Chellede - ill wait as long as healthy to try naturally. My nk cells are also high so i need do infusion to keep elevated so hopefully with the weight loss and that ill get pregnant. Why i chose revision to sleeve? The band is not working for me have been stuck to 175'ish for 2 years now and I'm 5'2 with bmi of 34. Im scared yet very excited. What I'm most excited for is to feel sexy to want to try naturally. I have such low self esteem that i dont want to even try a lot of times. ????????

My date is Oct 20th. I have not talked to many about this part of my life. At my work only a few people even know. I worry i'll fail at this too.

I am tentatively scheduled for October 20th as well. My close friends and family know, as well as my manager. I can understand your concern about failure. But I have decided that I can no longer accept the status quo and need to make a leap of faith. Luckily one of my dearest friends had this same surgery about a month ago and that helps me get a glimpse of what's to come. I am hopeful.

Yes shrinkingjill I hear you I been postponing this for a while but it's time to think about me! And on the note of sounding selfish I have realized if I don't do it for myself no one will -__- but I'm almost done now I'm very anal so got everything out of the way been cleared by PCP, Psychiatrist, gastroenterologist, endocrinologist, and seen the nutritionist now I'm just waiting for begging of oct to do cardiologist and pre op testing. I live the program our doctor has he has everything you need to stay on track from a monthly support group to a running clinic which are all free to use and I plan on ( well I am ) taking full advantage of.... On that note I fell very prepared just very nervous and scared but also happy that I'm this far out basically just waiting for the day :)

Smiling panda I think I fell that too that's probably why I'm scared in away to submit myself to surgery to then f@&$ it all up but we need to stay positive and look at the goal it won't be a walk in the park but with a little work we'll get there! And I have told everyone at work the reason I want to know exactly who's with me and who is not I work in a an office with 12 people so far everyone is happy I'm doing it I only got one oh so your taking the easy way out lol which now tells me this is the one persons comment I will not be paying attention to but now that he heard everyone and the hard work it is to get there she's changing her mind and has been a little more supportive good luck and look at the prize so whatever it takes to get there !!!!

My date October 23rd. The closer it gets the more nervous I get. All I have left to do now is the Pre-admission testing with anesthesia consult, a pre-op class, and get all my LOA and disability paperwork taken care of at work. I think the most challenging part for me postop will be the 2 week puree diet and actually logging my intake. I suck at food logs lol.

Live - Awwww, I hope the weightless works for you !!! I really do. I”m super excited. We need to stay “Buddies” long afterwards and see each other on IVF Message Boards. My issues are a bit different. My husband had a vasectomy after 3 kids with his first wife. So we did IVF (reversal is less successful). I did get pregnant several times, but miscarried. I have a rare blood clotting issues, I don’t absorb folic acid and the weight. All three are manageable. I am going to be candid with you. You HAVE to learn you are beautiful no matter what ! Somewhere somehow you need to find that ! Even when we lose the weight, there’s going to be saggy skin, and other crap we won’t like. I’m a firm believer in loving yourself no matter what ! I’m 284 and went and wore a bikini on vacation and in front of friends at my pool party. You’re a beautiful human being no matter what !!!! HUGS !! (hope my opinion didn’t scare you)



Kelew - Ooooh Congratulations !!! I’m soooo sooooo Happy For you !!!!!!!



Fosho - Congrats !!!!



Smiling Panda - Don’t worry about that ! Because you won’t ! You will also need support ! So maybe join a support group ?



I’m so glad that there’s a lot of us nervous ! We need to keep remembering we are all doing this for our health and long term goals :)

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      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
