November 2021 surgeries



Recommended Posts

My surgery is scheduled for 11/22 -- just one day before you, @Wolfievonsnap!

It was originally scheduled for 11/1, but last month there was a miscommunication with my cardiologist that resulted in an unnecessary 3-week delay. Frustrating, but I'm glad it wasn't longer! This is day 7 of the pre-op diet.

@Misnomer awesome!! Do you have to do 2 days of liquid diet before surgery? I'm on day 6 of low carb pre op diet. I start liquid Sunday.

My program refers to the entire 2-week thing as a "liquid diet," but part of the plan is a Protein Bar every day plus either a banana or 8oz of low-fat milk (for potassium). It becomes strictly liquid-only 2 days before surgery, though. For me, that will happen on Saturday. I love bananas, so that was an easy choice at first, but right now I'm desperate for any variety so I'll be switching to 1% milk this week. :) And they only provided 12 Protein Bars to begin with (smart bariatric center!), so I won't have to remember to stop eating them. I have my pre-op nutritionist appointment tomorrow morning, and Wednesday morning is the pre-op with my surgeon. I have a feeling this week will go by really fast!!

I am 11 days out from my RNY and back to work. I feel amazing. The first three days sucked, but after that, I am ready to go to war again. This show will continue rolling!

This is my first time coming across this site!

Date set for November 22nd (5 days!!) and starting to get nervous!

And my willpower has not been great as far as my 7-day protien shake/liquid only diet. Today was my first really good day as far as that goes.

Half of November is done with their surgeries🤗 Hope you're all doing great!!

*also the orange cream Bariatric Advantage Vitamins are the highlight of my day, lol!!

      Keep going. I guess I'm experiencing a stall almost 6 weeks out. Keep going.

      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!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      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.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

    • UniquelyMe28

      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 🥲
