Hey all,

Wondering if anyone can provide me with some specific info. I know at the one month check in (group session) they showed us some slides about exercise really quickly. BUT I can't remember what is ok when.

6 weeks out now, real

I am one month post-opp and am eager to get started with something more than walking. At my one month check in the nurse mentioned that we are still healing and to take it very slow.

I am thinking about starting a swimming program. I have a nu

2 Weeks out and I am starting work again today. I am feeling great. If I didn't know I had surgery I don't think I would know.

Also super excited about starting purees. What was your fav?

Hi all,

I am a fresh newbie - one week since surgery! Was wondering if you could talk to me about the rate of loss you experienced.

I had my surgery on Friday at 3pm and weighed in at 227.0 - this morning I weighed in at 218.0. I am th

Hi all - checking in with a post-op update. Surgery was on Friday at 2pm with Dr. Penner at TWH. It went great. I woke up feeling like I was on fire though drenched in sweat. The nurses packed me with ice to cool me down. That was very unexpected.

Surgery is now two days away and I am feeling unsure about who I need when and where. Did a family member stay with you overnight? Was it required?

I know most people say they are really sleepy and just want to rest. As a mom of two young kids

Hi all - getting ready for surgery on Friday and am stocking up on supplies. Can anyone recommend a protein brand that is 20-30g protein/5g or less of carbs per serving? To make it even harder would love one that isn't milky. More like a fruity or ligh

Made it through the first 7 days of Opti - down 6 lbs. Finally not feeling super hungry. Trying to work through the anxiety of surgery next Friday but feeling really ready.

Anyone else having surgery at TWH on Friday the 15th?


SKT posted a discussion topic 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Talk to me about post op exercise. What did you do? When did you start? What is a no-no?

I have a daily yoga practice that is key to my sanity and I am worried about not doing it for 6+ weeks. I will be walking but beyond that wondering what wo

Today is the first day of Opti (2 weeks) and I have to say it isn't as nasty as I had thought it would be. Getting pretty excited. My pre-admission appointment at TWH was on Monday and that went really well too. I met someone who has been working throu

Super excited - talked to the nurse this morning and I have my surgery booked for Sept 15th. Feels so real now.

For those of you on the other side...are there anythings you wish you did before surgery? Or things you didn't need? Packing items,

Had my last appointment today with psyc and it was easy breezy. I meet the surgeon next week and should be in the clear. I did learn that they are booking surgery in Nov/Dec now so still a long wait.

Anyone else in the same boat?

Hi,

I just had a my second cancellation - again really short notice. Appointment was tomorrow at 11 and they just called and left a message.

UGH - TWH

Just venting...

Just got a letter in the mail with my surgeon consult booked July 7th. Is this the final appointment?

Hi all!

I finished my nutrition class today and it was great. Did anyone else feel like WHAT THE HECK AM I GOING TO EAT?

I mean I know what I am going to eat but so many restrictions and changes.

Biggest for me:

Hi all - has anyone had success with a binder following their laparoscopic surgery? Wondering if there are benefits even when not going the "open" route? I wore one after the non c-section birth of my kids and it made me feel much more together. 


SKT posted a discussion topic 8 months, 4 weeks ago

Finished my Nurse and Social Worker appointments this week. Was really easy and they are SO nice! Have my Nutrition Class next month and then Psych & Dietician May/June. 

So hopefully it will keep going smoothly.

Hi all,

Had my orientation today and am feeling much better about things. Those of you who told me that were totally correct. I have my first two appointments booked in May and my Nutrition class in June. So things are moving along well! 


SKT posted a discussion topic 9 months, 3 weeks ago

So curious about timing.

I met with my endocrinologist early Nov and have my orientation on Feb 13. Wondering how long from referral to surgery is typical at TWH.

Thanks in advance!
