Why are you guys getting postponed? Covid?

Yep. The hospitals in Washington State are overwhelmed. The governor has mandated a four-week hold on any elective surgeries.

I am super nauseated. Did you end up taking something?

The Zolfran has helped me tremendously. I am having a lot of gas pain, reflux, and headaches though. I'm 3 days post op

Cleaning up the house, trying to get things in order before I head to the city 2.5 hours away where I will have the surgery Tuesday morning. Excited, scared, all around nervous, ready to have it done.

I will be staying in the city until Saturday to rest up before someone drives me home.

Any tips on what I should pack?

Thanks

Kristen

Okay. Y’all I just started my liquid diet today. Please tell me this gets better?

Yes. By day 6 you aren't hungry anymore. I have even been making meals for my 6 year old. The food looks good, and I want it, but I am not hungry. So hang in there!

Hi Kristen, GOOD LUCK! Very exciting. I didn't pack anything pre-surgery except for a very loose-fitting pair of sweats. I t-shirt. A helpful tip maybe make sure before you leave for when you get home you had a TV tray or something near your bed/chair where you will be spending much time. Put necessities on it like a tv remote, phone, book, Tissue, a container to spit up in if you need or feel nauseous, I also have a large walking stick to use as leverage to get up. (maybe tie something on it like a bathrobe rope on it for the times you can't reach it. Using any of your stomach/core muscles will take time. Good Luck!

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      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!
