So I’m a week and 2 days away from getting my surgery. I’m really nervous. I’m nervous for only having 1000 calories a day, I’m nervous for going to Mexico by myself. I’m nervous for the surgery in general. Can someone out there calm my nerves!!??😞

Hi, who is your surgeon in Mexico? I went to dr illan and it was the best experience of my life! I had the sleeve with him two years ago and am going back for a MGB revision in three weeks. I was treated better in Mexico then I ever was in America and it was more like a vacation then surgery! They treat you like a queen there!

Qbaby08 you will do great! I was scared and nervous the week before my surgery too. I kept thinking bad thoughts and over thinking what will happen and got cold feet thinking if i should go through with it. Dont worry i just had my sleeve done may 31st and its finally easier. First 2 days sucked for me and were awful no lie gas got stuck in my chest for days and nurses kept saying to walk as much as possible and sip Water to try to get the gas out. Found everytime i had there nausea medication it made me dry heave and id actually burp a bunch in stead Anyways first 2 days were horrible But got easier after that and now im a week post op and im finally able to sleep on my side and hold my kiddos and do alot of things. Some docters say drink a certain amount of calories but mine didnt he said the number 1 thing in the first 2 weeks after ur surgery is getting hydrated so water, water, water i have to put crystal light with my water to get 60oz a day. My doctor said dont worry about Protein right now just water. So now i drink lots of water and about 2oz low sodium chicken and beef broth at different times a day and maybe only 2oz of Protein Drink from costco and im doing great. Just be carful to not over strain or over do it in anyway like picking heavy things up.

You will be a whole new person next year and u should be so excited. Im happy for you! Everone that i ran in to before surgery that had the sleeve done said to me they wished they did it sooner in life rather than waiting cause they were scared. You got this!!!

Nycgal000 that is my surgeon. I’m scared more so that I’m going by myself. I’m doing the liquid diet right now and feel like hitting a brick wall haha

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
