Actually, I am scheduled for the 13th as well. Nerves have started to get to me but I jumped on here read through old posts of others getting thru it. Really trying to put the head down and do this, not get too freaked out and bail

I'm scheduled for a gastric sleeve on June 10th and so happy to be apart of this group. I'm so nervous and my addict brain is a such a piece of ****, trying to convince me I don't need the surgery, I will lose the weight, the whole nine. This **** is so real.

June 11th. Anyone else struggling with the no food 14 days before?

Today is day 2 of the liquid diet. I was fine until my family had dinner. I decided to have a shake, and stay in the same room. It was a struggle. But we’re going to struggle with similar types of choices after surgery too, at least that’s what I kept telling myself.

Hello! First time in this forum, so glad I found it! I am scheduled for gastric sleeve surgery on June 14, and am finishing day 3 of the Liquid Protein diet. So far, so good - tbh, I’m amazed at the energy I have. Altho talk to me on day 6 or 7 and I might change my tune lol

Also a first time poster. Booked in for a gastric sleeve on Jun 13th. I couldn't be more nervous! I have a real hard time telling people outside of my immediate family as I have felt embarrassed and ashamed I've let myself get to this point. On the pre-op diet now, and the first 2-3 days were really tough. 9 days out from surgery I am coping with the diet much better now.

My surgery is scheduled for June 20th! I'm currently in my preop diet but it is very modified. I only have to replace 1 meal with a Protein Shake and the rest of the meals consist of 1/2 cup lean Protein and unlimited non starchy vegetables. Mine is modified b/c my BMI is not as high. Struggling with the dinner meal but trying to push through.

Whelp, now I'm so terrified about the surgery on Monday that I am psyching myself out thinking what if I die during surgery? What about my husband and our three young daughters? I'm thinking this is my addict brain trying any which way to prevent me from having this surgery, but there are risks. My doctor assigned a video for me to watch about gastric sleeve procedures, including benefits, complications, expectations, and 11 instances that the patient is at risk of death.

So now I'm scared. I'm gonna talk to my Mom who had gastric bypass decades ago to try to chill me out, but anyone out there can calm my fears a bit. I'm also scared because I had some chicken breast and bunless cheeseburger, I'm putting myself at risk of death. Oh this cycle of nonsensical what-ifs is driving me mental!! Lol 😆 🤣 😂

Hi I'm new. I'm scheduled for this Thursday the 6th. At first I was very excited, now I'm scared and having second thoughts. Is anyone else feeling this way?

You're definitely not alone with this feeling. This is the reason why it took me so long to make a decision to do the surgery in the first place. Our kids depend on us so much, but we need to remember why we are doing this and that we are getting healthy for us and them.

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
