  2. Can't wait to be on the loser bench thanks soooo much to everyone on this site for your help and advice I will keep you updated wish me the best of luck thanks again everyone you have been a great help.
  3. Well I will give you some info about me. I weigh 360lb and I would like to lose 120lb. I have a bad back I have been living with for years (over 15). I have a herniated disc, degenerative disc disease and the cartilage is very thin to gone between a couple disc. My doctor suggested to go until I can't stand the pain any longer then look into surgery. I know even with weight loss im going to have pain but my nsaids really help me. My weight loss doctor is wanting me to get RNY to lose more weight faster. He suggested for the back pain take tylenol and water therapy. I know tylenol and water therapy won't help me so im considering the sleeve. Has anyone else been in a similar situation? I'm trying to decide between the two surgeries and its only two weeks away from surgery time.
  4. I have a 2 week liquid diet and one day before surgery its full liquid.
  5. Yes im also on the 17th one more week of pre-op diet to go

    Last Meal Before Pre-Op Diet

    I had the biggest steak at the Texas Road House. Now im on my 2 week liquid diet and im pretty sure that steak is not going to hold me over for 2 weeks lol. Im really excited to start my new life and not have my life revolve around food. I love watching that scale go down

    Back Pain And The Sleeve

    I would prefer to have the sleeve myself because I know in the future I will be needing back surgery so im kinda leaning towards the sleeve as of now. I have tried water therapy and tylenol and it didn't help any at all. My thought is if I get the sleeve I could still take nsaids and be able to exercise alot more than without nsaids on the rny.
