    Thank you for sharing your journey. My gastric bypass surgery is scheduled for August 18. My goal is 125 pounds also.
    You are really helping me to know what to expect. I’m scared and excited at the same time

    Hi,
    I also had that fear and just fear of the unknown ( will I be the only one to experience severe pain, will I have to be readmitted to er for not getting enough Water and nutrients, what if the gas and bloating never ends.....) among other thoughts. Now I’m 3 days post op and am having to remind myself that I had major surgery and that it’s going to take time to heal. I’m reminding myself of this everyday. Today, my pain seems more bearable, but I have only been able to take my Vitamins, medications and eat a popsicle. I have been walking more around my house.
    I will be praying that your fear subsides soon, and that each day will get better and better for you.
    You got this!

    Right around the corner. I think the best advice to give is to anticipate that you might have a roller coaster of emotions. That was the thing that shocked me the most. If you can try to bring headphones and download a streaming app so you can listen to calming music. I used Pandora and listened to the spa channel after my panic attack and then again at home when I felt frustrated. Walk the unit as much as you can tolerate to get rid of gas once permitted. It’s very painful when you are freshly operated on. Ask me anything if you have questions.

    Hi All! I’m new to this site, but I also waited 3 weeks for someone to call me about surgery. I reached out to my pcp and weight loss dr. Finally received my call late Monday afternoon, had my appointment and preop procedures today and scheduled for surgery tomorrow.
    Stay encouraged, when you get your call things are going to move quickly

    I don't intend to tell people, mainly because most people don't understand the surgery or the difficulties that some of us face. People who haven't struggled with their weight just don't get it and I have no intention of trying to educate them in the difficulties that brought me to surgery. Stick to your guns and don't feel guilty. You need to do what is right for you. Good luck.

    I haven't had my surgery yet, but from the few people I have told that I'm in the process of it, I can tell you what I have learned: people who do or have struggled with their weight are generally "safe" and supportive; people who have not, generally are not (save for my husband, thankfully!) Going forward, I'm only going to share this info with those whom I know will at least somewhat "get it." I don't need the negativity when this is already challenging enough. Once the weight is all gone, I'll be more open about it because nothing shuts naysayers up like results! It's nobody's business but your own. I'd just say that I've been working on it.
