    June Surgeries

    Today's the day. 6 hours to go. I didn't find the month long preop optifast diet to bad except for the headaches on day 4 but after that I didn't feel hungry at all. I have really gotten into walking whilst on the diet and have lost nearly 15kg (33lbs). I have had a few people say to me why bother having the op now that I have lost the weight and just continue on the diet. It did make me question my decision for a while but I new I wouldn't keep the weight off. I'm now hoping for a smooth op with No complications. Good Luck to all you other guys with ops this month.

    Lying about not getting surgery is awful

    I am the Manager of a Serviceman's Club in New Zealand & I have told everyone that I'm getting a gastric sleeve next month. People are used to seeing me at the Club after hours with a beer in my hand. Since I have given up drinking alcohol and am drinking water instead everyone asks what's wrong with me. So I tell them that I need to get rid of my Diabetes and Sleep Apnea + the excess weight so hopefully I can extend my lifespan. Everyone has been 100% supportive and if someone ever wasn't supportive then they aren't worth talking too. I am proud that I have finally done something to improve my health.
  3. At my consultation my surgeon said I should get my hernia sorted after my weight loss op. I thought you could get both operations done together for an extra cost. Can anyone enlighten me. Surgery is 3rd June.
