    RoseQuartz56 got a reaction from FluffyChix in Doctor’s Appt Tomorrow But...   
    Hello!

    It’s currently midnight for me, and I have a doctor’s appt at 9 am for post-op. I can’t sleep and I think I’ve developed a cold. My ears hurt when I swallow, my nose is constantly either runny or stuffed, and my throat feels practically bruised. My head is a bit warm, and I’m unsure how much I’ll actually be able to sleep tonight. I’m super tired, but my body is aching so much, it’s hard to relax.
    I’m unsure if I’m allowed to cancel a post-op, honestly. Do I cancel and reschedule, or wait for my next post op (scheduled in 2 weeks)? It may seem silly to ask what I’m allowed, but I really don’t want to do the wrong thing.
    What should I do? Help!

    Hi!

    I’m officially 2 weeks out of surgery and facing some dilemmas.

    This week has been a tough learning week for me. I recently learned that unless I take my daily meds with a hot beverage (I like decaf), it takes me 2 hours to take all my medicine and then recover from the nausea. With the Decaf, I can finally take my medicine more quickly, but I still do have some nausea, although it’s not quite as bad with cold liquid.
    I’m at the point that all liquids nauseate me. I get really thirsty and just thinking about drinking Water makes me want to throw up. I absolutely cannot tolerate gatorade anymore, and now just the smell is enough to make me gag.
    I know I need to constantly get fluids in, but the only way I can right now is sucking on ice. This was working fine yesterday, but today my entire mouth is sore. I have cuts and burns on my lips, tongue, and gums because of the constant icy friction from yesterday.
    I think if my nausea continues for the next couple days, I’ll tell my doctor. Right now I just need to know if anyone else has been through this, and what they did to get through this.
    Help a nauseous girl out please!

    I’m just about 2 weeks out of surgery now, and the only foods I’m allowed right now are essentially baby foods. I can have very soft scrambled eggs, refried Beans, and apple sauce, but I’m craving normal foods. Big time. At the top of the list today, I’m craving a giant bowl of salad with ranch. Yesterday all I was craving was sushi.
    I feel like I’m going insane. I’m super happy with this gastric sleeve and have already lost 20 lbs since day of surgery, but I’m already having such a hard time not being able to eat the foods I want.
    Have you gone through this? How did you make this better? Please help a girl out!

    I also was sleeved on the 22nd. My schedule is WK 1- Clear Liquids & broth. WK2 - Protein Shakes, cream Soups (no lumps) WK3 & 4- pureed food. Fat-free gravies, SF pudding, low fat ricotta, small curd cottage cheese.
    WK 5-skinless chicken breast, fish filet, turkey...
    So far, I'm over-lapping weeks 1 & 2. I'm staying with clear liquid most of the day, with a shake for 1 meal. I haven't been feeling hungry, so I'm not going to rush it.

    Ya know every Dr. and nutritionist are different I've saw some people who could eat a week out. Regardless the struggle is real no matter where we are in our journey and I hope every day,hour,and minute gets better and the scale keeps dropping! Cravings so far are hard. They dont hit me until I have to cook or smell food sometimes. Hope it gets better for us all hang in there.

    You are very lucky! I cant have anything other than broth, shakes,water pretty much and I was sleeved on the 23rd of July. I can move to pureed next week and am probably gonna buy baby food to be honest. I would love to have some eggs! Cravings are hard to deal with I agree I made dinner chicken and steak green Beans and garlic cheese toast and I got was free smells. Torture but I dont want to harm my new tummy and make it work digesting food before it is ready so I just drink more Water 😫

    If surgery is tomorrow it is usually clear liquids.. No pudding. Nothing after midnight for the anthestia. If u have an online portal for your hospital check and see if they emailed you instructions. They told me only a small sip of Water in am to take my syntheroid. If you need to take meds and are unsure take them with you and don't take before. Definately no blood pressure meds.

    Just double check your instructions, tho. I’m on Clear Liquids only the day before my surgery, so yogurt would be out (because that’s a full liquid).

    Hello, hello!

    Today is Saturday, only 2 days away from my surgery on Monday. I'm so excited! I have more energy than ever and I'm acting like a little kid at a carnival. Surgery seems to be the only thing I can talk about any more, and I'm beyond excited for this!
    I've had people asking if I'm scared, and I don't think I ever answer the way they want me to. If anyone asks me how I feel going into this, I tell them I've been dreaming of this surgery for years and am not in the least bit scared. This may be my first surgery, but that doesn't frighten me.
    I wanted to post on here because I wanted to share my happiness and I knew this would be a safe place to talk about this!

    That's tricky. If you had more time i'd suggest doing a bowel cleanse to get a bit more weight off. I'd think 10 lbs would be fine but it depends on how strict your Dr is about that.
    I'm crossing my fingers that all goes well and that you have a great surgery and recovery

    Hello!

    I was a very active user last year, but due to personal matters, I was unable to have my surgery last year and fell into a depression because of it. Thankfully, I'm back and with amazing news! My surgery is scheduled in 10 days; July 22, 2019. I can't express my joy to anyone in the way I feel it, so I knew I could turn to this forum. It's a scary excitement to have, but altogether good.
    I genuinely am so happy I can have my surgery soon and get my life on track. I know all bodies are summer bodies, all shapes and sizes are beautiful... but I'm 21 with diabetes and this surgery is just.. a second chance. I know how lucky I am, and I'm so happy things are finally working my way
