December 8th, 2020 Gastric Bypass surgery for me. Long road to get here. I'm confident about surgery and recovery, but really worried about emotional self-control later, especially when the novelty wears off. I'm already working with a therapist (who is actually 5 yrs. post-VSG - a happy accident that she was thee one who had an opening) and my program (Kaiser of Washington) offers really good support.

Looking forward walking this journey with other Nov.-Jan. compatriots. :)

I have a gastric sleeve being performed on December 14th. That is if I don't get Covid. Someone sick sat next to me, both of us masked, but I didn't know he was sick. He got tested the next day and has Covid. So praying I don't get symptoms and I can take my preop COVID test and be all good on the 9th for my surgery on the 14th. All this on top of the fact that I was about finished with all of my tests right before everything was shut down the first time because of COVID.

Fingers crossed for you!!!

I’m scheduled for revision surgery on December 8. I’ve had two failed bands and a sleeve. Going for bypass. I’m nervous and excited.

I'm the 8th too! So glad to find someone else. :)

Twins! I love it!

Yes, RNY Gastric bypass. Kaiser insurance paid. Expect 2 nights in hospital.

Yes, on a modified liquid diet for a week today. 2 shakes or bars, 2 fruits as Snacks (yeah, it seems like a lot to me too), 1 veg, and "a sensible dinner" (LOL) of 4oz. Protein, 1 tsp. fat, 1 serving starch, and at least one serving of veggies. To clarify, this my program's plan, I did not modify it unilaterally. :)

We are actually allowed to eat as many non-starchy veggies as we want in order to feel full, with caveats about head hunger and not adding butter or caloric sauces.

Day before surgery - Clear Liquids

Thanks for reaching out! It is nice to have a buddy!

Your diet sounds so much better than mine. I am allowed three shakes, a non fat plain yogurt and a bariatric pudding a day. I spoke to the nutritionist this morning and she told me I can have a hard boiled egg! I’ve never been so excited for an egg before!

Mine is Monday!! I am excited with a healthy mix of trepidation!

I wish you all the best. I can't wait to find out my surgery date. I was told that they will inform me this week. I will see? Keep us posted, and you'll do great.
