I did a deep clean also. It has really helped. I lost 11 lbs pre surgery but by what everyone is posting my surgeon is A LOT stricter on diet than others seem to be

Go bra-less for sure!

Surgery buddies! Mine is on the 14th too. Have you started your liquid diet yet? If so, how are you holding up!!

I have not. My Dr. said my pre-surgery weight loss (30lbs) was good so he said I can do Protein Drinks with one small meal for three days prior to surgery. I plan on doing full liquid though just to help with my mind set.
What about you?
Im currently cleaning my house, figuring out meals for my family and trying to figure out what to take to the hospital with me.

I think I am getting there. I have some shakes, sugar free drinks, sugar free Jello & ice pops,broth, etc. I ordered my Vitamins. I think I just need to pack my bag & pick up meds for post surgery.




I want to get some meals prepped & frozen for my family while I recover, that way I don't need to worry about cooking much those first 2 weeks.




I went to the pre op class yesterday. So much to remember (when to stop taking vitamins/meds, when to start others, etc.)! I have an appointment with my endocrinologist the week before. Then sometime that week before, I need to go to the hospital for presurgery tests/bloodwork.




Getting closer & real! 😬🤯 🙌 😁




What about you, do you have everything ready? (& anyone else getting ready before surgery)




To those that have gone all ready, what was helpful to bring from while in the hospital? Is there anything that is typically suggested that you didn't need? What has been helpful those first few days? (Tools, foods, products, activities, etc.)


I took my own Shampoo, conditioner and body wash but didn’t need it. There wasn’t any time to take a shower before I was released. A change of clothes, my tooth brush and hair ties was all I needed. One think I wish I brought were my headphones. The beeping and people you hear all night can keep you up. Wish I wouldn’t have forgot mine. Hope this helps!

Surgery in the AM.... its starting to get really real. I've even had doubts today but I've wanted this band out for a while so I'm trying to keep positive.

Hi Everyone! In my online search to find a group, I find this site. I am scheduled for the 15th, it’s coming up quick!

This pre-op diet is making me so weak, I’m on day 6 of it. My cycle came on yesterday and my cravings are out of this world! Eeeek!

Hi! Has anybody else gotten light-headed on the liver shrinking diet? I feel faint a lot when I stand up.

Sorry to hear about light headedness. I haven't had that problem, but do have a raging headache that has persisted for the last three days and nausea. I've read all of these are normal reactions to a liquid diet.

Light headedness when standing is generally due to a sudden drop in blood pressure. Two things that may help are a little exercise early in the morning (even just a short walk to get the blood moving) and try not to sit or lay down too long. And...stand up slowly when you have been doing so.

I didn’t have it pre-op but I sure have post-op. I started doing the early light exercise and getting up every 30 minutes slowly and just walking the length of my house. It helped so much I actually walked a mile this morning

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
