Things that I'll be taking to hospital



Recommended Posts

Where's the tequila and limes ?????

Just kidding.

I wasn't allowed to wear anything but their no-slip socks as far as footwear was concerned.

Most important things I took:

Pillow for ride home.....hold against abdomen and relax.

Post op pain med prescription filled for the ride home.

iPhone loaded with an iBook, iTunes and my earbuds.

Anker remote battery for easy recharges and no need to reach for a wall outlet...able to keep everything on my rolling table.

Gas-X strips were taken but never used.

Geez, why don't tell her to bring diet coke and straws? ;-) Oh and pizza coupons.

LONG cords for your chargers were helpful by the way. Slip on shoes were great.

Everyone was only simply trying to help. Your profile picture says "There is power in positivity" there certainly is but it begins within first. I pray that you have a great journey & realize that we are all here to be system of support & to learn through each stage.

No one was trying to attack you in anyway but for some reason you seem really sensitive, I was pretty grouchy on the pre-op diet as well so I get it. We can all learn & grow from each other.

With much love & peace to you on your journey... Good luck!

@@Dub Great post at 4:31.

I wish I knew what hospital; I'd call the OR, nurses stations and admins to alert them: Buckle up and hold on! Dang.

PS [7:35 PM]: After reading the OP's response to me [5:55 or so] and others, I will now add to the above...an English/spelling book; a book about proper syntax; and most importantly, a STAT psych evaluation immediately upon the patient's arrival.

The non-medical person in me is cracking up: are we being punked? (Didn't Alex just post something about this approach?) But the physician/surgeon in me says serious "psychochopathology," maybe borderline personality/emotion dysregulation? And we don't even have to be a medical person to consider that.

Y'all have fun here.

You know I wasn't going to say anything else but you are being absolutely ridiculous!

My dear if you keep running into drama on the forums, you ever stop to think hmmmm....maybe it's you. No one was being rude or manipulative as you said but simply offering assistance and telling you their experience. I'm sooooo glad you have the support you need and I also pray that you aren't so harsh with them. I also tend to believe those that are sooooooo happy with their lives don't feel the need to have to say it constantly. While I hope you are truly happy, I doubt it..

In the words on the late great Michael Jackson (because I know I shouldn't even respond to this)..I'm starting with the man in mirror, I'm asking him to change his ways and I urge you to do the same.

The best of luck to you on your journey..

I will now return to my joyless life.

Peace, love and happiness.

I am dying here. D'Sleeved may need to change her forum name if she ever wants to post again! LOL Did anyone pay attention to how many likes the POSITIVE comments got? I too brought all those things and never used any of them. In fact, I have a brand new box of Biotene still unopened. I preferred crunching ice chips to wet my mouth.

      Hate thinking about foods I used to love... Burgers & wings. Gotta stay focused. 😤

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
