You can do it. I did last year, and after it was done the whole world opened up for me.

As my Wife told me when it got difficult the last few days of the liver flush diet "Suck it up cupcake" HA HA

Most of us go through this at some point. Especially as you get closer to the day. Try to remember the REASONS you are doing this. It's a Small price to pay for a healthier, smaller you.

Be strong and stay busy to keep your mind occupied. Best wishes!

I had my sleeve done June of 2015, and I know exactly how you feel. But you must have put a lot of thought and energy into this decision, so follow your instincts and keep going. I've lost 135 lbs. and I was 55 years old. I knew it was my last chance at finally defeating being fat most of my life. Throughout the hills and valleys, it was the best thing I ever did for ME. Keep in touch and let me know how you're doing. Sending you much luck and for you to be at peace with the surgery!!!

I'm 50 and had my surgery this week on Feb 17. I have thoughts and fears, but I also have 2 preteen boys that will still need me for many years... That's what I'm thinking about.
I've been obese since I was 3. I have to do this.

You go girl !!!! 33 lbs. in 3 days??? Am I reading that correctly? You are an inspiration to so many. Your boys needing you is a similar reason for deciding on my surgery. I have one son, who'll be 32 next month. (but I still want to be around if he needs me, we are very close). BUT, I really wanted to stick around in the hope that he and his wife will bless me with a grandchild, and there was a really good chance that I may not hung around that long. I want to be able to run around with them, go to the park take them swimming without passing out. Best decision I ever made for just ME! I wish you continued success and keep me posted on how it's going!

Hello Friend! I'm opening this a day late, so you're probably already out of surgery (and fighting off the terrible gas pains.....sorry :( ) But, to me, that was the worst part of recovery. And you've had double bypass???? This will seem like a walk in the park compared to that!! I hope you read this when you're feeling able and let me know how you're feeling. Hang in there and trust GOD! Cassie

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
