November Bypass?



Recommended Posts

I’m scheduled for my surgery November 7th, and it’s starting to feel real. I’m having a lap band to bypass revision and only taking one week off from work (nine days counting the weekend). A little worried about just a week.

Anyone else in November?

I was a Band to Bypass revision. A week is pretty short, and my surgery was SUPER easy... and even still, a week would not have been enough time to be comfortable going back to work. I'd highly suggest getting more time if you can.

I’ll keep the option open to half days on Wed/Thu/Fri. I have a desk job so hopefully it will be o.k.

Mombod: Starting to prepare for the pre-op diet. I’ll do low carb/low fat for two weeks then three days before switch to Clear Liquids. Had my blood and stress test yesterday. I just want Nov 7th to be here!

I’m only telling a few family members and am trying to figure out how to navigate the secrecy. Kind of strange.

My doctor isn't having me do clear liquids at all pre-op. He said I have to do a week of Protein Shakes and lean cuisines, which is kinda strange I thought.

I scheduled my surgery today for November 13. That will give me the rest of that week and Thanksgiving week to recover.

That’s great. I tried for that date but couldn’t get it. 30 days until surgery so getting excited! Starting low carb low fat tomorrow. Just want it to be here.

November 5th for me!

I'm terrified, but started drinking the Premier Protein shakes and Greek yogurts for Breakfast and lunch about 3 weeks ago. I'm happy that those, to me, are incredibly filling...which makes me a little worried about how hard it will be to force down anything once our stomachs are tiny :/

November 5, you’ll go in two days before me. I started my low carb low fat this weekend. You’ve been on yours for three weeks, that’s great. Your body will be ready for it. I go to liquids on November 1 then surgery on the 7th. I can’t wait. I really want to make this work.

I can’t figure out how to change my surgery/height/weight. It’s from when I had my lap band in 2011, it’s very old!

Good luck to you and glad to have people going through this together!

My surgery is November 1st. I don't have to do clear liquids either. I do 3 shakes a day and one Healthy Choice/Lean Cuisine for 15 days prior. I start that on October 16th. Not complaining! lol.

My date was scheduled for Oct. 8 but I had to reschedule until Nov 9 because of my father in laws passing. I just didn’t feel I could focus on this 100% at the time. I am ready for this Nov surgery.

So sorry about your father in law. November 9th is around the corner. I’ll be coming home as you go in and I can give you the download. I’m trying out different Vitamins to try out. I bought the berimelts but think they might be too sweet. I want to do the Patches but my nutritionist advised against it.

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
