Vertical Sleeve Talk - Thanks Alex




Just want to say this site has been my godsend. I have never gravitated to something so effortlessly before. I could read and respond to posts all day. I feel like I can be emotionally naked here. It is give and take. I love VST. I am on FB but I don't post. I am on Twitter but I don't tweet. I encourage newbies to really utilize this site. I know when i had Lapband, I went to their forum but it never resonated with me. I am thankful for Alex for providing us a forum to share. I've had the opportunity to communicate with several people who are having surgery by with same surgeon. I mean, perhaps if I was at surgeon's office I could have had a general conversation with someone in the reception area but lets get real, people are not going to share like they do on this site.


Happy soon to be loser, Michelle

Hooray! Same doc and our surgeries are three days apart. I start my pre op diet next Monday - yikes! But you're right - I feel stronger and more confident in myself because of this site and people like you! :)

Are you having surgery at Westlake Hospital? I've never been there....always West Sub in OP. What is your pre-op diet, rather, what are your instructions? You have to start it two weeks before surgery? I am wondering if I should call them. I haven't done any testing. I go in 8.6 for pre-op consult but I leave for vacation later that week. I need to find out more information from them because I will be on an 8 day cruise and I get back the weekend before my surgery.

I am so tired but being on this site calms me. I've worked all day and all I want to do is read....................but I need to go to bed.
