Hey I am nikki and If everything goes through I will be having my surgery in February. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I am borderline obsessed with all info about VSG. I am 30yrs old and spent my entire 20s on diets exercise and frustration because of my weight. I am ready to get healthy for my daughter. I want to be able to run and play with her and fit down a slide. I hate just standing there and barely being able to walk up the baby stairs with out losing my breath. I been going through years of debating which at one point I started everything and stopped cause I got pregnant.

Ohhk so right after my post I visit my primary doctor and was excited to talk about my new journey! I was so disappointed he dismissed the idea told me he has no idea about anything on the surgery and we never talked about weight loss!! Plus he dismissed me for missing 3 appt now I gotta find a new primary and start over.

Some docs are like that. they can and will dismiss patients at their discretion. I guess they think their time is valuable or something lol! I know my pcp is not wild about wls because when I mentioned it to him he totally shot me down...hehe he doesn't know that I am going to be sleeved in February. He may dismiss me for going against his medical advice but OH WELL!

407 lbs now with a BMI of 47(I'm very tall). I hope to be 380ish before the preop diet starts.

I'm scheduled for Dr. Kim on 2/14 at Wise Regional in Decatur, TX.

I haven't told my primary either. I should just get another one cause I have good insurance now. The surgeon that I've been seeing for my wls asked once about my primary dr I just told him that he knew and was supporting my decision.

Carrie P - woo hoo! Your deductible is fantastic and I'm excited that your insurance is covering it! Hope to have surgery in late February.

Right now, this all-consuming obession with VSG is getting the best of me! I'm making myself crazy with research, planning, and prepping for surgery. And its THREE MONTHS AWAY! I feel like a crazy woman....there are nights I can't fall asleep for thinking about this! Ha ha! Worse than a little kid - he he....

Hugs to you!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
