Oh yes Marianne that's without a doupt my end as well, I never leave the house without my makeup bag lol




On the other hand my nerves are quite tense today, butterflies in my stomach as the day gets closer. I've had a few confirmation calls from the hospital and they didn't neglect to mention that it can be cancelled on the day depending on the covid cases in emergency. I think it just started to sink in that it's really happening.




I'm so hoping that we don't get cancelled again🙏🙏🙏


Fingers crossed for you, Merill. I hope the numbers stay low or go away altogether and you get the procedure.
You made me laugh 😂🤣😂🤣…I go to the beach for two hours and I bring the same amount of stuff as if I was going for a week. My stuff is my stuff.
Keep me posted!

So far so good no cancellation as yet and if I don't get a call on Sunday then I'm all good to go😁

I've sent my son and pet to my daughters house and just doing little things around the house like drenching my plants in Water taking care of other little things here in there I guess this is what they call nesting😄

And tomorrow I will do my personal prep care like manicure and pedicure and get my luggage ready😁😁😁😁

Hi, I’m a little late to this post, but I had a revision SADI on May 2nd. Doing well - just still feeling weak after doing anything though, but pain is minimal. ☺️

Weare on our way. Little nervous but mainly excited. We stay in a hotel tonight. Early morning. They did not tell me to but yesterday and this morning I took colace. It worked for me glad I did not do a laxative. Trying to keep a positive out look

***TMI warning ***

That was so smart!!! I had my VSG on 5/10 and haven't pooped since probably 5/8 and today is 5/14...

Im starting to wonder how much of my post surgery bloat is from that!

Hi, had VSG on 5/10. Didn't feel horrible afterwards but I think the lack of sleep made me feel worse the first few days. First decent night sleep last night changed my outlook tremendously. I'm still super puffy, I'd appreciate that to go down.

I am second night in hospital and feeling shocking. Very nauseous and like you unable to sleep so yes probably feeling worse because of it. I go home today but concerned about leaving.

Meant to add that I have chest and shoulder pain from I assume the gas and it comes and goes. Am welcoming this being over.

Hi hope you are doing well. Can I ask you what a sleeve revision is as I am totally new on here. Does it mean it didn’t work or there was a problem with the first op ? I salute you for going through this again. I am 2 days post op and struggling with the uncomfortable immediate aftermath. Best wishes.

I was worried as well it wasn't until the 6th day after surgery. As my nurse stated you consumed nothing but liquids.

Hi, thanks so much asking! ☺️ I’m doing really well right now. I’m just weak if I do too much - I have to rest in between. Not much energy back yet.

i had a revision from a sleeve to a SADI because I ended up gaining a 100lbs back of the 150lbs that I lost with my VSG. The 100 lb gain was due to depression meds and me getting on a food pity party for 3 years and not coming off of it! Lol

oh, I so hope that you feel better soon! Did you get a VSG? I found the hardest thing there was adjusting to the amounts of Fluid that I could take in. Also, the after effects of the surgery was hard to come back from. Hopefully, you’ll have a turn around soon and start feeling like yourself again! Big hugs!

best wishes!

The best thing for that is a warm heating pad and walking, so you can release the gas. It really helps!

      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.

      😫 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!!

      2. SleeverSk

        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 .
