Less Than 48Hrs Till Sleeve



Recommended Posts

Well hello! I am getting so excited and nervous about my vsg on Monday!! Any words of advice, what your surgical experience was like, or encouraging support welcome. Looking forward to meeting some nice friends on here. BTW, who are they kidding with this pre-surgical Fluid diet?!? If I could just do this, I wouldn't need the surgery! Already missing food...

I'm day 5 post op and it has been harder than I'd anticipated. Just stay positive and know that in the end you won't regret this.

My sleeve was done last month. The surgery was not too bad. There will be some discomfort but you will have pain meds to combat it. You can also given IV meds for nausea if you experience it. You will be feeling better in just a few days. I actually went back to work exactly one week after my surgery. I wish you the best of luck! Don't worry...you'll do fine and, trust me, you will loose weight!

Good Luck!!

I agree that the pre-op diet just sucks!! It makes me think about food more than I should. I keep thinking I'm never going to eat again!! (I'm on my 5th day)

Anyhooooo-Monday is almost here & I wish you the best!

Just remember to follow your Drs instructions about post op "eating" it's important to your healing and recovery. It may seem like it'll take forever, but you will get to eat real food again. It's worth the wait

      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 .
