I was just approved today for July 23rd! I am stocked up on books from Barnes and Noble about all different aspects and expectations of surgery. I'm currently looking for books that deal with the emotional aspect after surgery and have seemed to find some good things on Amazon. Good luck to everyone!

Good idea...Amazon. Thanks

I just had my pre-op appointment for my July 13th procedure: meeting with nurse, urine test, blood work, meeting with an anesthetiologist and vitals done! Now I'm off to a meeting with my nutritionist, things are starting to get real! It'll be even more real once I start my pre-op diet, which I am not exactly looking forward to! But in general, things are getting real! So excited! X

Going today for my Cardiac approval. I seem to have all these apts. Makes it more real. In one week I start my 2 week pre-op diet. My surgeon has me doing the Atkins diet not a liquid. I think I pretty much do that anyone. I am so ready!!

My doctor seemed pleasantly surprised I lost 20 pounds since he last saw me especially since he doesn't do a pre op.

Today was my last preop meeting with doctor. Have two more doctor appoints before surgery : cardiologist and pulmonologist.

Should be all set to go by end of day on monday other than my egd on thursday.

My date is 95% changing from the 18th to the 11th!!!! I'm so nervous. I couldnt even talk straight on the Phn with my dr. Office. I go in the morning to find out the final details!!!!!!!!! This is really happening. This is my 3rd time to go through the pre-op stuff, and this time I WILL NOT let my nerves or my family talk me outta this.(I haven't told my family :-)) Super excited. yet scared to death. I usually don't do things for myself.

What are July Sleevers doing to pass the time? I have another month left for the end of the year and I don't know what to do. I was told not to start my pre-op liquid diet yet , I have not a clue as to what to do while waiting? I am hearing all these numbers about percentage of weightloss after surgery do you know is the wightloss percentage 30% 50% less or more?

I started on Atkins while I wait for my date to start the liquid diet. I have already lost 10 pounds and I think it will only make the switch to liquids that much easier for me. It's wonderful to have lost that 10 pounds and know that it will never come back again. It's GONE. :)

      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!
