Hello everyone!
I was approved a few days ago (after only waiting a week) and received my surgery date for December 12, 2018! I chose this date out of the few offered to me because I am currently in college and I will be able to finish up my classes prior to the surgery (which was a huge worry of mine.) It's about two weeks before my birthday too!
Anyone else scheduled out in December?
I'm scheduled for December 28th. I too am a college student. I'm 35 years old and have decided to leave my former career of retail management to become a registered dental hygienist. I had to schedule my surgery right after Christmas because I have classes all the way through the 20th.
I just started my extended pre-op diet, my current weight is 248 and theyd like me to at least reach 235 before surgery.

I currently work in logistics and I've decided that I want a career in radiology, more specifically a radiological technician. The way that my class is set up (online) I can take my final exam a couple days before my surgery, so I have about a month to recover before I start the Spring semester.

I believe I will have a pre-op diet about two weeks prior to surgery, but nothing up until then. What is your extended pre-op diet like?

Radiology technician sounds very interesting. I'm so excited for your surgery and your new career!

I attached a copy of a sample daily menu for me right now. [emoji6] 20181102_094946.jpeg

December 3rd, 2018!! So excited. I had a lapband 10 years ago and lost over 100lbs. Sadly it slipped severely, HAD to be removed 2+ years ago. I’m back to 300 lbs now and so ready for my sleeve!!!

My bestie is going thru Hershey Medical Center. Is that the same as PS Health? My mom has her bypass at HMC in 1987/88 era. Still doing wonderfully! Should have listened to her first go-around and just had the bypass. Doc said 10 years ago that I didn’t qualify for bypass.

Best of luck and keep in touch!!

My date is December 4th! It is approaching fast and I am so busy with “life” I haven’t had time to even think about it fully yet. I have two appointments Wednesday. One with the office and Pre-Op @ the hospital.

Chappy - you'll have to be the reporter back to us who are later in the month! My total excitement now includes a little fear, which I didn't have before!
