    Banded Tommorow

    Good Luck! I'm being banded tomorrow as well and completely understand - I'm so excited and SSSOOOOO nervous!
  2. Selected through the Weight Management program through AHS in Calgary and my surgery date is June 27th!!! So excited and a tiny bit nervous. Having my 'last supper' this evening and start the two week pre-op diet tomorrow. Guess I'll lose a few more pounds before the 27th.......lol. Any words of advice or inspirational words to make it through the next two weeks would be great.

    June 27Th...yikes!!

    Dr Mitchell is one of the three surgeons with the program - I met him at one of the classes. But my surgeon is Dr Debrui - really nice man. The third fellow is a Dr Church. All the surgeries are out of the PLC. They are doing some gastric sleeves too this go round for some of the patients. Dr Mitchell also operates through Surgical Weight Loss Centres in Vancouver privately. Not sure if the other two are affiliated with any private clinics elsewhere. The presurgical diet we have to do is Ensure HP (4/day) and no fat/no carb veggies - like onions, broccoli, lettuce, etc. At least I can still have coffee......lol

    Hi Christine, I know I definitely got lucky! They had a change to funding, and then it changed and changed again but I managed to hang on . Do you have to do a strict pre-op diet for two weeks? I'm a bit worried about that but short term pain for long term pain.......
  5. I'm supposed to be July too! Waiting to hear date but finally got the call for my presurgical consult - Tuesday!! :-)
