I’m having sleeve on Wednesday, June 7 @ 2:15 pm. Keep me in your prayers. Tomorrow I start liquid diet. I’ve been on pre-op diet for two weeks. I found that I love the Fairlife shakes more than the premier shakes. Anyone have good broth recommendations?

Yayy!! You are almost there🤗 I will keep you in my prayers most definitely. Fairlife are my favorite too. Does anyone know where to get the strawberry flavor? And broth I use kettle & fire Bone Broth. I also like the chicken boullions by herbox green container. They have low sodium options too!

Hi guys. I had my bypass yesterday. The pain is tolerable and it is especially nice to have this abdominal binder on. Hope it’s not TMI but I have been having trouble urinating. They actually had to straight cath me last night because I was retaining too much urine. I am still retaining but urinating enough that they were okay with sending me home. So now I’m home and trying to stay hydrated.
They told me sometimes this happens and the bladder is the last thing to wake up. Hope it really wakes up soon.

I do not have the support of my family so you all mean a lot. I have to say, i am very comfortable here healing in peace. I do have my two little kitties mind you 🤣

Happy to hear you are home and well. Try to walk as often as you can, I was told that is most important after surgery. I love kitties, they are the best! They say that people that have kitties or puppies live longer. Enjoy your time home. For me Monday cannot come quick enough! 😀

I’m home now! So far everything is perfectly average. Last night the nurse came in to give me a pill and I ended up chugging some Water for the pill. Oops. That will be the last time I make that mistake😁 I didnt throw up but sure felt like I should. The pain is mostly tolerable. I found reaching for something high was uncomfortable and sitting down I’m having to take a new approach.
I hope y’all are doing your best no matter what stage you are in!

I haven’t found a great broth yet, but I like bullion cubes, seems to have a bit more flavor. I did t know fair life made a strawberry one, maybe check Amazon.

My sleeve surgery is Monday June 5th. I have to be at the hospital by 8:45a. My hunger and food distractions have seemed to subside from anticipation, excitement and fear. Now I’m just a nervous wreck lol. With less than 48 hrs to go I’ve gone through many emotions. I’ve read every post on this thread. Congratulations to all much success, peace, health and love!
I will update on how things went after I’m up. Last weight was on Wednesday 246- can’t wait to get to onderland!

I'm also heading into sleeve surgery tomorrow, and fully empathise... am also just a bunch of nerves and jitters now. Very thankful to have the support here in this thread to ground me. Onwards to surgery!

      🎶🎵 It's the Final Countdown!! 🎵🎶
      It's finally here!! My last day with a "normal" digestive system. Tomorrow morning I go in at 10:15am to check in, go through all the pre-flight checks (IV, vitals, sign consents, talk to anesthesia and my surgeon, etc), then into the OR I go! 
      This process has taken what seems like forever. Way back in April of 2022, I saw a general surgeon to have a Nissen Fundoplication to deal with my (horrible!!) reflux and repair my hiatal hernia. Problem was....my weight made it so there would be a high risk of both failure after a couple years and potential complications. He then suggested I see a bariatric surgeon (which was the first time anyone had ever made that suggestion. 
      So off I went to see bariatrics. From the first appointment, Dr. Beekley was nothing but supportive. He never once belittled me over my weight, or made me feel like I was making excuses for my health. The entire team has been awesome. They keep up with me in myChart, letting me know what Pre-op clearances I needed, or if anything extra was needed from other providers (which, given all my health issues, there was always something extra that was needed lol). 
      But all that hoop jumping was worth it. Now I'm packing my bag and getting ready to have my life completely changed for the better. While I may be increasingly nervous the closer I get to that OR, I'm also excited beyond belief. I've been stuck in this messed up body for entirely too long, and I can't wait to start leaving it behind and meet the woman I know is inside.

      I weighed 199 pounds (90 kg) this morning! I felt accomplished and happy, and celebrated by going to the gym to lift some weights. Hoping everyone else out there is making progress, whether you are pre- or post-op 😊
      Today is 7 weeks and two days post-op for me. I've been through two stalls already, but I am sticking to the program. I want long-term success from all of the sacrifice and pain. You all know I mean!
