  1. My son would be the same exact way *if not* for seeing me "survive" an appendectomy earlier this year. (He was six at the time and the biggest Mommy's boy you have ever met!) It did shake him up quite a bit, but he got over it.

    So a few months later when I had a hysterectomy, he did great again. Now he is not worried at all about the sleeve surgery next week. He knows the benefits, that I will be able to do more fun stuff with him and the family, so he's looking forward to it.

    Reconsider the probabilities of death due to surgery and the complications of being overweight. That should make your decision much easier.


  2. I'm not looking for encouragement, just reality responses.

    I'm one week out from surgery and I'm second guessing if I have the will power to make the sleeve work for me. This morning I was doing great, ate a high Protein Bar and didn't drink Water until 30 minutes after....then I ate 1/2 sleeve of saltine crackers! What is wrong with me? Am I setting myself up for a massive failure? Is it possible for ME to lose 100 lbs with the sleeve?

    Yes, I have been approved by a psychologist.

    Yes, I did all the tests, went to all my appointments.

    The 'hand to mouth' just doesn't listen to my brain. :(

    Any honest replies will be so thankfully received.

  3. Yes, I also have an inflammatory arthritis. I do not have to get permission from my rheumatologist, but do have to go off the drugs. I took my last remicaid infusion in September, last methotrexate about the same time, and will stop taking plaquenil one month before surgery. Needless to say, I'm taking pain meds in order to sleep at night, but it's all going to be worth it when I've lost 100 lbs!
