My RnY has FINALLY been scheduled for September 2nd. I was just about to get a surgery date in March when my state shut down due to COVID19.

I wasn't a bit nervous earlier this year when I thought I would be getting surgery in April, but now I am like, AAAAAAAAAAGH! 😱😱

My surgeon told me I will be in the OR for twice as long because I had a fundoplication surgery before and they have to undo that first. He also said I shouldn't be surprised if I have complications due to previous scarring from the fundoplication and my two kidney transplants (there is a whole lot o' things going on in there) But I am praying that I will miraculously come through with no problems. God is good.

So yeah,😏 I could use a buddy.

My surgery is sept 2 , getting a little nervous

Same here. Still questioning if I am doing the right thing. I am so afraid that I will cause myself more health problems. But I am trying to just take it one moment at a time.

I am having a revision from Lap-Band to Bypass on Sept 14th. I'm sooo ready to have the band gone but I'm nervous as heck to have the bypass, excited as well. I'm all over the place! 😀

Me too! I’m scheduled for October 14. Do you have to have an endoscopy before your surgery? My doc wants to make sure there are no surprises with the lap band removal on the day of surgery. 😳 I’m looking forward to getting this weight under control once & for all but...yes I’m scared too.

If it hadn't been for the lockdown, it would have taken about 3 months. Now I am scheduled for Sept. 2, so 6 months in all. A tip: Try to schedule as many of the tests as you can into as few days as possible. It was a real pain in my butt to go back and forth for the various appointments and tests!
