    connieinjax reacted to Frankette in December Sleevers??   
    I am now tentatively on the books for Dec 4th. I am so nervous ... I wont believe it until Im actually in the O.R. This has been such a long journey so far. I had my info meeting in January of this year. Last week they scheduled me for Nov 14th and then they moved me to Dec 4th. I hate to get my hopes up anymore.

    I think you have made a great decision for you and your daughter. Your husband would be so proud of you. [emoji4]Your daughter needs you and this will improve your health dramatically.
    I just had mine on 10/28/17 and I was scared too. I was soooo happy after it was over. Now I am THRILLED I DID IT. You can do this and you will have everyone here for support afterwards.
    You got this!!!

    Revision procedures are riskier than virgin sleeve gastrectomies due to the amount of scar tissue and erosion, especially in those who revise from lap band to sleeve.
    Since you aren't a revision, your chance of developing complications is less than 1 percent. However, remaining obese is a greater risk to your life than getting sleeved.
    Good luck with your decision. I hope your friend recuperates.

    I quit for a month and took my nicotine test, then I started smoking again about 5 cigs or so a day now I've stopped again its been 3 days its not easy thats for sure I have to constantly battle my mind telling me to go get some but I know I can't take that chance I'm waiting on insurance approval all my pre ops are done just getting to close to cheat. Good luck, oh I eat hard candy like I"m smoking it helps a little.

    Friends, I've done some things very right for me like exercising, joining this forum, & quitting alcohol.
    But I've also done some things very wrong for me like drinking too much, eating too much occasionally, & not seeking support when I needed it.
    I hope this thread is helpful to you.

    Your Mum sounds like she has a stricture. I had all of your Mother's symptoms and I was four months out from my surgery. It took my surgeon three months to diagnose me and in this time I drank 25mls of Fluid daily and four strawberries. I nearly died because my potassium was so low my heart was going into failure. I pray for your dear Mum it is the most SHOCKING thing to go through but they did solve mine after the third month and five more surgeries later.
    Go back to your Mum's surgeon and demand a endoscopy to see if it is a stricture (your stomach/pouch twists from scar tissue, staples, etc.).
