I found out yesterday that my sleeve procedure will be on Sept. 29th. I am excited about to outcome, but beyond nervous about the surgery itself.

Isn't it just AWFUL?! I am half way through. I think most people are fine after day three, unfortunately, I am still hungry😢 and I have had a constant headache from caffeine withdrawal. I keep thinking about hard boiled eggs and plums. I don't even LIKE eggs! Six more days to go...we can do this!


How come we can’t have caffeine on the liquid diet? I’m 3 days on liquid diet & a horrible headache just started. How long does it usually last? I got really sick in the hot sun securing everything for Hurricane Laura, then anxiety as it became a category 4. Not having coffee is harder for me than all liquid diet (for now). Excited & scared for the 8th! Glad I found y’all to talk about our surgeries. Good luck on yours!

I assume you are pre-op? I guess it may be considered an appetite stimulant but perhaps they are weaning you off it pre -op rather than post-op, you will have a lot to contend with immediate post-op, you won't want to deal with withdrawal then. Caffeine will likely irritate the new stomach as it stimulates stomach acid production.

September 10th here! I'm celebrating my (September) birthday this weekend since I'll be a couple of days post-op on my actual birthday.

Good luck everyone!

I knowwww. I am just so head hungry. I have had all my Protein and now I just wish I could go to bed so I’m not around food but...kids. Sigh. I may sneak a lean chicken breast for dinner tomorrow night and some steamed broccoli.

@MagentaMom great! We’re surgery siblings now! You’re the ONLY person I’ve seen with our date🎉🎉🎉 I thought I’d never get a surgery sis 😂 . I’m going after labor day and my Son’s birthday so that I can enjoy the festivities. Maybe one last ice cream cone😆 I heard it makes you nauseous after vsg and ice cream is my favorite! Im looking forward to healthier favorites after surgery.

where are you having your surgery done?

I’m having a sleeve done on September 10th in Mexico. My pre-op starts today. Does anyone have a nicotine problem? How are you coping before surgery and post surgery?

@MagentaMom

My surgery is the same day and my birthday is in September also. (9/22) Unfortunately wasn’t able to Celebrate it before I started the pre-op diet because they called me to tell me the date and I had to start the diet the next day.

Good luck to you!
