Dear keepthefocus

Be strong your doing it for the best for you and your family.

We all know exactly how you feel Nd what your going through.

I found surgery fine. I'm on day 6 after surgery and I'm OK. Listen to all the advice but listen to your self and body. I'm a very active person with work and home but have had to stop and realise I need time to heal.

Will be thinking of you.

Stay in touch.

This time in a year we it will all be a thing of the past and do worth it.

Xxxx

Hi everyone! New year but have been lurking for a whole. 10/26 if surgery and will start liquid diet tomorrow.
I’ve been so excited about this but now that it’s too weeks away I am starting to get so scared.

I am also having my Gastric Bypass on 10/26! Started my Pre Op diet today, but fortunately its not full liquids until 2 days prior to surgery. Its definitely starting to feel real!

Surgery scheduled 10/25

on day 3 of my pre op liquid diet and really going crazy craving Pasta. I feel like if I get it out of my system I will be fine the rest of the time but am scared if I eat it today it will affect me 11 days from now . Any input on a one time cheat during that pre op liquid only window?

Had sleeve surgery 10/13 so three days post op. Day of surgery was the toughest with soreness and getting Water in. But each day since then has been huge improvement with both. One thing I am thankful for is the lack of the hunger feeling. I got it a couple of times but realized it was in my brain and not signals from my body. A couple sips of water easily satisfied that urge. I am very excited about the days and weeks that lie ahead!

I’m on my second day of preop diet. I’m keeping busy by making Soups and cleaning out the refrigerator. That thing is a mess!

When I had mine done a few years back I had the same issue with water. Adding crystal lights minimized the aches going down. It was weird because prior to I didn’t like crystal light and I preferred water solo lol. But it’s true what my Dr. said your taste buds will change. And another thing he strongly suggested was to NOT buy in bulk yet since it’ll all be trial and error until one can discover what one can tolerate, because again what one might tolerate and like prior to surgery can change post. My revision from sleeve to duodenal switch is 10/27!!

I am scheduled for gastric bypass on October 11th. So excited but nervous!

Anyone else having surgery in October?

Sent from my SM-G981U using BariatricPal mobile app

Had mine done Oct 6th.

Going well. Now onto pureed food.

Got told by doc's rather handsome side kick 3 Protein Shakes a day but could only do 2 made me feel sick. Nutrition skinny lady said he's a doctor I'm the foodie don't listen to him regarding food 🤪 and she's right.

Only bad bit was Dave the stomach drain who I had to go home with. His looks were not so stunning so he got covered with a sock 😏 but after 11 days we separated and went our separate ways.

But all in all good, tired and taking it slowly.

Big love to you all

Onwards and upwards

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
