Hey everyone, this is just another update. Today I received my confirmation letter fromthe surgical dept. at the hospital. I will be going in for admission and testing on Friday the 7th of May, get a pass home if everything looks good until Sunday the 9th. My surgery is on the 10th. Here I was thinking surgery was the 7th, but I was wrong. It is ok because it is only the weekend.

I am going on vacation to the USA in April, then my daughter comes to visit us in May, right after surgery. She is coming to "take care of" Daddy LOL! Awwwwww! I know, right? What a sweetie. I bought her plane ticket today and I am PUMPED!!!

I guess, I would like to ask if I should do something the week before or 2 weeks before the surgery - to help my mentality to it all - any suggestions??? C'mon peeps, help a brother out =)

 

I love you all and thank you for your support. I am so looking forward to the day I am SLEEVED!

It'll be a great weekend pre-op. Mentally, just push all the negative out, and only positive thoughts, feelings, and realize things will be really different for a few weeks.

Will they give you a pre-op diet? If so, stick with it, so the post-op diet is a bit easier for you.

Take care of yourself, enjoy your family, and I am seriously stoked for you.

The day will be here before you know it. I agree that you should really just try to follow your pre-op diet in the weeks leading up to it, if you have one. I think it really helped me that I had limited my carbs so much before surgery, although I did have a couple of "last suppers."

PRE-OP diet - they told me it would help moving the Liver out of the way for surgery. All I know is it helped with the post OP because if you think the amount in pre-op was small just wait. The great thing about post op is you really don't care if you eat but you know you have to..... Good luck and it is the best thing you can do....

Rob, that's so exciting. You have a set date. I'm glad your daughter will be able to go visit you after. I know you have to be excited about that. When you are here in Colorado, we should try to meet up one day for coffee or something. Would love to meet my future sleeve brother. I'm really excited for you.
