Just had my surgery on Monday February 3rd. Not so bad. Just sore and need to heal. Can’t drink a lot as before for it will come back up. Taking liquid pain relief and some kind of products for input now. Good luck guys

Thanks for updating! Are you still in the hospital? If I remember correctly you had surgery in Mexico, right? Hope you are convalescing a bit before you have to travel. Good luck!!

I was scheduled for 22nd. I had my pre-op Testing on Monday. And I got a call yesterday moving my surgery date up to19th. Things are starting to move fast. I start my liquid diet today but decided to go ahead and have Breakfast. I had cream chip beef on toast and a couple of poached eggs along with a grapefruit. Was delicious. Now comes the hard part. But let the journey begin.

@DB in AZ that’s awesome! I’m scheduled for the 19th as well. I’m definitely not looking forward to the pre-op diet but it’s gonna be worth it!

Well I'm back and awake! Dr said everything went well and no pain except some gas on my left side under breast. I've walked twice to help it and just not got my first sip of Water and my tongue thanked me more than anything!

Should be discharged in the morning and off to begin my new ways

I'm glad its over, I had all types of paranoid thought, lol so uncalled for :)

good lucl this month for the rest of you!

They are keeping on a pretty good regimen of pain meds; so maybe I'll stay semi pain free!

So far they are allowing me Water to make sure I can keep things down (30Ml of water 4x an hour) mentally I know its time or passed time for food lol but this water helped my dry mouth so I'm satisfied ;)

For now lol

@JettK that’s good to hear about the pain. Do you feel like you are able to get the Water down in the time they have set for you?

Had my surgery yesterday! Everyone has been wonderful! Two more days in the hospital, and then I'm going home.

Feel a little nauseous and tender in places. On the whole I feel ok.🌞

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
