February 2022 Surgery Buddies



Recommended Posts

I don't know when my surgery date is yet, but I have a TNE appointment today. Then next week I get to talk with my dietitian and nurse practitioner and then my cardiologist. Hopefully after all of those appointments, I will get to get my surgery date. Hopefully at the end of January beginning of February. 😁💜

My date is on Feb 3rd, I’m in Toronto and they have been cancelling non urgent surgeries now I’m scared mine will be postponed. Fingers crossed, I’ve been on the Optifast for the last week and really don’t want to have to do it all over again.

My surgery, gastric bypass from sleeve is set for February 2. This is the third date. First delay due to schedule conflict for Dr and hospital, second delay because my husband had Covid and so now my fingers are crossed for February 2, 2022. Best of luck and positive thoughts for everyone on this journey!

Hey all! I'm also scheduled for Feb 3rd and I'm getting the sleeve here in the Los Angeles area. I started this process back in August, and now that I'm weeks away, it's a little overwhelming. I'm mostly really excited, so I'll focus on that emotion as much as possible.

I am also scheduled for the sleeve on February 3 in Georgia. My pre-op diet will begin on the 20th, so right now I am working on tracking Protein, sipping Water all day, and trying to eliminate Diet Coke. That has been much harder than I anticipated! I am excited for everyone!

I am off caffeine completely now. Headaches from the caffeine withdrawal are gone too. This weekend I stop all sweets. These are usually treats. I do have a big sweet tooth so I am not looking forward to this one. I might start adding Protein Shakes to get around the no sweet rule hahaha



@MimmyMim it is helpful to start tracking early so you get into good habits now. I am going to try starting that too. I am a bit nervous about sipping Water instead of guzzling it down like I do now.


How is everyone doing?

I'm lucky with the caffeine. Just a unsweet iced tea a couple times a week. Stopped those this week. Glad that's not permanent! It's nice to have something to drink besides Water since I don't like coffee of any kind.

Nutritionist recommended Unjury chicken Soup whey Protein Powder to make broth. Apparently the taste is amazing and the extra Protein makes it more filling. You can only order it on the UNJURY website.

I like Premiere Protien shakes, Optimum Whey Protien powders and ProtienO2 water. Concerned I won't be able to all the Protien I need all the time, so I also bought some unflavored Optimum Whey Protien powder to add to food. Nutritionist recommended whey Protien when using powders. You can get the Optimum and ProtienO2 from Amazon. I used Subscribe and Save to get up to 15% off.

I also bought a highly-rated bariatric cookbook by Sarah Kent ($10 on Amazon). It helped me feel more optimistic about food post-recovery. I'm going to try some of the recipes before surgery to know what I like now and not when I'm hangry.

One question for everyone...you going to use a post-surgery abdominal binder? Getting very mixed messages about those.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
