February Surgery Buddies!

Recommended Posts

Who wants to be surgery buddies? My surgery is Feb 20th! [emoji4]

Officially post op RNY gastric bypass 2/7/18. All of you will do great. I start my purée diet on Wednesday 2/14 and I am looking forward to it. Been on liquids since February 4th. I could not imagine people that do liquid diets weeks in advance or a month prior. Good luck to all. For me, I still have gas post surgery despite walking. So be prepared for a lot of gas although I hope you all get lucky with no gas pain !!!! Lol....... as of now, my only struggle is getting all my Protein and liquid in :(, but I am working hard on it. I refuse to get on the scale until I see my doctor on Thursday, but below are STATs as of surgery date.

Ht: 5’6”
HW- 298lbs
SW- 260lbs

JazmaniaRNY you've been one of my favorite poster & I'm happy to hear you're doing pretty well post surgery. Now you've joined the veterans rank and can be a trail guide for all those who haven't had surgery yet. I'll be watching for updates.

Hi everyone! I had my revision from sleeve to mini bypass on the 7th, discharged on the 9th, back at work on the 10th. No gas pains (I did walk a lot!) No pain killers either. Really happy with my progress, was nervous on my surgery eve but that feels like a distant memory now. Good luck everyone :)

I didnt have to do a pre-op liquid diet. I was expecting it after hearing about it, but my surgeon doesnt do it. At least you have a boost start on the weight loss though!!

I’m down 15lbs on this preop diet. Monday can’t get here soon enough! I’m so excited & nervous.

Happy Wednesday to all..... although we can’t have chocolates, Cookies, heart shaped cakes, cupcakes, or whatever we want on Valentine’s Day we are gaining health....... I do wish everyone the best. Started purée diet today and has been good. I had an egg in the morning.... went down well but it took forever to eat, I indulged earlier with one tbsp of creamy Peanut Butter and called it lunch haha :), idk if I will do dinner because I need to bump up my Protein intake so I have been sipping on protein Water. This is a real adjustment! I made marinara rotini and turkey meatballs for my kiddo (his fav) and husband. Omg! Smelled delightful, but I didn’t break. I hope everyone is having and continues to have a good day!!!! :)

By the way..... the clear Protein Drink Premier Protein is so delicious. I slip it half and half with a water bottle. Taste great and gets me 10 grams of protein per bottle. If you can handle the sweetness, then don’t water it down and drink as is for 20 grams of protein per bottle.

      😫 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!!

        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 .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
