I want to see those October Sleevers!



Recommended Posts

Anyone have their sleeve surgery scheduled for next month? I will be traveling from the MidWest to have mine at Blossom Bariatrics in Las Vegas on 10/9 😤 Also will be my first time in Vegas!

Starting the pre-op diet next Thursday and I have to admit...I'm just feeling like having a food funeral for all of my favorite meals. Scared I will develop complications and be super far away from my surgeon/medical team. At the same time, I am SO excited to have this tool to get ahold of my life!

I would love to keep in contact with some fellow October newbies.....

I’m scheduled for 10/29. Haven’t started the pre-op yet. Not until the 15th.

Im scheduled for next week but can surely agree with the pre op diet worries. I have modified my diet since July when I scheduled but as soon as the two weeks approached I wanted everything I shouldn't have. I find that I do best when I follow a full liquid diet and not incorporate meat and veggies....I don't know why that is but on those days I do liquids and will have cottage cheese. When I try the meat and spinach I always become tempted to add other foods. I wish you well with your surgery.

I had a great experience there in September. The staff was great and knowledgeable (most had the procedure at Blossom). Good luck next week!

Surgery Oct 1, returning to work on Oct 21st. I was originally going to go on the 17th, but I had that brief post op complication. I had the bypass though. I heard the sleeve recovery is much faster! @Nice1

      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!

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