December 2017 Gastric Bypass!



Recommended Posts

So I have a (likely) surgery date of December 13th, pending insurance approval. Any other people having a gastric bypass in December and want to be buddies? I hope we can keep this thread going as we prepare for surgery, and after!

@823freckles My tentative date is Dec 13 also! Totally dependent on when BCBS gives the official approval. I'll be your buddy, but I'm an old lady next to you....57 years old! Are you as nervous as me about getting through the surgery and that first month?

I'm scheduled for a revision from lap band to gastric bypass on Dec. 12th. Would love to stay connected, but I'm also new on here and need to know how to go about staying connected.

I'm 63, and wishing I would have had bypass when I paid $17,000. Out of pocket for my lapband. Will be relieved when surgery is over. I just had a hysterectomy last year, so I'm hoping recovery is as easy as that was.

Yay! So nice to see some fellow December gastric bypass people! I am excited but really, really nervous. I also have a pretty extreme pre-op diet from my surgeon-based on my BMI, I have 4 weeks of Protein Shakes and raw vegetables! So I start that Tuesday.

I am new here too, but it looks like there's like a "follow thread" button at the top. I think if you post on the thread, you have automatically "followed" it as well, and will be notified of new posts. Hope that helps!

I'm really excited to share that I got approved! Yay!

I'm also on day 4 of my pre-op diet (protein shakes and raw vegetables). It's been pretty rough. I feel like my emotions are literally all over the place-which scares me.

How is everyone else handling any emotional struggles around the prep?

@823freckles I haven't started the Pre Op diet....I don't even know what mine will be or how soon prior to surgery I do that. I don't see the doctor or dietician again until Dec 6 and my RNY surgery is Dec 27. What date is your surgery?

My emotions go from scared to death....to so excited that I'm getting this incredible opportunity to save my life and maybe not suffer the constant shame of out of control eating and being the fat girl in the room....to being just normal....to be able to walk with not horrible knee pain again....to not be out of breath walking up one flight of stairs....yep, I'm all over the place.

Biggest fear....am I strong enough physically to survive the surgery and the recovery phase?

      Had my gastric sleeve surgury on 12/28. I have lost about 15 pounds since surgery but have hit a stall. It is soooo frustrating! Any advice is greatly appreciated

        Just be patient. It sounds like a pat answer, but it is literally the only thing you can do to crush the dreaded 3 week stall!

      2. MissSimpson

        We have the same surgery day and the same problem. I’ve lost about 20, then stopped. I’m hardly eating anything, logging everything, getting my water and proteins. I don’t know what’s wrong. It’s so frustrating.

      I'm doing so well on the new plant-based way of eating! It's been 1 month since my final diet visit, where I found out I had gained about four pounds since my previous visit in November. That meant I had only lost 3 pounds overall from March-December 2017. Ugh, sad trombone. However, in the last 3 weeks of eating a plant-based diet I've lost 13 pounds from my December visit weight! And that includes Christmas and a vacation! So definitely not a "perfect" month by any means. I'm really hoping this way of eating will support my goal of reaching and maintaining 100% of excess weight lost.

        Hey whatever works! I've had a few friends go plant-based and drop a lot of weight naturally.
