Approved for surgery!



Recommended Posts

During lunch time today, I got a call from the patient coordinator/patient navigator at my surgeons office saying I was approved for surgery! My surgery is scheduled to take place on February 22nd, 2018 at 7:30 am and I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 am. I don't start the liquid diet until a week before the surgery. However, I have to eat smaller, healthier meals for two weeks before I start the actual liquid diet. I started the eating the smaller, healthier meals on February 1st; so, I have another week of eating the smaller, healthier meals before I start the actual liquid diet.

Yay! Good luck. I’ve been approved but am waiting to be scheduled [emoji4]






They did the opposite for me. They scheduled me first and then I had to wait to be approved.

Me, too! I thought I was the only one! I was scheduled in November. I think this may be a sign of a well=prepared office.

      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.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 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 .
