Thanks! If I live, I've got important goals that need to be addressed!

You are too funny, you sound like my husband. I don't want the state to get custody of my dogs either. My husband thinks I am nuts that I am not worried about the procedure, I am worried about leaving my dogs. I have to travel 5 hours so my husband will not be home at night.

BTW the important question to ask the surgeon is if they will perform the operation in its entirety. I was not open to being a teaching case with this, though I did let students check out the results during rounds.

Good point. I always tell the surgeons when I have surgery that residents may watch but no touch. My doc will be doing the surgery herself since I have severe gastroparesis and I have a gastric stimulator. I also have a lot of adhesions due to open abdominal surgeries. Hopefully this surgery will take care of the gastroparesis for good.

      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,  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.
