Scheduled for July 2.



Recommended Posts

Hello all!! I'm new to this blog, but happy to have found it! I'm 36 years old and roughly 100 lbs overweight. I have been approved by insurance and am scheduled for July 2. I am pretty nervous and excited at the same time. I work in surgery so maybe I know too much about that! Lol.... But, it's the recovery time that scares me a little. I'm pretty tough and a hard worker, so I plan on doing just fine. Look forward to talking to you guys. Did anyone out there go back to work after just 1 week?? That's what I'm hoping for. Any advice appreciated for either pre-op or post- op time.

Hey Beth! Welcome!! I'm scheduled for surgery next Tuesday. If all goes well I plan on going back to work on Monday. My surgeon said that it just depends on how I feel. We'll see what happens. Good luck : )

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
