  3. Surgery on Wednesday 10/25, very nervous!

    Hi everyone, thank you for all your thoughtful comments! After a 3.5 hour surgery, I’m finally on the losers bench. Been in a lot of pain today and my left hand has felt like it’s asleep all day (maybe from the position of my IV), but I made it!!! I did 4 laps and have been able to handle small sips of water without any problems. Hoping to get my catheter out first thing in the morning and have something warm to sip as my throat is very dry. I was very anxious this morning but they gave me a nice IV cocktail and as soon as I got scooted on the table the anesthesiologist knocked me out lol. I am in a little bit more pain than I expected, but this is what I wanted and I’d do it over again! I’m going to try to rest, I am super exhausted... I find it so hard to sleep in hospitals!
  4. Surgery on Wednesday 10/25, very nervous!

    I’m very excited even with all my worries. Just can’t wait to get over the surgery hurdle and onto the real journey of a healthy lifestyle and learning what works for me!!
  5. My gastric bypass surgery is scheduled for wednesday and I’m beyond nervous. I’ve played it cool up until now but now it’s really all feeling real and I keep reading horror stories and scaring myself. From strictures to dumping to leaks.... I’m paranoid! Don’t know why I torture myself like this but I do, lol. Also having super mixed emotions about the fact I can’t have solid food for god knows how long... on top of having not eaten anything in two and a half weeks... ahhhh. Anyone in the same boat pre op or is anyone post op who was feeling all of the emotions like me lol! I’d like to hear from you all. I just want everything to go smoothly! I’m a worrier 100000%.
  6. Pre-op macros?

    I'm still in the process of losing pre-op but not quite on the liquid diet yet as I'm waiting for insurance approval to get my surgery date. Up until now I've been doing a ketogenic diet and it's worked well for me, but I know the high fat aspect isn't going to go over well after gastric bypass. I'm trying to adjust my macros to better fit what I'll be eating post op. Right now on my fitness pal I have my goals set to 1242 calories, 25% or 35g fat, 30% or 93g protein and 45% or 140g carbs. Does that seem alright or what should I tweak it? What were your macros pre op and post op? I'm just afraid to start eating carbs again after doing keto and am afraid the carbs will start making me gain. Thanks.
