Hi guys surgery went well on the 15th. Came home on the 16th. On the 17th took shower and sister assisted me with pullonh on the new dressing. Well she accidentally cut my drainage cord. So i had to go into the dr office and he just removed the port. That was the must painful feeling after. Feels like a baby head is being pulled out of a belly. Then the biggest gas bubble pasted. So now I dont have to go in to get it removed. So gave it a early dr visit.

Thank you so much. I've been rock solid throughout my entire journey but I'm getting a bit nervous now.

Thinking of you, @NancyLF and @Jackie Escalera tonight! Best wishes for smooth sailing, ladies!

This is me TODAY. This is my 2nd round of pre-op as I made a last minute change that impacted surgery date - went from 7/1 to 7/25. I've found pre-op ODDLY much harder this 2nd time around. The 1st time i did it a month back, I got to Day 13 and it wasn't as hard as I anticipated. I seemed to be able to get by with even less calories than 'allotted' (while staying within the limits of what I was allowed).

This time...I'm HUNGRY/HANGRY..I find myself tearing up out of the blue ...feeling sad and missing my parents and having difficulty interacting with my family (we are all 'Type A' but I've learned in recent years as I got older to be much more laid back). I'm so confused.

The 1st round of pre-op I average about a lb a day weight loss. This time I'm on Day...um..18 and I've lost about 3 or 4 lbs. That's why I'm scared that my liver isn't shrinking enough. I made myself start logging things the other day when I was worried I was maybe still getting in above 800 calories - maybe an xtra Protein Shake I wasn't recalling.

Well good luck this week! I don’t know if I could have done that long of a pre-op! I had my band put in Friday, and I’m still Clear Liquids. I’m really excited to get to the Soup stage! Oh, and my liver appeared in the after pics to be pretty good! I also had a pretty significant hiatal hernia that had to be repaired, so my pain level is higher than expected. :(

Well, I am July 31 - RNY and Pouch revision or "tune up", as I like to call it. I was worried that I would be too late for the July group, so I was also going to follow with the August group. My pre op appointment is July 29th where the Internist will review my test results before giving the final go-ahead for the 31st. I am doing well on the pre-op diet, and have lost about 10 pounds in the past month total. My tests show a fatty liver so I am really following the protocol closely.

So if it is not too late, Please include me. I have met all the requirements for surgery already, in terms of test results so I am pretty sure it will be a go ahead.

I really would like to be involved in the post surgery followup, to see how you are all doing!

Hi, I’m one week into my pre op liquid diet and I’m already down 9lbs. Three Protein Shakes a day and lots and lots of Water. The liquid diet is not as bad as I feared, I think staying super busy house shopping has helped. I haven’t had the time to miss food, lol. My surgery is July 31st. I cannot wait, I’m nervous yet very excited!!! So many new things in store for me 💕
