Recommended Posts

I got approved by my insurance today. Started my liquid diet and my surgery will be on May 19th. OMG what a day. I feel like I am dreaming. How hard sill the next two weeks of nothing but liquids be?

I am just about to blow up I have so many emotions run inside of me right now. Wow two more weeks and I will be sleeved. My new life will start.

The anticipation is the tough part :confused: I am sure going to liquids will be a tough change, but use your motivation and excitement for this process to help keep you on track. I did not have a pre-op, but I have done liquid diets in the past. Once you get past day 3 everything is smoother. Also enjoy the rapid weight loss the liquid diet will bring and just remember this time you won't be gaining it back! Stay positive and realize how this will get you to your goal. If you do struggle use your support systems to help get you back on track.

Your gonna rock the sleeve.

Many congrats on getting your date set. The sleeve is absolutely fabulous. I can't help you with the liquid pre-op because I just had to do low carb. You'll do great, and come here when you need support.

Congratulations! I am sharing in your excitement and anticipation as my surgery date is also May 19th. We can be sleeve buddies, and keep each other motivated as we each move along post-op, if you would like. I did my final pre-op appointment today with my surgeon and everything appears to be right on track to surgery day. Good luck on your 2 weeks liquid pre-op diet, it will be tough but you can do it. Just stay with it.

I am having my sleeve on the 19th too! I was suppose to have it done on the 20th but got moved up one day due to the hospital schedule. YAY! I'm so excited for you. I don't have to do the liquid diet but a low-carb diet. Looks like me, you and springlife are all on for the 19th!:thumbup:

      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!!

        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 .
