Tomorrow is the anesthesia appt (don’t think much is involved other than going over the telephone pre-op info, hope not anyway). I will have a covid test while there (for my Thursday/June 18th surgery). Also have to stop by the surgeon’s office for paperwork (thank goodness it’s next door). I work in healthcare and so Tuesday and Wednesday I work, no choice, since I am leaving people without care for 2 weeks as it is. But that’s fine, sitting around isn’t much fun anyway. So it’s here now :DRUM ROLL; surgery week!

I hope you're having a better adjustment period than I am! I've been miserably sick since I was discharged (4 days post-op). I've already been to the ED twice for fluids. I can't seem to keep anything down. Thankfully I work at the hospital and am good friends with my surgeon. Otherwise, I feel like my recovery would be much worse.

No, I'm doing good. So sorry you're having problems. I hope things get better.

Time for another update. VSG on the 12th in Nuevo Laredo with Dr Galileo Villarreal. Feeling pretty great all around. The five hour drive home yesterday was a little rough, the bumps weren’t an issue at all, just the time sitting still (with some walking breaks). Woke up this morning with left arm pain that was so bad I convinced myself I was having a heart attack... did some deep breathing exercises and walked it off and that’s gone now. Drinking fluids no problem. Not much pain any more except when I hiccup or my tube formerly referred to as a stomach contracts to empty, slight pain from the hernia repair still. All in all really happy with the outcome. Only had a 7 day preop diet starting on the 5th but I’m down 18lbs since then. Super excited about the future, can’t even imaging what I’ll look like with a skinny face :) oh and I’m already not thinking about food constantly. it’s weird.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

        So proud of you Cat. Getting into those smaller size clothes is half the fun isn't it?. Keep up the good work!!!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?

      April Surgery
      Am I the only struggling to get weight down. I started with weight of 297 and now im 280 but seem to not lose more weight. My nutrtionist told me not to worry about the pounds because I might still be losing inches. However, I do not really see much of a difference is this happen to any of you, if so any tips?
      Thanks

      Well recovering from gallbladder removal was a lot like recovering from the modified duodenal switch surgery, twice in 4 months yay 🥳😭. I'm having to battle cravings for everything i shouldn't have, on top of trying to figure out what happens after i eat something. Sigh, let me fast forward a couple of months when everyday isn't a constant battle and i can function like a normal person again! 😞

        I may have to have gall bladder surgery during my weight loss surgery. Not thrilled about it either but do not want 2 recovery times. Just want it over with.

        Thanks for your post. I may need to rethink my decision... :(
