IWANTTHEDREAM take a deep breathe ....the shake idea was good. I am about to have one myself. We are here for you. Whats your plan for today? Eating fluids.are you able just to stand and step side to side ? I can do it with you it with you.Let me know


Thank you so much your great! I am going to do shakes today and I have work and I figure I’ll do some laps around the desks today and I’ll be there alone so at least I won’t look crazy and then another walk with my daughter in the evening. I just don’t think I will loose much overnight. But my insurance already approved so I’m hoping he will be fine. He’s not a mean dr so it is what it is right.

My new date is July 17th. I am having a revision from the sleeve to the RNY due to Barrett’s Esophagus. May we all do exceptionally well!!!!

Did you have Barrett’s before you had the sleeve done? Because I have a very small area with it but they are doing the sleeve on me anyway? I want the sleeve but have wondered if it’s should have been bypass.

I used to live right over the bridge from your town OMG who is your doctor? We may have the same one. Dr Borao is mine.

IWantTheDream.. I did not have Barrett’s before the sleeve. I had GERD and it went away for about the first 3 years after surgery. Then it slowly came back and turned into Barrett’s even while on Omeprazole everyday the whole time. It got so bad that I was sleeping in a recliner. My Dr added Carafate before bed at night and that helps. But my goal is to stop the Barrett’s from progressing into cancer now. If you have reflux or GERD do your research and talk to your doctor. And yes, we live very close to one another! I switched doctors for this surgery. I used to use one in East Brunswick and now I am using Dr Sadek , he is the chief of Bariatric surgery at Robert Wood Johnson in New Brunswick. I know Dr Borao is spoken highly of so you’re in good hands! 🤗

I am really glad I started my 3-month medically-supervised weight loss before the lockdown. Normally, I almost certainly would have gained weight working from home (right down the hall from my kitchen), but instead, I have lost over 40 pounds in the last 3 months. I have been doing intermittent fasting (16 hours/day) and I just don't even go in the kitchen until lunch.

Yeah I’m very excited and really nervous all at the same time. This kinda feels like my first time going to Universal Orlando for Halloween Horror Nights ya know scary n exciting and nerve racking all at the same time. Lol

This is such good news!! my surgeons nurse told me since i'm already approved that weight gain isn't an issue for them. I was stressing over this 6 lb gain since corona-tine. When do you start your pre-op liver shrink diet? I have my pre-op appt on 6/30. It is very nerve wrecking for me at this point. They also did a switcharoo of surgeons on me too. not that I mind but I haven't met this surgeon yet..SO lots of nerves here too

Hi everyone! i'm brand new to this site. As of today, my vsg is officially booked for july 20!!!!! so nervous and excited. i have chosen not to tell many people aside from immediate family and one close friend. i'm not ashamed its just a private matter and i think its a big enough surgery and emotional/physcial roller coaster I don't want nay negative comments etc.

Well, I was slated to have surgery today but it got postponed because of my cardiologist wanting me to see a congenital cardiologist about my heart. I got cleared, but my new date is July 8th.

I was on the liquid diet for 5 days when they postponed it (ughhhhhhh) but I know that I can do it and stocked up on broths and Popsicle. I found that Jello got kinda gross, kind quickly. If anyone is looking for different broths, Target has some Swanson's sipping broths that have different flavors (Ginger & Tumeric chicken and Lemon & Rosemary chicken) which have 9 grams of protein.. They're completely clear and delicious.
