Welcome!!! You go 5 days before me lol

Thanks for the warm welcome and also for starting this thread. I have a feeling that we're on the verge of something great and it's nice to connect to others are going through the same things. By the way, your screen name has given me an ear worm and I kinda love it. I was thin when that song came out! Lol

It makes me happy that we actually have a great group of people who we can turn to if needed. I mean unless you're embarking on this journey, you cant fully understand how exciting, scary, and wonderful this is. A great example is my wonderful husband, he supports me but I know I drive him nuts talking about it lol. Smashing Pumpkins helped get me through high school but so did 80s hair bands lol my parents raised me loving the 80s even though I'm a 90s baby (lol) and Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins were ahead of their time.

You're so young to be an 80's hair band lover but I love that you are! That was my high school music (I'm 46). Hair nation is my go to Satellite radio station. :) 🤘

Anyone having a "last meal" per say of something that is a favorite now but you know you won't be able to enjoy for a long long time or ever again depending on what it is? I haven't had Pasta since I started my journey in January and my nutritionist recommends no breads or pasta after surgery even when cleared for regular diet. I think I may have myself a good old fashioned plate of spaghetti (1/2 cup serving size!) and home made meatballs. I don't have a liquid pre-op diet in my program so I have some time to decide.

Since a few of us are from the Chicago area and are having surgery around the same time, would anybody be interested in a Chicago area meet up?

Depending on where and when it is, I might actually be willing to make the drive down from Madison for it, since it's only a couple of hours out. I might also drag my husband along, since he'll be fairly close to this cohort, just a couple of months behind 😊

I'm going to allow myself one small splurge before the surgery, and it's probably going to be the Brazilian grill, since I know it will be a while before most meats are OK without being pureed 😜 It's also partly a buffet, which might be pretty pointless for me after surgery, since I won't "get my money's worth" 😄

Mine is going to be Sushi. Sushi is the food of the Gods lol. I have a mandatory 2 week pre op diet but I'm going to start it a week early.

Btw Slash is my future husband. So is Nikki Sixx though LOL

Alex76, I think this is a lovely idea. I am in the southern suburbs but would love to meet others who are going through the journey. My date is June 3rd. Keep us posted if you want to meet up.

How is everyone doing? When are yall starting your liquid diet?

I haven't started my liquid diet, yet. I have my pre-op seminar/workshop on Tues (05/13)

And then my final clearance/decision day with the doctor on 05/16. I will check back in to let everyone know if everything is a final go. I started a discussion in regards to an abnormal ecg. All of my other tests came back alright. So I am nervous about the ecg. So we will see. Come on June 3

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
