The nerves are setting in



Recommended Posts

I am 9 days away from surgery. Did anyone feel panicky? I’ve been pretty calm about the procedure up until now. Did this happen to everyone? Was anyone second guessing themselves? Help me 😩

Yes!! I’ve been pretty chill about the whole thing, up until the last couple days. I feel like I’m second guessing myself!

Yes, I felt the same way. It was a 15 month process with me from my first consultation to my surgery. Even the day before I was thinking "this is nuts, why am I doing this" but I'm so glad I went through with it.

YOU WON"T BE SORRY STAY THE COURSE!

being nervous before surgeries is REALLY common. I've freaked out before every surgery I've ever had....

I have 2 days left and I'm excited. Can't even sleep because I've been hyping myself up all night. I'm sure I'll be nervous when I'm laying down being carted into the surgery room though. The people that got their surgery before the pandemic are so lucky they got to have family members and friends with them before they got to go in. They won't even let my family past the main entrance.

It was pretty nerve wrecking mostly because my husband was not allowed to come into the hospital at all, but once you start going through the prep you'll be ok. Just remember why you decided to do it in the first place. Good luck [emoji16]

I definitely did. On Tuesday last week I found out they moved my date up to this past Monday (7/13) so that day I began feeling nervous and questioning myself!

I was excited and nervous and second-guessing myself up thru the time I saw the surgeon the morning of surgery. I even asked him if he thought I was doing the right thing right before they rolled me in! I'm 6 weeks post-op - and no real regrets yet!

I go in tomorrow for my surgery. Nervous, Nervous, Nervous and trying to pass the time and keep my mind busy, because it's nothing but fluids today. My husband will be about to enter with me and meet me at recovery, but not allowed once I get a room. This replies are helping me out, like you can't believe.

Yes it is! I wasn’t sure about if and when I would sip too much.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
