I start the pre-op liquid diet in a few weeks, i'm not looking forward to that. I'm concerned about how I'm going to stick to it! What are everyone's major concerns about the surgery? For me it's the nausea and being able to intake enough fluids - I'm hoping for the best but going into it knowing it could be pretty difficult those first few months.

I'm doing mine in Mexico, I'm concerned about several things. 1) no doctor follow ups, 2) self control, 3) being sick to whatever stomach I have left. I have acid reflux now and am on meds. I can hurl over anything; coughing, dry throat, brushing my teeth. Surgery/anesthesia makes me nauseous and 4) what if I have some undiagnosed underlying issue such as hypothyroidism and I still don't lose like I expect?

I hear you, there's so much to think about! All we can do is expect the best but be aware of what can arise so we aren't completely caught off guard if issues come up. I'm praying for everything to run smoothly! :)

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
