October surgery friends?? in Gastric Sleeve Surgery Forums Posted October 1, 2021 On 9/27/2021 at 6:27 PM, LyricalWarfare said: I’m having surgery on the 8th. Gastric sleeve and hernia repair. I’m terrified! I was approved for the lap band many moons ago and chickened out the night before. Here we are again and I’m going to need some positive reinforcement in order to go through with it, which sucks because I want this surgery so badly. Mine is being done by Dr. Robert Marvin in Houston, TX. ❤️ Congratulations to you! You've come so far, you don't want to let fear win again, do you? I will be having surgery on October 4th and I'm very excited! We're going to do GREAT!!!
