Hi. I’m new to this app/forum. I’m having a gastric sleeve tomorrow (May 3) in Syracuse, NY. I was originally scheduled in Dec, but COVID stopped that. Now that the day is really here I’m starting to get nervous about it. The only ones I have told are my 2 kids, my sister, 2 close friends at work & of course my boss.

I am having my surgery tomorrow, too! Only my husband knows that I am having surgery. I told my adult children that I am having a hernia repaired—they would not understand why I elected to have weightloss surgery. My 28 year old daughter is a fitness and health nut, and she thinks all I need to do is eat better and exercise (like I haven’t been doing that for the past 10 years). I will tell them the truth post-surgery—I just need to do this for me without their judgement! I am both excited and nervous! I am more nervous about what life will be like post-surgery more than I am for the surgery! In any case—we’ve got this! Good Luck tomorrow—I will send you positive thoughts from my pre-op room in TN! 🥰

Good luck to you too!! My 22yr old daughter was the same way, but she now understands & is very supportive. I’ll be 59 next month & single, so I’m lucky to have her on my side. I was started on a diet by my pediatrician when I was 11yrs old & have struggled also with the weight yo-yo made worse by my thyroid & hysterectomy. Thanks for responding! Nice to know I’m not alone. ☺️

Hey all, My date is coming up here soon at the end of May. But I’m wondering, I was told I had to get a CPap By one of the ladies that worked at the hospital and be on it for six weeks before surgery. But then another lady from the hospital called and scheduled me for surgery. I don’t have a CPAP, my insurance wouldn’t approve it and the Doctor Who originally wrote the order was too lazy to fix the mistake. So I’m curious will they really turn me away on my surgery day just because I don’t have a CPAP? Really I never needed one in the first place. Have any of you heard of someone being turned away because they don’t have a CPAP with them?

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
