Hi all, I’m sitting here in my gown waiting to go down for my surgery. Excited, bloody scared, I’m having lap band removed and sleeve done.

god willing it will all go as planned. X

Hi all, update on surgery, all went to plan, been sucking on extra strong mints and Rennie wind tablets, so far not a lot of gas. Had fluids and clear Soup and a small yogurt today, seemed ok, a bit sore and feel v bloated/swollen around stomach, feel tired as not much sleep due to constant checks

having paracetamol and ibuprofen for pain, so not much, did feel v sick when I woke up but anti sickness jab sorted that also on IV for antibiotics and saline but that stops later and all being well home tomorrow

walking around is ok as well, hope this helps others x

My surgery was August 10th, and I’m on blended foods right now so I know what you mean. I feel like I crave food even though I’m not hungry. I am a week away from soft chopped and I am so excited. The ricotta bake did help me feel like I was eating more normal foods. Puréed Soups from Panera also helped. They say the head hunger gets better, and I hope so!! I think we’re in a weird stage where we can’t eat what we want, and we don’t see significant weight loss yet so we feel kind of stuck. You’ll do great, we just have to give it time! 🤞

My surgery was august 4th..within a few days I started with creamier Soups and I loved Panera soups the cream of broccoli and I would eat cream of chicken at home. Once I was at 12-13 days I started puréed foods..I eat hard boiled eggs like 1 is a full meal but omg it’s so good..I started with chicken and tuna and low fat string cheese- I make sure they’re chopped up very well and chew a lot and I’ve had no issues! Also I got mashed cauliflower and other veggies with seasonings (no butters or anything tho). It’s day 17 and overall I’ve lost 29 pounds- 14 before surgery and 15 since the 4th! Good luck! Lmk if you have any questions I can help with!

So glad to hear all my August surgery peeps are doing well! I go in tomorrow morning at 5:30AM and am finding myself in my emotions today. Tons of worries and just the emotional toll of knowing I need to go to this extreme to lose weight. I keep telling myself my last 10-15 years have proven I need a tool to help me stay healthy and I know it's the right thing. It's like this unexpected last minute wave of shame and guilt. I hate the thought of putting anyone out and my husband will be bearing the brunt of this with extra childcare, chores, errands, etc.

I thought I could get through this without a therapist, but I am seeing now how that will be a helpful resource. I can only imagine the emotions that will come with this lifestyle change and the changes my body will be going through.

Trying to breathe, stay focused and look to the future today. Thanks for listening! I am so excited to continue to hear about all of your journeys! Best wishes to you all! ❤️

I had mine August 16. Feeling pretty good. Had gas first few days. Lost 11 pounds since Monday. I too felt nervous. Kept thinking I-may cancel. So glad I had it done. No appetite after surgery. Drinking Gatorade zero. chicken Soup Protein Drinks. Jello. Smart Water. Good luck. You can do this for quality of life and longevity 🤗

My surgery was this past Tuesday 8/17. Procedure went fine, extreme nausea following, bloating and gas for two days, generally uncomfortable for two more - now on day 5 I'm finally feeling more "normal" and getting my energy back.

My doctor has his patients begin the soft Protein diet immediately upon arrival home from the hospital on day 2, so I've been eating small 2-3oz portions of yogurt, hummus, ricotta, egg. Reading other posts here makes me feel very fortunate that the liquid diet didn't extend longer - 14 days pre-op was more than enough for me!

I shed 20lbs on the pre-op liquid diet and have lost 6 more since Tuesday, so I'm down 26lbs from my highest weigh-in, which is very motivating for me.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
