Well gang, I did all my grocery shopping today and have everything organized on my kitchen counter so I do not have to worry about grocery shopping when I get home from the hsopital. I see that some of you are doing a colon cleanse the day before your surgery. I have to do the same but I was told to use 2 fleet bottles the day before and not food or even Water from midnight on. Monday will be here soon. I am so scared and excited at the same time like the rest of you. Good luck to all the sleevers in the month of March.

Pammie so good to hear that your surgery is all over, I am so happy for you. It sounds like you are doing very well. Do the pain meds take away all the pain or does it just dull the pain? I have been told gas can get bad so that is why they want you up walking ASAP.

Good Job Pam you made it to the other side. Rest easy tonight. Cheryl

I'm experiencing something and I need to know if anyone else is experiencing the same thing. I'm on day 7 of the pre-op diet, and for the past 2 days I've had unbelievably bad breath. My wife could smell it from across the room. I can taste it in my mouth, and my tongue even feels weird, almost numb. Is this from going into ketosis from the diet? I've done the Atkins diet several times, and never had anything anywhere near this bad.

Yep sounds like ketosis. It will pass. I chewed mint gum constantly!

BDJ,

Have you been on antibiotics lately? I'm not a doctor , but im thinking it sounds like it might be your stomach. I had that problem a few years ago & it freaked me out. Doc said it was my stomach. I had been on antibiotics & my stomach just went bad. I never got it properly diagnosed & it did go away. Maybe your empty stomach is just churning away because it's used to more food. I remember brushing my tongue like crazy & chewing gum, but nothing made it go away except time. Mine might've lasted a month. The good news is that it DID go away. I hope yours gets better asap! Maybe take some prilosec & antacids...

Thanks for the suggestions, jilliemay, but I haven't been on any antibiotics in over a year. I'm already on prescription Prilosec, so I don't think it is that. It must be the ketosis. I'm down 9-10 lbs in 7 days on this diet. That's 9-10 less I'll need to lose after surgery.

Depressed...I SHOULD be on my pre-op diet..but my lovely insurance is giving my surgeon a hard time. I'm praying that I hear something soon, but really worried that they'll find some loophole to deny me. I've been doing really well with exercising and diet, up until the last few days....I need Closure! I'm also up for a new job and all of this uncertainty is making me climb the walls!

My surgery went good on mon. No big surprises pretty Much the stuff I expected from reading through the forum. My Two biggest issues were the cotton mouth' date=' it was really bad. I thought my mouth was gonna epoxy shut. Second was hiccups, they weren't regular hiccup but some sort of internal hiccup, they hurt, I've had them before but nothing like that. Was released tues evening from the hospital after I did all my walking and was able to sip 40oz over time and keep it down. Thx for the thoughts and prayers.[/quote']

Keep us posted on your recovery dustdog, will pray for a quick recovery.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
