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

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
