I was scheduled to have my surgery in April, but due to the pandemic it was postponed. But I just got my date, October 13th :D

Looking for my fellow autumnal surgery buddies :290_fallen_leaf::291_maple_leaf:

I had mine October 5th. Gastric bypass.

Morning everyone I had my sleeve yesterday 10/13 and I’m currently in hospital. Gassy and nauseated are my main symptoms . Besides that my pain is not as bad just being managed. I have to walk around today. I couldn’t do it last night .

Hi everyone! I am having gastric sleeve on October 27. I have been thanking God that I was approved as I had a lap band that was removed due to medical issues. I am so so happy but honestly I keep seeing myself eating a 1/4 cup of food the first month and it scores the crap out of me lol anyone else?

Hi there! Don’t stress about the amount of food. You probably won’t be hungry anyway.

For the nausea they gave me meds , the gas I had to pass it on my own. They tried to promote walking but I couldn’t yesterday

my liquid intake is pretty low the goal is 400 ml before I leave and I only have 60. The nausea is making it hard to drink but it’s not that bad today

if I don’t meet goal l have to stay another night

Hope you meet the goal and the nausea reduces for you.

That's awesome you made a few laps and were able to tolerate more liquid. Hope you're able to go home tonight but if not, you're where you're supposed to be.

I'll join the club - like others, I was literally set to fly out in the middle of March for the gastric sleeve but had to cancel because of the crazy Covid. Was so sad since I was literally one day away from the flight and all of the pre-op diet prep. But it was definitely for the best.

I'm now scheduled for October 28th! Flying out in less than 2 weeks.

On day 2 of the pre-op diet and it's going ok. I find it practically impossible to drink 64 oz of Water though. I feel like i'm drinking non-stop and I still can't get it all down. I'll keep working on it!

To me it's still not really "real" yet, but definitely will be once I prep to go to the airport!

I've been struggling with the Water as well. Hang in there! You can do it!
