Good morning everyone. Just wanted to wish the best of luck to all the bandsters today. My surgery is tomorrow. I have been on Clear Liquids for 3 days and much to my surprise, it hasn't been bad at all. I will check in with you all on Thursday when I get home from the hospital. Keep up the good work!!!:crying:

Good luck to everyone tomorrow!

I went in for my 2 week post op appt. I learned that I have a 10cc band which he normally fills with 3cc during surgery. I got to feel where my port is, but still haven't seen the doctor. My mushies are progressing, so I'm looking forward to some other options. My first fill will be May 19th. I was also excited to learn that the office has later appts on Tuesday nights, so I won't have to take any more time off of work :smile:

Tomorrow will be a month since I took my pictures, so I took them today. I still have to take my measurements. Here they are. My first pictures are on page 5.

Just wanted to say good luck to all the bunnies scheduled for tomorrow. Let us know how you are doing when you can! :smile:

I am 5 days post op and feel great. No pain or anything and I can bend over and move without any problems now. Also the gas has subsided which is so nice!:) My post op visit is tomorrow morning. I am hoping to get the okay to move on to mushies.

With each day that goes by, I am feeling more and more excited about what is to come. It seemed to take so long to finally get the surgery and now it is just amazing to me that this journey is moving along! I am so happy I did this!:w00t:

Thanks for posting the pics Hopeful! You're looking great! Keep up the good work!

I'm almost a week into mushies and am struggling with hunger. I never really felt hungry on the liquid diet, so it was quite unexpected. I met with the dietician today and she suggested that I add Protein Powder to whatever I can ... like cream of wheat for Breakfast, s/f pudding, mashed potatos, etc. Because otherwise my only main source is pureed chicken, and I don't have that until dinner. It makes a lot of sense to me. I need to make it one more week until I get my first fill, then I hope to feel some restriction. I've stayed positive and have been loosing weight even without the restriction, but it's taken willpower and the encouragement of others to help me stay on task.

We can do it!

Hey you guys...glad everyone is doing so well:thumbup:!! Does anyone else have back pain...or any pain that kind of comes the same time every day? I work until 1:00 p.m., by the time I get the kids home and homework going and sit down my back hurts sooooo bad - around 5:00 every day! I've been walking, but it feels good to walk a little, sit a little, about 10 minute intervals.

I know I'm not yet 2 wks post-op so it maybe still gas, but it seems weird it's at the same time! Just wonderin!

8 days post opp and FINALLY starting to feel human again. I was starting to have thought that started with "what the h*ll have a done to myself" but feeling better. I don't get to see my doc again until next week to get the staples out. I wish it wasn't two weeks between seeing the doc. I'm anxious that everything is as it should be.

Tomorrow is the day i get banded. Last night i pigged out and have done so for a week, did anybody over indulge before their surgery? I only have to be on the liquid diet today! Finally after a year of fighting approval and a lifetime of being severly obese i will see the light at the end of the tunnel.

no back pain, just incision pain for me. I hope you feel better!!

Great job hopeful!! Thanks for posting pics!! :thumbup:

I blew it last night, :P I had my first harder than liquids last night at a function - mash potatoes. I was busy talking and watching the kids and engaged at the function that I think I had too much. I didn't get sick but felt over full - like I felt it up to my throat full. ugh then I think i may have had sips of unsweeten tea too soon along with it. I am mentally beating myself worried I did damage. I think it was 2/3 of a cup. Too much for the first time. Lesson learned!!!! I just hope my stomach & lb didnt pay for that mistake. :)

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
