I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..
I was petrified just as I went into the o r.
I was getting preped and I started to cry I tried to hide it.
I dunno if anyone saw it cause the next thing I knew is I was waking up.
Even after I was like omfg plz tell me this was the right decision.
And now I know for sure that I made the right choice.
Your going to go through depression it's normal.
You sent your entire body into shock you messed with a "main" organ and your body dont know what the think lol.
Kinda like having a baby your depressed after and with the gbs you cant eat right away alot of us have to still feed our familys and it's not easy on our emotions.
I still have a issue wiith cooking meals cause I am not hungry enough to eat yet but my daughter thinks she is starving lol.
The emotions are normal that would be why they have to be sure you can pass a psycological evaluation.......
Me too, it's a huge emotional roller coaster. Hang in there, we're here for you!.
The first 3 months were a roller coaster for me. I finally figured out it was hormonal - fat stores estrogen and I was shedding it like crazy. At 47, the.
Launched me headlong into perimenopause. A trip to the gynocologist, a new IUD with a different mix of hormones and a med adjustment got me back on track...
OMG I am so glad I read this post because I had a moment of whining yesterday and I even felt bad for posting it..
But YES I am pre-op and now that the.
Date is approaching (pretty fast) I am such a cry baby...I am normally an emotional person but sissy la-la...is not me..
But here lately I can't stop myself from.
...but last night I surrendered to my fear and gave it to GOD because I know he will take care of me...
Ah thankyou all for your replys.they have helped no end.yes it hard the first few weeks. I as ok on free fluids but am having truble with milk and fish it sits heavy then I loose it. I am concerned I am not meeting my protein requirement,any ideas anyone what you tried,..
I was so emotional the first few weeks. It does get better. Hang in there and you will make it...
I was emotional. Before for sure...nervous and scared. However, today, I've been super UBER emotional. what is up with that? I can't even blame it on "that time of the month". Watching the.
For haiti event and I can't stop blubbering. Watched sponge bob square pants and I had the same reaction.....I'm making myself sick..
I just wish I could STOP.
And obsessing over the possibilities of complications and focus on the positive outcome..
I haven't been THIS emotional since being in a bad relationship 11 YEARS ago....everything makes me cry/.
Having a nervous kid and equally nervous sister around means I can't even enjoy my cries....when really maybe I need to just cry it out as LOUD as possible..
IDK maybe I'll go for a drive alone today and just let it all out because whether I want to cry or not...I AM!.
Man and this is only day 5 pre-op....wtf am I going to be like next week?.
Geesh this is 1 helluva bumpy ride.......
Hi it me again. I forgot to ask did anyone get tearful and bit scared about the op after hoping it all goes ok.i think the media puts a lot of bad [ress about this.
And when I ws readmitted last week with dehydration I got real frightened and wondered what I had done to myself and could not stop.
But felt better for a good cry,i am ok but think it is just fear of the u[nknown,anyone else had ups and downs emotionally.i also get bit stingins feeling sometimes near my naval is that normal?i have lost20 kg so far so that great and already of diabetic meds. take care,..
Let's face it floks...we have a lot of emotional baggage usually anyway so dealing with the.
Before and after just adds to that usually...REALLY! I am very proud of you all out there...you seem to deal rather good with a lot of situations! WE are a strong bunch of losers ey? PEACE!..
Hang in there,and I found a good cry to get it out is such a relief valve just let it out. I did and still do it helps.my son and rels were worried about the.
And I worried about the posible complications that normal too. they have to point out complications like any operation.it your decision what you decide to do and can you talk your concerns out with a bariatric nurse or the surgeon for reassurance, I went back with a list of questions and it helped, maybe you need longer to consider your options.have you a date yet? I lost a stone on my 2 week pre op diet, I was admitted last week again with dehydration and I went to a bathroom and had another good cry again it helped, I am 5week out so it still very new to me, I am seeing good results already, you take care and look after yourself. you arent alone in how you feel.god bless..
I am 6 wks out and I asked my dr. to reverse the GBS in the hospital!! I was sure I had made the biggest mistake of my life. I am struggling too with getting enough protein. I am struggling just eating. Nothing interests me but Iknow I have to eat so I try a yogurt or sugar free popsicle. The protein shakes I drank before.
Now I can only get 1/2 can down and hating it! my dietician said I should be getting 60 gms of protein per day!!?? Ha! Also, if you have not experienced it yet, eat slowly!! I have forgotten a time or two and getting the Medifast food stuck is NOT fun. Now that we have done this we must learn from this wonderful group and forge forward. Good Luck and God Bless..
Date is Feb 2nd and OMG it is coming way too fast!.
I'm barely able to get IN the necessary 1000 calories they put me on and now I am so nervous about how will I handle POST.
I normally am a strong individual...but these last 5 days...I DO NOT feel strong at all...and WOW the 2nd guessing my decision is driving me crazy..
Les says...well honey you don't have to do this....but I know I will regret it IF I don't..
I keep reminding myself that alllllll these emotions are normal (which is why.
Everyones elses post...helps). Plus I recently QUIT smoking....
....well of course I'm emotional all these changes at ONCE..
I just PRAY I am able to follow thru because after going thru all these changes...that would totally suck! LOL..
For those of you who are worrying about protien levels: please don't stress. Your pouch is ever so tender for at least a few weeks, and you will have to work up to the minimums. Focusing on getting enough fluids is job #1 post-op or you will be truly miserable. If you can find a protien drink you like post-op, that will be the best way to get your protien in at the beginning. Greek yogurt, sugar-free pudding with whey isolate mixed in, refried beans with a little fat-free cheese or sour cream and split pea soup are all great sources of protien and feel good on the pouch. There is a lot of trial and error involved in figuring out the optimal post-op Medifast diet for YOU, so keep on experimenting...
