Hi everyone!

I’m having surgery tomorrow 10/2/21 in Tijuana. My mom had the same gastric sleeve procedure done at the same location years ago and is doing great…but I’m still so nervous. I’ve never had surgery before and am really scared of anesthesia or some crazy complication (though I know the chance is tiny). Also I’m afraid I won’t be able to eat anything normal after recovery…I really love cooking and having friends and family over for dinner. It’s always been such a source of pride to me and I feel sad I won’t be able to enjoy that the way I used to.

Just trying to focus on all the good things that will come of this to stay calm and positive. No more joint pain, fitting into old clothes, better body image, etc!!

Very best of luck to everyone, I just signed up for this and it’s really comforting to know I’m not alone :)

Mine is confirmed for October 27, 2021 for a duodenal switch, I had a gastric sleeve back in October 24 2018. Went from 360 to 215. I had a good run with it but ended up in the icu for 18 days due to COVID and nearly dying and became limited in mobility. I had such bad complications and I still do but more manageable. My body aches are so bad than when I was overweight. My Dr.’s don’t want to do another sleeve because the likelihood of gaining the weight back is greater again, whereas the duodenal switch is more effective, luckily my gastric doctor handles both and is excellent! I can’t wait, just nervous about the Vitamin deficiency though 😰 good luck to you all!

Hello everyone , I had a revision from VSG to Roux-en-Y on October 1st. I just made it home from
The hospital no complications . The first day is painful but today I’m feeling a little better .

It’s not as bad as I was expecting but I asked to walk right out of surgery and basically walked every 2 hours which helped a lot with the gas pain !

Good luck everyone!

Hey Folks! I’m 1 day post-op for the sleeve. I lost 121lbs on my own as a personal goal leading up to surgery and now the healing stages begin.

I'm definitely uncomfortable, but my pain is being managed while I’m here at the hospital. I haven’t progressed to anything beyond drinking Water yet as the inflammation is causing my stomach to be very painful with intake still.

Everyone’s journey is different, but I certainly wanted to hop on and share a little of what mine is going like. It’s getting better, just a bit slower on the healing side of things than I had hoped.

      😫 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 .
