Looking for a November surgery pal



Recommended Posts

Hi,
I’m going have my surgery in less than two weeks November 7 - looking for a few pals with the same surgery date or month. I’m going to have the bypass.

Hi! I am having my bypass on 11/4. Very nervous & very excited. Looking forward to a new, healthier life. I am one week into my liquid pre-op diet, and I have to admit, I am struggling. food that I don't even like is looking real appetizing right now! Lol

@Penthesylaya - I totally understand how you’re feeling. I feel since I’ve received the approval I’m trying to eat all these foods that honestly not even interested in eating that just knowing that it might be my last time eating them in a while. I’m totally nervous too I start my liquids on the 11/1 - here’s to us

Yes. 3 Protein Shakes and a 4 oz Protein meal (steak,chicken, etc) plus veggies. And of course the suger-free Jello and popsicles, and a lot of Water. Finished Day 4 today with no problems except the first day kind of felt dizzy/tired. To me it is very similiar to the many diets that I have experienced before so it is not that big of a deal for me. I also got pretty good in the past with intermittent fasting so I am holding off on my 1st shake until around noon. As with many of us, we are experts in losing weight but terrible at maintaining that loss.

I am more concerned about the initial post-op phase diet so focusing on preparing mentally as well as getting my supplies.

I am going into this with optimism. I greatly benefited being prepared and looking forward to the positive results last year when I had my Knee replaced. I am taking that same approach to this surgery.

Hoping all have a successful journey!

@old Salt - that’s the same way how I’m feeling. 😧it’s the postop I’m more nervous scared I may make a mistake or something. I’ve been trying to purchase as many Soups and Protein Shakes as possible and also make sure I have the right Vitamins. and staying away from drinking with a straw and waiting to eat 30 minutes before & after I drink something. I’m so nervous. I start my liquid diet on the 1st.

@Melissa56 - me too I only really have to do two days of liquids but I decided to start on the first because I have a friend who did the surgery and she said that it helped her to do it a week before.

I believe if you have a pre-op time schedule to go by it will help. I've attached a copy of a sample schedule they provided me for Week 1 & 2. I was told that 4 oz will take about about 15 min. to drink. Maybe some of these folk who have alreay passed this phase can chirp in.

How many Vitamins do they have you taking the first 2 weeks? All I am required is the chewable Bariatrc Multivitamin 4 times a day and a sublingual B12 over the counter 1 time a day.

A November to Remember!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
