Just had my pre- anesthesia appointment and asked about possible postponing. As of now if it it scheduled for Jan they are proceeding but unfortunately things can change. So it’s like we are all in limbo and hoping it doesn’t get cancelled at the last minute.

Yes, limbo. Thats the word I've beeen looking for. We're all tough Cookies for making it through these delays. I wonder what the surgery wait is for new patients. It seems they just keep getting more and more backed up.

12th is my magic number. The only thing that i'm nervous about is that maybe the weight loss wont be so fast because of my everyday meds.

I am on bipolar meds which are notorious to interfere with weight loss. I have lost slow but steady and I am about ten pounds from goal.

To ShoppGirl: omg, that's so good to hear. I have something similar so i am so relieved that it works with those meds.

Fly out to Vegas on the January 7th. Surgery is on the 11th. Anyone else going to Las Vegas for their surgery that week? I'll be the fat guy. You can't miss me. ;-)

I'm Jan 12th too! Super excited but nervous too. Started my preop diet on Monday and this is so hard during the holidays

I was lucky enough to start my preop today (Christmas). My family each made a favorite appetizer and we spent the day together. I had to leave them today because I couldn't be around all of the food today. They are very supportive and understand. Just about to make my second shake.

Stay strong! We've got this.

      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 .
