Surgery is tomorrow morning sometime. I'm here in Juarez at Star Medica through BeLiteWeight. I'm happy with everything so far and believe me, I'm picky. I can't find anything to complain about. I am getting nervous even though I know tomorrow will be a new beginning. It's so scary thinking about the unknown and the feeling you are giving your life to someone else to handle.

So glad to hear you made it and are doing ok. A little tip- I started being forgetful about taking the Prilosec and I've been really hungry lately. I just read that it's actually stomach acid causing the hunger, so remember to take your Prilosec (omeprazole)!

Hope all is well!

Hope it went well! Thinking of you...

PS. I am pretty much exactly the same height and weight as you! It will be interesting to see how we progress. And I had my surgery April 24.

Hope you are recovering well. The first 3 days are the worst!

I made it! I'm feeling pretty good. Just a little bit of pain. Looking forward to feeling normal again. :-)

I had my Gastric Sleeve surgery this past Wednesday and got home yesterday afternoon. 3 days post op. in addition to the sleeve, they found a hiatal hernia which had to be repaired. I was up and walking 3 hours after my procedure. I am so sore from the gas and multiple bags of iv fluids, but so happy to be home. I have a drain tube which will be removed next Friday. I have done well on the initial liquid diet, but since starting the stage 2 diet, it feels like the food and the gas are in competition with each other for space, and I am taking small sips during drink time, and small bites during food time. Has anyone else experienced this? Eventually I am able to burp it out, but it is such a weird feeling! Is that normal? Hope everyone is well today :)

Yep the the gas and liquid fighting for space. I do not mean to be rude but when you start tooting again it is amazing. Cold liquids are hard for me than warm but that is common. I also had surgery on Wednesday and still fighting gas but it is getting better.

I had surgery on Monday and am on a full liquid diet for 2 weeks post op. But yes my gas feels like it's constantly battling against liquids and when I drink it makes a gurgling sound [emoji20]

Yes!!! I got sleeved on Wednesday and my stomach hasn't stopped gurgling since! Such a strange sensation, I swear it's loud enough for people around me to hear.

Hey guys! Just updating, officially one week post op today! Been doing okay with getting in my liquids, been able to get only get in 20oz although i am sickkkk and tired of Water and crystal light. Been only able to get in about 4 ounces of Premier Protein in per day. I am craving seltzer water SOOOO BAD! It was my favorite thing to drink before surgery I miss it so much, I even dreamt about it last night [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

I have been struggling to drink my Vitamins. I gag so bad when it's time to take them. I have my first pre op apt tomorrow and will be moving into puréed foods.

What sugar free drinks are you guys drinking? And what are some ideas for puréed foods?!

Hope everyone's coming along!
And good luck to everyone waiting for their big day.

Congrats!! I was sleeved on the 13th of April. I was just like you. There was some days I felt so weak from not being able to get enough calories in. But don't worry it will get better. I hated my vitamins as well but I am now finally able to stomach them. My dr told me at 2 week follow up that I wasn't suppose to start them until after my 2 week follow up. I see why now. Lol

If you're tired of water try some zero Vitamin water. My personal favorite is the orange flavor. I love it even more when it's cold. I'm able to drink cold stuff now. It doesn't bother me like it did 1 week ago.

Good luck at your follow up tomorrow. We didn't do purée. My dr goes straight to soft foods at 2 week follow up. My issue right now is making sure I moisten my food with dressing or sour cream to help it go down easier.

Happy for you!! Glad you're doing ok. It will get better. Much love!!

      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
