I remember back,thinking those months would never end, was I ready? was there anything I could have done better? Can I really do this thing?
But stay faithful,do your testing, watch,your diet, follow every rule,your doctor hsd, he or she has been doing this business longer than you.
And then the day will finally come. , you will be less 3 days to go. And that old bugaboo, Father Time,that,you felt wasn't cooperating,all the sudden you are riding that runaway freight train to surgery, did you pack everything you wanted to take? What are you going wear there? And have you got food stuffs ready for when you get home or are you making an emergency run to Target or another store? Do you have your laundry caught up? Nothing worse,than coming home to 3 baskets and you can't lift 10 pounds. Are the animals taken. care of, how about your spouse and kids? one thing, that I still gotta do, change out the,litter in the cat box, won't be wanting to bend over there soon
Do you have a living will,or power of attorney paperwork. Did you remember to have your insurance cards and med list? Do,you,have a charger for you cell phone. All the sudden these small,stuff worries pop up, and you kill them all. And you put a smile on your face, a song on your lips,hope in your heart, and you go check in. You're ready. you go peacefully to sleep, knowing your are safe with,the best team possible,,while you are asleep, magic will be performed , and when you wake your new life begins, and it will be,good, a little more good healing and you can utilize the changes for good.

I just got scheduled for November 21, the day before Thanksgiving! I'm bummed that I have to wait that much longer, but I'm actually sort of relieved that I won't have to face the rest of the family in a house full of food while on a liquid diet. My mother in law still would've expected me to bring a side dish even though I couldn't eat it! She is trying to be supportive but she really doesn't get it yet.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
