Looking for my December 2022 Surgery Twin

My sleeve was 12/8 and so far so good. I had more discomfort than I thought but I'm happy to say I'm feeling better each and every day. I'm on a liquid diet until Sunday and then I can start incorporating "soft" food and have to be honest, I am really looking forward to it because even though my tummy is full I would like to "physically" eat something.

How is everyone else handling this phase?

I would try to eat sugar free jell-o each day that I was on my liquid diet. It would help me with the need to chew. My sleeve was on 12/2/22 and I'm doing well. I still forget to give myself enough time between bites or sips. Once I started soft foods my weight loss stalled. I'm still a bit sore but I'm mostly fine.

Dec 6th… I didn’t get nervous until 1 hour before surgery but I have no regrets.

Looks like I’m your twin as well. I had my surgery Dec. 5, and I am feeling great! Hope you are as well.

I am having gastric bypass on the 29th as well! I started my liquid diet on Thursday. It hasn't been as tough as I thought it would be, but I do a lot of self talking and keeping my eye on the goal of a healthier life. My surgery will be in Portland. Where are you located?

I had mine yesterday as well! How are you doing? Had pretty bad gas pains last night and only a few today. Mine was done as outpatient.. Went back about 10 and was out of there by 3:30. Water goes down ok some sip and causes pains with others. Looking forward to SF pudding and or yogurt on Saturday!

Hi had my surgery December 19, 2022, I’m 3/4 days post op

I thought you weren’t supposed to be hungry right after surgery?? I’m starving

Im still in the liquid phase 😒 I don’t know if it is just a feeling of missing food, being around family that’s eating or what??

How is everyone doing around the holidays that just had surgery? I’m struggling

      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.
