Charismatic you said you needed to lose 200 lb, my surgeon said I need to be 1/2 my current size, told me its like I'm carrying around a NFL quarterback on my back, told him to tell Bret Farve or Tom Brady to remove themselves. Besides THAT is not where the bulk of my weight is located. I've looked in the mirror, I know.

I will be having my surgery on March 15th! My pre surgery appointment is 2/23. To say I’m afraid is putting it lightly! Good luck!

I had my gallbladder removed in April 2017! I’m just super nervous.

MandyKins and Cjackson82---Hi to both of you. Don't be nervous, you have a lot of new friends here on Bariatric Pal. Many like us are pre surgery, Many more are veterans and they act as mentors, sharing their wisdom with us. If you have firm dates you both have gone through pretestings, met with your surgeon's and may be about Ready to start a liquid prediet. Look how far you've come! Anesthesia has come a long way, back in the bad old days I had surgery with ether, nasty old stuff , it and chloroform, smelled bad, made you puke going in, puke waking up and gave you a nasty nasty Headache that seemed to last for days. These days it's like lying back, having a smooth relaxing sleep and don't feel bad waking up. They can give you a relaxing medicine before hand, some of us who have had surgeries call it the Don't give a s*** pill. I've heard in some places they put a powdered form under your tongue, some places they put it in your IV. The last time I went "under" was my EGD a couple months ago. I remember laying on my side, I greeted my gastroenterologist Dr Mujtaba, next thing I knew I was waking up in recovery. No headache, no sore throat even though I'd had a tube down there. This time was even better than the 1st one I had in June 2015. I've had 2 knee replacements, a thumb surgery and an broken upper arm repair all in this decade, and each one easier than the one before to wake up from. What does the surgery feel like? Well everybody feels a little different, the worse anybody has complained was it felt like they had been stabbed, one girl said she just felt bloated like she was ready to start her monthly but my good friend, Pammy, who I tend to believe, said it hurt worse the day her 5 year old head-butted her. In all probability wendykins had her gallbladder laprascopically, that is the way to go. Your surgeries shouldn't be any worse than that to get over. When I had my gallbladder out back in the bad old days 30+ years ago everything was open incisions. Had a 5-6 inch long abdominal incision to heal, wasn't all that much fun. I'll be honest, I haven't had my WL surgery done, I could be one or both of your surgery twins, my tentative date is early-mid March at Mount Carmel in Columbus Ohio. I'm 72, not one bit scared, I've done my studying up on the procedure, and honestly am more scared of not having the surgery than having it.I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. I am looking forward to using this tool to regain my health and insure a longer life. We are in it to win it, it will be a journey but with the help of my friends I'll succeed and so will you both. If you have any questions just ask, if I don't have the answer and having lived this long I usually do, one of the veterans will. Let's March forward in March together!

Thank you so much for the encouraging words. It is the anesthesia that terrifies me. But yes, your absolutely right from what I researched the process has come along way and it’s now considered safer then the surgery itself. Thank you so much for sharing. I feel better about it.

Hello everyone. I finally found a social media site that has given me piece of mind.

I don't have many friends so 0 support on Facebook. My kids are all so happy for me and they are each helping me with diffrent goals.

My surgery date is March 7th if I get approved by my insurance.

I have a Narcissistic receptionist that submits the documentation to insurance at my doctors office. Everything was done there weeks ago and she still has not submitted my paperwork.
Which is very frustrating to me.

I would love to get to know as many that are getting the surgery so I can have people to talk to.

I am vegan and struggle with several issues so working on those now.

I have had a hell of a month I fell and ripped my menicus in my right knee. The medicine that the emergency room have me messed my stomach up so bad that I constantly feel nauseous, which led to my pregnancy scare yesterday. I am not pregnant but seems my husband has super sperm because I have came out pregnant twice before 28th a IUD. I thought one of those little suckers got past it, AGAIN! So more sex for me til after my surgery. Lol

With all supplements out there I have yet to buy any.

I have not been able to eat a decent meal for about a week and a half so I am losing weight which is starting to worry me because I am not in Vitamins and have lost 10 lbs in a week. My stomach is just not having it though.

The weird thing is that my daughter brought it up to me that I am intuned with my body because this sounds like if my body is already trying to do the liquid diet. I don't know.

Well I am on and off so I hope to become friends with as many as possible. :)

Hi lovefromAZ, I'm your friendly neighborhood bariatric person. I am 72, when my arthritis isn't flaring a friendly pleasant person. I am a future RnYer, hoping for early-mid March at Mount Carmel in Columbus Ohio. If you're a future sleeved thats fine, I liken it to the difference between rifles and shotguns, they both shoot nicely and they do get the job done. I'm friends with most everybody. In my years of life I've encountered. A lot of things so can talk on any subject, sometimes i don't even need a subject. Ask anything, If I dont have an answer someone on Bariatric Pal will. Welcome again, hope you'll enjoy being here and good,luck for the future.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
