    Surgery time frame

    I have to go thru most of all that to but with my work schedule and time off its going to take to do all these appointments I was thinking at least 4 to 6 months. I have to have pto for it to be paid time. Thats alot of appointments and then the time off work for recovery. Good luck with ur surgery Sent from my SM-N960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  2. I am starting my journey soon, and I am wondering about how long it takes to get thru everything and to ur surgery date. I have been told I have to do classes, meet nutritionist, meet surgeon, have and egd, do 30 day liquid diet, and meet with counselor. This all sounds like its going to be like a 6 month time frame. What r others experience with this?? Sent from my SM-N960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I am signing up for the gastric sleeve surgery. Mixed emotions, but hoping that this will really give me back the energy level and enjoyment in life again that i have lost in the last many years. My sign up date is Sept. 28th. I know it is going to be a long process but Im looking forward to the knowledge and support that comes with the process. Has anyone experienced friends and others saying alot of negative things about the surgery and how bad it is going to be afterward. I mean I know there is risks and all, but some keep telling me its not a quick fix and all of the horrible things they know others have had, or had themselves. Is this normal for others to discourage you like this?

    Thanks so much big sue. My husband says people that say the bad things are jealous that i might be thinner than them. I too am having alot of concerns about making the changes to my food. I am extremely addicted to sugar and comfort foods. I am looking forward to going through the classes and learning as much as i can about everything that goes with the process. Thank u so much for ur encouragement. 🙂

    Thank you so much. I am kinda excited that after all these years of fighting that I am mentally ready to take such a big step but it feels like so many people are trying to convince me not to do it and all the things that will and can happen, which makes me think should I really change my mind. Thing is at my age i feel like this is a do or die situation. And if i dont, there will be no turning back and i will get all the medical issues that goes along with being so over weight.
