You'll do fine. Did you get a surgery date yet? Or still working through insurance requirements?

Nothing to worry about. The surgery is very common and very safe. I have not heard very many people at all who regret doing it. I wish I did it years earlier.

I always think being prepared for something makes the event less daunting. I read an great number of these posts going back years. All the information I needed is in them and they calmed my nerves no end. There is so much knowledge on here and no criticism. Good luck on your journey

I watched all the YouTube videos I could concerning the by-pass leading up to the surgery. In hind sight they were often "worst case scenarios". I am thankful for that because it let me absorb the possibilities. Luckily, I didnt have any of those issues. I can tell you, I was amazed when I woke up from surgery and my only complaint was a sore throat. I wish you the best on your journey.

Had my surgery this past Friday the 19th. Only issue is getting rid of the Co2 gas they blow you up with to do the surgery. Slow to get rid of it as it is not gas inside the digestive track. Toughest part is adjusting to only liquids these past few days and the small amounts. You’ll do fine.

      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 🥲

      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.
