February 2022 Surgery Buddies



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! I’m getting the sleeve on Feb. 1 - just 6 days away. I’ve been on the pre-op diet for just over a week, and I lost 10 pounds on it so far. I’m not having hunger pains, but I do have some extra fatigue. I just try to remind myself that this is a temporary stage on the path to greater health and wellness. Good luck to everyone on this journey!

February 28th here! Atlanta Georgia. I started this journey July 2021 @330. I finished my requirements by October, now at 304lbs. Labs, EKG, Insurance approval all good thank the Good Lord above. I have advanced Osteoarthritis so I need to lose some weight before they’ll do any knee surgeries on me. So now I’m just waiting for the day to come. My surgeons preop is 2/8.

I’m scheduled for 2/7/22 here in Texas. My doctor doesn’t require the pre-op diet. My hubby just had his sleeve done in November and he is down 50 lbs. I’m super excited!

I'm in Arizona and I'm scheduled for Feb 14! My surgeon requires a pre-op diet. 3-4 shakes a day, but can also have SF pudding, Jello, and popsicles, low-fat greek yogurt, cottage cheese, and a few other items. So I think I'll be alright. I start that on Monday, which is also when I go in for pre-op testing

We really are surgery twins! I am just outside of Atlanta and am scheduled for surgery 2/3. (That is assuming Anthem and Northside can figure out their differences by then.). I finished my requirements in November. I am in day 8 of a liquid diet and and down to 303. My highest weight was 330 this summer; 316 when I saw the surgeon in October; and 312 at the start of the liquid diet. Good luck to you!

My surgery is next week and I cheated a few days 😩😩


Just keep trying I know it is hard. I am also on the liquid diet my surgery is on Feb 7th. I have thought about cheating so much I see some people are allowed chicken breast so I was going to have a chicken breast. Technically it’s cheating for me because I should be doing all liquids but some people can have it. I haven’t had it but I sure keep thinking about it .

If you can find Fairlife chocolate Protein Shakes or salted caramel. The chocolate tastes like Yoo-hoo and the salted caramel tastes like melted vanilla ice cream with a hint of caramel. 150 cal and 30 gr Protein in 11.5 oz bottle. By far the best tasting shakes on the market. Get

      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.
