Lol not laughing at you but everything has been going good also except I can’t pee, they had to straight catheter me yesterday, I’m hoping more walking today and I will be able to go. I stopped the morphine hoping this will help.
Mine came out at 6 and I have not had pain meds since 2am but ready to just so I can get a nap omg I’m so tired. I did get the pump thing on my stomach and get to keep it for 5 days, thank god I don’t have to go anywhere ha ha. I still am having some pressure in the top of my stomach near my ribs and can’t get a deep breath but I’m not gonna stop trying:) Hope you can pee soon!

My liquid diet started today--surgery is tomorrow, won't know what time until this afternoon when they call...

Excited, very nervous, but love reading how everyone who has gone ahead of me this month is doing now! Trying to get myself good an hydrated. I expect I probably won't be able to sleep tonight...

Doing all ok here. On pain meds from an IV. Compression socks on. And also these calf wraps that massage. Just feel tired. I also have oxygen.

I’m so grateful for this forum and all the lovely people on who have shared, to the women who have also shared on instagram & YouTube. I feel blessed to have had that as a support to inform me.

I hope everyone is doing great. Sending everyone much love, support and whatever it is you need. We can all do this, this has given me hope for great change to make life so much better. I can feel happiness sifting in. Things will be difficult but no matter what challenges lay ahead, we can all do this step by step. It’s a big thing we’ve all made the decision to do to help ourselves.

My weigh in at surgery was 293.3 so down.

Night night everyone. 😊☺️🤩

I love hearing about everyone who has already had their surgery. I hope you all are recovering well.
My bypass is tomorrow, so I am on a clear liquid diet all day today. I have to drink magnesium citrate today also. I know that is supposed to “clean out” my digestive track 😃, so I am a little nervous about the timing. I have to leave the house to get my girls from school and I need to go to Target at some point today. I really don’t want any embarrassing bathroom situations to occur.
Other than that, I am going to pack my bag today and do some cleaning around the house in case I don’t feel like doing that for a while. I also need to remember to have my husband take some “before” pictures tonight.
I hope I’m not forgetting anything!

Yes indeed! I feel the same way--a very long time coming. I am on that roller coaster of nerves and excitement. I won't know what time my surgery is until this afternoon when they call. I am a little anxious!

17april🙋‍♂️ This time next week it will all be over/beginning! To say I’m nervous is a massive understatement! The pre op diet is testing to say the least as I live away with work in hotels surrounded by fast food. I’ve made a few rubbish choices last week and with a week to go I hope I’ll be ok and haven’t done to much damage. Good luck everyone!

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.
