    Fromky2002: yay! Same date as a couple of others here. Where are you from KY, I guess? What are your stats? How old? Best of luck!
  3. OlderLoser: no, but I see my surgeon tomorrow, so maybe he'll start me on a plan then.
  4. OlderLoser: want to stay in touch via email? Mine id annbehan47@gmail.com
  5. Angelgloria: Good luck on your upcoming surgery. Only 2 days away--excited or nervous? Keep us posted😊
  6. I live in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. Maybe we could email each other, especially since our surgery date and stats are so close. I used to live near Bel Air. My email is annbehan47@gmail.com.

    I had mine in May also. It's basically a breathing test with various elements. The EGD is putting a scope down your throat while you're sedated. You also have an IV. I understand most of the time the surgeon takes biopsies. Mine were fine. Plus he could see a hiatal hernia he will fix at the same time as my Sleeve.

    Sooo sorry to hear this!😧 Will you be getting of your. Money back? Suggest you talk with a patient advocate at your hospital to see what can be done for you. Can they tell you what steps need to be taken to make it happen? Best of luck!
  12. Angel Gloria: let me know how your surgery goes. I also gave a hernia. My surgery is Aug 2. Best of luck!

    Kamjmm25: Ive been working out when I can at a gym, 3-4 times a week. And I'm avoiding bread, pasta and rice. I leave to go on a 10-day cruise later this week, so that will really be the test with all that great food.

    Turkey neck

    Im 69 and surgery is Aug 2. I have the beginning of a turkey neck (check Pinterest for neck exercises), I have bat wings already (applying oils to try to help), and I have an apron (not related to the kitchen)...and all this prior to surgery. Yes, Im concerned about the extra skin getting worse, but I want to be healthier and no longer be the fat one in the room, at the activity, etc. Good luck to us!
