Recommended Posts

Congrats!! I’m 4/19 in the NYC suburbs. Curious what they told you about how long it will take you to feel comfortable enough to fly home after surgery?

Hi! I signed up for the VSG on April 26th but recently decided to switch to the gastric bypass due to long-standing GERD.

Now I’m impatiently waiting! I’m also doing it in Mexico (Tijuana) due to self-pay with bmi <35.

Hey Y'all!

I'm having the SADI/SIPS (duodenal switch variant) on 4/4/22! It was originally scheduled for 2/28, but I couldn't get the cardiac clearance tests in time. So, next available was 4/4. I'm a bit bummed about how long I have to wait, but I've come to realize it is a great opportunity for me to practice all of the new habits I need to acquire - such as: sipping (I'm using a shot glass to drink Water so that I know what a 'sip' feels like in my mouth.), eating itty bitty bites, exercising a bit, getting into taking the Multivitamins routine, and testing different products for the clear liquid week following surgery, etc.

Just by way of stats - 58 year old female Texan who needs to lose 140lbs.

Hello everyone, I just got told today my duodenal switch surgery is April 5th. I finally got my surgery date. It may be a while. But it will be here before I know it. My high Protein low carb diet starts March 22nd. Can't wait to get started. Can't wait to get to know all of you.

I'm scheduled for the same (SADI/SIPS) surgery the day before you! And, fellow Texan, I see! Where are you in Texas, Sherie? I'm in the Austin Area.

Are you all on a 2 week liquid date prior to surgery? That’s my surgeons plan and I’m so dreading it. But it will be good practice!

It’s tiered based on bmi.

I think I’d cheat if I was required to be on a clear liquid diet for weeks. I need queso dip to function 😭🤣😂

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
