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!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
