    Are You In Dfw Area?

    Looking forward to surgery. I am still trying to learn my way around on this site. It took me a week to learn how to put a picture on my profile page. I know only four members in this group so far. How many in Dallas, TX? Hopefully as the months get closer we will expanded our group!

    October Sleevers! Announce Yourselves

    This a been a wonderful ride thus far...it has been amazing to read ask the post from preop to postop. I have been approved and knowing my surgery date since July 30, and I never thought Oct would come fast enough... I have 3 more days and a wake up before I lose 75% of my tummy (good bye and good riddens)..Good luck to all of my sista's before and after me! My prayers are with us all in the past, present and future...

    October Sleevers! Announce Yourselves

    I so feel your symptoms..dry mouth and wanting to get back to real good. I'm on day 9 of 15!!
  10. I'm going in for revision from band to sleeve as well with DR D. Kim as well on the same day. My biggest fear is that I have the band removed and then have to return for a 2nd procedure. I started my liquid diet on the 26th and just got creative with mixing 1 T of s/f Jello pudding (cheesecake) with blending my vanilla Protein powder and 3 ice cubes...delicious!! (lunch today will be mixed with 1 T of PB2 powder) yummy!

    Feeling Hungry

    Me, too.. I know that my doctor requires that I take a pepcid the night before surgery and another the morning of surgery, but I now know why....thanks!

    October Sleevers! Announce Yourselves

    I'm really feeling it today... I went to Walmart and I purchased my medications: Children tylenol, GasX strips, pepcids, hall's cough drops with vitamin Cc listerine strips, chapstick, and filled my prescription for B12 nasal drops and most important "the codine." I also purchased my Ninja blender, food scale, lil graduates plates, fork, and spoon set, broth, s/f puddings to add to protein powder, propel zero, and Isopure RTD for the next 11 days.... I hope I did not forget anything!!! If I did someone please chime in...
  13. I am looking to hear from the senior sleevers to determine if it is possible to be approved for the sleeve with medicare coverage? and if so, What doctor they would recommend in the Dallas,TX area?
