I have mine on August 13th! ahhh I am excited but a little nervous. What is everyone doing to prepare?
I am thinking I will buy an assortment of like Protein Drinks and shakes and Protein water....I plan to eat really well and go ahead and get in the habit of going to the gym a few days a week. I have kind of been eating and drinking whatever I wanted the last couple weeks, but am ready to go ahead and move into this healthy lifestyle :)

I have vacation in 2 weeks so I am going to live up my eating and drinking on vacation then switch to practice mode pre-surgery. I am sad to not have wine for a year :(.. but all in all will be worth it!

I’m Aug 13th. I have vacation in 1.5 days! I also plan on being lax about food during that week and then hitting my healthy diet hard when I return.

I have several family events coming up before surgery and a couple of restaurants that I want to say goodbye to. For at least a year.

Hello Everybody!

Just joined today after having trolled the site this week!

My sleeve surgery is scheduled for Aug 16th and I am so very excited to get this done! I have a high tolerance for pain, but for some reason am feeling like a chicken when I think about the potential pain to come from this surgery! I think it is just nerves and I'll be fine!

I do have a question-do you need someone to be with you your first night home?

      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.
