Surgery in 2 1/2 hours and I am a nervous wreck 😢



Recommended Posts

I haven’t slept all night.. I am so excited to get this done, but I have never had surgery, and the unknown is worrying me. I’ve cried on and off the past 24 hours. Is this normal?

Yes!!! I have had lots of surgeries/general anaesthetic procedures (so many I have lost count) and I still felt nervous going under this last time for my bypass. You will get through this!! It's hard but totally doable. Just keep reminding yourself why you are doing this, and that the docs wouldn't do it if they didn't think it was in your best health interest!!

Perfectly normal to be nervous, I am always terrified of anaesthesia.

Thimk not long now and you will be a postop patient and on your way to the new you

Super normal :)
The next few weeks as you start to lose you’ll be emotional so expect that too.
You’ll do great!

Getting through surgery and that first month is the hardest part! Soon the weight will be falling off and you'll be like the rest of us raving that it was the best thing youve ever done! Good luck!

It’s normal! I almost started crying in the pre-op waiting area after that hooked me up to the IV!

The first week is rough, but you can do it! Being able to look through the forums here and talk to be people helped immensely. You’re not alone!

Hope all went well! I was a nervous wreck before mine but excited as well. I will be one month post op come this Saturday. First few days are the hardest but nothing you can't handle, then like someone already said, you'll be like the rest of us saying it was the best thing you ever did!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
