I'm having my vsg done April 16th. I have started stocking up on Premier Protein drinks, and Isopure unflavored to add to anything. Also the clear liquid premier drinks but they're very very sweet! So may need to Water those down. 😬 I'm also looking for further suggestions. Good luck to everyone! ❤

Hey guys! I’m having surgery in two weeks!! Looking for anyone have surgery in April that would want to maybe chat and keep in touch or share suggestions. I have my pre op and post op diets but would love to know what kind of recipes you all are planning to try or what Protein supplements everyone is planning to have. Also anyone have to drink Gatorade right before surgery? I thought that was wierd.

anyone know what Vitamins we should have after surgery?? I’ve been waiting to hear back from my nutritionist because I don’t meet with her till after surgery but I want to know ahead of time so I can start buying some.

thanks!

Also for the Vitamins, I've been using the vitamin patches by patched. Much easier and seem to work great!

Iam scheduled for April 3. Getting nervous.
I found some great youtube videos that tell you what supplements to take. You should check that out. I ordered gummies and Patches for the first few weeks. Lets stay in touch so that we can go through this together, ok?

Hi @brookeville777! Isn’t it such a crazy feeling! When do you start your pre op diet? I totally get how you feel my BMI is 59. But you just have to remember that the people who perform these surgery’s do it all week long all year and have very low rates of complications overall. The benefits outweigh the risks in my opinion. I’m sure I will be scared getting closer

Thank you so much. That's very comforting. My surgery is in 2 weeks from today so I am on it as of now.

I thought those Patches might be a scam but everyone is raving about them! I will definitely have to try them out! Your surgery is the day before mine! Ahhh yes please let’s keep in touch! I have Instagram if you wanna follow each other. I’m totally going to check out those YouTube videos today!

Yesss! Bariatric pal makes a Protein Meal Replacement and it’s Soup instead of a shake and I think it would be nice to have that as a savory alternative. They have pretty good reviews too but I think there are other brands that make them too.

I’m scheduled for April 5th in Mexico. I started my pre-op diet yesterday to allow for two full weeks on the diet and then two days for the liquid diet. Good luck to all and I hope we stay in touch as we all go through this amazing journey!

I’m waiting for my date, so at this point I’m guessing April not March.

      Happy Friday!
      Went to the surgeon this week for my 9 month follow up, a little early. I haven't seen him at my other follow ups (always a PA), besides the one time he called afterwards, but this time he stopped in and made a point to congratulate me. He said I'm doing amazing and to keep up the good work. I've shaved 25 points off my BMI, and down 142lbs at 8 months post op.
      I'm starting to really feel normal, not like a bariatric patient. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing. While I still have good habits, I don't think its  "hard work" anymore. I feel that I have truly changed my lifestyle. My new normal feels really good!
      Hope everyone is doing well.
      Much love,
      Ash

        Congratulations Ash!! That is amazing. I am so happy for you. woot woot :450_trophy:

      2. GreenTealael

        Congrats! I too feel *normal*

        It may be a good thing, I never wanted to struggle at this, and the most successful VETs don't appear to be struggling either...

      3. FluffyChix

        I'm so happy for you!! Congrats Ash on your HUGE accomplishment girlie!!! I'm so thrilled you've learned new ways!!! So glad you feel normal! You are so beautiful!!!

        And I completely agree with Tea, the most successful VETs don't appear to struggle. They just seem to have settled into their lifestyle and live it, day in, day out.

        I also wanna be that girl. :)

        Muah!

      Saw the surgeon yesterday. He is very pleased with my loss thus far. I am averaging about 10 lbs a month. Turns out my nutritionist and my surgeon have vastly differing ideas on how many calories I should be eating right now. Nut put me on 1K a day. Surgeon said nope, they are wrong, go to 800/day. Too bad I have been following what the Nut advised. I could have lost more weight already. Oh well, I will do it now! I am also going to add another day of working out to help break this stall I have been in since 8/28. I am very happy as this week I was able to get into a size XL shirt and I am wavering on pants sizes, but I am wearing a lot of size 18 that are too big or are getting too big. The inches are still dropping off nicely. I saw my parents for the first time after a long time this past weekend (they live out of state) and my Dad who never says anything gave me some super nice compliments. My sister also did...her words as we were trekking through the airport on a long upward ramp were along the lines of "Before the mind was willing but the body wasn't. Now your mind and body are in sync. Before we would have had to have stopped at least once and now you aren't even phased by this." What a great thing to have someone recognize.

        I was there yesterday too! My appointment was at 1:30pm. And its crazy that they told you 800 calories per day, when they told me 1k yesterday, but I've got my own agenda lol.

      2. SleeveinIL

        Were you up here??? I am sorry I missed you. My appointment was at 1:15 so it seems we may have just missed each other!!! When do you see him for the 9 month? Maybe we could meet up and say hi!

      3. AshAsh1

        Oh my gosh, that's a gag... we literally just missed each other! It was technically my 9 month appointment, even though I'm only 8 months post op. I missed my 6 month, so I went a month early to my 9 month. I probably won't be back up until my year appointment, but if I come sooner, I'll be sure to let you know!
