January 2022 Surgery Buddies



Recommended Posts

Had my gastric bypass surgery 1/31 and came home 2/1. Today is 2/2 and I am feeling good. I am pretty tired though. The only trouble I really had was the horrible back pain after I came out of surgery. That has gotten better though.

Hello everyone!

I had my revision surgery on 01/19/2022. I went from lap band to sleeve. Today officially marks 2 weeks post-surgery and I have lost 20 lbs! I dealt with severe nausea, but it's much better now. I feel good overall. Just a bit tired still. Happy to have found this place! ♥

My surgery is set for 01/31/2022. Excited but worried.

I had mine on 1/31 as well! How are you doing? I’m so confused at what my body is feeling.
And I came home 4 pounds heavier from the iv Fluid

I tested positive for Covid so they rescheduled my surgery for 03/28. Very disappointing. Thank you for checking on me. How are you doing?

Were you sick or Asymptomatic? I get tested on Friday with surgery on Monday I feel fine but just a fear since I had a few bumps in the road along the way which almost caused my surgery to get rescheduled AGAIN. So I am on pins and needles.

I had been running a fever and cold like symptoms (cough, congested etc).

Mine was 1/25. I had about the same regain during my days in the hospital & also confusion identifying different pains (muscular? gas? incisions? cut nerves? hunger? fullness?) From my perspective about a week 'ahead' of you I'd say don't sweat that 4lbs gain (it will come off precipitously) & that it's understandable to feel confused.

That’s so exciting! I had my surgery 1/10. 4weeks out and I feel great. I’m happy to see you have a goal I had a goal but my surgeon reminded me that even if the scale doesn’t show it we lose inches. I’ve noticed my stomach is getting smaller, I’m about 20lbs down from surgery and starting this journey when I got interested in surgery I’m down 60lbs! I hope you make your goal!!

So glad to hear you are doing well! Keep kicking butt!

Right now due to COVID, I still don't have a surgery date due to my surgeon having to be on call, however they did advise a possible April date, so I am still awaiting to hear.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?

      Slowly going back to old habits, which is not good. How have others stayed the course and kept losing to achieve goal weight?
