my surgery date is set! Thursday March 19th (he likes to see you on Friday before they discharge you so he doesnt do Friday surgeries).

anyone else around that time...? would love some company/online friends!

It's really not that bad, I have been on it since Friday. I like the Premier Protein chocolate and strawberry the best. Good luck and remember just how good your going feel in the long run.

Patient of Dr. Sommers @ Hudson Valley Hospital. This is week one of post op for me. So far so good, sore throat from incubation is the most uncomfortable element. Belly button pain is minimal. Really enjoy reading about everyone's journey. YouTube videos and forums have been such a great tool!

First doc appt yesterday, all is well. Down 15lbs since start of liquids. Got the ok for purée. Now having my first scrambled egg. So comforting to have a warm solid! Took me 15 minutes to eat it. Hope everyone is feeling well!

Great news! I don't follow up with mine till 2 weeks post-op and with Good Friday, my appointment got pushed till after Easter. Based on my home scale, I'm guessing I've lost about 10-13lbs. I've been able to have full liquids (including blended cream soups) but still have another WEEK (10 days) of this before I can move on to purees... blech. BUT those taste better than Protein Shakes which I need to focus more on.

how's everyone doing? Had my 1st follow-up appt (2 weeks, 4 days) and down 19lbs since pre-op appt.! YIPPEE! I dont go back till the 3 month mark... he said he'd like to see another 20-25lb loss by then. I start purees today and then in 2 weeks can move to soft foods (baked fish, etc.) Not sure I'm getting in quite 60g Protein he suggested to minimize hair loss but I know I'm getting over 40g per day and ALL my liquid (iced tea has been my fave!)
hope everyone is feeling great and loving being on the LOSERS bench :)

      😫 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 .
