December 2018 Sleevers!



Recommended Posts

Hi I’m new here, my surgery is scheduled for dec 7! I feel very overwhelmed at the moment— with all the prep and appointments I’ve been having just to get it all done! I know it’s the home stretch but it’s been a lot!! I go in between feelings of nervousness and excitment! Looking forward to chatting with you all!

I am scheduled for December 26th! Day after Christmas. Will be spending Christmas Eve on a liquid diet, lol. I’m very nervous

Perfectly normal to feel nervous, you'll do great! :)

From what I understand, the liquid diet is really only for the 72-48 hours before your surgery. The pre-surgery diet (2 weeks prior) usually consists of low calories and clean eating. Nothing of what I call the "white death"... no dairy, no sugar, no wheat :(

Does anyone know how I can get my rings off of my fat fingers??? I am pretty sure I have to take them off for surgery. They have been on for almost 30 years and getting them off is going to be a chore. Thoughts?? Thanks!!

My surgeon and many other surgeons in my area want you on a complete liquid diet for 2 weeks prior to surgery. Protein Bars are the only non liquid form of food. Where did you hear this?

The nurses at the hospital helped take my grandmothers jewelry off of her before surgery, but they unfortunately had to cut her bangles off. I would try to attend YouTube University for some tips and tricks to see if you can get them off beforehand so you don’t have the same experience!

Au contraire, mon ami! My liquid diet is 8 days prior to surgery - mostly milk and yogurt and clears, then clears only 24 hours before. I might be ready to perish at that point!

Guess every surgeon is different

      Going through a lot of personal issues...came to visit my mom to try and figure out what I need to do. I'm really experiencing that head hunger I keep hearing about. In my lowest moments I feel most hungry. My stomach hurts like I'm starving. Trying to get in and see a therapist ASAP. Just really struggling to keep it all together. It's really weird to feel like this and not have food...I feel lost. SOunds so ridiculous. Sorry to be a downer, just been a hell of a day. 😕

      Today I decided  along with grilled salmon I would eat yogurt. Not mixed together but bite for bite. Things are getting weird at Chateau GreenTealael

      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)

      Scheduled 11/05/2018 for the second time to get a gastric sleeve. woke up from surgery with the nurses telling me. They were unable to do surgery .unable to introduce Laparoscopy when it needed to be. had to abort it. Too dangerous for me. I was so Very Depressed. I'm doing better with the depression. I must believe My Doctor Aborted surgery to Protect me .But I wanted this surgery so bad. Well I'm suppose to see him on 11/16/18 to discuss alternative methods. Hopefully I can Reschedule it for the third time

      5 days Post op Update:
      Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!
