I finally told someone I was having this done, she had it done in April at our local hospital, she's so excited for me. I told her how nervous I am about all the concerns I've read, she said not to worry, she did fantastic w hers, and said I'd do good w mine, I've had a lot of ortho surgeries and also brain surgery, so she said this will be easy for me pain wise. I'm glad I finally told someone, now I have someone to chat with about it.

Found out today that my pre-op diet won't be too bad. I will have Protein Drinks and still get to eat a lean meat and vegetable each day. I'll find out more at my pre-op with dietitian but was glad to find out it won't be only Clear Liquids.

I just joined this forum last night, and was enrolled in my bariatric program today. All appointments are set for the next few weeks, I have no waiting period or anything crazy from insurance like I thought I would. I'm set for surgery sometime the week of the 22nd. I can't believe it all progressed so quickly. I have been researching for a year and it is all so serendipitous! I look forwarding to getting to know a few of you and going through this. I've only told my husband- It's exciting to tell others here! Congratulations everyone!
