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 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 .
