November surgeries?



Recommended Posts

Congrats Linds' date=' what an awesome gift to yourself! Wishing you much success on your WL journey! Hey Madds, this is my 5th day of pre-op liquid diet...it does get better like others on here have said. I only get broths, sugar free Jello & Popsicles and of course Protein Shakes can be made with 1% milk 5-6 a day. They say to drink the first shake 30-60 minutes of waking up. I cannot add any fruit or have any caffeine. I know this is for the liver shrink so I am sticking to it, I just want everything to go smoothly. Lol! As we all do. Best of luck to you both. Yea! We are already in the month of our surgery! ❤11-11-13❤[/quote']

Do you have all your Vitamins too?

Saw the surgeon and pre-op nurse today. 11/19 is my surgery date. Was told that I have a large hiatal hernia. He is going to repair that at the same time as my bypass. Said it would add about an hour to the surgery. Think I am lucky because some Drs want that done as separate operation. I will be doing my own pre-op diet starting a week before surgery. I have lost weight and he is happy with my results. In the meantime, using My Fitness Pal, substituting one meal with Protein Shake and being very careful of diet. If I follow the guidelines now, it will make it easier later.

Thanks for the well wishes and congrats everyone. I woke up today and it was the first time I realized I have a date and am just waiting for surgery day! What an odd feeling!

I have heard Chapstick too for the hospital bag. Loose clothes, socks, maybe a laptop if you can get to the internet?

I have a question for all of you actually...I am starting to get stuff on my shopping list regarding Vitamins, Protein powders, etc. I'm having a difficult time finding a Calcium supplement that meets the surgeons requirements. It needs to preferably be a citrate not carbonate. Liquid or chewable, without any sugary stuff in it. What have you guys found out there? I am on a Flintstones Iron Chewable and will start Natures Valley B-12. Each time I look at these vitamins and powders, I get really overwhelmed. Anybody wanna share??

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
