How r my Marchees doing?! I am approaching my surgery date on 3/11 n question myself everyday if this is the correct path? Not going to lie I’m shitting bricks! Surprisingly the preop diet isn’t that bad, I can’t wait to eat at dinner. How did u know the MGB/GBP was the right route vs the sleeve? My BMI is 33

So exciting, you’re surgery is around the corner! I hope that all goes well! I had my RNYGB this past Minday the 4th along with a hiatal hernia repair. My BMI is 45. The decision was made for me as my endoscopy indicated reflux and inflammation from acid which ruled me out from the sleeve. Surgery was smooth thank G-d and I went home the next day. Pain is definitely an issue but I know it’s temporary. I was most nervous about gas pain but I don’t have any, funny how we’re all so different. Good luck to you and check in after surgery!

HI, March buddies. I had my bypass on March 3 and am still in the hospital due to complications. My surgeon told me that everything had gone beautifully. However, I was in pretty severe pain a few hours later and it just kept getting worse. I figured it was just the gas pains everyone talks about and I'm just a wimp. They did a blood test at the following day thought I had an infection, and I had tachycardia, which made them suspect a leak in the pouch. Unfortunately, both were true.

I'm spending this entire week in the hospital. Tomorrow they will install a drain to remove as much of the infection as possible, and I'm also on liquid pain killers and antibiotics via the IV. Once the infection clears, they do a second operation to fix the leak. Two morals of the story: Leaks hurt like hell, and if you think something is not right, contact your doctor immediately!

i'm hoping this is just a temporary setback and that I'll be back on track in no time.

Best of luck to the rest of the February club!

I'm so sorry that you had a complicated course. I hope it's smooth sailing after the infection clears and leak resolves. Best of luck to you, I will keep you in my thoughts.

Cher, so far so good. Still in the Hospital but being discharged in a couple hours. No issues so far. Gas pain isn’t as bad as I though. Pain in general is not as bad as I imagined but I am on serious nerve block drugs so I’ll report back when they wear off! 😁. Now I move on to the changing my whole mindset portion of this adventure. Feeling a little nervous about that but I know it’s just me being over anxious.

It's interesting to see how different surgeons have different diets both pre and post-op, yet we all successful in the end.
Now that I'm on liquids, the surgery is becoming quite real. My emotions range from terrified to excited to just wanting it to be over.
When is your surgery? Mine is on the 14th and I'm also on the liquid diet right now.

Hi - I had my sleeve done on 3/4. I had one night in the hospital and I’ve been home since yesterday afternoon. It’s going well so far. The gas/chest pains really sucked right after surgery but I was up walking around 3hrs after surgery so I guess that helped. I slept a lot in the hospital and just sipped the tiny cups of Water and tried to walk a lap every few hours. The pain the 2nd day was less chest and more incision pain but nothing close to the C-section pain that I had. So now at home I’m managing the pain well, trying to walk often and sit upright a lot and I’m sipping my water and Protein Shakes slowly but pretty constantly. I learned my lesson quickly when I tried to drink too much water the first day. I’m feeling good both mentally and physically!

Recidivist,

I’m so sorry you are going through this. Thankfully you advocated for yourself and they caught the leak in the hospital. I hope they get you all mended up and you can continue on your path. Good luck!!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
