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 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
