Hello

Me too, mine is 3rd July.

Surgery on your birthday! What a fantastic way to kick off another year. Similar for me, my birthday is 11th July. No cake for either of us this year!!

What are you guys doing for your pre-op diet? I started mine this week...a bit early but I was treating every day like it was the last supper so I thought "enough". Also, I'm having revisionary surgery as I already have a gastric band, so I want to make sure my insides are as prepared as can be :D I'm on milk and greek yoghurt. Day 4 and I'm finding it OK.

I had my lapband removed September 15. I'm doing Protein Shakes, sugar free Jello, sugar free popsicles, blended Soups, and tons of Water.

Hi peggilyn, did you consider having band removal and sleeve done at the same time? How long had you had the band? Mine has been in 12 years. I’m worried that there’ll be too much scar tissue so might be a risk the sleeve can’t be done at the same time, or that I’ll have a “big” sleeve at the top to divert from the scar tissue.

Happy Birthday and Happy Rebirthday all in one, this will make the rest of July anticlimactic. Best of everything now and in the future.

My band was removed in September 2015 because it was cutting circulation off to the top 1/3 of my stomach. I have a good bit of scar tissue but can have the sleeve done. I'm nervous about my surgery, but am beyond ready to have it done!
