My surgery date is Jan 6th with Dr Aceves in Mexicali, MX. I'm flying in to San Diego on Jan 5th from New Hampshire. Anyone else going to Dr Aceves around that time that would be interested in staying in touch. I'm going alone.

I too am wondering how long people are taking off of work. I do an administrative job, so not strenuous or anything.

Hi Priscilla, I am having surgery on the 6th too! I am also going alone. We can support each other. There is another lady on this site that will be there on the 5th.

How are you feeling about the whole thing? We only have two weeks to go.

My date is jan 10th Dr hans Schmidt at Hackensack Hospital, in NJ. Party Like an animal, because the party days are over. It was a struggle to get the insurance to pay, but mostly because of an error by my former employer in coverage description. Atena said that i did noy have out of network coverage. Got appproval letter yesterday. Pre op appointment at PAT's today. Good Luck all and Merry Christmas and a Very HAPPY and "loosing" New Year

Yes I have my date, it is 27 January. I think I am ready, as it gets closer I may get a bit more nervous, but it took me a couple of months to decide if I really wanted to do this. Once I decided, then I have been at peace with that and have only looked foward to it, but at the sametime enjoying some treats now, as I know that I won't be able to have them after.

Who are you having your surgery with?

Oh that will be great Elizabeth! And your surgery is with Dr Aceves too? I arrive in San Diego at 10:33 a.m. on the 5th via AS Airways. How about you?

I am scheduled for Jan 6th.... Happy New Year to us! I have been reducing my carbs, diet soda and increasing my Protein and H2O to prepare... will start my pre-op liquids on Jan 1st. Will try to significantly increase my Proteins over Christmas holidays - which will be a challenge with all of the holiday goodies that usually hit our office and parties at that time. But I know I have to change my entire life not just the size of my stomach. laugh.gif

I am going to Mexico... how about you? Dr Ramos-Kelly is my surgeon. I am counting the days... let's see I board the plane 7 weeks from tomorrow - and in 50 days I will be sleeved! I am ready for a change in my life.

I am scheduled for Jan 6th as well....I am going through all the emotions(excited, nervous, scared, grateful, anxious.......) I went to my pre-op appointment today and the nurse put me at ease. I start my pre op diet tomorrow..I am a little excited about it. I am going to try and remained focus through this process because it is so easy to get off of the track due to my location. I live in South Louisiana and it's the holidays. Needless to say, Christmas is one day, New Year's is one day....getting sleeved and staying healthy is for a lifetime. So I guess the good outweighs the partying and fun.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
