I am still a go for Wed the 18th! About the gas, my niece Joyce had the surgery last year and sang the praises of Gas-X strips. She said they are a life saver after the surgery. I have 2 boxes ready for after. Perhaps this will help you with your gas too.

My birthday is the 18th, that was one of the date choices I had for surgery, but I just couldnt wait another 8 days lol. Im 4 days out, down 12 more pounds, although I dont really feel any different lol. Just drinking drinking drinking! Need ot get a different Calcium chew though, cause the caramel ones i got are wayyyy to sweet and candy-like! Yuk! My hubby made toast and I really wanted a bite lol - no no no! My clear post diet is 4 weeks, omg its going to seem like forever lol. Gas is still a pain, and one of the laproscopic entry points is still damn sore! Move SLOWLY! walking is my best friend lol.

I couldn't handle being on clears for longer than a week. I'm 4 days out and STARVING. I probably haven't eaten more than 300 calories since the night before my surgery. I can't tolerate any of the clear Protein Drinks, and can only tolerate a little chicken broth. Other than that I've just been eating popsicles and drinking Crystal Light and Gatorade.

I don't have a surgery date yet but I had my pre op appointment July 12. I'm waiting for the scheduling lady to call me as soon as they have received my results of my sleep study which I did July 10, and my chest X-ray and EKG that I did July 12. My Dr does not require a pre op diet thank GOD! ;-) So I'm excited and just want to be sleeved already!!! My question to everyone is how much time are you taking off from work to have surgery???

      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 .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
