December 2019 Sleeves



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I was just approved for VSG. I’m waiting on a call back from my surgeon with the official surgery date. I am looking to have it done the second weeks of December. I am so nervous and scared and excited!!! I also keep second guessing myself and thinking if I’ll chicken out and just not do it. I really really really want this done because at this point there is nothing I have not tried to loose the weight. I am scared of failing I guess. I’ve lost almost 20lbs since I began my appts to get this done. I am on a daily injection to suppress my appetite which was a big contributor.

If you are a fellow December surgery let’s lean on each other throughout our recovery!

Hi hi.. mine is on December 1.. I'm pretty nervous about it and got pre-OP anxiety .. I'm very afraid of general anaesthesia ..eventhough deep down I know it's nothing.. like everyone has been telling me It's like dreaming.. and I am afraid of pain and complications too .. like gallbladder stones.. I mean I'm only 24.. well ,soon to be 25 lolol (my bd is on december too😁) just thinking about removing my GB at such young age scares me a lot...but overall I think it's worth it ; to have a healthy body and dress pretty too, not just some oversized sh..t😅 plus no more of those people judging you when you pass🤦

If you think about the results it's worth it... that's what I'm telling my self too🤓

hope it goes well for all of us😍

December 9th and I'd love to stay in touch. Today I got my nutrition book and checklist. I am super uber excited.

I also got some pretty nice Gastric Sleeve cookbooks on Kindle for like $2.99

Let's do this!

I also created a blog. I was banded in 2009 and unbanded in 2012 so it's going to be interesting to compare the two.

I won’t lie. Those first few weeks were hard. Like really hard. But I followed all the rules. And it seems like ages ago. Those early days will creep along but play by the rules as much as you possibly can and you will be amazed at the progress. Good luck!

Can you elaborate what the hardest part was? Was it pain wise or the liquids/food

I’m 12/20! Merry Christmas to me lol

Yay congrats! We will be having surgery the same week! I’m nervous it being right before the holiday. I have 3 kids and I don’t want to spoil their Xmas if I’m not feeling well. I feel most nervous about my immediate post op recovery.

Sure:) I healed well and have a pretty good tolerance for pain so pain wasn’t an issue at all. I felt great after the first week and was off my pain meds. I was hungry and wanted to eat real food, not liquids. I also have a family of boys who ate what they wanted as normal in front of me. I’m not someone who expected or asked anyone to modify their behavior in support of me so everyone will have a different opinion on this. I didn’t expect to feel hungry so soon so I never asked them to be mindful. I was grouchy and irritated and sometimes even felt sad or somewhat “left out”. I’m a huge joker so I made fun of my sad options like a shake or broth while they would have pizza or whatever. I also didn’t do much cooking at all because it was super hard. Smelling real food made me insane. Once I got to solid foods it was downhill and much easier. I follow Protein first rule. No carbonation. Drink my water/liquids. And usually only choose the healthiest options. Plus I avoid carbs. I do have a bite of them here and there so I don’t fall off the wagon and binge carby junk but my diet is quite different now. And I’m very satisfied. I’ve adjusted to this lifestyle and am very happy with it. Plus the results have reinforced my choices so it’s helped keep me on track. I’m happy for you! Best of luck

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
