I'm Oct 21st! I have my endoscopy Sept 18th, final class & labs on Oct 9th and start my liquid diet on Oct 7th. That is what I'm more worried about but I think it'll be okay. It'll be worth it in the end!

Hi I'm brand new here and looking to get the Sleeve in NJ in Ocean county I was going to get the Lapband but knowing my track record and almost 200lbs to lose I will try to get the sleeve. I spoke the Psych and I couldn't believe he failed me I think because I told him I was very afraid of getting surgery. I'm 6ft 3 and have no fear of anyone but I faint at the site of blood lol I have to redo all my test again because my insurance changed this is really sucks. Good luck not sure what part of NJ and your Dr keep us updated

Hello all - im new here and will have my surgery on Monday, October 13th in Tijuana Mexico. Im flying in from Alaska. I dread the pre-op diet, leak test and removal of the drain. I turn 38 on October 8th and this is my gift to myself. The reason for my decision is help with my pcos as i have had 3 failed ivf's already. Wishing us all a successful surgery and fast recovery. God bless you all!

I am so jealous of all of you that have your dates already! I have my enscopy scheduled ofr 9/16, and my last weighin on 9/23. I am worried because they told me I had to lose 14 lbs, but I've only lost 8 so far. I called my insurance company, and they told me that the only requirement THEY have is that I don't gain weight before surgery. I guess the 14 lbs is my doc's requirement. I'm hoping very much that they are lenient in this. I am really doing my best, and will be crushed if they push me off another month.

I expect to be sleeved in October, it's my birthday present to myself (I'll be 57 on 10/10).

I'm currently living in MD (for the last 5 years), but spent the 20 before that in Monmouth County, NJ, and the 30 before that in Brooklyn, NY.

Gendy - How many times did you have to see a dietician ?



Angie - Congrats on your Oct 14th Date !!!



Mariel - Yes !!!! I do wonder how we take our prescription medications as well !



jmsgal - Oh that’s so soon !!! Are you getting nervous?



lindalue- Same boat as you. Will find out in a couple of weeks. Have you been approved?



Firewife - what kind of classes did you have to take? I wonder if everyone had to do an edoscopy. I didn’t .. hmmm



Amy - Congrats on Oct 7th. That’s so close !!!



Hogman - I think the sleeve will be great. Sorry you’e going through all the problems with insurance. And the psych failed because you’re scared? Heck no! We would all fail ! I’m petrified .. well excited and petrified at the same time. If that make sense.



LiveLaughLove - I feel like you’re such a buddy ! i’m 39, been through 3 failed IVF attempts because of miscarriages. This is my last option. How does the pre op stuff work when you do it out of the country? Do you video chat with the doctors ? Man.. I really relate to you !



Jessiquoi - I hope they don’t postpone you !! If it does happen. Don’t let it set you back ! you strong, you’re doing the right thing, and your time will happen ! Stay positive !!!!!!



Cherokee - What part of Northern AZ? I’m a desert rat. Grew up in Phoenix. Folks live in Taylor! I love Northern AZ !! Just hang in there for a buddy ! I think lots of us are going to get the middle of October



MzSpy - My Buddy !!!! I’m in The Woodlands !! How awesome is that !! Where in Houston are you ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!




I’m doing pretty good right now. I have been hitting the gym hard! Starting doing some cross fit techniques. I have a feeling I’m going to turn into a gym junkie! I tried Zumba today but that was an epic fail. My coordination level was not good ! Ended up leaving mid class and working out with some friends. I weigh in for the last time on 9/10 and then everything is submitted to insurance. This is getting real so fast !! Hugs everyone !

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      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
