Surgery at 10:20 today. Leaving for the hospital in about 90 minutes.
Positive thoughts, prayers greatly appreciated. I’m having gallbladder removed, hernia repair, RNY.
Best wishes and good luck to everyone who went yesterday, who is going today, and who is anywhere on this path.
❤️

Congrats I am sure it will all go well.

@jessica1024 I was in the same boat as you. I had my surgery June 2. I worried for no reason honestly. I was also thinking about being hungry in front of food and preparing food for the kids but the cool thing is you don’t get hungry as we think we will.

Hi June buddies! I’m excited I found this group! I had my surgery June 2nd.
The outcome is not as scary as we think it is.

Went for my pre-op today, surgery date is June 7th. I'm so ready for this surgery - just nervous about the recovery time.

My surgery is out-patient because of covid. Has anyone here been released the same day? How was your experience?

Hey, I just had my surgery on the 7th too. The first day I don't remember anything outside of me being rolled in the OR then waking up in my hospital room. But today I feel great. No pain. I'm walking around,sipping on fluids. Going home tomorrow. My surgeon was awesome. I had a very good experience. I'm just looking at this as a rebirth. We got this. Be blessed.

Hope you guys don't think I'm a creeper but I want to follow with you guys since our surgery days are the same !😊

Not at all! I hope we all do amazing. I have two weeks until I fly to San Antonio. It's getting a bit real at this point.

Hi guys! I did my surgery yesterday. All went well, no complications so far. I was back home in 3 hours! The only problem I have so far is horrible heart burn. It is so horrible that it hurts to take my crushed meds and even drink Water. Has anyone has this feeling?

I did not have this issue, but they also prescribed me sucralfate to take before meals and protonix twice a day. Are you taking anything for gerd?

I’m a week out from surgery and just wanted to share my progress. I’ve lost 9 lbs since my surgery date, which makes sense since I’m eating less than 400 calories a day! It’s definitely easier on this side than it was on the pre-op side, since my body literally cannot eat the things it used to. It’s been an adjustment getting used to the physical limitations and sensations that come along with something as simple as taking a single pill, but seeing quick weight loss is very rewarding. I’m still on full liquids, but I switch to soft foods on Sunday, and I cannot wait to have an egg!
