Hi! My surgery is on monday the 12th of july and I'm excited and scared at the same time. I keep thinking "I can stil cancell" and that's kinda reassuring...

They did a liver scan and my liver is a normal size so I don't have to do a pre-op diet. No Multivitamins either, not yet.

Did they tell you how many days you'll be at the hospital? And how many weeks will you be taking off work?

By the way, hi from Belgium!

Hi July peeps! My surgery is July 6th and I am on day 2 of the pre-op diet. Luckily I really like the Premier Protein drinks so I am not yet losing my mind lol. My doctor had me stop taking Vitamin D and any other OTC Vitamins I was taking on Monday. Oh and LeenBXL my doctor told me I would be in the hospital for one night as long as there are no complications.

My surgery is July 7th. Had my pre-op visit (blood draws) and Dexa scan today. I was also told to stop taking Multi Vitamins. I will get a shot in the hospital and then will resume taking them 2 weeks out.

Exciting! We’re the same height, similar weight, and have similar goals! Keep me updated on how you’re doing as we’re only a month apart!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 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!!

        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 .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
