Doing good on Optifast liquid and counting down to August 28 surgery date. At present doing well with Bari melts Vitamins, and liquids including 48 oz no sugar, no calories along with Optifast shakes. First 2 days was rough, however on the 3rd day till now all is good. Anxious and nervous as I count down on the days. Next week Friday is surgery day.

That is quite possible especially if you had sugar issues. I would wait at least 90 days as long as nothing major before going to an eye doctor for new glasses. If it seems to be a bigger issue definitely get that checked out. I know my moms glasses needs changed greatly after surgery

It turns out it was the anti nausea patch I wore behind my ear for the surgery. The nurse called me 2 days after going home to check on me. She confirmed that vision would return to normal a few days after removing the patch. And it did!

August 4th for this girl. Conversion from sleeve to RYN, with large type III hernia repair. Everything went great. I feel great but have lots of limitations until hernia repair heals. Doing 3-4 walks a day. Best part... I am getting out of vacuuming and scooping cat boxes for a few more weeks! :) Dr’s orders.

Hi! Surgery went well, no surprises or anything unexpected according to my surgeon. The gas pain is finally better today as I was able to expel some and I walked a lot to get it moving around. I still get bouts of nausea and cramps that last 2-4 seconds when I drink something but they said it’s normal. I will admit, forcing myself to drink is so difficult. I also admit that I get bouts of “buyers remorse” but I know it’s because I’m stressed about the nausea and struggling to have an appetite to reach my Fluid and Protein intake. I’m just trying to take this day-by-day.

Glad your surgery went well. I broke down crying my second day in the hospital due to a bad reaction to the anesthesia. I was puking and dry heaving and all I wanted was ginger ale to settle my stomach but I wasn’t allowed. Things did get better and just remember to take it one day at a time.
