Recommended Posts

I will be having surgery 12/13/19 :) As it's getting closer, I'm getting more nervous. I will be having my surgery at Lake Norman Regional Medical Center in Mooresville NC. Dr. Brendan Marr is my surgeon :) Any tips on how to not be so nervous, so I can get some sleep lol[emoji23] [emoji16]

Surgery is 12/16! Good luck! No tips on the nervousness besides deep breaths lol my mind is wondering and I’m getting a little anxious. Ready to get this done so I can start healing, the anticipation has been bothering me a little bit lol.

One more day, you got this!!

We all have been there - I doubt any person here was not nervous about it - But as you see very risk free surgery and my suggestion is for you to get all your education and plans in order. Read my long post how i Screwed up being not prepared.

Enjoy the ride and this is a great decision to make

AJ, how and where do I find your list? I'm a newbie here. I think experience is invaluable, so if you can tell me where to look, I'd appreciate it.

Calling Fluffy Fluffy where is your post on Pre Surgery Prep SHe will post it shortly

You need three things

1. Protein Drinks, Vitamins and Minerals - See below my set up - Way over kill but thats how i roll

2. You will be on liquids for about 2 weeks so Bone Broth, and other liquids -

4. F#$Ck food - Do not even bother with that right now, Learn how to make pureed and smoothies

Ok I am a chef so i went overboard but the Protein Shakes are the key -

Jess, what has helped for me is not focusing on the scary parts, but reminding myself of the health gains - that if I stay this way, I am doing more damage to my health. Sometimes, there IS no real solution to the anxiety (other than valium before surgery) but trying to shift perspective can help.

I hear ya, though. Stay positive! Good luck.

      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.
