It sounds like you might benefit from talking to a therapist that specializes in bariatric patients. One thing the surgery won't do is prevent you from eating the "worst food." You will still be able to eat unhealthy food with your sleeve. If I get hungry during the night I drink almond milk because it's filling and low calorie. To lose weight, sleeve or no, you will need to eat a healthy, low-calorie diet.


I think as long as I keep something healthy I can grab I’ll be find and I love almond mild too 💗

Surgery is just a tool and won't help you with the head hunger or choosing wrong foods to eat or night eating. Have you thought about going to the group therapy classes offered by your surgeon's office? The head hunger is more of a battle than physical hunger.


Yes the last time I tried for surgery I did the group therapy and it was wonderful and I plan and going again

I’m feeling less than stellar. The gas pains and pressure are awful. But happy to be on this side of it all!

I'm sorry the gas pains are showing their ugly faces :( what all did they have you do after you showed up to admissions?

I was pre-registered, so I literally showed up to the surgery waiting room and went back to get prepped 30 min later!

Today is actually worse for me. Didn’t get to go home. I’ve been walking constantly and still feel the most bloated I’ve ever felt. I have been sipping my fluids and tonight tried some Protein and the shake feels like it is stuck in my stomach. Still full two hours later and only got 6 ounces in. Here’s to trying to stay positive and feeling better tomorrow!

I'm sure in a few months this will just be a blip on the radar compared to how great you are going to feel :)

I wasn’t worried during the whole three year process of trying to get it done. A week before my surgery I lost my mind and was all of a sudden scared that I might die in surgery(literally hit me like a brick wall). My mom(who also had gastric bypass had the same dr as me) told me it’s like taking a bandaid off for them. I even looked up the chances of death(I thought it was stupid of me but it oddly made me feel better) and you have a higher chance of dying from gallbladder or hip surgery. I was so scared I even watched a video of the surgery being performed to see what might go wrong. My mom said I was crazy but they did it with ease and it made me feel better 😂

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      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.
