Are there any April 2017 sleevers?

April 10th with Dr Kelly.

I must admit I'm getting cold feet about the surgery (not the surgeon who is amazing) after reading online about complications that may occur years later.

What have you read ? You're getting the mini bypass? Do you think the complications may be worth the reward ?

The long term complications I've read about after gastric bypass and/or sleeve gastrectomy are nerve issues, dental problems (resulting in root canals, implants, dentures), reactive hypoglycemia, strictures, fibromyalgia, ulcers, fainting spells, chronic anemia, osteoporosis, etc.

I don't know if MGB has the same issues as these other weight loss surgeries as there's a lot less info available online. One thought is the perception of risk could be skewed if more people that have issues post their experiences than people that don't have these issues. So I could be getting scared about possible outcomes that are very low risk. It's a conundrum I need to work through.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
