September surgery buddies



Recommended Posts

Hi guys! My name is Samantha and I am new to the site. My sleeve surgery is scheduled for September 12,2022! I am excited and nervous at the same time! My support system is kind of lacking due to no significant other and one child being away at college. The only one left with me is my wild child and there is no telling how much help she will be! I say that with the most love possible. She is amazing but tends to act before thinking🤣 So who wants to saddle up together and help support each other through this???

Hi Samantha,

I have scheduled my surgery date for September 19, 2022 with Dr, Shillingford. I am nervous but glad its scheduled and will be done. What I worry about most is the pain afterwards and the inability to eat. I hate throwing up and fear that most. Please let me know how your surgery goes and I will for sure update you on my as well. We got this!!

Greetings,

Kim from central Georgia - I am going to have VSG surgery late September or early October per my surgeon yesterday.

I understand what you are saying about lack of support! Struggling a built with the reality of my support network right now. Adding stress! It’s tough to know you will be vulnerable and be unsure of who to turn to.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
