I am going through the same thing. Everyday I read about what to expect, what do I need, what can go wrong...its alot. I have my preop today with the surgeons office. Hopefully that goes well. Im excited to have the surgery. Just scared of the changes afterwards.

I have been recently focusing more on the long term (better health outcomes) and the practicalities of my surgery date (booking time off work & dog-sitter!) But I am worried I am not going to cope in the month or two following surgery with the fatigue and adjusting to new ways of eating and drinking. All my surgeon says is research more! And then when I have too many questions about malabsorption he said I had read too much hahaha.. it's really hard to know how it will be for each individual. I am scared as I am self-funding mine that I will be in debt for a procedure that won't work / goes wrong. But I have faith in my surgeon and can't go on like this.

I was told that I am going home from the hospital the same day, and should only be out of work a week (desk job). I am so ready! I am almost a week into the liquid diet, and it’s getting easier every day. I am walking and drinking a ton of Water. I am losing between 1-2 pounds a day- and that’s motivating me!! Good luck all!!

I was told similar, that I would be off work for a week (desk job and working from home). So, I've told my boss to definitely plan on me being out a week, but, thankfully he is fine if I need to take more time or work half days for the second week. I've heard of a lot of folks going home the same day. My surgeon has me spending one night at the hospital and I have no doubt I will be anxious to get home the next day! So glad to hear the liquid diet is getting easier! I'm going to remind myself of that a bunch when I start mine at the end of the month!

I was told I would be out 3 weeks which he gave me doctors note for. Which is ok with me lets me get my routine before I go back. Im staying one night in the hospital and only have to do liquids the day before surgery. Im so glad. I was worried about having to do it for 2 weeks.

I'm having an endoscopic sleeve done 6/17! Could probably have chosen earlier (self-pay) but that's the best time I could get time off work.

Hi Everyone!

how wonderful to have found this forum!

My surgery is scheduled for June 1st. Not nervous, just ready to have it and then be able to live! So glad to have found this forum to be able share with others. I may be a bit older than many of you — I’m 62. I just retired and have helping to take care of grandchildren.

My main goals are to stop the beginnings of joint pain, high blood pressure, etc. I also want to be able to run and play with my grandkids for many years.

I have a hiatal hernia that is going to b3 repaired at the same time. Anyone else with this issue?

        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 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      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.

      2. Iluvbats

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).

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