Recommended Posts

I'm ready for the operation on Tuesday morning. I have bought Unjury chicken Soup, chldrens muti Vitamins, gasx strips premier choclate drink, unjury no flavor Protein, chapstick, clcium citrate chews, and Iron wafers. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Im 90 percent excited and 10 percent anxious and nervous. This has been a nine month process to get here. My heaviest has been 420 and three days before I'm 377. My doctor has me on Atkins startup diet. meat eggs and cheese with less than 40 carbs, less than 5g sugar. I'm going to go liquid sunday and monday on my own to get all solids out of my system. If anyone has suggestions please give your input... I will write about the eexperience after surgery. I'm in Greenville NC, DR Nazeri,

I guess I have told you this before but you look just like my oldest son. I had the sleeve on Nov 28 and am doing just fine. I am down 22 lbs since pre-op. This was a 9 month process for me also. Most are on Clear Liquids after surgery for at least 2 days. Best of luck to you Proctor and I will be praying for you.

Hey proctor67, I am also on the 11th Tuesday morning. I am bringing a large bathrobe and sweats to hospital so I don't have to go through that ridiculous attempt to be fit into thin materials large size hospital stuff which never does fit. I actually purchased canned puree, also I have liquid tylenol, didn't see those on your list there. I am a patient at Yale GI group in New Haven,CT.

Tuesday morning for me too! I agree with the split between excited and nervous. From what I read, it's normal. Do you want to communicate with friends and family while in the hospital? Don't forget the charger(s) for your device(s). Also, remember comfy, easy-to-get-into slippers for all the walking we will do every hour.

Good Luck fellow December 11th sleevers. See you on the losers bench :-)
