I feel the same mc2017!

My surgery was changed from August 27th to September 5th because of the OR getting some changes. I will be having mine with Dr. Taylor at Barix Clinics of Michigan in Ypsilanti. This has been a long process that started in January 2018 because I had stage 4 osteoarthritis in my right hip. I have since had a total hip replacement but my left hip has stage 2 osteoarthritis. At 48, I am too young to feel this damn old. My orthopedic surgeon assures me that losing the extra weight will get me back to my dancing days with the Hubby. Thankfully, Hubby understands that I am doing this to get back to my old self and to be able to keep up with him.

Congratulations on your future RnY, I am happy to find a bypass surgery twin , the other 3 I know of are all sleeve candidates. I will have mine at Ohio State University with Dr Bradley J Needleman. I have been work8ng towards mine since August 2015, long twisted story, but it will be finally finished and then I can move forward into my future life with an effective helper. I have been so sick and tired of being sick and and tired. I fear surgery much less than continuing as I am.

Hi everyone. So glad people answered!! It is great to have support and go through it together at the same stages. I am in Australia so my hospital and surgeon won't mean anything! I had a sleeve done jan 2015. Not really a problem till july 2017 when i started to get nausea and reflux. I ate more fatty foods and junk so started to gain weight. When i went to the surgeon last month and had a ct and gastroscopy...it showed i have gastritis and a kink in my sleeve. So on 19th sept (aussie time) i am having surgery to remove the kink and convert to bypass. Am currently eating some foods i like that i won't be able to eat afterwards and on 5th sept start my 2 week pre op diet. Feeling impatient but nervous at the same rime

@ Miss Poodle, the same day you start your presurgery preparation I shall be having my RnY surgery. Any prayers and Good Wishes directed at me on that day I shall be grateful for. This is a brave new world we will be entering, but one I have been yearning for.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
