    Cant Stop Obsessing!

    Your not obsessing your just getting so very exceited. A whole new life is ahead of you. There are many emotions that come into play with WL surgery. As it gets closer you may second guess yourself and start getting nervous. This is all normal. Just keep your eye on the prize. a healthy new you. I had surgery April of 2011 , I always wanted to parasail and well 2 weeks ago in florida I did. What a wonderful gift we are given with this surgery.

  6. Hello, One thing not metioned here is a battery power fan. I took one and used it. My hospital said they would have to inspect a plug in one and the fan was my lifesaver. Hospitals can be hot and it was very cooling and soothing for me. good Luck on your sleeve

    It is definitly normal to be nervous. I was so scared the day of surgery I cried in the or room before they put me under . They were great they talked with me and calmed me down and I was impressed how they gave me that time to calm down. I have not heard of any complications and I was able to drive after 2 weeks and go back to work after 4. so you will need a driver to take you both to your 1 week appointment. what are POCS?? I am glad you both will be there Tuesday- I sit in the back before we break out into groups. I was suppose to get the ds but when Dr. G went in there I had gall stones stuck to my wall of my stomach ( I had gaul bladder taken out 4 yrs ago and there were stones left in Ugh- Dr. G was afraid of infection so I got the sleeve instead- he said he did not want to mess with my plumbing at that point and can come back in a year for the 2nd half of the ds and well I love my sleeve and am loosing a nice amount of weight with this surgery does not really have much complications- now you can like any surgery have some but they are much lower then the ds or gastric bi pass. although my husband is getting the ds in november by Dr. G. looking forward to meeting you and your husband. I can give you our phone # then. Denise

    Hello I was thrilled when I saw your post. I had my sleeve done April of this year and am down 129 pds since surgery. 179 pds all together. Dr. G is my surgeon and he is great , they are both very good and wonderful surgeons. I go to the support group every 3rd tuesday of the month and have never heard of any complaints about either surgeon. The whole process was a wonderful expierence. The office staff and nutritionist, along with the nurses etc are a great team. I had no problems , but did have alot of questions when I came home from surgery if something was normal or not and when I called they called back right away. I was fine though. I will eb at the support group on Tuesday night if you want to talk in person we are breaking out into goups by what surgery we have. My name is Denise B.
