Thank you all! I haven't been nervous at all until now. I think it's finally hitting me that this is actually happening, but of course I know this is exactly what I need so I'm also excited. Hopefully all goes well😊

I know exactly how you feel! I'm the same. The only way I've been able to cope is by reading the successful posts on line. This helps me soooo much and turns my negative thoughts into positive. Mine isn't until the 26th, but I'm already having sleepless nights scared and anxious. But you can do this. Change is difficult... but this is going to be a magnificent change to our lives. We just need to focus on how much better our health will be. Wishing you all the very best xx

You are not alone. I'm less than 2 days out from surgery and woke up sobbing this morning from a nightmare I had last night. I'm having trouble getting my pre-op liquid diet down because my stomach is so in knots. I have no second thoughts and am excited, but I'm scared. And thats ok- it's normal.

Sleeved April 4th, everything went fine. Blood count dropped a little so spent 2 nights in hospital but I think that is good, the rest helps.

already tired of liquid diet though, having some hot Jello now just to change it up a little.

good luck to everyone!! 👍👍

I don't have my exact date yet, but I will be April as well!

I have my endoscopy next Tuesday which I'm not looking forward to. After that, they'll give me an official April sleeve date!

I go for my final pre op this Thurs, 4/13 & my sleeve surgery is 4/17. I am allowed 1 small meal daily & 2 Protein  shakes. I am already at my required weight for surgery. I am afraid of eating too much before my surgery.

Mines is April 17 also

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
