Hello everyone. I am able to go home later today. The gas pain is still here but I started tooting early this morning so it should go away. I feel pretty good but tired today. I walk about 3 rounds of the hall every hour. They just took my IV off so no

i am alive. Surgery done. They told my hubby it went well. I am sore and have horrible gas pains but that is to be expected. I will write more when I feel better. I could not have done this without all of the support on here.

Last day of optifast. It feels so surreal. This is all I have thought about for so long. I have two young sons. I am worried that worst case will happen but just need to get that out of my mind. We are leaving for the hotel in Guelph in about two hours

here I am 3 days from surgery and now all I can think about is food and wanting to eat. Ahhh.

Hello everyone:  Today is day 9 of Opti-fast and my surgery is in 6 days.  I am out of town for work and at an all day meeting with many people - breakfast, snacks, lunch, snacks ... all served - it is a working lunch so we

i am on day 6 of opti. I like it. Tastes good and I am full with no care for food at all. BUT today at Church my husband urged me to find a mint or piece of gum. Just singing he could smell my breath. After dinner I tooted and it was just inhumane. Yuc

Hello there:

 

If you are not having surgery at Guelph then you don't need to worry about this but as many were talking about the premier protein after

I have seen the clock every hour since midnight and have been up since two.  I have the cold sweats, headache and body aches - do you think this is a reaction to the opti fast - maybe my body is detoxing.  Could just be stre

hello everyone. 2 questions. 

My doctor in Windsor said not to worry about vitamins until I follow up with him after my surgery. I don't see him until 3 to 4 weeks after the surgery. I feel like I should take vitamins before that. What do you t

today is day one.  I like both the vanilla and the chocolate.  Have been drinking a lot of decaf tea and water.  I haven't been to the bathroom so much in a long time -- haha.  The clinic did tell me to put Metamucil in my s

They called with a new date for surgery - February 21st - so I now will start opti on the 7th - next Tuesday.  I just cancelled my work trip to Texas for next week .... I am not sure I am strong enough to endure a work trip while starting opti .... hol

I am so excited, nervous, scared, etc, that all I can think about is the surgery.  I am on this site constantly reading.  This is a good thing BUT - I have no focus at work or at home.  I have a lot of work to do to at my "j

Hello everyone.  I met Dr. Bhajani today at 2pm.  My surgery is booked 5 weeks from today - March 6th and I start my opti fast on February 20th for two weeks.  He asked me some questions about my past health, medical conditi

Because I am manic, I called Guelph this morning and asked them if they do the surgeon appointment and the preop the same day - at our surgery class in Windsor they said sometimes they do that when people have far to travel.


leeann73 posted a discussion topic 4 years, 3 months ago

any recent attendance at Guelph to meet the surgeon - just wondering how long after I meet him I will have the pre-op and then surgery

Hello everyone:

 

I had my surgery class on Monday and got a call today to see the surgeon next Monday ... OMG I am freaking out.  I am seeing Dr. Bhoja


leeann73 posted a discussion topic 4 years, 3 months ago

My surgery class is tomorrow.  It has been at the back of my head all week.  I also think I am PMSing.  Every day this week I have thought about the scale, but the more I have been thinking about it, the more I have been eat

In December I had to renew my driver's licence.  I opened the mail today with the new photo.  If I ever had any doubts about getting the surgery, that picture does the trick.  I don't even recognize myself.  I can't wait unt
