My surgery is on April 16th (less than one week). I had my pre-op appointment today. I am really excited. THe nervousness has subsided for now, I am in the mode of "let's get this over with" but I am sure this weekedn the nervousness will return.
Good luck to everyone!

My bypass surgery is 4-16 as well!

I’m 10 days away from surgery and feeling remarkably relaxed. Actually feeling empowered to finally be nearly on the road to a new and healthier future. The 2 week pre op is making me feel in control. I’m feeling excited at the moment.

I’m not anxious. I’m feeling energized and excited. I’m super motivated and can’t wait for my better life to begin. No worries at all.

My VSG is on Monday. I feel like the pre-op diet must be the hardest part. I have three weeks of liquids after my surgery, one week clear and two weeks full, but my understanding is I won’t be as hungry. I hope that is true!! Goodness...

I am absolutely excited it's almost here! The past 15 days have been hard with this diet but I did it and didn't cheat AT ALL! I'm also nervous but that's too be expected. I have everything done so today I just waitfor a phone call for my surgery time!

Hi again! I did it! Woop! MGB performed on the 17th, out on the 19th, home and recuperating well.

Having been banded up until a few years ago, I’m already pleasantly surprised by the differences I feel. There has been less pain which is a surprise.

I’m struggling a bit to get the required amount of Fluid in but feeling awesome despite this. Roll on the rest of my life :)

How is everyone else doing?

Congratulations! I'm glad yout feeling good!

I had my bypass on the 19th and I'm currently in the hospital but will be getting out sometime this morning. I have to say it wasn't nearly as bad as I though it would be.. Not a lot of pain and I'm keeping everything down. So hopefully it stays that way!

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

        I am sorry to hear you are struggling. Do what you need to do to stay healthy mentally and physically. I hope you can get to the other side of your depression. Hang in there.

      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.
