Well fellow AUGUST RUSH friends, guess what? The Dr office called me this morning and my surgery is tomorrow morning! 24 hours earlier than the previous 3 day early reschedule! I'm so excited, but also kind of bitchy cause, haven't had a period in 9 months, and I started spotting this morning (Murphey's Law). Oh well I'm not going to worry bout it and maybe it will just go away...lol

Oh yeah I have to take the poo-poo medicine today , well in a little while......Never done that before. Probably the next time I talk to all you fine people I will be banded.

That's all for now!

PEACE OUT

Oh... my father used to take that from time to time.

Yeah, you have to stay close to the facilities with that.

I never heard anybody say that they had to take a laxative the day before.

I was banded today. Pain on a scale of 1 - 10 is about a 3 or 4. Pain meds don't touch the gas bubble pain which is what is the worse. I'm having a very hard time trying to stay hydrated.

It took 2 nurses and 4 sticks to get the IV in, and the heprin shot burned like the dickens.

Hey everyone as I type I'm on the other side! I'm finally banded and I'm loving it. My pain level is a one. I had to gas pain just my throat is sry as ever but since I can't drink anything I'm living off biotene mouth wash and cotton swaps with Water.

EVERYONE BUY THIS MOUTH WASH IT HELPS SO MUCH!

the surgery was about 2 hours went in at 2 out at 4 and went right to my recovery room. Then I had about twenty visitors so it kept my mind off the soreness of were my port is located but a little morphine and I'm good!

I am so happy and today I finally told the world about my surgery and to my surprise everyone was supportive.

Good luck to everyone this month and please any questions message me

Ps. I'm so bored in the hospital

      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 .
