Hey Sleevers!

Just wondering, is anyone else having a Veritcal Sleeve surgery this month? My surgery is on May 13 (two days before my birthday). Let me know! 💜

P.S If you already had surgery this month, let me know how it went! 🌸

Hey Krestel! From what I have heard, I believe that the nurse will give you an injection, before the surgery, that should help prevent blood clots. Regardless of that, however, I will pray for you!

Yeah, I kniw that, but both my mom and sister died from them. so...scared beyond belief. Only the anesthesia and heart is a very far off second and there im pretty much ok.

I am incredibly sorry to hear that, Krestel. No wonder why you are scared beyond belief. I truly hope that your surgery goes by smoothly and safely; as well as your recovery. Take care! ❤️

My surgery is tomorrow 5/13/19. Today I'm supposedly only drinking clear liquid and the shakes. But I feel so hungry, I'm fighting over not to take a bite. What should I do? Please help. Any suggestions?

You have come to far to “take a bit “. I’m not sure if you had. 2 week liquid diet like most, but stay strong don’t give in to temptation. This is Day 4 for me and with it being a holiday I know temptations is everywhere. But guess what that’s never going to change so hold on you can do it....

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
