April 2022 Surgery Buddies



Recommended Posts

I received a call today and my gastric bypass surgery is April 6th. It felt like it was taking forever and now that I have a date I am really nervous. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have pre-surgery appointment on March 22nd and assume I will get all the information that day.

The weeks are flying by!

Sorry I have been so quiet... Uni is keeping me busy!... My surgery date is now 2nd April. The closer the date gets the more excited/nervous I get.

They are doing surgery on a Saturday? Wow, that’s good. Best of luck to you. Mine is just a couple of days later on the 4th.

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.

I'm in Amarillo with Dr. Blue Schniederjan from Panhandle Weight Loss Clinic. Yes, can't wait until my surgery date. I could have gotten mine done earlier too, but I had to pass my cardiac test also. I had blood clots, but I finally passed the test and got my surgery date. So excited. Sorry you had to postpone yours. But, now I have a fellow Texan bariatric buddy that we can talk to going through this together. It will get here sooner than we think.

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!

My two weeks diet just consists of 1st week: 1 shake for breakfast; 3 healthy Snacks and 2 high Protein and low carb meals for lunch and dinner. 2nd week: two shakes for Breakfast and lunch 3 healthy snacks and 1 high protein and low carb for dinner.

Had my call with the pre op nurse today! 22 days and counting.

She gave me information about what will happen at my f2f pre op assessment and some more information about what happens on the day. I'll be told 24-48hrs before what time to be at the hospital for.

My LRD starts on the 18th but im going to start it early.. too late to start it today so will be starting it tomorrow.

The nerves have kicked in and I'm now really nervous - not so much about the operation itself but the first few days post op.... I kind of feel like I did when I was pregnant with my first. I know its going to hurt... but how much and just what that pain will be like will only be known once I'm experiencing it. xx

Good luck, you can do this! My liquid diet starts on the 21st. I’ve been trying to ease my way into it. Making small changes and reducing my calorie intake each week before it starts. That way it’s not such a shock to my system. I wouldn’t want to do the actual diet for more than 2 weeks though. That is going to be so hard in itself. Looking forward to hearing how you do. My surgery is just a few days after yours.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
