Hey There! Any December 2021 Surgery Friends?



Recommended Posts

I'm scheduled for December 29! I'm in the phase where I am cautiously excited and still sort of feeling like I can't believe it's happening. I'm getting nervous and also chomping at the bit. I'm all over the place! LOL. My doctor has a protocol of 2-week strict diet before surgery. I start that on the 14th. On the 21st it goes to full liquid diet. A little nervous about that, but I know I can do it.

I started doing Protein Shakes for Breakfast and the evening for the past week and lost about 6 lbs (probably mostly Water weight). I’ve also been trying out the Protein water/ powders. I don’t start my preop diet until 1 week prior to surgery.

I just learned about Protein Water this week! What kinds have you tried? I start my strict pre-op diet next week, and I'm thinking I'll give some protein water a try.

Hello from the other siiiiiiide! I had RNY on Dec 1 and was home the next afternoon. I've had more pain than I anticipated, but have had zero problems meeting my liquid and Protein minimums. Mainly I've been really tired and just want to rest at every opportunity. It's been pleasant not to feel hungry, especially after having completed the grueling pre-op diet.

Lucky you! I had to start my pre-op diet Dec. 4th, last Saturday. Where are you getting it done? Yes, good luck to you! There's a really great and informative group on Facebook for December surgeries, you should join.

Surgery is tomorrow morning. So nervous out if nowhere. This is a huge change for the body. I’m praying all goes well and that like LASIK it will be one of the best decisions of my life.

Sitting in my hospital bed post op VSG today. Lots of tummy pain initially. Was given dilaudid and it helped immensely. After walking to the bathroom I was authorized for my X-ray confirmation. It was so cool to see my little baby stomach on the screen after taking a shot of contrast. It’s been 12 hours, pain is being managed with acetaminophen well enough. Started my liquids which I really have to make an effort to take down. 1 sip at a time is my motto. Hoping all goes well for everyone here.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
