    What is ur date again??? Just remember you will probably feel horrible a bit less each day.. I'm only 3 days out, and aside from the gas pain I had the first 2 days and the horrible heartburn yesterday and thru the night, I feel a lot better today, and I'm so excited I did this and even more excited that this part of the journey has begun!!! Good luck, keep me posted on your journey plz!!!

    Burning Sensation

    What is PPI? And not so much painful, as it reminds me of pre- op whn u would wait too long to eat and u would get that burning hunger feeling in the pit if ur stomach.

    What's going on Miracle20?
  13. All in all feeling fairly well. The pain in my stomach from the air they pumped in me is worse than anything.. I've been walking, its eased up a bit, but man I wish it would hurry up and go away...
  14. The first day of the rest of my life... I'm so nervous and equally excited, hoping and praying for a smooth surgery and a fairly easy recovery.. I must say reading all of the different stories everyone posted has kept me from losing my mind with worry the last month or so. So thank you to all who have shared their stories...

  24. Somedays it feels like the Socal Kaiser process takes a while, but since January I have completed all 12 Options classes, completed all my labs, EKG's, xray, had my appt with Dr. Osana, completed the orientation with the surgeons at Kaiser Southbay, and just today I had my pre-op with Dr. Belzburg (no pre-op diet except the day before) and I have lost an addl 7lbs since I met Dr. Osana on June 11.. And now my surgery day is right around the corner 7/23. My pocess did differ from most whereas I contacted the Preventive Medicine Dept on my own and started the Options classes that way. I did not get a ref from my pcp. But, the time goes by relatively fast and it'll be worth the wait.
