Any April Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I am brand new to the forum and I am having a gastric sleeve surgery TOMORROW! I am feeling good about getting the surgery over with but a touch apprehensive about how difficult "eating" is going to be afterwards......also my surgeon is not sending me home with any pain meds .....ZERO I will be spending 2 days in the hospital but after that he says tylenol is all I'm allowed because he wants me to feel if anything is going wrong and he says pain meds could tempt me to eat things I shouldn't while healing.....any words of advice or encouragement would be great :)

I'm scheduled April 3rd, I haven't started pre-op diet yet. I feel like I want to have that last hoorah of foods I will no longer have.

That's how I feel. I can't help it.

Well I found out today my surgery date is now 1 April instead of the 3rd. Even knowing this, I'm having problem wrapping my head about it.

Hi ChrysChry89

You can do it!! Stay focused and keep the end goal in mind. When I feel hungry I'll read success stories or look at before and after pictures for motivation.

My doctor has me on a one week diet consisting of 2 Protein shakes and 1 sensible meal with SF Jello, SF pudding or SF Popsicles as a snack. Today is my 6th day into the diet. It's rough at times. It seems that everywhere I look I see pictures of food or advertisements of food.< /p>

One week from today on Monday April 6th is when I go on a 48 hour all liquid diet before surgery.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
