December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

I was ecstatic when I was told I wouldn't need the preop and crushed when I was told I did afterall. It has been the BEST thing. I would not have believed how much more prepared I feel for this lifestyle change.

Holy moly did I have a bad night last night. I was doing GREAT...still so excited about my surgery which is tomorrow, and all of a sudden, it was like the floor fell out from below me, and I started getting extreme nausea and heart was racing, and I couldn't sleep (got about 2 hours). I got my surgery time today and spoke with the nurse who called, who recommended I call my primary for an anti-anxiety medication - she had no problem calling in a script for me...but sheesh, I had no idea that would happen. This time tomorrow I should be all done...with some extra anti-anxiety meds :)

MnWin YOU WILL DO GREAT!!!!! I know that this is a huge change for you and it'll be a process, but you got this!!!!! Tomorrow your going to be a new person on your way to a new life! This is going to be PHENOMENAL!!! And you have all of us DECEMBER 2013 sleevers on your side.

I'm with you, I'll probably be making this same post about nerves and anxiety on Sunday! But we just have to say, "We can do this, God is on our side and he will bring us through this!" Take a long bath, relax, try to rest, it'll be just fine!!

Thank you all for your encouragement and support. I honestly just don't know why this happened all of a sudden, but I am prepared now with the tiniest little pills I have ever seen.

This is the best motivational speech ever! I think it should be copied and pasted every day on the new surgeries list! lol

My nerves are waaay up!!!!!

Did the sleep study last night and the sleep doc found nothing wrong -- no sleep apnea. Just like I thought

Still waiting for my primary doc who is conveniently out of town to clear me -- most likely the other doc in her office will clear me ASAP

One day liquid fast starts tomorrow (oy!!)and VSG scheduled for Thursday dec 12

Yikes!!!!! Aaaahhhh!!! I know a new and better quality of life awaits me

Feeling like I may need an anti anxiety pill but I'm trying to stay strong --- avoiding negativity from family and online commentary on the subject of WLS and trying my best to stay positive

I am 4 days post-op and feeling pretty good. Minimal pain, getting up and walking a lot. Im very bloated and gasey. I should have started a stool softener but did not because it wasn't ordered. However, i am using gas-x which helps to an extent. Weighed myself yesterday, bad idea. Im up 11 pounds since surgery :( but ill keep trucking along

Ok guys I need your help.

Since today my file was submitted to the insurance, I thought it will be a good time for me to tell my job.

Well my boss was so worried and I felt bad. I don't want to tell him I'm having the sleeve but I want to tell him a procedure that won't me look like I'm dying or Something lol

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
