checking in on those from surgery day yesterday!? AshAsh12 was the only name I could remember... Hope all is doing well so far. My pre-op diet starts on the 18th and surgery on the 25th. Nerves getting a little stronger.

I had mine done yesterday and was pretty out of it. I slept most of the day which I guess helps with the pain

Yes I am better today and yesterday wasn't even that bad really. I haven't had the gas pains that most people have. I'm really not sure why because that was my biggest fear. I was able to shower today. I just feel really hungry and I think that's what I keep feeling. I wasn't allowed to eat yesterday or today

Congrats @ClarksvilleSleever . That is so great your recovery is going so well!!!! Indeed keep up posted on your progress.

You should maybe make a separate thread so It's not mixed up and lost in this one.

Thank you the surgery went well!! Yesterday I was very sick with nausea and I even threw up once. I didn’t have any pain and almost no gas. Today I woke up with no nausea and still no pain but I do have some gas in my chest area! However it isn’t unbearable. The one down side of my day is that I had to try the swallow test a couple times and failed each time. For some reason the contrast is stuck in my esophagus and won’t move to my new sleeve. They say it can be normal because of swelling. Just talked to my surgeon for the first time since surgery and he seems very positive about it. So that you all for the well wishes!!

After going through 2 programs in 2 years because of insurance issues and poor treatment, I FINALLY have a surgery date, July 30th! I love my doctor and his staff. They are the only people that have shown concern for my hernia repair. I’m current doing 2 shakes or meals and eating only 1 meal per day. I have a pre-op appointment on the 17th. Start my liquid only diet on the 23rd and surgery the 30th. I’m so ready to get to get this done!

      Hate thinking about foods I used to love... Burgers & wings. Gotta stay focused. 😤

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
