Hi Everyone!

Well, it has been about 48 hours since I came out of my RNY surgery. I am feeling really pretty good! I haven't taken anything for pain and I am able to get Water down pretty easy. I have done some walks and I seem to sleep comfortably when I need to. So far. I feel super lucky as far as recovery goes, I expected it to be much worse.

To my fellow June surgery friends- I am sending you all good thoughts in hopes that each of you do well and continue to get better every day. 💙

So I didnt see a June thread and wanted to make one so we could all stay accountable and have a lot of good and bad experiences together!!! Introducing myself: My name is Kassandra, I am 27 years young, I have 3 great kids, a wonderful hubby, and 3 great cats. I'm a type 2 diabetic & have sleep apnea. I decided to do this to take my life back. I'm 5 ft 2 and 258 lbs. I had planned for the sleeve but my insurance won't cover it right now so RNY it is!

Hi! I'm Angie, 26 years old and Mommy of 2! I had the sleeve done in 2015, 4 months after having my 2nd child and my starting weight was 282 [emoji27] after vsg I got down to 197 lbs and started getting terrible acid reflux and then after my 2nd year I started regaining and now I'm currently at 229 lbs. Because of GERD I'm having revision to bypass on June 17th and I'm hoping for relief and to lose everything I regained and some! I'm currently on day 2 my pre-op diet and it's harder than I remember it being before my sleeve. I just need to get my mind on track.

Welcome darlin!!! Your surgery is 2 days before mine. I started my liquid diet today and at first it was MISERABLE but since it's close to bedtime it isnt so bad. How old are your babies? I have 2 boys (9 &5) and a 2 year old little girl. I've explained surgery to the older 2 and my 9 year old is super excited because he knows that means I won't feel like death trying to play with him.

That's the most exciting part. The victories that involve our babies! My daughters are 6 and 3. I haven't mentioned my surgery to them but I plan to have a talk with them beforehand since we'll be away from each other while I'm in the hospital.

I am miserable right now. I have anti nausea meds and pain meds . I am struggling to keep Water down without vomiting but sugar free popsicles seem to do a little better.

Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

We have the same thing going on. I started vomiting last night and have not stopped. I just really want some Water. I throw up everything that goes in my mouth. My surgeon came by today and added more anti nausea meds.

How many days do you have to be in the hospital? I only have to be there for a day as long as there are no issues. I have to check in at 530 the morning of surgery. My parents are driving me so that my husband and 2 younger kids can sleep in. I'm bringing my 9 year old because he said he wants to be there.

My surgeon says that they leave all wls patients for 2 days to monitor them. The hospital is going to call me the day Friday before surgery to tell me what time to be there, which I assume will also be early in the AM. My husband is going to drive me the day of and my mom is staying with my girls for a few days since he has to work.

I was hoping my husband would be able to take off for a few days to help me around the house and with the kiddos but he cant. He'll be off work day of surgery and the day after to take care of the kids while I'm in the hospital. I'm super excited though. Its finally starting to feel real.

I’m only allowed 1 night, but i will stay close to the hospital for about 2 days after. That way if there are any problems that arise after surgery and before I drive home, they can be addressed. I live a 2 1/2 hours from the hospital where my surgery will take place. But it was worth it to me to find a surgeon and hospital I could be comfortable with.

I totally get that. In my opinion, having a medical team you are comfortable with and trust is the biggest part of this process. I live about an hour and 15 minutes from my surgeons office.

@Janet G Burch and @grl499 Welcome to both of you. Grl499, you're a day before me and Janet is a day after. Mine is 6/15. The pre and post OP liquids aren't bad (once you find Protein Shakes you can actually stomach). Once you get past the first week or so of detoxing from all the carbs your energy will start to come back as you'll be in ketosis and your body burning fat for energy. Good luck to you both on this life changing journey.


I have a problem with pain meds they tend to make me sick, who was your surgeon ?

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
