It was still 150/90 but he cleared me. So I guess that’s all that matters.

Hello all. I can’t believe I actually get to post in one of these threads now. I’ve been on these forums for years but haven’t had insurance that covered it. That’s finally changed! My surgery is scheduled for November 22. I have my pre op appointment on November 11th. I hope you’re all doing well and kicking butt on your pre op diets!

Me too. I’m going to go ahead and start my pre op diet today. Good luck!

How are you doing on your pre-op? I am doing pretty good. I was a bit dizzy day 2, yesterday, but today I am not. It hasn't been horrible. I mean yeah I feel a little empty at times, but just keep telling myself it is only for X more days, and it is my Prep....just like for a colonoscopy only longer lol. And, I know it will be worth it. It is only going to make things easier on me. I honestly feel like a whinny butt when I get hungry. Like c'mon Robin there are tons of people that have nothing to eat every day....you can do this!! We ALL can!!!

I’m doing okay too. I had a headache the first couple of days. I guess due to no caffeine. It’s gone away now and I feel back to normal, other than feeling deprived. Living on Protein Shakes isn’t fun. I mixed a premier caramel shake with Decaf chai tea and it was pretty good. So far I’ve been able to resist temptations. Have you got your Vitamins yet? I’m researching the chewable vitamins and think I’ll go with those. I’ll probably order them tonight or tomorrow. The big day is coming up fast.

Hello! :1307_wave_tone3:

NOVEMBER 9 for me.

I was scheduled earlier this year, but illness delayed me for a bit. It was frustrating then, but I'm over it now. As much as I'm going to miss the holiday "norms" I do love this time of year, and have other things to enjoy, so that helps.

I'm on a 2 week liquid diet (shakes, broth, Jello, popsicles). Day 4 and I feel pretty eh. I made it through a week of the liquid diet last time, so it's not really "new" but I feel more bored with it this time around, if that makes sense. It's all mental games, so I'm trying to remember that and use it as experience for post-op mental games.

Super nervous about the actual surgery (never had surgery before), and having somewhat irrational fears about it. But the excitement is also building.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 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!!

      2. SleeverSk

        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 .
