IT'S TIME! Getting sleeved in the morning!!!



Recommended Posts

Arrived in Mexicali today, completed all my tests at the hospital, met Yolanda & Dr Campos, had my "last" meal tonight at the hotel & am now in my room relaxing with my hubby! Thought I'd be a lot more nervous, but instead am calm, cool & happy with my decision! I met two other very nice people who will be having surgery tomorrow as well & think we will create a good support system for one another in the hospital!

Looking forward to life on the other side!!!

That's awesome Kai - congratulations - and it will be so great to have others on the wing with you - helps to make the days pass quicker if you can get up and visit or have someone to go walking with. Keep us posted on how you're doing when you feel up to it.

(Try not to get the last room on the right - the internet reception isn't all that good)

Thanks all! I'm still in my hospital room waiting my turn in the OR! Had a rough night last night, as I got a Migraine & was vomiting all night up until a couple hours ago when I was given something. Feeling great now though & hoping it continues after surgery!

I will try to post later today to update you all. Thanks again for all the kind words.

Vegas - I got the room opposite the far right & have GREAT internet! lol

Well it's a done deal! Surgery went very well apparently & I am in little pain, mainly discomfort on my drain side. I was out of bed as soon as I got out of recovery & have been doing circles in the hallway in a rotation... walk, sit, walk, lay, walk etc. So, so far so good for me. I understand day 2 is the worst, but I won't focus on that I'll just focus on continueing my progress from tonight. I got this far, I can get through it all (I hope!).

      My name is Jose and I am from the UK, I had a gastric bypass a month ago so I am at the beginning of my weight loss journey.
      I would like to know how many calories I should be eating a day to stay healthy, thank you for your time

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
