Hey! My surgery is Monday, any advice from those that are pre-op? I'm super nervous.

I don't really have any advice, however my surgery is also on Monday! Just wanted to say good luck!

So I'm scheduled to have my revision on June 19th from the band to the gastric sleeve and I wanted to see if anybody traveled after they had theirs. I'm supposed to be flying out of town on June 26th for a family reunion and I guess I want to get a feel of how you guys felt after your surgery. I'm thinking I might be OK by then but I really have no idea so I would love to hear your stories please.

I just got sleeved on 6/12. Feeling great. Surgery was at 4pm and I checked out of hospital by noon next day. Took pain meds just one day at home and now not needing. Feeling great. Taking it slow, resting and just doing tiny sips of Protein drink and broth. Pounds melting away!

I hope my experience will be that smooth! Congratulations!

Yeah, I plan on ditching the gym for a while and walking around my local park where it's quiet and usually no one there until school let's out.

I guess it really depends on you and what your doctor says. I know some people said they felt just fine afterwards and others had a totally different experience. I may be wrong but I thought you couldn't fly for a while after a major surgery? Best thing is to ask your doctor and see from there. I wish you the best of luck!
