I’m scheduled for surgery on August 15th. I had a bad experience the last surgery I had. Not with anesthesia, but had a bad infection after. Lately I have been having dreams about going under. A few days ago I woke up yelling no and felt like I couldn’t breathe. Last night I had another dream I kept trying to take the mask off. Is this normal? Should I reschedule until this subsides.

Hello Deegirl31[emoji870] Yes it's absolutely normal!!! Especially after a previous bad experience with infection!
Just keep reminding yourself how safe this surgery is and due to previous complications, extra precautions should be taken by both you and your surgical team.

If I were you, I won't cancel or reschedule as your anxiety is normal and protective.
Keep watching/reading successful surgeries and recoveries should help ease your mind.

PS:
Our names are very similar and your surgery date is a day before mine! I'll be watching, praying and cheering you on as you go before me.
Cheers to seeing you on the other side soon[emoji112][emoji112][emoji112][emoji112]

Deedee12 thank you! I honestly didn’t know why it was happening. I try to read as much positive information as I can and I do feel this is the best decision for me. I love looking at the before and after and reading all the success stories. I’m not trying to seek attention or be self-serving I’m just more nervous than I thought I was I guess. I’m trying to get as much information I can. Having any more surgery is terrifying to me and I have to have one more after the sleeve. Which is the reason for the sleeve. I am very confident in my surgeon, he gets my history and understands my situation so much I cried. It’s hard to find a dr that “gets it”. I noticed our names, and it’s really neat we are a day apart! I will be watching out for you and praying for success as we go through this together. Thank you for your great advice, I do feel better about what’s happening. ❤️

      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.
