Let me tell ya'll about this dream...

Good morning everyone!

I had a super weird dream last night and I couldn't wait to get to work so I can tell you all about it. It's a long one.

I hope to get VSG during spring break. I am freaking out about every detail because I've never had to stay in a hospital before.

So here goes...

The dream started out with a call from the hospital. They called me and told me to come in immediately for my surgery. I was confused because I thought my surgery would be happening at a later date. I told the woman on the phone that and she hit me with "Do you want the surgery or not?" So I'm like, "Yeah. I'm on my way." So my boyfriend and I get to the hospital and I'm so freaked out. I noticed that we did not pack a hospital bag and I was upset because I didn't have lip balm. (A lot of you guys say lip balm is a life saver after surgery.) So I was upset. My boyfriend offers me his lip balm but I'm still upset. So then, a doctor comes and separates us. The hospital staff puts me on a table and numbs an area on my stomach. In my mind I'm like, "So this is it. Here I go." So only a small part of my stomach is numb and the surgeon is like "Okay WeGettingThere, I'm gonna do an incision." He cuts a little and he leaves me like that. I'm not bleeding or anything. There's just this small gash in my belly. The surgeon is like "My assistant will finish this." HE LEAVES ME. The assistant doesn't do anything! She shows me to my recovery room and my boyfriend is there waiting for me. I'm like "Excuse me. I don't think I'm supposed to be left like this." AGAIN, I'M NOT BLEEDING. The assistant says I'm fine and to relax while she sits at the foot of my recovery bed and watches Maury or Jerry Springer. I forget. END OF DREAM.

So that was my dream. What do you all think? Did you guys have dreams about your procedures? Share them!

But why? Why did this need to be cross-posted in multiple forums? *scratches head*

Because after I posted it in the VSG forum, I thought that maybe rants and raves would be a more appropriate home for it. Does the post being in two places make sense now?

Yes. And no. 😕

Bottom line, you will get people confused as to where to answer and it clogs up the sidebar with the same post title in different places. It's confusing.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
