Congratulations! My surgery is 5/23. It's exciting and nerve wracking all in 1 but I'm getting more excited now. Yay May surgery buddy :-)

5/11 over here! I'm so ready and nervous at the same time. Just keep telling myself I'll feel so much better in 6 months. I'd rather deal with some stomach discomfort than heave ho this fat through life.

Yes!!! Let's do this! I just had my band removed months ago. Surgeon wanted everything to heal well, so I have been patiently waiting for the sleeve. My surgery date is May 2nd! My insurance approved the surgery in 1 day after it was submitted. I was totally shocked being that the insurance was from the "Obama Care"So now after having gone through surgery twice, (once to put in band and once to take it out) I'm preparing for the post op period again. Toilet seat riser was a must for me! I also rented a small hospital bed from my local pharmacy which helped me tremendously with band post op and getting in and out of bed.

Also don't forget to order your chewable vitamins! I love the Unjury brand. They have everything you need in 1 chewable.

My sleeve is scheduled for 5/7! So excited and nervous! I’ve been a longtime lurker on this site and now that I’ve got my date it doesn’t feel real!

My VSG is scheduled for May 17th! Excited, but nervous. Glad to see that I’ll have some surgery buddies. [emoji4]

Awesome! I want to know all the gory details. LOL. Seriously though, I’m way more nervous than I thought I would be. Glad to have some company!

Anyone doing anything special before the surgery? Training, changing eating habits, taking a trip, etc? For me, my birthday is next week so I’m going to Barbados. I’ll be back a week or so before I have to start the liquid diet.

Awesome! I'm trying to keep myself calm as it gets closer and think of all the changes I will have. We'll have to keep each other updated. Good luck on your journey :-)
