Going in tomorrow!!!



Recommended Posts

My surgery is tomorrow morning and I don't have much more to say other than I am both extremely nervous (is this the right thing to do? How will it effect me, as it seems to effect everyone differently?) and excited!

That is all. 😊

Just keep thinking of all the great things your looking forward to being able to do bc you will be doing them soon! Wishing you the best and much success!

Hope it went really well for you LouLou and welcome to your new life!

You may feel rubbish for a while but hopefully just a short time, and I cannot tell you how glad you will be then that you did it!

Thanks, Spinoza. I'm still in the hospital, where one of my nurses is from Ireland!!! Dublin, nonetheless.

More later: it's not easy typing in this position and all of these cords n' such. Just wanted to thank you for checking in on me.

Sounds like you're in good (Irish!) hands. I hope you're getting over the surgery. First few days can be really tough. I'm 15 days out and eating smooth oatmeal and apple sauce for the first time - it tastes like filet mignon and bearnaise sauce (not literally).

      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 .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
