Welcome to the Class of 2020 as @Greeteal calls it, lol. Our January family is growing and getting very close. Are you excited, nervous, or etc.? Do you know if you have to liquid diet, if so joe long?

Hi there...my surgery date is also on 1/31/2020! I’m having the sleeve and It’s with Dr. Bello at GBMC. Now, I’m starting to get more excited but I am definitely still nervous too. Although I’m doing quite a bit of preparation, I’ve joined support groups, and I have a solid core network of support with family and friends and with my Drs, nutrionist, RN, and everyone here so I’m feeling pretty positive about this new journey! I can’t wait!!

Thank you! I'm excited. I'm so ready to love myself, and feel better! I do have to do liquid diet, it's for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after. I go for my pre-OP work on 1/6. But if I remember correctly, after the post-OP liquid diet, I'll be on puree's for 3 weeks, then soft foods for 2 weeks and regular food for a week to see if I can tolerate it. But I'll find that out for sure on my preop appointment!

I was so excited to see we were surgery date twins when I saw your post! Seems we’re in the same boat as far as our excitement and nervousness. I think that’s normal. Looking forward to sharing our journey togethe! 💕

Yes, I read your profile. We are both Virgos, lol. I have been so excited as I continue with preparing for next month. I'm so excited to finally meet our immediate peer group. I will be posting and updating often, its been keeping me focused and I'm learning more about life as a wls person in the real world and actual everyday scenarios. This site is full of great questions and answers, I don't think the Dr. can answer all of these questions because each experience is different and so is the patient's experience to this major life changing event.

Welcome and how exciting. Are you required to do a preop diet? Nervous? Support system?

My pre-op is tomorrow, 12/24- Christmas Eve! Surgeon is Dr.Chu at Kaiser Fremont, CA. My surgery will be 1/7 & I’m so psyched! I have my Vitamins, muscle milk, broths & am ready! I’m afraid of the first 1-2 weeks because I hear they are a bit difficult. Fingers crossed!!!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
