March 2024 Surgery Buddies!



Recommended Posts

3.27 is my surgery date for VSG! I'm excited to get my life back and to be a more active and healthier version of me for my kids. I am blessed to work for a company that offers good insurance as well as SurgeryPlus so my entire procedure is covered.

My surgery went well. I also had hiatal hernia repair. I was an outpatient and had little pain after coming out of anesthesia, was able to keep Water down and walked....gas pains were mostly non existent. Currently having mild pain, due to soreness from hernia repair. liquids going down well, ready for pureed foods. I have my two week post op on Wednesday 3/20. I lost 19 lbs in my two week full liquid pre op diet and 6lbs down from surgery, so a total of 25 lbs.

Great news that you're doing well. Congratulations on having the surgery behind you! My surgery is scheduled for 3/18 & the Dr will be fixing a hiatal hernia as well for me. It's nice to know other people going through similar things. Love to hear how your healing and progress continue.

I was March 13 and everyday it’s getting easier and less painful but man it’s harder for only having liquids lol so many food commercials 3 days till I’m allowed full liquid and can have my favorite Protein Shake.

Me too Lostmom. I was in surgery on the 13th. Your team has you on Clear Liquids longer than mine did. I was clear liquids the day before through the two days after surgery, so I moved on to full liquids yesterday (Saturday). And I agree about the pain. It's almost non-existent for me aside from the gas (which is also getting better). I do crave real food when I'm hungry but as soon as I'm full from my 4 oz. of Protein Shake, those cravings subside. Keep us updated on how things are going. I like the idea of a, "surgery twin".

Hello, my gastric sleeve is scheduled for March 19th. I have my pre-surgery ekg, xray, and about a million vials of blood from all the tests I saw ordered in MyChart tomorrow.

This is my third attempt in 8 years to get this surgery, and my husband's job change finally got an insurance that will do it, and now it's suddenly very real. It's a weird roller coaster in my head.

Ahh, does this make us "re-birth day twins"? Lol. Mine is the same day (have to be at the hospital in 12 hours -- and the nervous-excitement is kicking in)

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
