Hello surgery twin! I have my surgery scheduled for October 1 also!
In between the appointment with the surgeon and today, I've really blown off my previously successful dietary changes as a last hurrah. Tomorrow begins my preop diet so anything I've gained will come right off before my surgery date.
I'm sure you'll be great! Best of luck!

Yes-surgery twin! I am almost 2 weeks into my 4 week pre-op and I made it this far . The first week was rough as I just felt yucky and a dull roar of a headache for about 7 days. Assume it was a combo of carb withdrawal, caffeine, and sodium reduction. It did go away and I feel a ton better now besides still battling hunger ( I am sure it is all in my head though). I go to my 2 week to start full liquids on Tuesday this week (eek!). Feel like I am almost in the home stretch and have lost about 8 lbs so far on the pre-op. Let’s stay in touch on our journey! Are you getting RNY or VSG?

21 days until surgery, October 7th, 2019 is the magic day for me! After a few rounds with insurance the approval finally came through. Nervous and excited. It's nice to be able to go through this with others on here.

I'm October 1st as well. I will be having my surgery at the Bariatric Pal Hosp in Mexico. We can all be buddies! I agree, the holidays will be interesting this year! I'm trying to line up my stuff to pack as I fly down on 9/30. Can we say EXCITED?

Hi! My surgery date is October 8th! I am so very excited and nervous at the same time. How can that be possible? I am excited for this new chapter in my life. I am nervous because I have a very low tolerance for pain! Lol

Ng4345 -

I just have a high tolerance for pain. I think either you do or you don't tolerate pain well. I absolutely cannot stand pain meds! Nor do I tolerate them well. You will be fine. Don't worry. No pain no gain...right?

I hate that saying! So lame!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
