Hi everyone! I am a bit nervous about surgery but I’m definitely anxious and ready to conquer this milestone in my life

Congrats on your upcoming surgery! I had mine three and a half months ago now. The surgery part wasn't that bad... it was the gas that was a pain and trying to get Fluid in. No regrets though!

So I am now awaiting the approval/denial process by my insurance and I can say I am SO ANXIOUS! My hopes is to have surgery in the next couple of months meaning June or July but I’m trying very hard not to think that far

congrats! I’m waiting for my doctor to call me w/ a date and then they’re submitting me. my insurance doesn’t require much so I think I’ll be good but it’s still nerve wrecking! hopefully we’ll be June or July surgery buddies 💃🏽

I think this forum has been doing me well with dispelling a lot of my anxiety/fears. The one thing I was missing in my pre-op was a support group and this has been helpful. @BobbieRhea I think that the more you browse, the more it'll help. You got this!

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
