Whew! It has been a long day! Everything went well, and all I can say is stay in front of the pain. I dont think I was mentally prepared for how much it would hurt. But walking and moving definitely helps.


Glad you are doing well! Hope you feel better soon! Wishing you a speedy recovery!

Yea, it feels like Ive done a super serious ab workout then followed up by being kicked in the gut. Noone ever mentioned the pain, so i definitely wasnt expecting it and was not mentally prepared for it. So far tho I havent had much nausea at all. But I did get a scopolamine patch prior to surgery too, which i think it helping tremendously.

Did you by any chance have a hiatal hernia repair during surgery? From what I’ve been reading that may add to the pain. Hope you feel better soon

Mine is tomorrow morning and I'm still just having a hard time believing it. I can't wrap my brain around the fact that it's already here.

I can only imagine the night before jitters. Thinking of you, @Trixie82. Just think about all the reasons why you wanted the surgery. Think about all the positive things and love in your life and carry those happy thoughts with you. You're about to go take a really nice nap tomorrow and everything is going to feel like puppies and rainbows. Know that we are here for you when you're ready. You're about to embark on an incredible journey and I can't wait to join you! :) All the best.

I'm not even nervous right now. I'm just ready to be on the other side of this. I've been on Clear Liquids all day and this is actually the hungriest I've been in this whole 2 week preop diet process. Thank you for the words of encouragement! They really do help! I'll check in tomorrow when I can. Surgery is at 7:30

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
