I began my journey on 2/20, and it looked like it would be a July surgery date to comply with a 3 month WL period. However they approved me (in 1 day) because I had been doing weight watchers and other things prior.

I am all approved (as of 3/25) and they were booked out all of April. So I am ready to roll on 5/4! I have a pre op class that I need to do on 4/15 where they will give me all the post op info, prescriptions, and more pre op details. I do know that I just need to keep up on a lower carb/high Protein diet. I don't have to do liquids until the day before (So Saturday night will be my last meal before Monday's surgery).

So I bumped up a couple months, and it's messed with me too.I am nervous, and I am keeping it quiet to my family. My sister had VSG done 9 weeks ago, and she's trying to talk me out of it. She doesn't think I can do it, and I won't tell them until I've finished the pre op class. My b-day is 4/24 so I am thinking dinner at the Melting Pot as a final indulgent meal. ;)


I'm May 4th!

We have to stay in touch...

DITTO! I am May 4 too!

Hi all I'm from NJ! My surgery is scheduled for May 12! I'm getting all the pre op work done like blood work ekg and endoscope( not looking forward to that) Met with nut last week and scheduled for a pre op education class on 4/14 I'm nervous anxious and scared! Not for the actual surgery but more for the new lifestyle after surgery.

I just found out today that my surgery has been approved. Looks like May 6th is the date.. It is hard to believe, I started this whole process 2 1/2 weeks ago and I already have a surgery date. I did not have to do a 6 month WL program.

I am scared and worried that I am going to fail because I have failed so many other diets before. I have thought about this surgery for several years, but not seriously. I was talking to my friend, and I told her, maybe next year I will start looking into it and I thought why am I going to wait a year. So everything has happened so fast. I am very nervous and scared.

I haven't seen any may 6th people, is there anyone out there?

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
