Scheduled for tomorrow - OMG!!!



Recommended Posts

Hi All

I am scheduled for tomorrow and so excited that I can hardly concentrate on anything.......

Now I feel as if I have forgotten all the info that I have accumulated over the last few months.

Can somebody please remind me of pre and post op procedures, diet etc.. I will go over the threads again. But I am all frazzled.

YAY :):sad0::lol0::lol0::lol0::lol0::lol0:

XBander - congratulations on your surgery -how exciting (and yes, nerve wracking too). It's a little too late for the pre-op diet - other than you shouldn't eat or drink 12 hours before your surgery. Post-op I am sure your doctor will provide you with a post-op diet; if not, the one that Dr Aceves uses is pretty good. Most importantly - walk, walk, walk and sip, sip, sip. Don't lift anything over 15 lbs. for 6 weeks. Oh yes, and post as soon as you feel up to it to share your story!

Oh congratulations! I am still waiting for my date, so i know how excited and anxious you must be feeling.

Just think, the new YOU begins tomorrow...you are so lucky. From what I've read on this forum, I'd say you need to get to the store and make sure you have some Crystal Lite, chicken broth, SF Jello, and SF popsicles.

Good luck tomorrow, and post as soon as you can to let us know how you're doing.:sad0:

Wow, another lucky girl! You know what just blows my mind? Is that there are sooooo many people getting this sleeve done! Imagine before I only knew about the RNY and lap band, since then I've learned so much about the sleeve. . . it's amazing! I never even knew the thing existed! . . .

I just got in from the doctors(my PCP ), and there was a new nurse there and she was discussing my weight loss and I told her I had the Verticle Sleeve done, and she had the band........ a few minutes later she commented that she had never heard of it, and what does it do? fit over the band??? I was about floored! But I just explained the procedure very simply.....

      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 .
