I would say more nervous than excited. I've never had surgery before. My main issues are knee and foot pain, which are manageable but I don't want them to get worse. So I expect my quality of life will get a little worse immediately after the surgery before it gets better. I was pretty bummed out about having to start the pre-op diet, but now I'm halfway through it and my mood is getting better. Plus it has helped me lose a couple more pounds. I guess I have been so focused on getting ready for surgery that I haven't spent as much time thinking about how great things could be a few months from now!

How about you?

I'm 1/2 through my preop & slipped up by eating taco salad & oh my God I'm sick haha. I'm nervous but I have had 5 major surgeries so I'm kinda like cool, come at me bro. Lmao

I'm just ready for a change. To be healthy & use this as a tool as it's meant. To spend a better quality of life with my son <3

That is my day too! First surgery as well so that freaks me out even more I think than the sleeve right now. The pre op is blah I think the only way I have been like 95% compliant and 100% these last days is because focused on Tuesday.

Made it through the first night. My surgery was at 4:00pm and I walked around the floor around 10pm. Some pain but it's manageable. Looking forward to having my family visit today. And drinking water... Best thing I brought to the hospital was ear plugs. How is everyone else doing?
