  1. Got a surgery date of June 22 2022 !!! Who is with me ?!?!
  2. Just thinking …. This is a local hydration vitamin bar. Would anyone try this immediately Post op for wellness and recover just to get by the rough patch. It is medically supervised. Curious as too what everyone’s thoughts are who have been there and needed IV for dehydration after surgery. I will ask my surgeons thoughts when I go next.

    How long are you missing work?

    I only work 2 days a week… and we self schedule. So I just figured mine up last night ..If I miss 2 days of work (PTO days). I will have a total of 17 days off before I have to return. That’s doable 😊

    How long are you missing work?

    My surgeon told me he wants me off for 10 days. I’m gonna try and get about 14 days off. I am a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse and work 12-14 hr shifts.

    Hydration and vitamin bar ? 🤔

    I was just thinking “in addition” . I was looking at the hydration bags and not so much the vitamin injections right away. And Never in place of regular vitamin intake.

    I Feel this way too. I’m starting to look at everything I eat and wonder if I will ever be able to eat it again. It is making me realize how much pleasure I truly associate with food. I need to find something else to fulfill that feeling

    interview

    I had to be accepted to get an appointment. Meet BMI and coinciding morbidities and insurance coverage. My initial visit consisted of weigh in. General Health review, an assessment of what I understood of the surgery. They reviewed dedication involved in the process, diets tried and failed in the past. Nutrition questionnaire. Detailed checklist of approval process for surgeon and health insurance.

    I didn’t realize until researching the surgery that people travel to Mexico to have it done. Can I ask why that was your choice ? I am just curious. Sorry if that seems blunt but I am interested in why people to travel to have the surgery done. And where do you live if you don’t mind me asking.

    Yikes 3 weeks is a long time. That will be difficult I’m sure. Do they give you a discount for the prescription on your Optifast ? It sounds expensive ! I was curious.. lol… I went and read about the Optifast. That sounds like a really good product.

    I’m scared that This won’t work. I have gone and done something so drastic as to get 80%of my stomach cut out and I will be one of the people who lose 25lbs and my body just stops despite what I do. I am afraid I will have complications. That will make me regret the surgery. I’m just plan worried. Lol
