Welcome! Congrats on your weight loss so far. I can't answer if surgery is too painful because I haven't had surgery yet, but I know some people have more pain than other people. I've been preparing for surgery for five months and I'm ready for it to be "over" too! But it's never really over, it's a lifelong journey. I know what you mean; I'm ready for the surgery to be over - I'm so nervous about that part!

pain is all over the board, but most of us have little to no pain with these surgeries. I had pretty much zero pain - I actually wondered if they actually did the surgery! But they'll send you home with pain meds, so if you're one of the unfortunate ones who does have pain, you'll have the meds to manage it.

I had bypass in December. I did not have much pain.

I know it's hard to wait once you have your mind set on something. My advice is to use the time to learn all you can. Surgery changes your insides. It does not change your brain, your habits and your coping mechanisms.

Am I glad I did it? Yes. Somedays it's easy. Other days are harder.

I had DS three days ago. There’s some gas pain and uncomfortable pain to be tolerated. Nothing excruciating for me. However, the nausea from the drugs kicked my butt. The other patient who had a sleeve, was fine and dandy, talking, eating, etc.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
