I'm the day before you, though I'm a sleever, not a bypasser. I had my upper GI, EKG, chest x-ray, and bloodwork last week and I have my final appointment with my PCP on Thursday to clear me for surgery. Tomorrow is nearly-all-liquids diet for a week (my choice, not a requirement, but applauded by my surgeon). I am RIGHT THERE with you on the anxiety! It's been ramping up bigtime. That's why I've been posting like a caffeinated squirrel on here.

I'm the 13th... and I'm so anxious... It got really bad yesterday morning. I have been preparing since January and I don't want to back out, but I'm just a ball of nerves.

I just had my pre-op appointment with my Dr....they are moving sleeve patients to outpatient surgery, but there's a chance that my bypass will have to be rescheduled....I'm going to be so devastated!!!! I've even had 3 Covid shots!!!!

I was just informed this morning that mine may have to be postponed due to Covid.....and if I haven't heard from them by Thursday of this week to give them a call.

That's awful. I hope that doesn't happen to you! I've heard of that happening to people a lot recently. I'm hoping mine won't be cancelled due to COVID. Our numbers aren't too bad here in Boston.

Oh no... here's hoping you can squeak by and get it done! I'm nervous too but our county posts the numbers every day and they've started to level off so hopefully I'm in the clear.
