I gave up carbonation a few months ago and I thought it was going to be REALLY hard. I did miss it for awhile, but now have learned how much refreshing it really is to drink a really cold glass of Crystal Light Water instead (or something like it). It's gets better - it's kind of like quitting anything - every day gets better!

I'm going to tj. My surgery is the 23rd. Do not go into the "complications" forum. I made that mistake and now I'm having major anxiety

Good luck! I am excited but don't like reading the negative things

Educate yourself based on facts and it will help you sort out the stories you hear. I have done an enormous amount of research on this proceedure and feel like I have firmly in mind the *real* risks and complications. Based on this, my personal risk to benefit scenario is one I'm comfortable with. We each have to come to our own conclusions, but don't let yourself get freaked out by only dwelling on the negative stories. I figure my chances of a plane crash on my way to San Diego is a greater likelihood than dying from this surgery.

Well I'm not going back there BC all it does is make my stomach hurt. I was on this forum stalking for months before joining and dug around off site as much as on. I know we're all in good hands.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
