is nerves getting to anyone else?
Absolutely! I just got the call that the insurance company approved my surgery for 9/17/19. We scheduled it way out because my insurance wanted me to quit smoking for 6 months but would not approve it if I proved I hadn't smoked.

Hi. If anyone is curious I had my surgery Tuesday. As of today I’m doing well. No need for pain meds. My stomach feels still so bloated though. Like I’m pregnant! No big issues with my liquids just not that interested. Its like a job to fit everything in. Passing gas is a challenge but walking around is helpful. Any questions feel free to message me. Im more than happy to share any of it if will help! Good luck to those coming up!

Nagatha - hope you get feeling better soon. Are you a mystery buff as well? I ask due to your name. I’m a HUGE mystery/murder fan.

There are like 6 or 7 others in here with the same surgery day. I was contemplating going thru and making a list and chat that we were all in to update each other. I'm on the same day for RNY.

Mines tomorrow! Today is the only day I have to stick to a clear liquid diet. I'm wicked excited but trying to keep busy to keep my mind off of food and what's going to happen tomorrow! I'm so excited and nervous and anxious and ecstatic and happy.

My surgery is Friday. Works no all week will help to get thru the rest of the liquid diet. So far so good but having trouble getting a whole Protein Shake in, in one meal. The clear Protein drinks seem to be more palatable. Ordered some more protein chicken broth. Any others ideas for pushing thru? It has been helpful to see othersgoing thru as I am.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
