Had surgery today, feeling great!



Recommended Posts

I’m sorry for my scattered thoughts, currently doped up a tad bit!

I know everyone’s experience is different, but I wanted to share my thoughts (especially for those that are worried about the surgery!)

I have never had surgery prior to this VSG, and also suffer from pretty severe anxiety and was so so worried about getting an IV, pain, being nauseous, staying in the hospital alone, etc. I just wanted to share that my surgery went great!! I have minimal pain and nausea and feel pretty darn good. I’m so excited for this life changing opportunity.

To those of you in the preop stages of wls, please don’t let anxiety or fears hold you back from changing your life!! As much as I wanted this surgery, I contemplated cancelling it almost daily due to fear. As mentioned, everyone’s experience is different, but don’t let the “what if’s” hold you back!

Thank you so much for sharing this! Its like you crawled right into my head to show who I am and the fears that I have!

I was supposed to complete the process in the spring and then covid intervened so I'm back to planning now and will hopefully have vsg in March. I'm so afraid of the pain and my anxiety is through the roof. I keep telling myself that it won't be as bad as I imagine (thats the anxiety talking!) and that it will all be worth it in the end!

I hope that you are continuing to heal and are having success!
