September bypass buddies??



Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am scheduled for gastric bypass September 6th in Tacoma Washington. 6 days into preop diet and it is getting easier. I have to agree with Frustr8 that I am more concerned about life if I did not do this. I just keep reminding myself I want to be here for my grandchildren.

HI! Just wondered are you for 2 weeks of liquids for your pre op diet? I am only on day 2. I'm am glad to hear you say it is getting easier. 14 days seems like forever today.

I'm jealous! Mine is full liquids only for 2 weeks. :( Best of luck to you on your surgery!

So I had 5 hours of pre admission testing today and I had most of my questions answered. I received a dine out / medical alert card, my incentive spirometer, my Hibiclens and Cleansing cloths,and my pre-surgery ensure drinks. The program emphasizes using whey Protein isolate (which I learned today that I don’t have-oops lol). I bought an Unjury protein starter kit, and 2 flavors of powder to make Protein Powder. Everything is pictured (two of each powder flavor,thermometer,shaker bottle, one vanilla shake, and one chocolate shake). I was not given a pre op diet. Basically from now on I NEED to hit my Water intake goal, walk daily, and eat protein, veggies,watch my sugar,and watch my carbs. I’ll use my protein powder (not isolate) as a Meal Replacement option pre op as well. I’m almost done! Next appointment is with the surgeon 6 days before my surgery. RnY scheduled for 9/17/18

Got my surgery date October 26th so the count down starts. Going in I was going for the gastric bypass but my Dr informed me that I have a Iron deficiency and the gastric bypass can bring your blood down even lower to a point where I would have to get iron infused by an iv once a week so I said no way. Ill start with the sleeve and if my acid reflux gets too crazy even with meds then ill think about converting. I'm so excited and scared at the same time. Is there anyone else's surgery in October?

I think the "celebrations" of Christmas and birthdays , thanksgiving etc are going to be a challenge. It will be good to support one another through those times
