Hello All, I am new to this site as it was suggested by the lady that processed my insurance paperwork at the hospital. My surgery date is April 16th and I am a little nervous and a little excited. It seems like it took forever and yet no time at all to get here!

Well, I was just scheduled for my surgery. April 16. Holy crap. Is there anyone out there heading for this surgery that is only 85% sure of actually wanting it? My surgeon does no pre-op diet either. Anyone else in that boat?

My surgery date is April 20th God willing and I go for pre op testing April 16th and start my liquid diet April 10th.

I kind of feel like it isn't real. I have been thinking about getting the sleeve for about a year, I went in December for my consult and finished everything March 18th.

Hey! I'm also scheduled for April 20th and my pre op is the 16th. It's coming up soon! Can't believe we are almost beginning this process! Good luck to you! Stay in touch if you can!

I had my surgery on Monday. Went into the OR at 7:50 am and the dr talked to my folks at 8:25am saying surgery was over and I did great. I was in recovery til 10, then walked around the corner to a recliner where I sat and took walks from until noon. They dismissed me at noon. I have the normal aches and pains associated with surgery but nothing major. I fall asleep at a moments notice and wake up as quickly. I walked to the end of the block and back this morning. Got 40 g Protein in today. Sip slowly but constantly. Don't over do it. Enjoy your new life!

      😫 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 .
