous and excited!
    I’m having outpatient surgery at a surgery center. I’m self pay, so I’m even more nervous. If anyone out there had out patient surgery, please tell me how you did! It’s here in the USA (California)
    I’m taking 6 weeks off from work to recover. My BMI is on the low side, 31. No one knows I’m having this surgery. They think I’m having a gallbladder removed. I’m praying that everything goes well and I reach my ultimate goal of 80lbs lost. But right now, all I can think about is, the what if’s.... what if I have complications, what if I only lose 10lbs, what if I can gain, what if, what if, what if! Arghhhhh!

    MwtRBP reacted to tdboutwell in Anyone gone to Blossom Bariatric (self-pay) in Las Vegas?   
    I underwent VSG at Blossom Bariatrics/Warm Springs Surgical Center on 1/24/19. My surgeon was Dr. Matt Apel. I have nothing but positive things to say. Their staff members were amazing, but more importantly, they were completely thorough in everything they did- from the pre-op work-up, to surgery, to the IV infusion the day after surgery. They even emailed me copies of the surgical report and pathology reports. Everything was spectacular. The hotel they put us in was nice, clean, and quiet. The presidential ground transportation they provided was also very convenient for out of towners like myself. I’m a registered nurse with a background in pre-op/post-op, so I tend to pay attention to things that most people don’t notice. I found absolutely nothing to critique. Every T was crossed, and every I was dotted. I honestly can’t think of a single thing to complain about. If your insurance won’t pay to have bariatric surgery done locally (and even if it does), then I 110% whole-heartedly recommend Blossom Bariatrics.

    I think @Cherylmilla has great advice! Thinking about it as 20 pounds closer to a safer surgery is such a great way to put it.
    I have also lost 20 pounds and talking to my doctor about the same concern at my last visit really helped me realize I'm making the right decision. I have lost the weight a number of times, but keeping it off has never been easy, plus it's getting harder to lose as I get older, so I'm ready to take control over my health in a way I feel confident will work for me. It's still just a tool, it will help, but not do all of the work for us, we have the knowledge now on how to do this successfully and it is going to aid us in our journey!

    It is completely normal to have those sorts of feelings before such a big life change! In fact it's probably better that way so you go into surgery making the best informed decision you can for yourself! Just stay here, use us as a form of support, and we'll all get through this together!

    I've lost 40 lbs and people are questioning why I'm doing it. I know how to lose, but I can never seem to keep it off. That's one of my 'whys.' Remember why you started your journey. This isn't the right path for everyone and I've fought myself on this for years, before deciding this is the path for me. I'm scared out of my mind and trying not to let my fear talk me out of this. I think it's cold feet for all of us in pre-op and we wouldn't be human if we didn't want to back out, at least once (or many times). You'll do wonderfully! Think of the 20 lbs lost as 20 lbs lost towards a safer surgery.

    Well I have the fitness, endoscopy, nutritionist, and 1 other appointments this next week. I'm also going to see a holistic chiropractor that believes I may have an energy block near my thyroid. Alot for one week, but with my schedule, appointment stacking makes it easier for me. Just for example, I don't have to be home till Monday, but I'm getting sent home on Friday evening, so I'll miss 3 days work prior to the 4 days I'll be off for these appointments.
