Same!! I'm holding my breath waiting for something to go wrong!! I really hope we both get to our surgery dates with no issues!! The only thing I've stocked up on so far is Protein Shakes but, that's it. When do you start your pre-op?

Don’t buy too many Protein Shakes ahead of time because your tastes may change. Also immediately after tastes are heightened so to me the Protein shakes were too sweet. I found the clear Protein Drinks to be easier to get down.

Best things people told me to bring were pajama pants (forget a robe cause all the wires make that impossible) you will want to cover up when walking around and phone or iPad. I watched Netflix and played games while awake but slept a lot as well. You don’t need much more than that. Seriously. Good luck. [emoji256]
Awesome! I didn't think about the wires! Thank you!

Hmmm... not sure what you mean. I have had my final weigh in and my pre-surgical appointment. At that appointment which was on 3/11, I was give my surgical date for 4/9.

I’m guessing they meant pre op diet. Or pre op appointment at hospital (some people have a separate appt for that).

Sorry about that! Yes, I'm suppose to have a seperate pre-op appointment with the hospital. No one has contacted me yet though. I was just wondering if anyone else is still waiting to do their pre-op appt at the hospital and what it might consist of?

What is everyone’s favorite clear Protein Drink?

I like the Premier Protein clear because it has 20 grams of Protein for In the beginning at least cause it’s so hard to get in the protein. I only found on Amazon in two flavors so I may switch to another brand once I can get some solid foods in through.

Yes bring it. People mentioned it and I didn’t get it and regretted it. You will probably only need it for like a day but it would be a huge help. So much so I’m surprised they don’t give it to you at hospital. That and chap stick. My hospital gave me some but just in case.

My surgery date is April 21st and it cant come fast enough

I felt The same way. Everything in life was referred to in terms of where I would be at in my surgery timeline. Lol. Once you start your preop it should seem to Go a little faster for you. These chats helped me a lot as well.

This forum definitely is helping me along the way.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      2. UniquelyMe28

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
