November Surgery Buddies!!!



Recommended Posts

Started our PreOp 10 day diet today. It is going smoother than I imagined so far. I have been drinking my Protein Shakes sips at a time trying to get my body used to what it would be like after surgery and it has helped me feel full throughout the day. November 8th can't get here soon enough!!

I have had my surgery back November of 2019 and it feels like it was just yesterday!! I will post up a trend in the post op regarding my experience and the ups and downs if you would like to take a look. ☺️


Any tips on things we should take to the hospital with us?

Hello Stacie! I'm having my band removed but going to bypass on the 6th too! How long have you been banded? I've been banded since 2005. Thankful to have this 2nd chance. Best of wishes for a safe, speedy and total healthy recovery and WL journey!

Oh amazing wrre are you having it done? I've had my band since around 2009. I'm hoping there is not too much fatty tissue and they are able to do it in one operation. All the very best to you too ♥ xx

I'm scheduled for November 1st... 😅 I'm getting nervous but I'm glad to be taking this step in changing my life for the better! This liquid diet really sucks- but I'm committed and I keep in mind that it is temporary! It's also a little stressful going to the hospital during the pandemic... I'm praying for a successful surgery and to remain Covid free... 🙌 Please send positive energy and prayers! I really appreciate it! Wishing everyone the best! 🌠

My surgery is Nov.3 I just found out 3 days ago because it got bumped up because of a opening. I’m nervous because it’s not many days to do the liver shrinking diet

I think you should be OK they wouldn't have you in so quick to have it done if the liver shrinking diet made a real big impact. We're are you having it done? I'm really nervous more so about being put to sleep xx

Hi all! Got my date after being on hold due to covid.. Nov 11th!
I am so afraid the preop diet won't shrink my liver enough, so even though Dr says to do just low carb, I feel I may do 2 shakes a day and 1 meal of Protein and veggies from here on out. Don't want to take any chances.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

        So proud of you Cat. Getting into those smaller size clothes is half the fun isn't it?. Keep up the good work!!!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?

      April Surgery
      Am I the only struggling to get weight down. I started with weight of 297 and now im 280 but seem to not lose more weight. My nutrtionist told me not to worry about the pounds because I might still be losing inches. However, I do not really see much of a difference is this happen to any of you, if so any tips?
      Thanks

      Well recovering from gallbladder removal was a lot like recovering from the modified duodenal switch surgery, twice in 4 months yay 🥳😭. I'm having to battle cravings for everything i shouldn't have, on top of trying to figure out what happens after i eat something. Sigh, let me fast forward a couple of months when everyday isn't a constant battle and i can function like a normal person again! 😞

        I may have to have gall bladder surgery during my weight loss surgery. Not thrilled about it either but do not want 2 recovery times. Just want it over with.

        Thanks for your post. I may need to rethink my decision... :(
