March 2019 sleepers



Recommended Posts

Well technically You All Are March Sleepers, nobody is doing such Bariatric Surgery with a local, my Doctor Needleman is as brave as most but even HE wouldn't want ME awake making comments through the whole procedure. Just. some get ESG,VSG, DS, RnY bypass but every man Jack is in La- La-Land at that time. I was an awake endoscopy, an EGJ, but THAT wasn't planned, they undersedated me, red-heads require more. Did not scare me and/or upset me but then I'm the 1 in a million person. So dang special I nearly stink!👈😝👉

I'm getting nervous about my ability to follow through with all the changes I have to make- any suggestions?

This is my 3rd bariatric surgery. Taking it one day at a time for the pre-op diet is key. Make sure you space out your Protein Shakes equally throughout the day and stay hydrated with Water (crystal light, no sugar drinks) and broth. If you know you have a bad habit of late night eating plan for that by getting to bed early or just keeping busy and preoccupied. Boredom is not your friend during the liquid diet phase. Good luck!!

You’re feeling nauseated and tired on the pre-op diet? I think that’s relatively normal if your otherwise healthy. What day are you on? It’s an adjustment from the way we use to eat to the pre-op diet way. You should feel better soon once you get into the zone and get use to the change.

Hi! I had the lap band and revised to sleeve 05/2017. I lost about 75lbs. I did really really well. But at almost 6 months out I developed severe Reflux. After trying every ppi and otc reflux med out there and not getting a satisfactory response from my surgeon I switched hospitals. My current surgeon believes that is it a possibility that the surgeon who did my sleeve was inexperienced with lap band to RNY and choose to go with what he could handle. I’ve regained about 25lbs because bread and nuts didn’t really agitate my reflux as much and sometimes it was easier to choose not being in pain. If you already have GERD and/or reflux be aware that it can get worse after the sleeve. A lot of ppl who have the sleeve as a virgin surgery do just fine on it and don’t have these complications. I’m just happy that the end is almost in sight! Good luck!

Congrats to you March Sleevers- I start my 2 week preop diet tomorrow. Surgery is March 12. I've got everything bagged and ready and a shaker bottle, chicken broth and sugar free Jello. I hope I'm as mentally ready as I am physically ready. We've got this. :)

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      3. FluffyChix

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.
