    Hi everyone! I have been doing my pre-op requirements since June. Finally hit my pre-surgery weight loss goal this week. Surgery date is tentatively set for October 17th. I'm excited and nervous. Monday will be my final weigh in appointment and if I'm at the mark the 17th will be it for sure.

    That's wonderful. I'm more than sure you will be at mark. Make sure you wear the same clothes you wear at home for your weigh. Some clothes choices can put a few on. Well we will be October twins. I am scheduled for mine next week October 12th.

    Sorry for the late reply. I made my weigh in goal, but the insurance didn’t give there approval in time for the 17th. I had my surgery this Tuesday the 24th. I am still struggling to get in all my fluids. Each drink is followed by the need to burp. Hoping that is normal. Definitely still get hunger rumbles, but no desire to eat. Today I’ve been getting the hiccups. I’m supposed to go back to work Tuesday and am worried I might be rushing it since I am still having some issues and pain.

    Sorry you are having issues. I was on pain meds for 4 days after surgery, but still sore for another week or so. Your pain and not being able to breathe deeply may be causing your hiccups. See if you can take deeper breaths. Is your doctor releasing you to go back to work so soon?

    I was wondering if sucking in too much air was causing the hiccups. I’ll try slower deep breaths and drinking thru a straw. My dr said I can get back to work whenever I feel ready and am off the meds. I am hoping to stop the meds today if I can keep the hiccups away. Then maybe Wednesday I will be ready. Thanks for the advice Christine

    You might not want to use a straw. According to my doctor, you take in more air than with sipping. I’m not supposed to use them, but do to germ phobia, I do when I go to restaurants. Will keep my fingers crossed that you are off meds today.

    Oh okay. I will keep just doing small sips and deeper breaths. Yes my fingers are staying crossed too. So far no hiccups today.
