    I'm 17 days out and I can't drink plain water either. Makes me feel a little sick so I have to use Crystal Light or diet Arizona tea packets.. It's so weird!

    Allergic to med tape???

    Hey Emily!! I had the same exact thing. I even had a couple blisters where the tape was. I put Caladryl on when the itching was driving me crazy and then just waited it out. It's gone now.
  4. You look great and sound very happy!

    Loose Skin

    wow you're doing great! Congrats.
  10. I'm going with Dr. Cywes! Oh that's so cool we're going to be at the same place. I liked Dr. Pinnar a lot and could easily go with him too. He talked to my mom and I a long time and answered all of our questions. I hope you can avoid the 3 month diet because it's a pain in the ass! lol I hate it. Maybe I'll see you at a support group down the line, my name is Kasey.
  11. Hey Emily, I'm Kasey. I live in Jax too and I'm 23. I'm a couple weeks into my 3 month diet I have to do for my insurance. Who's going to be your surgeon?
  12. Good luck to you and everyone getting sleeved tomorrow!
  13. Good luck!!! I can only imagine the nerves/excitement/doubt/hope/fear you feel right before the surgery. I'm gonna be a mess lol.

    Young Sleevers

    I'll be 24 when I have my surgery and I'm worried about the same thing. I'm bigger than you and have always been overweight so I'm not too optimistic about the skin thing but I'll exercise and cross my fingers I guess. Gotta keep telling myself that I should be happy to worry about loose skin because that means the fat is gone!
  15. How fun! Seeing how happy you look in your picture actually made me tear up a little bit. I hope to have success like yours soon.
