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!

I always get nervous before surgeries. I think that's pretty common...

My VSG was my very first surgery as an adult other than dental stuff. It's normal to feel this way! I was a wreck!

just remember to breathe!

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.
