I'm so excited to be this close to surgery. I don't have a date yet. I go back to the surgeon on Jan. 8, 2014. I expect we will set a date then (hopefully). January 29 ends the 3 month "diet" period. So I think I'm looking at surgery in February. :)

Me too. I need a general clearance for surgery from my GP, one more visit with the surgeon in early Feb., then all insurance requirements will be met. I am just under 40 BMI so won't be automatic approval, but I have a couple of other issues (hypertension and arthritis) so I hope I get approved. Then a major work commitment at the end of Feb., and I'm hoping for an early March date.

My surgery will be on 2-3-14. I must lose 12 pounds by 1-28-14 or they will reschedule my surgery. My scale is barely moving. Started the Wild Rose detox kit today. Dr. Oz recommended it. Feeling the pressure!!

I'm hoping for a Feb/March date as well! I finished my 3 month classes through Kaiser, all that's left is a sleep study, psych appt, and bariatrician appt before I meet with the surgeon, who will then give me a date. Soo ready and excited :)

We are on the same boat pretty much. I'm so excited for you. Kaiser is in California right? I was born and lived most of my childhood in cali. I'm so excited I have trouble getting to sleep..lol. I'm just happy that finally I will have a life changing tool and of course shopping. Its so hard to shop plus size I get depressed. I am filipina and my hubby is Puerto rican so lots of carbs in this house.

Hello everyone. I am new these post and usually just read and follow. Does anyone have or have had difficulties telling friends/family that they are having surgery? Currently the only people that knows I am having the sleeve surgery is my husband and my son. I am choosing not to tell my family and friends who are in the United States. I am so excited for surgery which is scheduled for 3 February 2014. Thank you for everyone's post this site has been extremely helpful.

I have my final meeting with my surgeon on 1/8/14 also. Have met ALLLLL the necessary requirements! They will submit to insurance after that appointment and once approved (fingers tightly crossed), my date will be scheduled. Thinking it should be mid Feb - early March...Good Luck to us all!!

      I joined a bariatric support group at Torrance Memorial Hospital yesterday and it was so inspiring and incredible to meet other people who are on this same journey! They knew nothing about this forum, by the way. Most of them had a significant other, a sibling or a friend tag along for support — how kind! There was one young lady (Ilana) who came with a friend (Katie) who was taking notes for her and asking all these questions — “playing the devil’s advocate”, as she put it. I shared my story. I was emotional and lengthy, but everyone was supportive… I met 6 people — some who’ve had surgery already (one lady was only 9 days post-op) and some who are still in their waiting phase (I’m the only revision and lowest BMI, but oh well)… There was one lady (Lisa) who lost 40 lbs. in her pre-op diet, had the sleeve done in October 2018 and thereafter lost another 80 lbs. — simply incredible! She said she’d actually like to be 10 lbs. heavier… (You're never going to hear me say that, LOL!) I got everyone’s phone number and created a GroupMe group for us. I’m excited for that to be our safe space; sharing/support portal kind of thing, especially since everyone is local and we can meet up!

      Worst. Dumping. Ever. Last. Night.
      So I thought I would throw caution to the wind and sample some of the fruit salad that my mom brought over for the fam. I dutifully portioned out 1/8 cup of the stuff.  I figured the sugar in the fruit may be in issue, but come on, 1/8 cup?  Barely a couple bites, should be fine.
      Before I could finish it, my heart started to feel like it was beating out of my chest.
      *** TMI Alert: continue reading at your own risk ***
      Ended up in the washroom barfing. And while I was barfing, I had to .  I was literally alternating ends to face the toilet until it felt like there was nothing left in my insides.  I swear more came out of me that I even put in it over the last 3 days.
      I laid down with my forehead on the cold bathroom floor tile for like 20 minutes afterwards to recuperate.  Then Mr. (my hero ) carried me to the shower and helped me crawl into bed.
      So yeah, I'm feeling pretty shitty this AM.

        Dang that sucks! I'm so sorry that happened!

        I was talking with a couple of friends this morning, trying to explain how unpredictable our physiological responses are to various foods are post op, but I don't think I was able to get them to really understand.

        I hope you're feeling better soon. Hang in there!
