Hi. I'm new to the forum. I'm in Perth and have just booked my appointments with the psychologist, physician, dietitian and surgeon for August-September.

I've got no idea what to expect at the appointments!

Great to see a recent reply from Perth on this thread!

I'm new too and from Perth and am booked in for the end of October. I'm excited to get this all underway! I had to push my surgery date back, they wanted to schedule me in for early September but that was too quick to get the leave at work booked in, in time. So things move nicely and I'm sure you'll find the same!

I'm already making changes in my lifestyle pre-op like going hiking over the weekend and eating smaller meals (even avoiding dessert at my family's birthday dinner!) [emoji5][emoji5][emoji5]

Yup, I decided to do the same so then after the surgery people won't see me drastically change my habits. I'm trying to avoid making it so obvious that something is up. I don't want to attract questions.

Exactly! That's really good to hear. I think it's a good way to get your head around the lifestyle change as well! [emoji846]

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
