Thank you!!

Im Jennifer! I am excited, scared and anxious all at the same time. I am an only mom of 3 children and scared to die. I have to be honest about that. BUT, I also need to do this to live for my kids.

My surgery is scheduled for 7 Am (6 AM check in at the hospital)

I am having Laparoscopic Roux-en Y. I know if I had a sleeve done I would not keep the weight off. I love cake and there is no dumping with the sleeve, so, I opted for bypass.

Jennifer you will do fine!!! You have to be positive about this especially for your kids. I feel all those emotions also except dying, I always look at things like this. If I were to live my life scared of dying than my life is already over. We are never promised tomorrow only the present so live it to it's fullest!! This is actually extending that life!!

I also have to be there for 6 AM, first surgery of the day.:D

I am nervous I won't lose weight like some people on here complain about. That's really my biggest worry.

I am also the first surgery of the day at my hospital. They are going to call this Friday to let me know the exact time.
My first day of pre-op shakes went well. I looked forward to chewing my Bariatric Fusion Vitamins at Breakfast and in the evening.

My hubby had to travel this week, so I do not have to make meals twice a day! My daughter picked out healthy meals for this week for herself. Our fridge is full of sf Jello, applesauce, chocolate shakes, and pudding. I'm so ready to do this!!

I can't wait to talk to you all from the other side! We are so close now [emoji1360]

I see my surgeon Wednesday and finish my last workshop after that. I find out Friday what time the surgery is on Monday. I turn 50 on Thursday so the surgery is my gift to myself.

[mention=315500]emirn1[/mention] congrats that's awesome. I'm dreading the liquid diet. I have huge project at work the week of my pre op. I hope I'm not too cranky. What shake did you use?

I'm using Unjury chocolate, it's not bad at all. I also got some Lean shakes from GNC but they don't taste as good. Post op I've got a variety of Isopure to get me thru the clear liquid stage!
It has def been rough at times, lots of sf Jello & popsicles have helped!
Good luck, I know you will do great.

@emirn1 I ordered injury unflavored to use post op. It wasn't on my list to use pre op but I'm going to inquire today can I use it during pre op.

Ok I'm looking online at the Isopure for the clear stage and have no clue which one to get or all of them can be added to Water. For example I see some liquid ones in bottles, and some in containers and bags that seem to be powders.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 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!!

      2. SleeverSk

        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 .
