Today I started my pre-op diet for surgery with Dr Aceves next Friday. I worked last night, and I'm not much of a cook, but I decided to make some bacon and eggs for Breakfast. It smelled sooooooo good, my 24 year old son woke up and had breakfast with me at 6AM!!! Hmmmmm....unexpected benefit?!:biggrin0:

Well wasn't that a pleasant surprise ... I don't know if even the smell of eggs and bacon would have been enough to get either of my boys out of bed!

Good luck on your diet. I started mine today too. Are you going by yourself? Judy

That is great! My son will usually get up early, but nothing gets my daughter up before noon on weekends. I swear, she sleeps half her life away.

Ernesto is a pretty cool guy, but his driving scared the bejeebers out of me!! Concentrate on the beautiful scenery along the way, lol.

Yes, I am going alone. My son is taking me to where I will be picked up by Ernesto, at the long term parking lot just this side of the border. You?

It's not too bad if you're being picked up in Calexico -- the hospital is very near the border so you're really not in the van very long -- and the trip from the hospital to the resort is only 2 miles. Now, can't speak of the trip from San Diego, as we were picked up at the AA Parking lot in Caleixco. Parking was only $3/day and it is gated with a guard 24/7 which was a comfort.

      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.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 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!!

        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 .
