Glad to hear it. I have hip pain but never had it evaluated. Figure just too much weight on them. Keep us posted on your progress.

My joints have been bad since high school and I have other chronic pain issues. This will definitely make it easier to get around.

I go to acoustic music festivals in the summer and need to be able to do a lot of walking. I need to be hauling instruments not hobbling about on a walker. :wub:

I am 59. I had a revision surgery from sleeve to gb on 1/17/13. I am losing slowing but am considered "lite weight". I am four weeks out tomorrow and have only lost 13 lbs but I am losing. It was a challenge going through menopause, hysterectomy, breast cancer, etc. I asked to have revision as I continued to struggle with my sugar addictions. I feel like I am back on track. Getting enough Protein in per day takes commitment.

Welcome everyone! Glad to see some of us baby boomers taking charge of our lives. My surgery was 12-10-12 and I'm beginning to feel really good. Not setting any weight loss records but have lost almost 40 lbs so I'm going the right direction. Hope everyone with recent and upcoming surgeries is doing well. Keep us posted!

My surgery is still coming. I'm close now though. I have blood tests and then see the surgeon!! Hopefully will have surgery by May. It seems to take forever between appointments.

I'm 52 and my surgery date is 2/26. Wish I had done it ten years ago when I first checked it out. But now is the time. It was so much harder to get insurance approval back then.

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
