Tenative May 7 date for me. I’ve been stalking this page for a while, but figured I’d sign up when I got my surgery date. I’m waiting for a peer to peer review before my insurance company will cover me. Fortunately my Surgeons staff has been very helpful in letting me schedule before we get final approval. This process has been considerably longer than I expected going in. I guess the additional time has given me the opportunity to do all the research I needed to make sure I’m making the right choice.

That's my day too! I start my pre-op one week diet on April 30th. I've had all my tests so I'm ready to go. I'm getting excited for the big day!

I know what you mean about the process taking longer than you expected. My first visit with the doctor was October 18th and I'm so glad that surgery is right around the corner. Good luck and keep us posted!

Hi Everyone!! I finally got my call from the doc office and I am officially scheduled for 5/21 for surgery and 5/2 for my pre op appt. I think my doc requires a 2 week Liquid Protein diet. Is that what everyone is doing? I am excited to get this party started! I can't wait to get my health back on track! Anyone with lower BMI (<37)?

Congratulations! My BMI fluctuates 36.5-37.5. I began my pre op diet yesterday, surgery 5/3/18. I very relieved to say that my diet is not Liquid Protein only. I have to do liquid Protein for breakfast but can have lean meat or egg whites and as many vegetables as I want for both lunch and dinner. They're even allowing me 2 fruits a day, I was surprised about that. Today is my second day and, for me, I've been hungry until lunch.

Just want to let everyone know I've tried the Unjury brand vanilla and chocolate splendor flavors and they are delish! They're having a 10% discount on them that ends TODAY. If you're interested www.unjury.com I'm going to try making them and freezing for a frozen treat. They mix well and are not really thick, I think that's why so many have said they like this brand post op. There are other flavors but haven't tried them yet. I'll update.

As I told someone yesterday I tried my 1st Premier Protein yesterday. I had put a few packs on my in-game shelf, until someone tells me different,early May in my mind. Anyway,i slept,in yesterday morning, okay I confess, I had been up,too late reading and,posting on Bariatric Pal. Had a doctors appointment,with PCP, no,time for brekky so I grabbed a Peachs and Cream. Not bad ,not bad at all. Avery fait evaporated milk aftertaste. I think I could stand to drink these, but ask me again when I'm on them post surgery.Another thing worth a small chuckle-- right on the side of the Little milkcarton type container "not for use in weight reduction" who do they think they are fooling? At $7,27 a 4 pack who would be drinking,this besides us, maybevrinners and other atheletes? Soda is cheaper as well as a,milkshake at our old nemesis Mickey D. 😛

So they are doing my EDG May 11 and surgery the 25th or the 30th. This hurry up and weight so the weight will hurry up and go is making me nuts! I have been cutting out sugar and cutting way back on caffeine and I have been a bear. My son said he is about ready to hand me a twinkie and a diet coke so I will be nice! Trying hard to keep the grumpy to myself.

You may be having the melody in this weight loss choir but I'm right there singing harmony with my high alro-low soprano voice. I've told my son we are going to put out a vegetable garden,i was romping and stomping around the house in a crabby mood. He said "mom would this be a good time for me to go dig the garden?"
I just screamed "Whatever"
Our boys are going to need umpire padding before this comes to a conclusion👍🙈🙉🙊

I understand! I am on day 2 of my liquid diet and starting to get a little irritable. Primarily because I would love to eat the Unjury broth for 2 meals but it has too much sodium so I am stuck with the shakes! Plus the instructions say to have 5 shakes a day but each shake has 25g of Protein so if I have 5 I go over the 100 g limit for protein. The very low calorie intake is making me very tired. Wish I could just sleep. Hope to adjust to this soon! I have 12 days to go! :)

Good luck with your cutting back!

You too! I know we can do the temporary cut backs. I just might have to not see anyone there months or so! Still super excited and I know it will be worth it. Hope your 12 days go by fast for you!

My surgery is scheduled for May 8th. I switch back and forth between nervous and excited every 5 minutes. I started my pre-op today... I haven't really been hungry, but I'm bored of it already!

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").
