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 had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.

      Well, I am still on schedule for a December 26th surgery, but no longer sleeve, but instead bypass. Here is a link to my latest YouTube video explaining why the change:

      Still stuck at a 50# weight-loss after three years. Starting to think the rest is never going to come off. I have decided to see a bariatric doctor, where I currently live, since I have moved away from the one that did my original surgery. Also starting to wonder what weight-loss percentage is considered a failure for this surgery. I don't want to be one of the unsuccessful stories, but I'm becoming very discouraged. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I lost the weight I did, but why won't the rest GO?!
