You will be fine NaiNai I have been on preop since Jan 10 and honestly since I chickened out of my surgery last Tuesday I have not cared about the preop diet. If I can just make it through the surgery then I will focus on diet instructions. I have lost 29 pounds when they never told me to lose any so at this point I dont really care. My anxiety over my upcoming surgery has taken over my life sadly. I am having to take Xanax everyday because of it.

Jenah, I've been living in "fear" since 4 days before surgery. I cried and stressed daily. It was AWFUL. I called to cancel the day before and then felt I had to let someone know how I felt so I went to the hospital. I tried "canceling" at each step of check-in. I'm sure the doctors and residents thought I was a mess. I cried and cried and just went through the motions. My fears have not ended. Now I fear complications! I know it's useless, as I'm beyond the point of no return but everything has been easier than I imagined even after terrible nausea and dry heaves! My dad kept saying, "do you even remember what you've put yourself through and why you are here? Stay focused on your goals and put it in God's hands." I'm doing well but still have fears... Be strong. You can always message me and you can cry and b***h and moan and ill TOTALLY understand. Sometimes I feel bad because I wonder what people on this site think of all my fears??? But I'm on the other side now and you will be too! :-)

Thanks very much slimjim your story has really helped me. I thought I was the only one acting irrationally about this but I am glad to see Im not. I have been stressing day and night its rediculous. It is bad Ive had to resort to taking Xanax daily just so I can get through the day. I tell you what though Xanax works cause when I take it I pretty much dont care about anything lol. I am just hoping to God its strong enough on the day of the surgery. I know that once I go to sleep its over from there. I will so relieved when I wake up in that hospital bed afterwards. As far as complications go I will cross that bridge when I get there. Thank You for sharing your story. I will continue to pray for me, you and all of us bought go into surgery.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
