Mine is July 3rd and I'm in NC. I'm excited too!!! YaY Us.

Hey Em_Jay,

How's it going? Are you getting ready for your surgery date? Mine is further out but I still need to get all the Vitamins and stuff for the pre-surgery diet. I am anxious to just get through it. I am getting nervous reading horror stories on here. I am so terrified of vomiting! My surgeon insists I shouldn't get sick if I am following the rules unless there is a complication of some type. How long do you plan to be off of work? I plan on 2 weeks but I may work from home some the second week.

Well, just wanted to say hi! Hope you're having a good weekend!

Hey Megan,
I've been preparing slowly. I have all of my Vitamins, but am still leery about stocking up on too much Protein since I've read our taste buds can change after surgery. Don't want to be stuck with something that's disgusting! I haven't purchased a single thing for the pre-op diet because they haven't told me what I will be having.

My pre-surgery appointment is the 18th - we have a group appointment when we go over the diet etc., then an appointment with the psychologist, then the surgeon to review everything and ask any questions, and last of all we go over and pre-register @ the hospital.

I'm excited and nervous!! I fear the foamies!! I've read some experiences with it and it appears to be dreadful! I am also not looking forward to the Lovenox Injections we have to do. It appears that things can either be super easy or super awful, but after a while it seems to settle for everyone. It's getting closer!! Our lives are about to change! 🙌🏼

Hello, I have just joined the forum today and starting to feel a little overwhelmed. I am due to have my gastric by pass in the UK on 23rd July. Would love to join your group and have some support with what everyone else is going though. I have also hidden this from my family (apart from my husband) as I want to protect my son from what I am doing. Told people I am having my gall bladder removed!! I have been told to start a liver shrinkage diet three weeks before the op. I haven't really started preparing anything yet apart from ordering the Vitamins.

July 25th! Its so far! Wish it was closer

Mine is set for July 25th, too! It looks like I have a ventral hernia though, so I may have to reschedule if I want the doc to fix that, too. He's got multiple surgeries that day, so I'm thinking he may need more time. Seeing him again in a couple of weeks to discuss that.

Hey Poppygirl, I'm a bit overwhelmed also! Trying to stay positive. I'm having Hernia Surgery @ the same time so I have left it @ that - I'm having surgery to repair a bad hernia. I don't really want to share what I'm doing with everyone as I have enough to worry about than what everyone will think. 😉

gr8ful1,

I think most surgeons will repair it at the same time instead of doing two separate surgeries. Hopefully yours will!

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
