    I know its a few months away but I thought I would start a thread for Nov 2020! My date is 11/9! Looking forward to starting my new journey, hoping Covid doesn't screw stuff up!

    on Day 3 I started walking almost 3 miles. Day 4 I felt a little pain when I first stood up or when I sneezed/coughed.

    Good luck. I just had my sleeve on the 9th and it went fantastically. virtually pain free by day 3 & 4.

    I'm getting a lot of gas pain too, no matter how slowly I drink or small sips. I was sleeved on the 9th and it seems to be getting better.

    I had my sleeve yesterday. all went well. Today(day2) was relatively painless although I still took my pain meds in case. The ride home with bumps in the road was the most painful part. Probably taper meds over the next few days.

    For anyone still upcoming on their surgery, don't be afraid to ask for pain meds. At different points I got a tylenol IV drip and a few times I got morphine. My doctors and nurses were great and very attentive. Had it at baylor scott while in Frisco, tx.

    so far I'm doing pretty well on my pre-op diet...5 days in and am losing about a pound a day, although I know that losing weight isn't the point. hoping alot of the weight loss is my liver shrinkage After the first day it was much more manageable.

    You might think about working with a counselor to help you get ready for the new you. I am/was a BBQ contest participant and won several times. I"m mourning that part of my life might go away. In the end, I have to chose what is best for my health. My surgery is 11/9 and start working with a counselor the next week to help me adapt/adjust. It'll be the first time I ever have gone to a counselor.

    Mine is two weeks of liquid diet. I tried it twice so far to find some stuff I liked and it wasn't too bad. I don't know how several days of it will be like. I go in for my appt 9/22.
