Knowing some of these things could mess me up early post op, I think $15 is probably worth it. To have something that can speak for me in the event that I can’t. Perhaps I see the benefit in it more because I’ve had an event within the last 2 years where I couldn’t speak for myself at a hospital and they definitely did whatever they needed/wanted to figure it out with no consent 😬

I completely understand. You have to do what makes you feel safe and comfortable.

I think it is more of in a pinch of being a medical emergency that these things won't kill you. So, "so what" if you end up getting a dose or two as long as you aren't doing it long term you will be fine.

Indeed. I can't see there's anything about a gastric bypass that would qualify for a medical emergency Bracelet. However of course anyone has the freedom to wear any bracelet they like and I wouldn't dream of arguing.

Whether or not to wear a medical ID is certainly a personal choice, based on need and comfort level, I should think. I don't wear one because I was sleeved, but wear it due to other medical history that would be important for emergency personnel to know if I couldn't tell them myself.

You can also put this information in your phone under medical. I’m not sure if they are actually required to look there. Seems like they would be if you weren’t able to talk for yourself.

I have one for medication allergies. I’m not able to add anything else because I’m out of room!
I bought the Bracelet from someone on Etsy years ago. They normally made bracelets & I told her what I needed. Now that I’ve lost so much weight I can slip it off!

      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 .
