I’m so sorry to hear about the cancellation. I know you are bummed. Sending positive vibes your way! I hope this mess is over soon so all of you who have been postponed can move ahead with your surgeries. In the meantime, you can indeed stay on your journey and prepare more for even better success!! My surgery was postponed almost two months and looking back now I see it was a blessing in disguise. I used that time to really prepare myself for this and get even healthier before surgery. Wishing you well on your continued journey ❤️

Ive had sort of the same thing happen for surgery on my foot. My thoughts are to take the same pre-surgery steps but just a little bit longer. For my foot, it's still getting out there walking, but for WLS it might be working on a 1500-2000 calorie diet. There are so many things we can do given the right mindset. Ive seen so many people out walking recently and even the New York Times has mentioned an upswing in people running.

I'm so sorry you have to wait longer, BUT....on the UP side, you have more time to lose weight before surgery on the "shrink the liver" diet. I'm told that doing this makes the surgeon's job easier....and that of course is a good thing.

So sorry to hear that. I can't imagine how disappointed you must be. Hang in there, though, and hopefully you will resume your journey soon!

I was due to have my gallbladder removed today, and it got cancelled at 3.15pm yesterday. I was upset for a while, although I understood that coronavirus patients had to be prioritised.

On the plus side, I had to do a liver shrinking diet for 5 days, and I lost 5 lbs. 😊

GOOD FOR YOU!!

I found that before my surgery and being on the "Shrink Your Liver" diet I lost weight faster than I am now post-surgery. Go figure!!

Me too! But my bari-team assures me that is perfectly normal, and the average weight loss post surgery is about 10 lbs a month.

10 pounds a month I could do without surgery. BUT I guess the difference is that the surgery won't LET you go off your diet without suffering for it.

Best

The second liver-shrinking diet has done me a favour, because my weight loss had sort of bottomed-out, 19 months after the sleeve. It's a boost in troubled times!

      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!

        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!
