Hi All -
My sleeve surgery is scheduled for 6/28. I am eager and excited about it. Today I found this forum and I could not be happier. I have so many questions and love to learn more from those going through it too.

My surgery is may 24. I am having an EGD in may 18. I have been on the liquid diet for about a week. I was supposed to lose 30 before my surgery and I have only lost 27. But I am walking and am losing about a pound a day on the liquid.

You can do this 👏🏻👏🏻I’m 40 years old and getting mine done at end of June. Excited and nervous. Curious what are your stats?

I'm scheduled for June 28th. Have my final meeting with the nutritionist on the 2nd and will be going liquid a week later. I'm so excited and nervous at the same time. I've been fortunate that I have been able to get through all the preliminaries and just started on February 10th.

Has anyone used Georgia SurgiCare in ATL for their Gastric sleeve surgery? I am scheduled for June 15th.

I’m using them for the ESG on 6/17!

I was scheduled for MAY, but my surgery got postponed. A week into the liquid diet and I got sick with bronchitis, and need to be on some meds and heal. SO frustrating. So it's pushed out almost a month. They were going to do it earlier, but I think a couple weeks later is the better option. I don't think trying to heal and doing the liquid diet was the best. I'm frustrated, but in a way relieved. I was feeling "off" for a bit, and was nervous about not feeling 100% going into surgery. Just hoping for some good healing right now!

I tell ya, it's weird to eat food after the liquid diet. 21 days and I'm back on the shakes.

Anyway, hello June surgery folks.

        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!
