@@Desmond Longbottom Please don't let anyone bring you down and you didn't come this far to turn back now! YOU will be GREAT! You are almost there! And I don't care if your surgery is in October, YOU will always be a September Sleever! ;) The stabbing is only the beginning all the fun starts Post-Op. ;)

Firstly thank you so so much for all the messages of support yesterday after my little heart to heart. It was much appreciated!

But there is now some news and it is def a bit of a turn around. Seeing as my surgery is taking place in a public not private hospital they have to take emergencies etc... as priority (completely understandable). This has however, left me without a bed so my surgery has been canceled/postponed. Right now i have no idea when i shall have my operation. Not a big deal. Waited this long so i can wait a bit more.

For now though he sun is shining and in Ireland this is not to be wasted. You'll catch me at the beach. Heres to being off the hook for now.

Des x

Ps. (Def pushing the theoretical limit of what being a September sleever means at this point.)

Checking in with my co-surgery September Sleevers! How is everyone feeling? I'm doing great thus far.

No complications, except I was dehydrated past two days. I am really trying to remember to drink my fluids. I'm back to work and get so busy, I forget, Can you say MIGRAINE! I am focused to get them in today. I noticed hot tea goes down so much better

Good afternoon all.

So my surgeon got in touch today to apologise for the cancellation. The chances of surgery any time soon are remote. Still on liver shrinking in case things change, but not holding my breath!

May end up being a november sleever at this point.

It's still gonna happen though so just a matter of waiting

Lotsa love

Des

I made it to the looser bench! My surgery was Sept 30 and I am doing pretty well.

I didn't have any issues with pain or gas, and have not used my pain meds. I am struggling with nausea and that is really working against my liquid goals.

I am in good spirits and pressing on.

I am only able to get down about 24 Oz of fluids on day 1 and trying to bet that today.

How much could you guys get down by day 2 post-op?

Great that you are doing well mykdzmom. I was on iv first 3 days so didn't drink more than 20 ounces at most during that time. I am now 8 days post op and do drink 50 to 60 each day. I return to work on Monday so will have to work very hard to ensure I continue with that.

@ and ANewMe9/21 Thanks for the feedback. I am going for 3 Oz of Clear Liquids an hour today. I just can tolerate the Protein yet, and assume if nothing else I need to get the fluids down. Glad you both are well. :)

Great news ANewMe9/21! Hope it goes very well! I am down a total of 22 pounds. 14 pre op and 8 since surgery. I gained 14 pounds from 3 days of iv, so that took about 4 days to lose.

Congrats on your loss! I lost 8 lbs on my liquid pre-op diet and gained them back with the IV as well.

I just started mushy phase yesterday too! NUT said that I could eat anything that was mushy (or pretend I didn't have any teeth, and that is what consistency I can handle). I ate fish and mashed potatoes. So far so good!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
