Hello surgery buddies! You have been on my mind this week. Even though mine was derailed, I have been thinking of you and wishing you easy recoveries. You got this! ❤️

Hello surgery buddies! Revision from VSG to RNY! Just got my date yesterday. November 5th for me! I was surprised at how fast the process moved this time!

My date got pushed back to February 16th. I have to lose 20-30lbs by Dec 7 th to go ahead with it. I’m down 11. So nerve wracking. Hope the rest of you are well.

Hello.

I was going to be your revision buddy and I am so sorry you weren't able to have it done. I hope you are able to straighten it out and be back on track. Please look me up when you come back. Take good care.

Sleeve to RNY revision this Friday. The day after Thanksgiving. I am excited, nervous and someone else said they didn't feel prepared. That's me. I have Vitamins and all that jazz, but I hate not knowing what to expect. How different is this going to be from sleeve surgery; will the reflux really go away......what do I eat to start off with. I have papers, but I still don't feel like I have a grip on what's getting ready to happen.

Stratusphr- I’ve heard that for most the gerd goes away. I’ve also heard the recovery is a bit more rough than with sleeve. I had open rny to begin with. While it was painful at first, it does get better as you heel. Follow your doctors instructions and do your post op diet which is usually sipping liquids at first. You can do this. It’s worth it. You can do hard things. Best of luck to you.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
