Had my first appointment today with the surgeon. She was great! I was able to ask questions, and tell her about where I'm coming from/why I'm pursuing this opportunity all that. Gave me things to start thinking about in preparation.

She said she'd recommend the bypass instead of the sleeve, which is what I was going for. Doesn't see any medical problems that cause her concern.

Asking about a timeline what to expect, anddddddd she said that within the next 4 months I should be able to meet the requirements! I need to lose another 25 pounds to meet the weight for ideal safety. I've lost 12 pounds in the last 3 weeks. Super excited!! After I get that last 25 off, I have to do blood work and get cleared by the phychiatrist.

It's such an exciting journey.. Doesn't it feel that much more 'real' once the meetings begin?? Personally, I am so excited for the journey to my new future self. I know it's going to be a BIG change, but I know it's going to be 100% worth it.

Yes it doesssss. I've been reading everything I can get my hands on, and researched the surgeon. I practically felt like it was a fake thing until she walked in. Then, on my way out the check out receptionist gave me a bag with the presurgical soap wash with instructions. So that "I'm ready for surgery once I get my date". I have it on my desk so it's an everyday reminder. Yes, this is really happening!

We got this!! 🤯😁😁

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
