I think my surgery will be the first week of October. I go to my last supervised weigh in on September 2nd and then everything gets submitted to insurance.

I'm from Jersey! I don't have a date for my surgery yet but it will be in October. Just waiting on my NUT to send over my reports from my last two consults to my surgeon so they can turn everything in to my insurance.

I don't have a date yet, but I expect it to be in the middle - end of October. I don't live there now, but I did live in Monmouth County, NJ, for 20 yrs. I'm in MD now. Looking forward to sharing the journey!

My date is October 17th. I did most of my preop testing. I have a sleep study next Wed. I think the hardest part for me will be the two-week liquid diet. Fortunately, my doctor allows me to have small dinner (protein &veggies) but liquids during the day. I will have to think of the end result to et me through. Giving up my coffee will be a doozie!

Hi Everyone !!

I'm like most of you ! Just finishing up our weigh in before submitting to INS. My last weigh in is Sept 10th. I've been told first to second week of October.

Kathy - I agree ! The coffee thing is going to be my hardest too. Love that stuff !

Mariel - I think the fatigue is going to be my hardest part. Maybe tired of shakes. I drink them now after I work out. Thanks for starting this thread !!

Larissa - Congrats !!

I hope to have my surgery in October as well. I have to see the dietician one more time at the end of September and then the paperwork can be submitted to the insurance company. Hopefully that won't take too long. Looking forward to my journey.

I'm soooo excited for all of us!

Anyone confused w all the chewable & liquid Vitamins we need to take after surgery? Sounds yuckkkky!

I take a crap load of Vitamins now but I don't mind them cuz I can just swallow them.

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
