    December 2013 Sleevers Come In!

    Hey everyone 12/16 sleever here. Sorry I'm just now posting. But everything went well no hernia repair. Still have soreness and a lil gassy. Taking my Roxicet only at night. I'm good throughout the day. It does hurt when I am getting up out of bed and when I turn from right side to left side. My incisions are scratchy and it's sux to cough! I've been taking it really easy laying around and walking that's it. My parents have been a big help when my fiancé is at work. I'm truly blessed. No regrets! I've went back and forth about WLS for years it was my turn, I went thru it and now I'm ready for the next steps. Good luck to all my other 12/16 sleevers hope you all are doing ok or on your way to a good recovery. To all you who are 12/17, 12/18, 12/19 and 12/20 sleevers I'm praying for you all and wishing you all nothing but success!

    Impatiently waiting for Aetna

    Hey UberBuffaloGal!!! It's always good to hear from you! Trust me I truly understand. So they say low potassium and effect your heart rhythm I didn't really read too much into it I just knew they said it could cause surgery to become pushed back. That sounds like a great book I'm going to purchase it on kindle. I understand with this surgery you get to the point where your like I want this but God will drop it in your lap at the right time! You will be doing this in no time, don't you worry about it! I am super excited about the surgery. It was originally for 10:30 a.m. Eastern time, but on Friday I got a call that someone was cancelled so it was moved up to 9 a.m. So check in is at 7. I'm so nervous and anxious and scared and excited all rolled up into one ball. I'm ready though! You'll be telling me these same things next month hopefully!!!!! I will definitely keep you posted! Well it's 10:51 pm here and I'm going to shower and wash my hair and have my last SF Popsicle and have a bottle of water!!! goodnight UberBuffaloGal!

To all my other 12/16 sleevers, good luck to you all. I'll be asking The Lord to protect and keep you all safe. Wishing you all a safe and successful surgery and a speedy recovery!

    I was also instructed to shower with antibacterial soap also. It's my choice to wash my hair I don't have to. But I can't wear any oils, lotions, hair gels etc!

    Impatiently waiting for Aetna

    Hey UberBuffaloGal!!!! It's been quite a while! I was hoping to hear that you were approved and waiting to have surgery! I'm so sorry that Aetna is still being non-compliment. Your very right God does have a plan, a great one and your definitely in it!!!! Pre op diet is hard but this is week two and I got it under control. The first 3-4 days are rough. So be ready! My surgery date is 12/16! Hopefully it stays that way, during my pre op with Anesthesia my potassium came back low. So hopefully it was a false reading!

    LOL!!!! Well thank you!!!! We all need a good motivational speech to get through all the nerves and anxiety we're facing going into this surgery! We're here to support each other, and this group is an AWESOME group that does that quite well. I'm soooooo happy to be a December Sleever!

    I feel as though when your on the clear liquids Pre-op diet it's getting your body ready for the 1-2 weeks of clear liquids that your about to do in your Post -op. So for a lot of folks who didn't have to do the pre-op diet is kind of weird to me. I would think that your surgeon would want you to experience what your body will be going through after surgery. I know the preop diet has totally helped my head more than anything! It has really given me plenty of time to mentally prepare for this life long journey without the added stress of the actual surgery and pain. I think I'll be in a good place head-wise and hopefully better able to focus on recovery than the sudden loss of food too! Who knew? I was so upset when they called me back and told me I had to do it. Now, I am so thankful! I feel that it truly does help you, It get's you into the right frame of mind for the post op! I was dreading having to do it and I admit I did have a few small cheats (2 be exact) I feel like I have caught my stride with the liquids. I haven't felt hungry all day, and I'm taking in more Water. I'm feeling mentally ready for the post diet!!

    Today I got on the scale just to see if I had lost any weight since i started my pre-op diet on 12/03. I was so shocked and amamzed that I did lose 7lbs!!!! YAY!!! I was so excited, this liquid diet plus Zumba is the real deal, LOL!!!

    December 2013 Sleevers Come In!

    Well, I have to week to go and I'm still super nervous. I haven't packed my bag yet, I don't have an outfit for the day. I'm a last minute person, I work so much better under pressure LOL!!! But my Kids and my dog are taken care of!! I just have so many thoughts going througt my head, saying many prayers day and night for all my fellow sleevers and myself. Those who have been sleeved and who are waiting! That was a great Question though. It seems like it's not real but I'm really ready!

    December 2013 Sleevers Come In!

    Hi Cabstewart, I'm also a 12/16 sleever! This is is the third day of my Preop and I had a hard time the first day. I felt a little dizzy and I did have something besides liquid. I too am very nervous. I was reading a post about two sisters that had surgery and one sister didn't make it a year, that is what I am truly afraid of. I've never been "under the knife" so my nerves are going haywire! I'm not having surgery to look good, I'm having it because of my co- morbidities and trying to have a better more energy filled life with my two young children. Every time we play I'm tired easily and out of breath and I feel like I'm cheating them of these moments with me because I'm overweight. I don't want to be that mom to them, and I Amos ready to live a healthier lifestyle. Looking good is just the plus of the surgery. But trust me I'm nervous, very nervous. I may need a Xanax before surgery, lol! SoPeachy28: Thanks for your reply. We will have to keep each other in our prayers. I am doing much better with the headaches lessened. I think I am allergic to something in the the Ketogenx shake mix I was drinking. I tried a couple of others such as Oh Yeah with better results. Tomorrow starts the all liquid phase for me. We're only a week away! I had a hysterectomy in 2005 - with about an 6 incision - I guess I am thinking that if I can live through that I can live though this. It seems like different people are on different diets before surgery - any idea why they are all so different? Thanks again for the encouragement! I haven't tried the Ketogenx protein, I use Unjury and it's really good. I haven't had any issues with it. GNC's Total Lean is also good. I keep telling myself that We will all do perfectly fine and not be the statistic. Good luck on your liquid diet, it's a hard phase to go through. Just stick with it, keep busy and you will do just fine! 12/16 is right around the corner!!!!

    So I bought a container of the Nectar from my surgeons office gives, I got the Caribbean cooler flavor. OMG that stuff was a Hot MESS! It was so nasty to me. and the smell, I gagged everytime I put it up to my mouth.

    I wonder if being on the preop prepares a person fir postop? Originally, I wasn't supposed to be on one and I thought it would be super hard. I thought it be easy postop because of recovery. Preop has been much easier than I could have imagined. I DO want food but I'm such a rule follower, I know it's not an option so I'm just trying to roll along. Surgery is Friday and then just one week of liquids after! I feel as though when your on the clear liquids Pre-op diet it's getting your body ready for the 1-2 weeks of clear liquids that your about to do in your Post -op. So for a lot of folks who didn't have to do the pre-op diet is kind of weird to me. I would think that your surgeon would want you to experience what your body will be going through after surgery.
