Hello New Here,

I will be going to Mexico to March 1 to be sleeved. I am excited and nervous. I will be starting my pre op diet on Feb 20th and right now I am dieting preparing my self mentally and physically. I have lost 4.4 lb since the 11 of this month. This has been a long awaited journey and it is just beginning. Best wish to other that are going to be sleeved this March.

Hi,

I am new here too and my surgery is on March 18 so I have not started the 2 week fast yet...March 4. Not too happy about no food at all but am trying to prepare mentally for it. Is that possible?:):(

I'm the 21st assuming I can lose the pre-op weight and my insurance doesn't throw me for a loop.

I went to dr on Mach 13 and my surgery is march 25th. When I went in, I was going to get the bypass but my doctor feels the sleeve is just as good. I hope I lose all the weight I need to. Can people tell me why they chose the sleeve?

I chose the sleeve because a bypass is very invasive and it does not allow your body to absorb nutrients as well. The recovery time on a bypass is longer. The sleeve does not involve rerouting in any way. The choice is up to you though...we will all have different reasons...good luck!!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
