February 2022 Surgery Buddies



Recommended Posts

My surgery date is 02/24. I started my preop diet on 2/10, well I fumbled the first 2 days with one meal but followed everything else (protein drinks etc). After that I’ve been on track since. I think I was honestly having a hard time to adjust those first 2 days,
I felt so empty not being able to consume food but I actually feel amazing now on this Pre op diet journey. I’m nervous about the actual surgery operation but I’m ready for the change and outcome! I’ve struggled with weight my entire life and like I tell people all the time it’s not as easy for everyone to lose as everyone’s body is different also with genetics coming into play. Good luck everyone we got this!!

You got it! I'm in the hospital now, day after surgery. The worst pain I feel is a sore throat and gas chest pain. Stomach is okay. I just wish I could cough to get the phlegm out lol

It's really not so bad! I'm confident the recovery period will take no more than 5 days.

Stay strong everyone. We can do it!

My surgery is also scheduled for 2/24. Pre-op diet for me starts this Thursday. I’m so tired of yo-yo dieting, fasting, low carb, high carb, low fat, Keto, etc. Getting ready for a new start! Good luck for surgery. You got this. We got this!


Hey surgery twin :)!! We got this! I’ll be sure to check up on you the day of!! I’ve tried everything as well; Keto, low fat, low carb, etc and they would just make me less motivated because I wouldn’t see much weight loss. Due to trying to prevent hereditary issues, I need this push! New beginnings are coming, good luck on surgery!!

I had surgery yesterday. Slept half the day afterwards. Gas bubble in chest, but it’s ok. Incisions hurt but it’s ok. Incisions hurt but not terribly. They’re giving me norco for that. Gave me some other meds in Iv to help with gas.

Good morning, in pre-op. Made it through the 2 weeks of clear liquids. Went from 270 to 255 during the time. Look forward to getting my pre-weight before weight loss become a problem. So glad to be part of this group. I know I’m not alone. May God bless us all.

I’m one week post op and feeling good. I’m shocked I feel so well. A little sore but I love the scale. Started my pre op diet at 261. I’m now 236. No more back pains.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
