9/8 Surgery Date Vanderbilt - Nashville



Recommended Posts

i am one week into my liquid diet and by this time next week i should be in surgery.
Day 3 & 4 of liquid was tough but i came through it. Thankfully
i am going home to Celebrate my mom’s 80th birthday this labor day weekend. I know this will be tough
first dealing with everyone in the family asking me about it and being around all the food.
i choose to keep my journey private to everyone except my immediate family.
It will be hard with my mom she will be asking me what am i eating and how much weight i have lost daily.
i dont want to become just about my surgery-
then there is the comparison to other people that have had wls amd gained weight back…
i know i am rambling but these thoughts were going through my head today

I am on day 4 of my pre-op diet. I am finally not nauseous anymore. But I'm starting to get nervous about the surgery. I've never had surgery before!!

I have a friend coming for Labor Day weekend, and it's going to be hard to eat with him. But he's supportive of my plans, although when I talked to him last night he admitted he's nervous for me. I think that's what started me being nervous.

I've been totally open about my surgery, even on Facebook. I've been talking about it too much.

I'm also really nervous about gaining weight back - I've gained weight back so many times!

I had my surgery at Vandy in Lebanon on Sept 7th. We’re in the same program!

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      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 .
