Hi! My surgery is on monday the 12th of july and I'm excited and scared at the same time. I keep thinking "I can stil cancell" and that's kinda reassuring...

They did a liver scan and my liver is a normal size so I don't have to do a pre-op diet. No Multivitamins either, not yet.

Did they tell you how many days you'll be at the hospital? And how many weeks will you be taking off work?

By the way, hi from Belgium!

Hi July peeps! My surgery is July 6th and I am on day 2 of the pre-op diet. Luckily I really like the Premier Protein drinks so I am not yet losing my mind lol. My doctor had me stop taking Vitamin D and any other OTC Vitamins I was taking on Monday. Oh and LeenBXL my doctor told me I would be in the hospital for one night as long as there are no complications.

My surgery is July 7th. Had my pre-op visit (blood draws) and Dexa scan today. I was also told to stop taking Multi Vitamins. I will get a shot in the hospital and then will resume taking them 2 weeks out.

Exciting! We’re the same height, similar weight, and have similar goals! Keep me updated on how you’re doing as we’re only a month apart!

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
