Hi Fellow August Banders,

Just curious...how many days does everyone plan to take off of work for the surgery? Also...for those of you who are keeping this top secret, what have you told your employer when requesting the time off?

My surgery is on a Friday and I'm thinking of taking off Monday as well and going back Tuesday...hope this is enough time....I am a little nervous.....:wub:

I took a week off... and just told them I was having surgery. It's not anyone's business WHAT surgery I'm having...

Well good morning everyone! It is now exactly 48 hours till "HAPPY BAND-LAND" As far as the diet, haven't cheated one bit! But I have been stuffing my face with sf icecream, sf pudding, lf yogurt (yum), and cream Soup. I have also been peeing like a racehorse, and managed to loose 10 pounds of Water i'm sure! Been going to bed at 8:00 so tomorrow will hurry up and get here! Going to be packing my hospital bag today, I know they have lists here and in my personal papers....Will be reading up on that. I ain't going to a beauty contest, so I really am not to worried about it.

I hope I have enough creamy stuff to last today as I won't be going to town until tomorrow.....remember I live up in the mountians, don't get to town everyday. All the demons are pretty quiet in my head today,can't think of much else to say!

PEACE OUT till later

KELLY:biggrin:

Hey all my fellow August Rushers,

Along with this great site I have gotten a lot of positive energy and encouragement from Gloria and Sandi .

They have had long term success and don't mind sharing so come and join us over there too.

Being so close to surgery I'm perusing the net for all the insight and support and encouragement I can get.

Preparing... :wub: so fun! ;) it usually takes me a few days just to place the furniture how I want it... Nevermind the set-up and decorating!!!... Apparently I am WAY excited b/c the furniture set-up is COMPLETE! Heh.... Bring on the band! :)

Hi all! I am being banded on August 10th! I am on day 4 of an all liquid pre op diet. It really hasn't been that bad. I'm excited to be finally on my way of permanent weight loss! This site has been fantastic for gathering information and support...and I cant wait for that to continue! Emsey, do you live in Belgium? That is where I met my husband....and a beautiful country. I look forward to seeing all of the hope and possibilities ahead of us!

No I'm in the UK.. going over to Belgium on Wednesday for 4 nights... on my own! bit nervous!

Its much cheaper over there than the UK and the hospitals are just as good.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
