VSG scheduled 6/8/22

I didn’t really need much. I did purchase a long phone charger cord for the hospital on Amazon. Also if you don’t have a blender you may want it for puree phase (depends on if you are the type of person that has consistency issues with food-I do so I couldn’t eat blended food). I did find the disposable cups handy from Amazon that are 2 oz with lids. Made it easier to measure and store food early out. The hospital gave me a stomach binder but some people say that they purchase those online. You will definitely want a few Protein Shakes (a variety) on hand for the full liquid phase but don’t stock up too much cause our tastes change sometimes especially for sweet stuff post surgery.

blender if you don't have one. food scale is very helpful the first few months (I still use mine occasionally, but I used it all the time the first year post-op)

Chapstick of some sort and your hairbrush. My mouth was so dry the first day and night until I could drink something my lips were dry and cracked I was so glad I had my lip balm it made a world of difference that’s for the hospital I would get a food scale and a food processor I also got some 1 cup Pyrex bowls with lids comes in super handy

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
