Thank you daisy7914. Im getting the bypass. Dr has to remove the lapband. He said, probably won’t be able to do the sleeve because of scar tissue

I had mine done 5/9/19. Stood 6’ 2” tall with a clothed weight of 315 pounds and a BMI if 39.5 the day of surgery. I have my first post-op appointment tomorrow (5/15/19). Obviously I’m the same height, but my clothed weight today (5/14/19) is 291 pounds.

So far it has been clear liquids: beef or chicken broth, sugar-free popsicles and jell-o, 50-50 diluted Gatorade, etc but I have to admit: I want to eat some solid food!

I have made it to the losers bench! Surgery went well. I am sore and tired but I have made it. Will go home on Thursday from what I hear. Also the gas is a b$tch. Make sure you walk and stay on top of your meds. I’m waiting for my next set of meds then back to sleep.< /p>

My surgery is 5-16 and I'm kind of worried about blood clots and the gas due to me being in a wheelchair and not being able to walk! Does anyone have any idea what they do for someone in my situation?

Thanks and good luck and good journey to everyone!

If you were to compare the pain to anything, what would it be? I’m trying to mentally prepare myself

For me it wasn’t ACTUALLY painful per se, but it felt like a lot of pressure in my abdomen, right behind my lower sternum. Like I really needed to burp super hard but just couldn’t get it out. It’s a discomfort combination like when you’ve eaten way too much crossed with really needing to burp.

Well well Mrs Gamgee, today is Surgery Eve, and I am so proud of you staying the course. I am excited as if you were my sister, and in one way, you really are, you have been with me through some of my briars and brambles along the way. Now comes your day to shine and I am sure you will. Prayers🙏, best wishes and a Hug from ME on this day÷

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
