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.

I just wanted to say hi since we both have the same date! I am with dr illan, but also at Oasis Hospital, so we may meet...Not sure. I just wanted to see how you are doing? Dr gave me a one week liquid diet to follow...Almost time! I am getting a bit nervous, but so excited!

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
