  1. Hi everyone! I’m one week away from my VSG surgery and everything is getting a little real. All the feelings are coming up. Here’s some backstory: I’m 37, had a healthy baby girl when I turned 35. Gained about 80 pounds after having her and haven’t been able to get it off (I’ve ALWAYS struggled with my weight). I developed preeclampsia when I was in labor with my daughter and it took a good couple of weeks for my poor pressure to normalize after she was born. Hubby (44) and I have always wanted to have two children, never thought we would be doing it this late in the game but that’s how life goes. We are still wanting another one (although sometimes I’m on the fence about it) but if I have surgery now I’ll be considered a “geriatric pregnancy” if I wait the year from surgery to get pregnant. Basically if everything goes according to plan (which I realize is a long shot) I would be pregnant at 38 and giving birth at 39. Just looking to hear if anyone had any experience with being in your late 30s and getting pregnant after wls?

    July 2019 - Surgery Schedule

    Great idea!! In July 8th. 😊
  3. Thank you for your kind words. It definitely helps to hear from someone who experienced pregnancy at 38. I'm definitely keeping all of my doctors in the loop and had an extensive conversation with both my surgeon and my OB about my options. After reading more, I'm feeling more confident with my decision to get the surgery first.

    JULY SLEEVERS

    July 8th here in Orange County, CA. I'm excited but nervous. Started a modified liquid diet this week and still adjusting to it but feeling strong!
  6. Hi everyone! First time posting. I’m super excited that I’ve made the decision to get VSG surgery. I’m located in Orange County, CA and have visited two different doctors. One is Dr. Oliak in Brea. The other is West Medical in Long Beach. I was just wondering if anyone had experience with West Medical (I’ve seen lots of great info on Oliak)? I’ll be going the self-pay route if that makes a difference. Thanks in advance!!
