Knock, Knock!!! Who's there? Me!!!

I'm back!!!! Everyone I have been so out of whack not being able to get on here and get motivation. As soon as I returned from a visit home (3 hrs) away, my job sent me out of town. This has been a stressful 5 days.

So how's everyone doing? I missed chatting with yall.

I am having trouble eating and drinking. I feel full and bloated so it hurts even to drink. I have not ate since Breakfast. Dr wants me on clear liquids until he sees me so he can figure out what's going on. I see him tomorrow morning. My sugar is already dropping from not eating or drinking.

@@kwcrnp, Eating is a little challenge for me. I'm sticking to my diet but it doesn't stop my brain from wanting the foods that got me here in the first place. Barely hungry in my stomach but in my mind I'm starving. I called my nutritionist to vent and she was very understanding by explaining that once my weight start coming off this will all be worth it and to continue to stay focus.

My surgery is tomorrow

Can anyone that has done it tell me

How bad is it... Am so nerves

i had my surgery on april 2nd, i was not in too much pain after. i think it was just the soreness but they give you pain meds. take the pain meds to avoid needing them asap and then taking an hour for them to kick in. I had alot of ice chips which helped.

good luck

It is different from each doctor of how long you have to do the liquid diet before surgery. I wish I knew why each doctor seeing things different. I went for my preregistration today April 16. Surgery is one week away on April 23 and I have been doing liquids one week and lost 15 pounds. I am now 259 pounds. I am getting excited but so nervous.

What should I pack for the hospital? My doctor said I will be in the hospital for 4-5 days. Is that right? Is just preparing me for worst case scenario?

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
