I am going for vsg with dr Corvala on 2/21/20 and im starting to freak out. I put my deposit down my flight is booked but i have not made my hotel reservations yet. Im going alone which is why i think im more nervous than usual. Im actually gonna stay a few extra days in Hotel Lucerne so im going from the 20th to the 26th from Florida. If anyone can ease my fears let me know if they are going at the same time id love to hear anything about anyone's past experience as well. The good the bad and the ugly.

While the experience can seem scary at the time with the language barrier, the over all experience was amazing. The staff was very prompt to make sure that you are not exceeding the time for meds. After being in the hospital for the couple of days, I was extremely anxious to get home and had wished that we hadn't stayed an extra night just in case (although I was glad I did). If you have the option to upgrade to first class coming home, I would recommend it as it was great to have the extra room as you will likely be uncomfortable. Make sure to get extra bandages from the hospital for your hotel stay (something I failed to do and I was stuck using a wash cloth as a bandage coming home) and I had used an antiseptic wash whenever I showered.

I'm almost two years out 3/22/17, surgery weight 183, current I range between 126-131. Wish I would have done it sooner.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
