Hi,My name is Nikki Monroe. I find myself here on this forum after doing more than 100 hours of research in this life changing decision. I learned about the Gastric Sleeve after attending an informational session as support for someone else who was considering the surgery. I filled out the paperwork to determine qualification like everyone else did in the room just because I was bored. When they called me back a week later to tell me I was approved and tried to schedule an appointment to meet with the surgeon, I immediately told them thanks but no thanks. I never intended on having surgery at all. 2 years later, I found myself attending another session with a friend so I could actually pay more attention to the session. I went home and the next couple of months I nose dived in to find as many answers to my questions as I could online and watched TONS of vlogs of others sleeves journey. I attended my THIRD session just to get a couple of questions answered and THIS time when they called, I was READY to make an appointment. Now I am here, waiting another 2 weeks to finally meet with my surgeon though I wish I could meet with him tomorrow and get this ball rolling. I am no longer nervous or scared but EXCITED to take the next steps to change my life!! THIS TIME...IM READY! I joined this forum to use as support on my journey and to get answers to those questions that may come up in the future so thank you in advance for helping me on my way!😆
