My Daughter of 11yrs old is my main support!

My youngest daughter of 11 yrs old comes to me and says mommy when you go on your diet with your surgery can I go on the diet with you,and of course I didnt tell her no because she is a litthe overweight to,so when I went to Bj's club to check out the protein drinks she came to me with a bottle of flinstone vitmans chewable-gummies and said mommy i'll need these and we will need more protein drinks because I like the way it taste,,,,I was overwelmed with the responce that I got from her when I told her that I was gonna have surgery to shrink my stomach to loose weight,she looked at me and said mom when you go on your diet I am going on a diet with you so you need make sure that you get extra stuff when you go buy some.....that really made me feel like im not in this alone anymore....and it brought tears to my eyes .....

If this is of any importants to any one, and it maybe good to know before.

Hope this info is important to some one who needs it,Once I made my 1st canceltation with the Doctor that will do the surgery on me you will have 6 appointments to make and to attend after your first one,you have a psychological assessment appt. neutritionist for your 6 month weight management unless your insurance doesnt require it,Labs for blood test,support group,Ultrasound,and you will need to get a medical clerance from your pcp....the appointment are fairly easy to get but dont miss any......I wish you all the luck in the world....sleevless4now...

I'm On My Way .....YEAH...

I am on my way ...I have my canceltation with the doctor yesterday and she answer all of the questions I needed answered,but I am here to tell you If you have something to ask that is very important PLEASE WRITE IT DOWN.because when you get infront of the doctor all leaves the mind,your thoughts will go bland....so please write them down and put a star beside the most important ones...   I had a very important question to ask the surgeon and most of you will agree,(why is there so many lapband patients converting to the sleeve or the gastric bypass,? and the answer will suprise most of you(there has been a decrease in lapband surgerys because of the failure in the product and that scared me,....I was thinking about the lapband ......until I did a lil research on the product..I would have never thought about changing to the sleeve...and I am glad that I did................sleevless4now......
