Hi Everyone,
I am having bypass July 30th. I had VSG done in November 2013 and due to severe GERD I am having the bypass done. Just got my surgery day yesterday. I'm somewhat worried about the weight loss. I am 5'9 and currently weigh 147 lbs. I am a size 6 and really don't have any weight to lose. I hope I don't begin to look like a walking corpse :-)

Surgery is tomorrow [emoji50]


I'm sitting at home, showered with that pre surgery soap, planning what time I have to get up in the morning to shower and use the rest of the soap tomorrow morning and make it to the hospital by 7am. Surgery is tomorrow, it's so surreal I have worked so hard for so long to get this surgery and now I sit here about to take that plunge and it just doesn't feel real.

I made it through the dreaded liver shrinking diet, Clear Liquids only today, and I made it through with no cheating even on July 4th. I feel so empowered and ready! But it still doesn't seem real.

This is so strange...

      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.
