September 2022 surgery buddies



Recommended Posts

Thanks ladies. I have great coordinators at the hospital so I was able to text with them today. Fingers crossed we get it figured out tomorrow. The days I want to give up I remember the only person it would truly affect is me. Unless someone’s been fighting this weight battle like the rest of us, they wouldn’t understand how much this surgery means.

Hi, all! I’m so happy these forums exist. I have just put down my deposit for my surgery for a gastric sleeve. I’m having my surgery done in Turkey & the dates are 26th September - 1st October. I’m very nervous but more excited!

I don't have an exact date yet but my surgery team planning end of Sept. I started my journey in April and have been working hard to get rid of some of my old habits. Drinking diet coke was the hardest, but now soda free. I can't just drink Water so I've been drinking crystal light. Breakfast was also I've not really done. Now, I'm faithful every morning even it's just a greek yogurt. Also , throwing the straw away was tough but I keep thinking of how much better things will be. I've been journaling as a request from my dietitian and it had been a good tool for me to see what I need to watch. I've lost 19lbs in a few months which I'm grateful for.


I’m scheduled for surgery on September 13th. Once I finish the diet sodas in my pantry I am cutting myself off for good. I am going to have to find more ways to get Water in because I am terrible about drinking water.

I still continue to drink the sugar free drink mixes and have recently been having Decaf tea. I have problems drinking just Water too.

Thanks, VickySue! My surgery date is 27th September so less than 5 weeks. Have you got your surgery date yet?

Uggg... got a call earlier this week and my surgery team said I have to wait the full 6 months for surgery. So now, it looks like late October. I remain grateful though as I'm blessed to have insurance.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
