Go in tomorrow first thing in the morning. Some words of assurance on the surgery itself would be nice. I've never had any kind of anesthesia, so I'm more worried about that than anything. Anyone else freak out about that? Words of encouragement on that would be nice. Do you just knod off or is it instant?

I also am tomorrow morning. You will have the opportunity to speak to the anesthesiologist before surgery. Tell them your concerns. My experience as always been to go out quickly. Tell will be talking to you and you won’t even realize it. Best to you and me. 🙏🙏

Same issue! I dont think its the steri strips just the incisions themselves. So itchy!

Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

Yes. And I forgot and scratched one of my incisions open. I covered it up with like 6 band aids. I hope it closes back up without me having to go back to the hospital.

Hi JennieJuniper. I hope your day has gotten a little better. Can you go take a walk with some good music on and try to clear your head?

Hi Georgetown.. I’m working from home today but can’t concentrate. I feel like everyone is yelling at me for feeling sick and it’s just so frustrating. Raining here today but maybe a walk would help :) thanks!!

Hi folks,

I had my surgery October 3,2018

it went really well and I came home the next day. I did great til day 4,5 when I started having severe pain and I had to be readmitted to the hospital. I had some spleen complications. I am home again since day 7 and I am feeling super antsy, super itchy in my incisions, and super wishing I could “eat” not drink my food. I am definitely struggling last night and today with “food withdrawal”

Four days until surgery. The liquid pre-op diet + no coffee has me a little weak and confused. But excited!

This is the last time I'm posting this list, but if someone else wants to take over updating it, please feel free. I just lost a family member (my father's husband, after losing my father last year), and I've kind of got other things to focus on right now. Don't look for me on the boards for a while. Thanks for understanding.

      12/12I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week well five days ago so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy

      The sad dejected truth that you are not the same size in a plush padded vs. Lacy unlined bra. And should have known it. Sigh.

        Guess the new bra/panty set was a bust?

        Guess the new bra/panty set was a bust?

        I see what you did there!

        Also, boobs are dumb. I'm pretty sure I'll be tucking mine iento my socks in a few months!

      3. GreenTealael

        I see what you did lol

        They still kinda work but only by accident 😓, I couldn't find my exact size so I decided to play around with band/cup manipulation. But now I know padded bras may be adding a full cup size I don't own...

        I've been counting on that for years!

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...
