Tomorrow is my surgery day! I can't sleep I'm so nervous.

Scared but excited.

Same! I anxiously cried myself to sleep for a few hours last night. It's now 6:45am and I'm headed to take my last Hibiclens shower. I gave up on trying to sleep more and figured I'd be sleeping all day post-op anyway. I have to be at the hospital at 11 and surgery time is at 1:20.

Wishing you a smooth surgery and a speedy recovery!! 🤗

Ok, so it's normal? Good luck to you! I have to be at the hospital at 7am. It's a little after 5. I've slept about 3 hours I'm tired but more nervous. So many things are running through my head.

I hope that you are doing well. I know we will both get through this and come out the other side better than ever.

Scared but excited.

Day 5 post op. Feeling pretty good overall. Forgot to take any pain meds before bed last night but slept through and woke up pain free. I'm able to eat thinned out veg Soups & yoghurt up to about 1/2 cups worth. I think the dog might get a small walk today- she'll be very excited!

I'm 8 hours post-op. I also had my gallbladder removed so I'm feeling pretty rough right now. The gas pains are real and I unfortunately am one of the ones plauged by big time nausea. Only was able to walk around once and so far have managed to sip 2oz of Water. I have a great nighttime nurse making all of this bearable.

The surgeon came to see me and turns out I had a 3 for 1 surgery - VSG, gallbladder, and hiatal hernia repair. Makes sense now why my recovery feels so brutal

Rough now, but you are going to feel so much better after you heal up! :)

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
