    I’m curious. How many ounces of fluids were you guys able to get down the first few days post op? Today so far I have 9oz. I’m worried I won’t be getting enough. Also what were you able to tolerate?

    February Surgery ?

    So this is a day 3 for me and I’m feeling better than days 1&2. Much better. I’ve had a hard time sleeping and The thought of drinking anything other than diluted apple juice makes me cringe. I definitely know I don’t want anything hot, only cold stuff. I’m not sure what else I might want other than the apple juice..

    Surgery is in the morning. Is it weird that I’m kinda bummed that I don’t have a surgery twin on the forum? Anyway, I’m so nervous and excited at the same time. I think more excited though. I’m about to drink some broth, take my meds and go to bed. See you all on the other side!

    February Surgery ?

    Goodnesss yes, exactly. I feel such an overwhelming need to make sure everything is good to go beforehand. But I think you're right I'll have some help along they way, so maybe all isn't bad. I'll try to keep reminding myself.

    My anxiety is SO ON. I have had the most stressful 2 weeks and I feel so unprepared. I am an over-planner and over-prepare for everything and things aren't currently going as planned so im totally freaking out. I had to take five minutes to meditate earlier today cause I felt like I was going to lose it. Crazy thing is I'm not really too nervous about the procedure itself- just everything being in order. Sigh. I wish I wasn't such a neat freak/perfectionist.

    I have a desk job as well. I’m scheduled for the 21st and I put in for 2 weeks off. I asked my friend who had the sleeve done a couple years ago and he said 2 weeks should be fine for a desk job.

    I went to the bathroom pretty bad today... and I'm having a really hard time with the mind games. I want something sweet SO BAD. But I've started a low carb pre-op diet.
  15. My pre-op appointment is tomorrow and I kept telling myself that I would write down questions for my Surgeon as they came up in my mind BUT I didn’t... what are some good questions I can ask at tomorrow’s appointment? I’ll be sitting with a note pad thinking about what came to mind the past couple of weeks but I’d appreciate input.
  16. Ask away & clear your head !!
  17. One night, thank God!

    February Surgery ?

    So I had my pre-op appointment earlier todat. My surgeon said the week before to eat low carb and the day before surgery i'll be doing liquids. Not bad at all in my opinion! He also prescribed a drug for nerve pain that I have to take the day before to minimize pain post-op.
  20. I ened up asking: -How long the procedure takes -How long my stay will be at the hospital -What the likelihood of developing GERD is -Questions about the drug he prescribed for me to take the day before (i.e. what it does)
  21. Thanks for the input! He clarified that for me.
  22. Ugh I cannot wait to feel freee while tying my shoes!!! This body feels so foreign to me because I was in shape for so long. Good to hear that you’ll be able to get foot surgery and I hear you loud and clear on that breast reduction. I thought I had back problems when I was a C cup. Lord have mercy... little did I know. that makes a lot of sense. I hope that I’ll be able to learn to love my appearance for what it is while going through the recovery process. I think most of my life I’ve based my confidence on the opinion of others instead of my own. Although I’m sure it’ll take my mind a while to catch up with my body. Thank you for sharing!!!
