I am going to the hospital in 20 minutes for 7:30am surgery! I appreciate all of the encouragement all of you guys offer. I will see everyone on the other side!! I'm so nervous - I have never had surgery in my life to this is all new to me.

Nerves are normal, even to ppl who have had multiple surgeries. Our heads like to mess with us.

Thoughts & prayers for a quick recovery!

Keep your eyes (mind) on the prize. You'll do great. Follow all your Drs instructions.

Good luck. I was also fearful of surgery/anesthesia until I had to go under (for something else). Now that I've had two experiences with anesthesia, I'm not apprehensive about my upcoming lapband surgery...well, the "going under" part, anyway. You'll see....the patient's part of the process is nothing...all you have to do is go to sleep :) . We will keep you in our thoughts.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
