With the holiday the day before, i was surprised when she told me it was the next open day! I was honestly thinking they would schedule me more towards the end of July! But I also was expecting it to take 2 weeks for insurance approval, not 2 days!!

July 5th is going to be the first day of our new lives!!

I know the woman I had was like "so the next available day isn't until.....July 5th" I was expecting mid-late August or something from the way she paused. So exciting!

Hehe I was expecting to get a date for mid to late June so July 5th was alright for me too! My insurance really dragged their feet otherwise I could have had an earlier date.

Can't wait for surgery day!! I've started stocking up on Protein Shakes and other approved stuff for the liquid pre-op/ 1st week of post op diets!

Well...I have a BMI of 40. That's my DRs threshold for surgery. So he said I only have to be on liquids for 24 hours prior to surgery. But I started yesterday trying to cut back.

I don't feel like I'm as prepared as I should be. Because of my BMI, I could not fall under 244# or my insurance would deny me and I would have had to start the entire process over again that I started in Dec. so I've had to continue with my bad eating just to maintain. Now I feel unprepared. I have 4 kids and I haven't practiced cooking the good stuff much so my whole house is diving head first into this process. I've failed for the last 15 years trying to loose so I'm just freaking out that I won't do good with this.

How's your preop??

Started my 2 wk preop liquid diet for my July 10 surgery.....I know what you feel like to be unprepared! My BMI is 37, and it has been for the last year. I haven't really lost any since I have made the decision to have the surgery last fall.

These next 2 weeks are going to be tough-5 day camping trip with the family...those Protein Shakes aren't exactly beer and smores-so, I am just dreading this. But I think about how bad I hate being fat. it consumes my every day and I hate myself for that.

I am sure that everyone here has similar feelings, but it doesn't make this much easier!

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!

      I have my surgery scheduled for 07/15/2021! I'm so excited! I began implementing the pre-op diet (essentially low carb) that my nutritionist gave me today! So far a pretty rough day- I didn't realize how much I graze throughout the day. But I'm excited to get these habits broken, and take control over my relationship with food!

      So far the LSD has not been bad. I have had no headaches and no complaints of hunger or cravings. Shake for breakfast, sugar-free jello for a snack, shake for lunch, another for snack, small dinner of protein and veggies and another shake for evening snack with 64 oz. of water throughout the day. I thought it was going to be hell but so far so good.
