Surgery fast approaching
firstname.lastname@example.org posted a topic in Gastric Sleeve Surgery ForumsI am scheduled for gastric sleeve on July 25. One week from today I will start the liquid diet. I am 58 years old, 5'1" and currently 306#. My highest weight in 2008 was 401. I spent years in the 380# range until hysterectomy and chemo for uterine cancer in 2014, when I lost to about 340. I started working on this surgery plan in January 2018 at 343# and have lost to my current weight. I am hoping to be below 300 on my surgery date. I am a nurse, and not a support group kind of person in general. I tend to be the one answering questions rather than asking them. I have been fat my whole life and my weight has always been a huge embarrassment to me. I am not looking to be thin, but I would like to be healthier and better able to get around. I don't see many people my age/size being successful at this. I hope I can be an exception to the rule. I know what I need to do, but putting that into action has never been easy. Hoping this surgery is a tool to help that happen.
