It will be fine and the reward is worth it. The tough part is a month after adjusting to the new way of eating. Good luck!

I had mine a month ago, and I haven't had any complications so far, I was super anxious and shaking before the surgery, but found out it was all in my head and non of my concerns actually happened after surgery. you will just have some tolerable pain during the first week and it will start getting better gradually, I have zero regrets so far, and you woudn't too hopefully ❤️

My nerves didn't set off until we were in the car. On our way, I told my husband, "If we hit traffic for any reason, we are going out to a nice Breakfast instead ". It was smooth sailing the whole way. Then in the elevator in the parking garage, the back wall was glass, looking out over a court yard. There was a huge flag flying the said, "Let's get Healthy together." I almost cried. I was searching for a negative sign all morning and the universe threw a positive sign at me.

Nerve are normal, I'd be more afraid if a person didnt get a little nervous before a surgery.

Relax, take a deep breath and remind yourself why you are doing this. And. Let's get healthy together. 😊

The best of luck, and health.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
