Crossing the fingers that I can get a surgery date in January. I have a pre-op appointment on the 17th and hope to get my date then! Super excited for this opportunity.

Unfortunately due to COVID, all bariatric surgeries have been postponed with my surgeon. Wishing all those who are getting surgery in January all the best! Kick butt!!!!!

Oh no! I’m glad it’s still on though!




Today is the first day that I’ve felt like myself, and I’m up doing laundry and things.




The biggest thing that I can say, and I know everyone says it, is STAY HYDRATED. I missed my hydration goal a few times and had to go get an IV to replies what I lost, and I didn’t realize how bad I felt till I was hydrated again. The slow sip sip sips were killing me, so I’m not chugging Water, but I’m taking normal drinks and that seems to be working so much better for me.




EDIT: I don’t know about other’s, but the absolute worst pain for me, for about 4 days out was the CO2 gas stuck in my chest. It feels awful, but it will pass!


Day 2 post op the gas is still causing some pain I’ve been burping a lot and that’s been helping.

Tomorrow is surgery day! I'm super nervous and excited all at once. I almost had to postpone as my hubby has covid but my test came back negative and the surgeon said he's not concerned since I'm vaccinated. Have to be to the hospital at 5:15am wish me luck!

Happy new year to you all and many blessings 🥰

What Bariatric Vitamins are you all planning to take.


I’m going to try the Bariatric Fusion capsule. My surgeon gave me samples but I can’t start them until back on regular diet.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 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!!

        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 .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
