New date for my VGS! 7/22/19



Recommended Posts

My original date of June 17 had to be cancelled because I failed my stress test, which in turn caused the surgery to be postponed. Everything’s OK now & I officially have a new date! July 22nd awaits! I’m excited, nervous & pumped all at once. The countdown begins!

I'm glad they were cautious and checked you out prior to surgery. Good luck on your WLS journey.

Hi Kathaleen, I am scheduled for July 22, 2019 also I am going to Nevada a place called Blossom Bariatrics. Well actually my stress test is the 22nd and my surgery is 7/24/19. I hope to God I don't fail my stress test . I was told if I could walk on a treadmill for 20 minutes without chest pains I should be fine. But I start my liquid diet on July 8, they recommend 14 days prior.

Hey, Sleeve Sister! My doctor isn’t as strict on the liquid diet 2 week pre-op as others. He said that I should avoid carbs- cut out the Pasta, bread, etc... you know, the “good” stuff. LOL! He allows soft foods, yogurt, scrambled eggs, etc. I’ll probably do what I did before my date was changes. Do the soft food thing for a week & switch to all liquid for the final week.

I am doing GREAT!! I wished I had listened to my doctor who had been urging me to have the surgery two years ago!!

My surgery was 7 weeks ago today. So far, I have lost a little over 50 pounds. I am not feeling hungry, which makes it SO much easier.

How did surgery go for you? I am scheduled there in 2 weeks.

The surgery went very well. I was sore afterward, but not in actual pain. They gave me a prescription for a pain killer, but I only used them the 1st 2 nights at home. After that, I didn't need them.

I spent 1 night in the hospital.

Mom -surgery

Tues - home

Wed - rested.

Thurs - I was driving around - just another normal day. LOL!

I had surgery 7/24/19 with Blossom Bariatric in Nevada. It was smooth for me no pain, no discomfort, no nausea, no vomitting 2 days after my procedure I flew home. So far I'm down 35lbs but in the last week i hit a stall. After surgery I was a little tired it lasted about 2 weeks now i do Zumba 3 days per week and I walk (3 miles ) 3 days per week. The best decision I could have made

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
