New here!

My projected month was October but given everything goes to plan when I see my doc next week (I must be less than when I was last there...which is gonna be slightly hard, since my weight was wrote incorrectly the last time I was there! ) Anyhow, my surgery should be Sept 10th! Wish me well next week at the doc!

To quote Dr Suess
Oh the Places you will Go----
Oh the Things you will See! But Welcome to our World, the Minor heart aches are more than outweighed by the MAJOR benefits. Very very few of us would even want to return to where we were before, I have had a strangely difficult road to recovery but I would never ever return to the Frustr8 I was before September 5th 2018. She was obese, sick, had given up on herself and almost life itself. No No. Never Ever Again will I Be There! I'm down over 140 pounds since then, don't know if I have gotten cuter, cuteness is optional at 73 , but people no longer ignore the fat lady in the corner, I'm living large with a much smaller body and I am a Force to Contend With, like my Country Soul Sister Reba McEntire I'M NOT GOING OUT LIKE THAT ! I'm sassy , RedHeaded and a Strong Proud Person Now. So let's hear your stories too, okay?

I have my VSG pre-op on the 21st next week. Are there any questions I should make sure to ask my surgeon?

I'm definitely going to ask about any pre-op diet. He's mentioned it in passing before, so hopefully it will be fully explained and not too long!

Hmm let’s see. When I went today, I asked the following:
Expected stay in hospital
Blood clot prevention- I have a history of one
Post op, does my Protein fluids count in the 64 I’m supposed to drink

Pre-op, I didn’t really have too many. He went through the meds he’d be ordering for after. He gave me a hand out for my pre-op diet. It’s fairly straight forward, so it was pretty easy to understand.
Oh I did ask if I needed to buy Vitamins and he said other than B1(thiamin) I won’t take any until I transition to soft foods at week 3.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
