January 2022 Surgery Buddies



Recommended Posts

Hello! Thought I would start out this group as I have a surgery date for Jan 4, 2022!! I'm so excited and a bit anxious for the pre-op diet - I will be starting it while on vacation - but what a great way to say Hello to the New Year!!

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.

Hi everyone,

I submitted all the documents 2 weeks ago to my Surgeon’s Office. I’m awaiting:

1. 2 more appointments with my Surgeon Signing the consent form, picking a Surgery date and taking a quiz while at the 2nd appointment

3. Approval letter from the insurance company

The Holiday season is up on, it’s obvious that my Surgery won’t be next month like I wanted . It will be in January

Can we make a Facebook group so we can chat daily and cheer each other along?

I’m in! My surgery is December 10th. I’m having the gastric sleeve done in Mexico. My insurance won’t cover it.

Dianne: It’s normal to feel nervous. Your feelings are valid.

What is every one’s name on Facebook? Add me. I want to create a group chat on Facebook so we can talk and support one another. My name is Marie Antoinette. Add me & send a private message.

Are you scared to have it done in Mexico?

I just heard from my doctor that my surgery is scheduled for Jan 18th. I am super excited! I've decided on the RNY due to GERD and heartburn that I currently suffer from.

Yes! Very excited! Are you?

Sorry for the delay in getting back with you. With the Holiday I was not able to get on here.

I am excited. Trying to get everything in order is a challenge.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      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 .
