    September Surgeries!

    Yes 100%! I’m 5 weeks today post op and I discussed the same thing with my nutritionist. She said it might be sensitivity to the temperature of the drink. I’ve noticed that cold drinks seem to make my tummy cramp. Hot and room temp have been fine. Maybe pay attention to that and see if you can tolerate water at room temp. Good luck and let the journey begin!
  2. I’m 5 weeks post op and I’m losing weight at a fairly good clip. Question: when the doctor says you should expect to lose 75% of the total amount you need to lose (or whatever the percentage is) from the surgery, should you expect that to happen continuously? Or will should I expect to hit a plateau before the 75%? Does that make any sense?

    Soft Diet

    I get to start my soft diet next week. Hurrah! No more liquid diet! Does anyone have any hints, suggestions, recipes? Thanks!
  5. I had my surgery at Vandy in Lebanon on Sept 7th. We’re in the same program!

    I had the same exact thing happen. I’m a cash pay as well and I was postponed from Aug to Sept. I had all the same thoughts too. My surgery was last week and I’m so happy I did it and it’s over. The waiting and the liquid diet is really the hardest part. Breathe and go to your happy place.

    I had the same thing happen. I was postponed a month. It’s so disappointing and really hard to deal with emotionally. You get your nerve up to do it and then it’s instantly taken away.

    September Surgeries!

    I’m 5 days post op. I’ve had a very difficult day 3 with severe constipation and cramps. That finally subsided and I’m starting to feel better. I’m still suffering from gas from the surgery but even that’s better now. I was doubting my decision a few days ago and I even asked my doctor “what the hell have I done” but I’m back feeling good about it. I didn’t do a ton of research and support groups prior to making my decision because I didn’t want to read negative comments. My Mom died two years ago and I saw myself going down the same road so I knew I had to make a change regardless of which direction I went.
