Hi Tiffy, I'm a self pay and they are requiring that I have an upper GI. Do you think I should get one?

Just asking your opinion because you sound very knowledgeable about all of this. Thx, Sheryl

Hi Bigga, welcome to the boards. I have family and friends that live in Abbeville and the surrounding areas. Congratulations on moving forward with surgery. From my point of view it's the best thing I have ever done for myself. I spent over 30 years dieting and losing only to gain it back plus more. This is a great gift and I can tell by your attitude that you will work it and do well. Best wishes to you and keep us posted!

      😫 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 .
