Anyone else having VSG end of Nov 2021?



Recommended Posts

My surgery is 24th Nov. I have done 2 of 3 weeks of the pre op diet. I am in the UK and we seem to have docs with different diets here. I am allowed Milk, veg, yogurt and fruit. It works out at about 1000 to 1200 cals a day. I am sick and tired of the veg prep and the boring menu. Its cold here so I want warm food. My poor husband hates my farts TMI. I can look at my doctors photograph and call him an absolute b*****d and a torturer and please would he end this and move my surgery forward to this afternoon

Anyone on a more restricted diet has my complete sympathy,

Just had my surgery!! 11/12. Did the preop diet for two weeks before that. Went well. Now in phase 2

Oh nice. Are you feeling ok? Was the prep diet all liquid for you? I plan to drive 15 hours south 2 weeks after surgery and nervous about how Im gonna feel.

Your English cussword made me laugh! Ive already cheated a little and will prob continue to do so. However, after ingeting 250 calories yesterday I managed to gain 4 pounds by today. *sigh*

Yes!! Day 1 was gas in my stomach, chest etc but I walked every 2 hours and it went away. Then my forearms hurt the night I got home so I called the doctor and they said it was normal from the IVs. It went away next day. Day 4 post op went by like a breeze. No pain (just soreness when I get up) and no nausea. Puréed stuff is going down fine.

I didn’t have a liquid diet, just 2 Meal Replacement smoothies and a light meal for 2 weeks before.

You totally can!!!! The gas when you first get out of surgery makes you feel slight instant regret, not going to lie. However it goes away and from there it’s much better!!!! Soreness will be there but it’s not actual pain. You got this!!

      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!

      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.

      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 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
