February 2024 Surgery Buddies?



Recommended Posts

I need help setting up things on here. I just posted my first post yesterday. I am unable to enter any of my stats (starting weight, etc). Also, I see people put a basically a ruler down below their post showing the weight loss. How do you do all of this?

Hiya! For me when I created my account it asked me to fill in my profile. Have you tried clicking on your profile name up at the top right, there is an arrow. The ruler is under "my tickers". I'm guessing that the profile information can be filled in under "profile". At least that might be a starting point!

I’m having surgery on Feb 8. Started my very restrictive pre op diet. It’s actually not as bad as I thought it might be. However I am experiencing tiredness and low blood pressure. I read on another post to take B12 to help with energy so I just did that today. Good luck to everyone

I'm on a two week liquid diet before my Feb 7th surgery. What's your restrictions? Ask your doctor about taking Multivitamins. I'm able to even on the liquid diet. But other doctors might before restive.

When I update my profile, it only asks a couple of questions, and then I have to save it. On my profile, I can see the surgery information, but it doesn't allow me to enter any information.

Hey I’m at the same place you are my surgery is the 8th. I too experienced tiredness. I read on another post to take B12 and it worked! I have energy and I’m not constantly tired. My diet allows me to have oatmeal so I use that as my “treat”. I’ve also realized I can strain my Soup and add high concentrate Bone Broth 20 Grams of Protein that is working. Oh also Gatorade Protein Drink helps me too. It is challenging but I’m not hungry as long as I eat every 2 hours n here’s to us!!

Near the top menu bar there's a circle with your avatar, username, and a down arrow. Click the down arrow. Look down past the content area to the settings section. If you select "my surgery" from this list, you can update your dates, weight, goals, etc. If you select "my tickers" you can create a ticker to count down to your surgery date or to track your weight loss. To get the ticker you make to show up in your signature, you have to select that option (I think it's in the last step) as the default is for it not to show up. There is also html code if you want to add it to a blog or something similar.

I have a total of 4 weeks preop diet. The first 3 weeks, daily, I could have 2 Protein Shakes, 2 low cal, low fat, low carb Snacks, 3 oz of lean Protein, and one cup of non starchy vegetables. Also at least 64 oz Water. I lost 22 lbs. this last week I can have 5 protein shakes and at least 64 oz water. I’m on day two of that and I have been very weak, shaky, and sometimes nauseous today. Hoping for a better day tomorrow!

      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.
