    Anyone from the NC area

    I uses Dr. Barbat, great doctor at Atrium. I love the office, everyone is so great to work with. The only thing I wish they have is the support groups but they are canceled due to covid. I am so excited to meet someone near me.

    I'm from Shelby NC but had my surgery in Charlotte. Its nice to finally meet someone that is dealing with the same thing, near by. I had surgery the 14th of sept so feel free to reach out with the questions.

    I felt the same way last week when I was able to start soft food. You definitely need to try the Ricotta bake!

    Anyone go into surgery alone?

    I went in alone and did fine. I am single and didn't want to make anyone sit there waiting on me plus the hospital was 1.5 hrs from where I live. I had my brother drop me off and pick me up since I couldn't drive and the hospital was great with calling my brother telling him everything that was happening. I would definitely keep a phone near you for boredom or maybe something on audible. I wish you the best and if you get nervous, feel free to post on the forums....there's usually always someone on to reply.

    Anyone for September 2020?

    Congratulations to everyone! I had my surgery on the 14th and am doing pretty well. I've been sick a few times due to eating too fast and will continue to keep training myself to fix that. My question to everyone is have you found an online accountability group that has a zoom, or whichever online forum, monthly group? Due to covid, my surgeons office has stopped all support groups and I feel like it would be beneficial to talk with others and hear how they are doing and suggestions for any issues that arise etc. I am on several FB groups but find that a lot of the post tend to be related to the same things and wanting others to tell them its okay to have soda or do things that they know we shouldn't be doing. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Post op pain

    I had my surgery on 9/14 and the throbbing lasted for about 3 days and I still feel pain when I sit or get up too fast on the right side of my stomach.

    I'm glad to hear all is going well. I had surgery on the 14th and im feeling better but still hurt when I stand or like you try to sleep. Sleeping is terrible and is really the only time I wish my surgeon prescribed pain meds. The first two days were constant throbbing but I found walking to help and again wasn't anything I couldn't live through. I have been able to drink all the fluids and protein required everyday, so I am happy about that. I've been loving all the bariatricpal soups, hot chocolate and cappuccino so I can have the protein and fluids at the same time.

    I cant believe you've not already had surgery, you look great based on your picture. Have you lost a lot of weight leading up to surgery?

    I'm not required to do the 2 wk liquid diet. Mine is more like keto but also two weeks and also started on 9/1. Im lucky but was worried up until i found out my surgeon didn't require it.
