Any October 2021 Surgeries?



Recommended Posts

Hi I’m new but sleeve booked for 13th October in Dublin. Totally terrified- not really about the surgery well A little about the surgery/anaesthetic and after pain but mostly about the future and failing. But not doing it is more scary so onwards towards health! 🤞. Good luck to everyone doing this we all have our reasons for surgery.

I’m getting the bypass on Oct 6.
I’m so excited, but nervous about the physical recovery. I have a physical job and want to be safe, yet be able to go back to work.
I am in the same boat with returning to work. My surgeon only gives two weeks off. My employer requires 100% fit for duty. I worry about that.

Hello everyone! My surgery date is 10/8 - from the band to the bypass. I am extremely nervous for the procedure and scared of this to not working. I am vegan so the food options also worry me and not getting enough of everything I need. Good luck to all of you and I would like to hear more of your stories post surgery.

My sleeve is scheduled for 10/11. This is my first surgery and I’m doing an early pre-op diet before I start a real pre-op diet on Monday. I’m in the Dallas area

Mine is sept 30 but most people in the sept thread have gotten their surgery already, so I needed a thread for upcoming surgeries. Good luck everyone!

So excited for you guys! I would love to hear more about you and your journey. I am 49, live in Austin and have struggled with weight my whole life. My surgery is actually a revision from the lap band to gastric bypass. I've spent the last three months researching like crazy and feel really great about this life changing decision!

Are they doing the band removal at the same time as the bypass? I had to have a lap band removed also but he had me do them separately and wait some time in between 🙄

      😫 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 .
