I just left my surgeon's office. I am officially scheduled for December 4th!!! I'm so excited. I've decided to go with the bypass and finally feel confident with my decision because I struggled between the sleeve vs. bypass. wishing you an amazing journey. Happy Holidays to us!

That is awesome! I’m waiting on insurance to approve and it’s nerve-wracking! Do you have to do the clear liquid diet 2 weeks prior? If so, you’ll be starting that during Thanksgiving right? That sucks!

I'm December 10th! I have my pre-op day long appointment on the 15th so I'll find out about the liquid diet then, but most likely have to do two weeks starting the monday after Thanksgiving. We're in this together! :)

Well 3 Big10, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, as soon as you find out where Honeybee winged in from, you will have a nice grouping. FYI my birthday is December 26, and my Wedding Anniversary was December 9th, I have been widowed 6 and a half years, not that anyone asked. I will be following you December Snowballs with great interest, I had a RnY 9 weeks ago and am back at OSU awaiting a return endiscopy, my 3rd. I have a stricture of my stoma they just can't get stretched so I can get off my liquid diet. No worries , it is relatively rare, but I still will never regret surgery, I have lost 60+ pounds since July 31st, something else wonderful to life, and as the Fat Caccoon cracks maybe the outside world will see the real Frustr8 bursting free. I always knew I was cute, smart, worthwhile to know but the outside 🌎 they see Fat and deprecate us all. Covers can be so blotched, torn &worn, open the Book Of Me, I am well worth the Read!

      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!
