I had my final consult with my surgeon yesterday and he was concerned that my Iron levels were low. He has asked me to have an Iron infusion (sounds very new age lol) before surgery in just over a months time. Anyone else had to do this

I had 4 iron transfusions in July, it brought my levels up from a 7 to 11. I actually have more energy than before.

More than a little anxious. Being a responsible adult and making sure things like my living will and such are up to date, and the impending doom of the 2 week liquid diet soon, have me a little stressed lol. But really, it's only human to be, so it doesn't bother me too much.

I am a little anxious too. I just had my pre op physical today and Tuesday is my pre admission appointment. It is helping to have family here as i really helps pass the time quickly!

I go the day after Labor Day! Hope my surgeon doesn’t party too much. The surgery is at 730 I have to be there at 6. Hoping it’s a one night stay.

Hey everyone, I am nervous! September 10th is coming up fast! But more nervous about the liquid-5 day diet, the gas after the surgery I’ve heard about and how to eat in the following weeks after. I can’t wait for the tool to be my new life. It I am so scared about all the stuff leading up to that and shortly after.

I have heard people mention Gas X melting strips, but I cant find them anywhere even on the company website...

      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.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      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!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

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