I’m also having surgery on the 27th. I’m so ready for it and the benefits of life that will come after.

I don’t know about you, but I almost feel like I have VSG fatigue. By that, I mean I think I’ve looked at every video on YouTube dealing with guys going thru this as well as read this site for the past 12 months. It almost feels anticlimactic getting to the end of my pre-op journey and starting my post-op. (Funny side note, my auto correct changed “pre-op” to “Oreo”...oh the irony).

I’m not complaining, just pontificating on a Saturday night.

No I feel the same way man. I actually waited longer than a year to get the surgery. I was trying to go through the Va and it’s like they didn’t want me to have the surgery but they rather me take blood pressure pills, continue failed weight loss programs, sleep apnea and etc. it’s been a real trial for me and I’m just thankful there is light at the end of this short tunnel now, but this process had me really upset with the VA man. I’m going to use this tool to get back to myself. When I retired in 2012 the weight just pile on and now I can finally start to get back on track

I saw you posted this on another thread, but it said post op. I started my Pre op liquid diet today. Drinking broth, Water, Protein Shake and sugar free popsicles!! Not as bad yet as I anticipated! Surgery in a week!!

      I broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
