I think you can be confident that the hospital is going to be taking all possible measures to ensure that the risk of infection is close to zero. They definitely know how to disinfect and take other necessary precautions.

There is absolutely zero way to disinfect the hospital completely. If you don't think that's true, then why is MRSA contracted in hospitals continually an issue?

I agree. We all need to make our own choices based on weighing the risks and benefits. Personally, I would not hesitate to go ahead with surgery in the current environment.

I agree. But I would be worried about it. Straight up. No lie. LOL.

No way this is your tool and you did it - Take the risk and get on the journey!

But this may help

you're going to get different answers from different folks! I would go ahead with it, but then I'm not all that worried about getting the virus myself (I'm pretty healthy and would likely have a mild case if/when I got it). But if you're not comfortable with the idea, then I'm sure you're not the only person to postpone a surgery in this current climate..

My surgery is next Wednesday and I will be travelling to another state for it. I am not inclined to cancel but that may be taken out of my hands if the hospital cancels 'elective' surgery. Some hospitals have cancelled upcoming surgeries already but they are public hospitals not private. As long as my surgeon and hospital staff remain virus free (me too of course) I will be going ahead with it.

*note I am in Australia.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
