Hello,

I was approved for surgery last Thursday and scheduled the actual surgery date for May 15th. I am beyond excited! I am pleased with how smooth the insurance approval went. It took one day to get an approval so thankfully I did not have to wait. Anyone else have surgery in May? And for those of you who have already had surgery what do I pack in my hospital bag? I am so looking forward to this next chapter in my life.

Insurance required me to lose 40 pounds...I can not gain from now to surgery... I was excited today...as the day went on, I started getting nervous...I have 2 children...a 20 year old away at school and a almost 7 year old...

I had my surgery yesterday. I was sent home today. I packed one pair of yoga pants, a t-shirt, socks and a toothbrush. It was more than enough. PACK LIGHT!

The yoga pants were ok for me however, I probably should have packed something a little bit more loose fitting. Keep that in mind. You don’t want anything hugging your incision sites.

I will be having my surgery at St. Lukes in Houston, TX. 36 days to go. I swear May cannot get here fast enough!

Yay! Are you nervous at all? How long is your liquid diet? I have my pre op visit on May 8th so I'll only be on liquids for a week.

How is your recovery coming along?

I am nervous...but the nerves go up and down. I have a feeling it will be overwhelming the day of surgery... my liquid diet is 3 days prior to surgery. I have my pre op on April 26th. How are you coping with it all?
