Hey everyone. I'm new to the board and just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Katie, I'm 29 years old and from Knoxville, TN. Right now I'm still in the process of jumping through hoops for my insurance approval, but I'm hoping to be sleeved in June or July! I'm nervous, but mostly excited. I look forward to getting to know some people who are going through this journey too. :)

Hi! Thanks for responding. It's nice to see someone from the same area on here. I'm going to Dr. Ray at Blount Memorial in Alcoa. I almost went to Boyce, but after I went to both seminars I just felt like Dr. Ray was a better fit for me. I liked him instantly. I do know several people that went to Dr. Boyce though and had great experiences. Congrats on getting a surgery date! I'm hoping mine is around that same time. If you need someone to talk to, I'm here! :)

      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.

      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 .
