Any October 2021 Surgeries?



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

my name is Chenon and I’m in Wisconsin. I’m set for 10/1 to have the sleeve procedure. I made a deal with myself that I needed to make the changes first for a year and then do the surgery. So I did … and list 125lbs in the last 16 months!

Even so, this 2 week all liquid diet is legit killing me. I struggled at first, then I was traveling and that was a different kind of beast, now I’m home and my family eats yummy stuff, but not me.

My surgery got cancelled after getting my EGD. They say I have Diabetic Gastroparesis. Now before I can get my Bariatric surgery (which actually is a treatment for Gastroparesis) I have to do a four hour stomach emptying test. I will get that on October 12. Hopefully surgery will be in my future after the surgeon gets those results.

Hi! So my surgery will be next Friday, the 8th.. originally was the 7th but surgeon needed to switch. I had my pre-op yesterday and I only have to fill my post-op meds (like pain medicine), get a COVID test on the 4th and get some labs drawn. That’s it. No special diet or anything like that.

I’m having a hernia repair at the same time. I’m so worried about dehydration and pain afterwards I’m having trouble sleeping now, lol! I’m excited but it just needs to happen so I don’t have to keep thinking about the what-ifs.

How is everyone else doing today??

Hi! doing well. My surgery is 10/4 and I'm also having hernia repair at the same time.

I did pre-op with on 9/20, at my surgeon's office. I had my PAT Lab work on 9/27 and my COVID test is 10/1. I'm on the 2nd week of my 2 week, pre-op, liver shrinking diet. I also received all my post-op meds.

During my pre-op, they decided to have me see a pulmonologist which was yesterday, for a last minute clearance!

I’m 2 days post op by-pass from a sleeve due to GERD. I’ve been through this before but it seems so different this time. 🤞🏼it works. My biggest thing right now is all the Vitamins. They are meals in themselves. Good Luck with everything!

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
