I am a nurse and just had my sleeve on the 1st. I am looking forward to pureed turkey on Thanksgiving as that will be my first puree day. I am down 9 lbs since surgery day and feel great. I have found with the 2 week before surgery diet that gluten is surely a no-no for me. My joints felt so much better even before surgery day. I was a girl scout leader and physically active for years. As the girls got busy and less active so did I. I am looking forward to being able to take that first hike with my son and his boy scouts!!!

I had to do 2 weeks of shakes for Breakfast and lunch with a low fat dinner ie chicken, fish, or low fat pork and a veggie. Lost 1.5lbs lol, that is why I decided on surgery. To many years of yo-yo dieting played havoc with my metabolism.

Hello, surgery twin. I’m the 19th too and actually met a twin while going through the pre-op testing. Most of us I. Education try to take advantage of that week off. Eat wishes

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      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.
