    Getting scared!

    Please don't let fear drive you. If I did, I'd also not have made this decision. My story is a little different. I had complications, and two surgeries and spent 4x as long in the hospital as the normal patient. I came home Sunday.. But, trusted my doctor/surgeon and put my life in God's hands. Because if He didn't want this for me, I wouldn't have the option. I'm going to have a little longer recovery, but I am sure things are going to work out. Good luck and you can PM me if you like. I have built a great support group and would be glad to share. God bless!
  2. Hello, Here is my experience. I was sleeved on Monday 5/20/2013. Leak tested on 5/21/13 with no leaks and cleared for release. I came home on Tuesday afternon after I could keep down ice chiips, popcicles etc. The rest of the day I slept. Wednesday night I couldn't sleep all night, I couldn't get confortable. I take meds for anxiety and thught that was the problem. At 4 am, the pain became sudden and severe and I woke my husband and told him we need to go to the hospital, and that is what we did. They did a CT Scan to make sure I didn''t have an pulmmonary embolism. Then they did a leak test, and that came out positive. So off to the OR I went. Regarding the pain it is fine. Thank you so mucfh. Terri

    Good luck to you! Sending you prayers for a safe surgery and recovery. Look forward to hearing from you after. I have 14 days left and I still can't believe I am going to do this!

    May 2013 Sleevers!

    Beth I tried to send you a message on FB and it said that since we aren't friends, it will go to your "other" folder. LOL. I don't know what the "other" folder is, but I hope you can find me and add me to the page. My surgery is 5-20-13. My name is Terri Tyrer and you should be able to find me if my message didn't show up. Thanks!
  9. I got the awaited phone call today.....May 20th is my date! I'm so excited!
  10. Hello, How can I get a copy of these lists? I am sure they would help me prepare! Thanks so much!
