Nice! I’m glad To hear that you are doing great. Thank you for your update and your encouragement. Can I ask after the surgery were you able to lay in your bed? And How much did you lose after one month?

Hi there!

i know what you mean! Last weekend I was so nervous and weepy. This week I have been on edge... now I am excited for a new life. But still it is surgery and so much to go thru... makes me get nervous again. It’s a roller coaster.

I hope you find a way to calm yourself.

I love knowing someone else is going through this on the 8th. Hope we keep in touch.

I slept in my bed immediately once home but it did hurt to initially lay down or stand up. For about 1.5 weeks i would have to push through that when getting in or out of the bed. it feels like ur stomach is sewn too tight and u get a sharp pain that lasted about 1-2minutes then it goes away...at least that was my experience..same thing when i tried to sleep on my sides..felt like the stomach was sewn too tight inside and so i slept flat on my back for 2 weeks. Most ppl use recliners i think but i knew id feel even worse without good sleep so i just pushed through the temporary pain to get hours of good sleep in bed. Im 41 days post op now and have lost 27 lbs...my stats are: 5'6" hw:252, sw:242, cw:215. I lost ten lbs on the 2day liquid diet prior to surgery, so I'm used to telling ppl I've lost 37 since then but it's 27lbs post-op. The 27lb post op weightloss includes one week where i stalled out and another where i gained 2 lbs just fyi..it was very discouraging when that happened after watching the numbers drop consistently so i just wanted to warn u in case this happens to u. Doc says its normal;)

I’m 8th. Hope not rescheduled bc I forgot take shake today & got so dizzy almost fainted twice so Daughter gave me half cup of rice with bit of spicy sauce & hard boiled egg. Had only 1 of 5 shakes allowed today & 3 of 5 shakes yesterday & will try tomorrow to only have 1or 2. I’ll tell surgery nurse Bc His Nurse was gonna tell Dr. I had a 1 sugar free Gatorade & 3 mints for my breath on day 2 so I told her to tell him I thought he was very handsome first. She laughed. This is 2nd time For 2 week pre diet bc cancelled bc covid. It’s a blessing as I got blocked up that night in extreme pain so am taking Metamucil. Hope it works. May everyone have great success!

Thank you! I will keep that in mind about sleeping on my bed if not I do you have a recliner at home I can try that too. And wow you lost 27 pounds that is amazing. I am in my pre-op diet stage right now. One more week to go 😬

I think so! Just hoping the pain is controllable and the surgery is smooth.

Thank you so much!
