Almost SURGERY day :) YAAY



Recommended Posts


Tuesday I had my Pre-admitting appointment where I will be having my surgery and when they handed me my folder of information for surgery day with the soap and the breathing device, made everything more real. Can’t believe I only have 2 weeks and 2 days till Surgery Day!! I will be having my Pre-op Office visit with my surgeon on the 12th (anyone know what happens at the pre-op office visits?). 

I know the next two weeks will be going by fast .

They pretty much they ask you if you have any questions.. they tell you who will be attending the surgery with your doctor..
Blood test and they tell you what you can and can't do a week before your date...
I just had my pre-op 7-30-2019
I go under 8-2-19

They had me sign consent forms and go get blood work. He asked if I had any questions. Congrats on your upcoming surgery! It's an exciting time!

I had my preop class 4hrs and preop visit with surgeon immediately afterwards today.
Exactly what Big_ange said. Questions answered. Once again review preop and post OP expectations and medicines. Discuss surgery day and what to expect. Discuss pain management both meds and alternatives. I'd done labs, xrays and ekg a month ago, just reviewed it again.
No preop diet for my surgical team. Exactly 14 more days to go. [emoji114][emoji114][emoji114][emoji114][emoji169][emoji169][emoji169][emoji169]

The soap is to disinfect and the breathing device is for after surgery to help taking in deep breaths and
“ An incentive spirometer is a device used to help you keep your lungs healthy after surgery or when you have a lung illness, such as pneumonia. Using the incentive spirometer teaches you how to take slow deep breaths.”

Three days after mine. Other than all of the medicine they gave me to take to keep the stomach coated and stop reflux the only thing I've eaten is pop cycles. I bought the Outshine no sugar added. They are fruit bars as I can't tolerate sugar-free stuff. They are wonderful and my best friend to take away the taste of the medicine.

The soap is to disinfect the night before surgery & if there is any soap left, shower with it the day of surgery to make sure you are clean b4 leaving to go to hospital.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
