I’m the 21st as well. I’m on day 7 of the pre-op diet and have lost 12.5 lbs. I gave up Diet Coke a couple months ago after about a 30 year addiction lol. My grandkids are here this week but I’m doing well so far. Already been postponed twice so I’m ready for this one!

Won't be long now! Are you getting excited or nervous?

Hi everyone,

it's almost time! I'm excited, but exhausted. I think the liquid diet has got to be causing me some fatigue, despite consuming plenty of Protein. Although I have not slept 1 good night since beginning the liquid diet, so maybe that is contributing to the tiredness.

Everyone holding steady and still on course for the 21st?

It went well, thank you! All my paperwork, and my blood work is done. I’m stocked up on everything I think I could possibly need at home. Now I’m going through the house and doing a big deep clean. I’m neither excited or nervous yet…. I almost feel like it won’t happen! I finished all my pre op things back on November 3rd but covid shut down my center and I was told that my surgery would be this month, then next month so many times that it doesn’t feel real! Haha! If you believe in prayer will you say one for me and my surgery that things so well?

Today is the last day of solid food for a while. Tomorrow only liquid. Feeling a little emotional but I know its for the best. For anyone reading this... Please keep me in your prayers, surgeries havent always gone well for me in the past and I'm trying to stay positive. 💜

Surgery went perfect according to the doc, I'm doing great, the gas pain was tolerable. Had to get up and walk a bunch and you learn real quick on what you thought was a sip is not a sip lol ..... Other than that I feel great and I'm happy its overwith.

My VSG was yesterday morning. Went perfectly well. I was pretty groggy yesterday but walked around the hallways a few times and hit my Water goal. Gas pain has been reasonable. My ox-sat is low so I am on oxygen right now. Will go home later!

My VSG revision to GBP went smoothly. Arrived at 8:45 am and went home at 6 pm. I was happy not to stay overnight because it’s hard to sleep and every time you do sleep, the nurses want to wake you up. Unfortunately sleeping at home wasn’t much better. I couldn’t get comfortable. Pain is tolerable, more uncomfortable. Gas seems barely there. I was able to belch a bunch before I left to hospital. Goal today is to get my liquids in.

Hope everyone is else is doing well.

Sorry missed this topic until now. I was a June 21 peep. Sleeve - went very well. Surgery at 11a. Took my first walk around 5p. Was able to stop being dizzy and drop the walker after a few steps. Go discharged yesterday around 2:30p. sleep went really well. Pain is very tolerable without pain killers. Feeling very lucky. But following all the eating, walking, etc. instructions to the letter.

      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.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
