Excited for a better version of me!



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! New to the forum. Decided after years of being overweight and uncomfortable in my own body, to finally take care of me. Have had all my pre-op testing. Passed everything with no issues. Hoping to hear from pre-op coordinator on my surgery consult date next week. Would love to get surgery scheduled by the end of April!

Ready for a better, healthier version of me! 😊

Congrats on completing your requirements! We're in the same boat but I still have a couple of nutrition classes and pulmonary visit to complete. It's exciting and nerve-wracking going through this process, but I'm so ready! Good luck and I hope you get your date soon!

Thank You! I am not usually an overly emotional person, but after the call today, I started to silently cry [thank goodness I was working from home and not in the office]. I felt mentally "lighter" and that a burden was being lifted. Being overweight + feeling powerless over food + the yo-yo dieting, has been exhausting over the years. I know I am doing the right thing for my health, both physically and mentally. Thank you for the support!

Yes, yes and most definitely yes. I can only imagine how you must've been feeling. Now you can focus on getting ready for surgery without the worry in the back of you mind that it may not happen. I am looking forward to that call myself, so I understand!

These boards have ALREADY been extremely helpful to me as an over-researcher/over-analyzer 😊 Love that other people that have been/are going through this are here for each other with all of this collective knowledge.

Anyway...yay you!

I am now 3 days post op. No major issues...working through some nausea, but other than that...no pain. I do walk every few hours up our 700ft driveway to the street. I think that has helped with the gas pain. Also using a heating pad to help with back pain. Down 16lbs from intake weight and down 12lbs from day of surgery. I know that is mostly, if not all, Water weight. But I'll take it! Just happy to be on the other side and on the road to the new me!!

And absolutely no hunger...which is really amazing since I have not had any food since last week.

This is GREAT info! And NO hunger? I can barely imagine that, let alone in the middle of the liquid stage. I hope your recovery is nice and easy! Yay you! 🤩

It's been a few days, I hope things are still going well?

I am doing great! Still doing mostly liquids and cream Soups. eggs are a no go! Got really sick. Which I am kinda bummed about because I really like eggs. But I still don't really have any hunger...there has been a few times I thought I was hungry, but then I drank some lemon tea and it went away. As of yesterday, I am down 31lbs from my HW and 27lbs from my SW. Had a 3 day stall...but then it was back to losing. I need to try some soft vegs..but I'm a bit scared. The whole egg fiasco was not fun.

Your surgery date is coming up! May 18th, right? How is the pre-op diet going?
