@Puffy-no-more I have to order certain products form Protifoods.com and start that 2 weeks prior to surgery. Hope it tastes okay!

Okay that's neat. I'm just doing alot of research to figure out what I'm going to do for post op with the shakes and broths and powders and best brands and all that. There's so much out there.

I’m scheduled for
February 14th! I’m getting the sleeve, but still thinking about RNY. I don’t have much time left
To decide!

On one hand I'm glad I'm not alone with the indecision, on the other I'm sorry it's a hard decision for you too. Good luck with your decision process!

New surgery date for me 2/21. I got a call today saying there was a conflict in scheduling at the facility I'm having surgery done 🤷‍♂️ Kind of annoyed because I have an appointment with my primary doctor later today for clearance that I guess i'll have to reschedule..

Aww I’m so sorry to hear this.

you’re going to hate me for saying this, but there’s probably a reason why things had to be rescheduled. Things tend to happen for a reason (I think). And this could mean anything from something being wrong at the clinic, to something being wrong with the doctor that operating..who knows.

I kind of settled into the idea of it pretty quickly surprisingly, mostly because I haven’t over planned just yet.. so I guess we can say they caught me at a good time 😂

Nope I definitely totally agree, everything happens for a reason. I was more bothered that I had to reschedule with my primary doc only hours before my appointment than anything else. Weird right? But I guess that serves as confirmation that it was meant to be this way.

That is awful!! Is there an appeal process? A 2 pound weight gain could be anything... what you are wearing, sodium, menstrual cycle, digestive issues, holidays. So unfair.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 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!!

      2. SleeverSk

        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 .
