Surgery August 6 2018 - so nervous



Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am getting my surgery today. Excited but nervous too. I am revising from Sleeve to MGB. I look forward to this tool being the right one for me. My only fear and worry is that I need to take Vitamins every day and for life.

How are you all coping and what can you tell to put me more at ease. What was also the hardest for you?

Thanks

Good luck today!
Taking the Vitamins daily isn't even really that much of an issue overall.

I'm curious how you are going to be revised to the mini bypass after the sleeve since the sleeve removes the part of the stomach that gets attached lower during the bypass/mini bypass.

Hope you all report back to us. The sheer number of Pals put my Worry Wart machine in over-drive!😧💦😧

I hope it all is going well for you--be patient!

At first, managing the Vitamins and the Water felt like a full time job, but it becomes easier over time!

Good luck.

Thank you all so much. Appreciate it. Recovery is going very nicely. Almost even smoother than my sleeve, provided I dont attempt anything crazy like eat wrong thing or overeat.

Thank you, Ellie..Best of wishes to you! Recovery is going well. I have not had any pain since I've gone home. Sleeve and MGB feel different too. Although I'm not eating yet, I can tell from just drinking liquids that i will need to pace myself better than when i had the sleeve, which had the restriction. I fear dumping more so, I worry about how I will react to things, like hours later. Sugar is a no, no... which different from the sleeve too.

No hunger. Too early to say this for sure but if things continue going well like this, I'm wondering if I should have gone with the MGB from the start. Best of wishes to you. [emoji3]

Oh wow... @SusieSouth so glad you are processing so well, anc very excited you are on the healing end of things and your pain is managed. How cool is that!! I was wondering...are you saying you can drink more and feel less restriction? Just trying to understand what you meant by “pace myself better”?

When I woke from Sleeve I remember feeling like there was a giant hole where my torso is. A beautiful and welcome relief from the mind-stomach connection and zero hunger . It was SUCH a relief! Sadly it did not last :(

any other Sleeve vrs Bypass differences you are noticing? I thought bypass was restrictive??
