Hello fellow September surgery gang. My name's Beth, and mygastric bypass is scheduled for September 24th. Definately getting a little nervous! I'm a week into the "blended" diet. Started off at 338 pounds, down 60 as of today.

These boards have been an amazing place for information. I'm a little shy about posting, but I'm so glad to see the great community here!

My surgery is tomorrow. I tried to take my regular medication crushed with water...these past 2 days...yuk!!!
Had acupuncture yesterday to help with the surgery and healing afterward. Bought some loose fitting clothing f or the hospital. Now waiting to get the phone call from the hospital to tell me what time i need to be there in the morning. The accupuncture definitely had helped with the pre op nerves.

That's a good idea never thought about acupuncture for your nerves

Any of you on the pureed diet? I am hoping to get the approval to move forward today. How much did you start off eating at first? What did you eat? I am thinking of trying egg salad ? 1 oz 2 ounce? How did it go? How did the restriction feel?

Just got my date today. Was hoping for end of September but ended up with October 2nd. Close enough for me. Excited and nervous at the same time.

How long did you wait? Where are you from?

I just had my surgery on the 12th and they didn’t let me go home until the 15th. I’m here if you need to talk or anything.

        What would you normally do?

        Instead of planning a meal, what about an activity that you enjoy.

        If the weather is nice, plan a picnic and explain that you are not eating and will not be providing a cake instead if you wanted you could have birdseed bags that people could use to feed the birds or the ducks in a pond at the park where the picnic would be held. Everyone could bring their own lunch if they wanted to attend and you would only have to make little birdseed bags.

        If nature walks are more your style, do something along those lines and just let everyone know that for your birthday you are planning an activity and not a party. There will be no cake and ice cream if that is what they are looking for, they can just stay home.

        You could ask your friends to join you in a day of caring and you could all volunteer together somewhere either serving at a soup kitchen, helping at a shelter or a children's center or even a senior center.

        Of what?

      2. GreenTealael

        Of what indeed. I thought at first I should give up coffee, nonsense.h Then I thought I should go out for coffee with friends more. Then I thought I should go to Italy for coffee with friends and get a new maker...

      Hi i'm dorijae, and into my pre-op evals, still undecided as to sleeve or bypass, but thinking bypass.  Happy to see this support group.  Have read some of the blogs on surgery, etc.

        Welome dorijae2018, there are lot of supportive people on the forums, if you have any questions many are only too happy to help

        Welcome. We are pretty friendly most of the time. Use the spyglass search option at the top of the forum page to find specific topics. We all decide on the type of surgery based on our current personal health conditions, what we prefer our outcome to be, and research we do. Some prefer bypass because they have consistent GERD, or fear getting it, some want a little faster initial weight loss, or consider it the best standard in bariatrics. Others prefer the sleeve because they do not want malabsorption of vitamins - particularly iron, want their stomach to have the valve and vagus nerve stay intact, don't want a pouch that can stretch, and lose just a little slower over a longer time frame. The real outcomes for overall weight loss is not much different in either surgery at the 18 month mark. It is a very personal decision and don't let anyone make it for you. Read and read some more and ask your surgeon a lot of questions. Good luck.
