What's up all!!! I'm going under on Oct. 22 in Fort Worth, TX! I thought the 3 mo. pre-op was bad until I found out my date had to be 3 months after my approval. But on a better note, I have been working hard at lost 30# since the 4th of July. Oh and I'm 26 350lbs and 6'4"

Hi all. I'm 23, from NYC and I'm an October Sleever with no date yet. I get my date in a few weeks (September 18th! Can't wait!) I'm hoping for early October. I'm so excited but also kinda nervous! so glad us October sleevers have grown in numbers! When I first checked in June when I started this process there was like 1 other person and now we're a whole group! Feel free too add me I'd love to talk to other October people! :)

Hi, I am Sue. I am 46 years old, two teenage daughters 16 & 14 and hubby :) I have a date of October 12th but waiting for approval from insurance. Will be having surgery with Dr. Noyan in New Jersey. I am a transcriptionist by trade and a SAHM by heart (but not pocket book) and I work from home. I sit at my computer for literally 10 hours a day, so I have become extremely out of shape besides the weight I need to lose so I plan to start walking slowly but surely. I am 277 and hope to lose 110 pounds.

I just got approved for 8 oct 12. Scared! But my doctor, Dr Yadegar in Lancaster is one of the best in the country. He has been doing these surgeries for 12 years.

Hi! I am having my surgery October 9, and I am currently 260 lbs, I am worried about the liqid diet that I start 4 weeks prior!

I also am very concerned as I am going in on Tuesday for an MRI to see if I have multiple sclerosis. If I do, I hope and pray that it doesn't mess up my surgery date'! I am really excited about having a new and healthier life with the weight off!

Good luck to all on this brand new beginning!

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
