Hi! No I only have to do a 3 day clear cleanse! The doctor said maybe lose 5 pounds, but nothing specific! What about you?

Hey! Oh..LOL...I have a 3 week pre-op. It is focused on shrinking my liver as much as possible before surgery. This is common for most ppl on these forums, I think.

I probably weigh a whole lot MORE than you. My BMI is over 50 so I can understand my dr's need to get that fatty liver shrunken up some. Crossing my fingers that it is working!

I had my revision sleeve done 7/3 and I’m in a stand still for weight loss right now. I haven’t lost a pound since I started the purée stage. Anyone else have the problem of a stall? Mine is a week now with no weight loss

Hi Everyone,

How did everyone's surgery go?

I am scheduled for my revision surgery (from sleeve to GB) on July 25th. I deal with GERD and also have a hernia that will be repaired. I am excited and nervous all the same time. But i'm on a new journey in life, I've started a new job and this is just another step in my journey.

I'm interested in hearing how my fellow July surgery buddies are doing. Thank you.

Oh no! How are you feeling now? Have you got support around you? How are you finding the pureed stage? My dr said liquids for 3
weeks then two weeks on pureed, and then two weeks on mashed soft food. I hope your feeling better. xxx

I had a revision on 7/22 from vsg to RNY. My surgeon (not the one who did my sleeve) said I had tons of scar tissue and my operation took almost 4 hours total. For him it looked like I had a small leak that was never caught from my sleeve. Weirdly enough I complained of pain twice in that area and was scoped and everything seemed to look normal.

I’m scheduled for this upcoming Tuesday, July 30th, revision from VSG to RNY, due to GERD and not losing enough weight with the sleeve. Sleeve was done on March 2018, I had a smooth recovery with the first surgery, hoping the same will happen this time and to feel like a human being again, acid reflux is not a joke.

Wishing everybody on this journey the best wishes and results.

Had RNY surgery on the exact same day. My surgery took twice as long as expected but I'm home now.

Dealing primarily with discomfort, hoping it approves substantially within the next week..

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:
      https://www.yourbariatricsurgeryguide.com/panniculectomy/ https://www.healthline.com/health/panniculectomy https://www.yourplasticsurgeryguide.com/tummy-tuck/panniculectomy/ https://www.plasticsurgery.org/reconstructive-procedures/panniculectomy/safety https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK499822/ I hope you find this information helpful. I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
