Prayers, hugs, well wishes and I'm putting success in the universe that you are all going to do amazing tomorrow. Don't be anxious, they will give you meds to quell your nerves and take your anxiety away. Think of it as a nice little nap 😴😴😴, lol. I'm trying to make you all laugh. I don't know if it's working or not.

I see your still up also. I can't sleep. 4:30 CST is coming up soon, shower, brush my teeth, mouthwash, start a fire in the wood stove, set the thermostat to 65, make my wife some coffee, and then wake sleeping beauty up and put the coffee cup in her hand. Get dressed, and head out. Surgery time of 7:30. Get sliced and diced and hopefully back home by Wednesday or Thursday. I hope your surgery goes well.

sleeping beauty, lol. Sliced and diced, lmaooooo. I'm exactly a month away, but my nerves are crazy, because 4 weeks goes by quickly. I'm very encouraging to others, internally I'm a little afraid of the unknown and not being properly prepared. Which is why I'm distracting myself with checking on all of you every 5 seconds like a nervous hen, lol.

Try to make sure to have your basics in liquids or chews (no gummies); calcium citrate, a good recommend Multivitamin with Iron like BariatricPals ( taste better), B12 1000mcg or 5000mcg fast dissolve sublingual, I also am going to be taking extra Vitamin C for the first 2 months while healing as my immune system may get be weakened from the surgery. I would recommend you put back some money for possibly a different whey Protein Isolate source due to your taste may change after surgery. Me personally just got a fresh tasting unflavored whey protein Isolate so I can make it taste the way I want it to. I will recommend Now Sports nutrition whey protein Isolate unflavored. Been using some from a 5lb container that has 81 servings in it for 2 weeks now. Ordered another one this time a 10lb bag that arrived today. If I missed anything or misspoke per say then other fine folks on here will help you. Good luck. My rny bypass is in about 6 hrs and 20 mins now. Tick tock, tick tock, tock........

Thank you for the information as well, very appreciated for the Protein information. I have plenty of bariatric Vitamins, I went to a Obesity conference and was given so many freebies. I also had purchased a two month supply to get started.

No, I'm not sleeping with the snoring beauty and her even louder snoring little piglet of a dog! I came out to the living room that is around 35 ft from the bed and still here both of them. I think the piglet has sleep apnea and needs a CPAP. Otherwise it's a very common theme around here. I'm going to turn on the radio and listen to some 70s music excluding disco ( sorry fans) and hopefully fall asleep watching the flames dance in the wood stove. Thank you for the concern. P.S. with how the beauty is rip roaring back there I would think the music can get pretty loud with no problems. Fleetwood Mac Rianna playing right now. NICE!

I actually slept last night which was a nice surprise, but I'm up and have 2 hours to kill before I need to leave for the hospital and the nerves are really settled in nicely. I can actually feel my heart beating faster than normal.

I was doing okay until I got to the hospital. Now I've been sitting in pre-OP for 2 hours getting more nervous. By tonight we'll be on the road to a new us!

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

      3. biginjapan

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
