May 19th band to sleeve-surgery buddy?



Recommended Posts

Hi, I am getting a band to sleeve revision on May 19th in Austin, Tx with Dr. Fass. When I was banded (2001), I didn't have a support group, surgery buddy, etc. Is anyone having a revision interested in being surgery buddies? I am not sharing this surgery with many people, so it would be nice to have someone to talk with about all the ups and downs.

Hi buddies! For MsGal, yes I am getting band to sleeve in one surgery. Am nervous about the scar tissue that has to be surrounding my 14 yr old band (especially with all the throwing up I have done over the years)!

I started the pre op diet yesterday. Mine is <30 g of carbs, >70 g of Protein. Nothing fried, etc. I didn't think it would be that hard because I have done low carb diets in the past, but the carb count was a lot higher. It is SUPER hard and I feel very tired and it is only day 2! How are you guys doing if you have started the pre op diet?

Hi Shay,

Yes I've started my pre-op, mine consists of 2 Protein shakes and a low fat meal. I must admit, I have cheated.

How is everyone doing this week? Down 11 lbs so far with my pre op diet. I totally ate everything I could before I started the pre op diet so I was up a few lbs to start it. How are your nerves? I think I will be okay until day before surgery, then it becomes REAL. praying for all of us to come through with flying colors.

      I bought a box (7 servings) of peaches and cream oatmeal (used one) and pumpkin spice pancake mix (none used).  I no longer want them.  The exp dates are 4/2023 and 10/2022, respectively.  I live in Manatee Co, FL.  Will take $10 for all.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.
