Megs81 how did your surgery go? How are you feeling?

Surgery went great. Was in some pain the first couple of days. It is an adjustment but it is not too bad. They pretty much left me alone the first day but the 2nd day I was up and about a lot. Since being home I have been doing just fine. It is getting easier to get all of my liquids in. And I finally got the soreness out. Things seem to be going great

It's going. Lol.....I sent to the pulmomologist and psych eval this week. I go to the cardiologist tomorrow. But, then I don't have another appointment for almost 3 weeks. They should have my sleep study scheduled by friday. I have a second dietician appt, then the surgeon on Feb 8th. I hate having that much lull in my appts. I think that is alot of time to waste. I would like to know how long after the surgeon appt do they have surgery scheduled. How is it going with you? What appointments have you had so far? Good luck Mollie!! Oh, btw, I changed my screen name to oklafarmgal, but it's still me. lol.......

I was wondering the same thing! I haven't started any yet. : / I have the seminar on Monday and then my app with dr.kirk on Wednesday. I tried calling ahead to get some other appointments scheduled so I wouldn't have to wait so long (like you seem to be having to), but they wouldn't let me. : (

Did you see if they had a cancellation list they could put you on to get in faster? I'm going to try that. I have a job opportunity coming up in a couple months and really wanted to get this going faster than it seems to!

Yes. I emailed the girl that sets up appts and asked her to let me know if there is a cancellation. I sure hope there is. I just really have a feeling I will be into March before I can have surgery. That is really going to stink. I dont know how I can fit surgery into that month. The seminar is very informative. You will hopefully enjoy it. Plan on a long office wait on Wednesday. Dont be surprised if you have an hour wait to see him. But it's worth it. Good luck.

I saw my surgeon in October and I waited until January to have surgery because the sleeve was not covered by my insurance until then but usually everything happens pretty quickly

Yep. The treadmill test sucked but you can't avoid that. Do you have a surgery date yet

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
