Having Surgery Tuesday and Having Major Anxiety
Hi, I am having RNY surgery on Tues Feb 23. I am so nervous and having a lot of anxiety about the unknown, I have never had surgery before. I am nervous of the liquid diet and how is it going to make me feel emotional. Allot to process.

Take it day by day. It's scary. I remember feeling how you're feeling. Surprisingly, day of surgery I kept my **** together & my BP was even normal - I thought it was going to be sky high bc of my nerves. I had minimal pain post op.
let's be real.. liquid phase sucks. But it's a phase. You will get through it, and the sweet sweet moment you get a solid is the best feeling.
you're going to do great! Just keep your chin up!
sending you positive vibes and happy thoughts as you embark on this journey!

Learning my new normal, one day at a time.
Just had mine Friday. It went better than I thought. They have been doing this surgery for 20+ years and several a day. You can trust the professionals.
I guess it is today. Cant wait to hear how it went. My gas pain was in a different place than I expected; lower left of my stomach. That pain was hard. Just keep walking as they say.
