12th August. It was supposed to have been the 25th, but was ready to go down to theatre and it was cancelled because the it was too hot to safely operate. At least my liver should be shrunk enough after doing the liver diet for 4 weeks !

My surgery is on 8/5 and I also did a hardcore food funeral. All your fears are normal. Its exactly what I've been fearing. Its scary to think that our lives are going to change so drastically. For me, its such a fear because food is all I know. I associate happiness with food, celebration with food, fun with food, and the list can go on, but that's about to stop. To imagine another way of life is almost impossible. I even posted a topic a few weeks ago about how I felt like this surgery was ripping a part of my heart out and tearing my culture away because food is a huge thing for Peruvians. To be honest I haven't fully conquered these fears and my surgery is this Monday :o
Last night, I stayed up late second guessing my decision and thought about why I decided to take such an extreme approach. I asked myself questions like: Why cant I just be "normal" and diet instead of cutting off 80% of my stomach? why cant I just do this without surgery? My answers to my own questions began to calm my fears and made me realize why I'm doing this in the first place. No amount of fear can outweigh the want to be HEALTHY and LIVE a life worth living. Try focusing on whats more important... Its not easy but you got this!
Well said!!!!!!![emoji108][emoji108][emoji108][emoji108]

Just got my surgery date last week. I'm having surgery on August 27th! My husband is going in the week before, on Aug 20Th. It's such a relief to see the day in sight! We have been jumping through hoops and dealing with delays since the beginning of January.

Good luck! Is your husband having this surgery too? I’ve been doing the pathway for 2and 1/2 years. I was approved for surgery last year , and told it would be November , but it didn’t happen . Then I was having it last week and it was cancelled at the last minute because of the extreme heat . They said it wasn’t safe . I’m having it on 12th August now.

Sooooo. I was just approved for my surgery on the 20th. I’m getting very nervous as the date came sooner than anticipated. I’m nervous about the pain but have been assured that my doctor keeps on top of pain & nausea after surgery. I have my pre-op appt. with my surgeon on Monday. Thank goodness he only requires 1 week liquid pre-op liquid diet. 🤣

I am August 27th too! I wish it was earlier, but I am excited to hear how things go for the rest of the August group. Where is your surgery? I am in Denver, CO.
