being nervous about an upcoming surgery - regardless of the kind of surgery - is very common.

as far as pain, that's pretty much all across the board - some of little to none, some do have it, but you'll be sent home with meds for it. If you're one of the people who does experience pain with it, you'll be able to manage it with the pain meds they'll give you. However, most of us seem to have little to no pain with these surgery (I had none)

LisLuva86: I’m nervous and scared too. I’m right there with you. I also start my 2 week preop diet tomorrow morning to prepare for surgery on June 1st. I guess one thing that keeps going through my mind is that I just turned 63 this past weekend and both my parents died around the same age. My Dad died in his sleep of heart failure the month before his 63rd birthday and my Mom died of lung cancer 2 months after turning 63. I keep telling myself that they were both heavy smokers and their deaths were related to the smoking. I’ve never been a smoker myself other than the second hand smoke I inhaled through my childhood. It’s scary since it’s such a big, life changing surgery. You hang in there and I’ll do the same!

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
