Welcome to June RNY Buddies! You're doing great with weight loss already. That's a long pre-op diet. There are several of us with dates right around you. Keep checking back. Sending you all the best for next week. I'm a mix of nervous and excited too! <3

Learning how to respond, not used to forums. I had to start early because my liver was 24cm and not the preferred 16cm. Surgeon recommended to extend diet. I am having Optifast x 3 meals, plus diet jelly for snack and certain vegetables 2-3 cups a day.

Wow! Home already? That’s really fast. No time to observe or make sure your ready it seems like. I think we should get a couple nights in to verify all is good a couple days out.


I agree, that was super fast. I know here in Connecticut you have a mandatory overnight stay of at least 1 night for the sleeve and at least 2 for the bypass. I thought this was standard everywhere but now I’ve seen twice this month alone people leaving after a day. Praying speedy recoveries for everyone

Staying one night at the hospital was the plan the doctor decided. I couldn't be in that room another day lol.

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.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
