October 2019 surgery peeps?



Recommended Posts

Finally, I can officially join the October Peeps! I am scheduled for Tuesday Oct 22 , I am having the sleeve, as well as hernia repair. I begin my one week pre- surgery diet on Oct. 15. The surgery is considered outpatient according to BCBS/Illinois because I will only be staying overnight for observation, God willing.

As of now I am so happy and super excited. I think closer to my surgery date the nervousness, and probably fear will kick in.

Hello all, I had my surgery on 10/8 and I'm glad to report that my gastric sleeve went well. My Doctor was very happy about the outcome and how much I've been walking. Luckily I didn't have lots of pain from the gas, but it was hard to keep any Fluid down while I was in the hospital. I believe it was from all the medication I was receiving, because once I got home the nausea and vomiting stopped. I didn't have any issues swallowing any pills also. I've been taking gas x, prilosec along with the recommended Vitamins. No abdominal pain just slight discomfort from the gas and drinking fluids. I really need to work on my liquid intake, it seems impossible to get 64 ounces in when your just taking little sips, but I will find a way.

Much success to all. Let the journey begin!!

Thank you!! I know right, I love water especially when it's ice cold but now my stomach hates anything cold...except popsicles (got lucky on that one) . I have been using a water bottle the shows the oz as well. I'm going to stick with the sample meal plan /times and include my protien shakes as well.

That's what was given to me in the hospital. Today I feel much better, not much discomfort and I'm able to consume more liquids than yesterday.

Congratulations on the surgery we were a day apart. Just follow whatever plan the doctor has laid out for you and you will be fine. I have been walking allot as well, it really does help with all things. I don’t have problems with pills, hot or cold Water thank goodness. Make sure when the hospital and dietician calls you explain anything you are having difficulty with.

Hi all. One week until surgery! Hard to believe it is almost here. Just staying focused and making sure I have laid the foundation for success. Prepping my pantry and starting to organize my items for the hospital.

How are all of the October folks doing? How did your surgeries go (those who've had them)? For the rest of us in the final countdown, are you all as nervous/excited as I am? It's such a journey!
I'm not nervous, I'm just ready to have it done and over with. I'm tired of waking up every morning nauseated. Ot is so not fun.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
