April 2022 Surgery Buddies



Recommended Posts

My first post… my gastric sleeve date is April 8 and I’m really nervous. I also have Crohns and I’m worried I will have issues with the 3 weeks of slim time.
anyone have good recipes for slim time?
So happy to have found you all!
Nice to meet you, SleeveApril82022. My surgery date is April 5th. My sister has Crohn's and didn't know if she could have the surgery or not. I asked one of the other surgeons in my weight loss clinic if she was cleared to have surgery with Crohn's, and he said it shouldn't be a problem. But, finally hearing from someone who has it too, I can now tell my sister she is good to go on getting the surgery. Have you asked your dietitian about what to eat during slim time?

PurpleAngel73,

I have spoken with a dietitian about what to eat and they said to follow the normal protocol and to call if I had problems.
I was approved for the gastric sleeve so I’m sure your sister would be similar.
I still have to do an endoscopy and another ct scan just to make sure they can manoeuvre around a large cyst I have. I also have PCOS. So keep my in your thoughts for the next few tests!

Pretty worried about the 2 weeks liquid diet prior to surgery. I guess it’s good practice? And ideas on food/drinks to have? Any good tips?

I just purchased a lot of Soup packs, and drink packs from bariatricpal to have stocked and ready to go. I am a quick meal person. I can't stand to take any time prepping meals, or cooking long elaborate Soups.

Lol I am a quick meal type person as well. The clinic I am going to only gave me the option of chocolate or vanilla slim time. But we can add extracts like strawberry or vanilla to make them taste better.

Wow! No flexibility at all? I would assume one would be allowed to at least have clear broths in addition to the Protein Drinks.

I definitely will keep you in my thoughts and prayers [emoji120]. I'm sure you will make it through. You seem determined and I like that in a person who's trying to change themselves for the better. Keep up the great work and I will have a talk with my sister about making a change for her health. Good luck and may God be forever on your side.

Hi! April 19 vsg here! Very nervous about the 2 week pre op diet and managing that while returning to work after 2 years working at home. Wondering how long most of you are taking off from work after your procedure?

      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.
