@sanfletch70 - You’re my Surgery Twin! I’m on June 25th. I’m nervous too. I’m just sitting in the waiting room at my surgeon’s office for my Pre-Op appointment. I have an entire bag of Vitamins with me so they can review and make sure I have the right stuff. I’m sure they are going to think I’m crazy. Haha! I just started becoming active on this Forum and am really enjoying the support. Sending you the best. Happy to have all these June RNY buddies.

I am scheduled for my RNY on June 13th. Scripps Memorial Hospital in San Diego. Today is my last day of work at my job in Illinois before I take short term disability and I fly out on Monday. I am looking forward to the surgery and look forward to the positive impact this tool should afford me.

Congrats on your upcoming Surgery! Do you have family in San Diego? Safe travels as you travel West.

Pre-Op went great today! First, I paid for the surgery in full with the office ($$$!!!!! ouch - but a good ouch - this is the beginning of a big change and journey in my life). The Bariatric Coordinator reviewed all my Vitamins and I'm in good shape. I received my binder (WLS Bible) which I'm eager to read over in detail. We discussed the Pre-Op Diet again which starts 10 days before surgery. The Bariatric Coordinator answered all my zillions of questions. I had a little pocket size moleskine that I've been keeping questions and notes in. By the time the Surgeon came in, I really had no further questions as I felt like everything had been answered already. I received my Pain RX script and also was told my surgery would be at 12:30 P.M. on Monday, 6/25. However, they did say that the time could easily get moved up to earlier in the day. I received a goodie/sample bag of various vitamins and shakes and juices to try out. The team is amazing and I learned that the facility that I'm having surgery in is so brand new that it actually is opening next week. They said the recovery rooms are like a hotel room with an amazing view and for patient visitors, the lounge is insane with an amazing coffee shop. YAY! I am a sucker for architecture, NEW, aesthetics and design. They told me the Nurse Anesthetist will call me in the near future to go over all surgery related stuff (timing, meds, what to expect, etc.). I left feeling pretty excited. I went to CVS after and filled my RX and purchased a few more items: liquid Tylenol, Pepcid Complete (which I need to take 2 a day for the first 6 weeks before I graduate to calcium citrate chewable). I'm going to jump online and buy some Gas X strips. Otherwise, I feel pretty prepared in terms of supplies.

Hi! I’m scheduled for RnY on June 25th and am feeling excited, scared, not quite prepared but spending time researching. Preop consult is June 8th. Ten day Preop diet starts June 15th. Best wishes to all!

I’m june 25th too! Extremely nervous and sometimes second guessing doing it. I have a pre op June 11th. I asked what the pre surgery diet was...they said liquid diet the day before. Which makes me nervous reading everyone’s comments on here because it seems it’s different for you.

      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.
