Anyone else having surgery in October?

So excited for you guys! I would love to hear more about you and your journey. I am 49, live in Austin and have struggled with weight my whole life. My surgery is actually a revision from the lap band to gastric bypass. I've spent the last three months researching like crazy and feel really great about this life changing decision!

I am 46, live in WI. I also originally had the lapband and actually lost a lot of weight. I was down to 135 at one point. I had to have it removed almost 3 years ago due to complications and have almost gained all of my weight back. I will say, having it removed felt really great after having it for over 10 years.

So nice to meet you! I'm sure you will achieve great success with this surgery!

The lap band was horrible for me. Can't wait to have it out. I'm sorry you had complications.

Nice to meet you, too. Lab band is horrible. It makes me sad to see that drs are still putting them in patients in some parts of the country. You can’t find any dr around here who will do it. I think it gives people a false sense of safety because it is less evasive, but that is not necessarily true. Not to mention the quality of life. Anyway, on to better things! We will both be successful. 🙂

Hi guys!! I’m Tamika 37 living in DMV area. I am having the gastric sleeve surgery. I’ve also struggled majority of my life with weight and have lost some over the years but every regain seems to double the loss. I have had thoughts of doing this surgery for a while but honestly shied away because the lap band was mostly the only option at the time but I didn’t want to take the risk. Once I learned of the sleeve I started researching it and finally taking The steps to start the process. I have been working really hard to live a healthier lifestyle but progress always seems little to none so I’m hopeful this tool will help me to finally achieve my goals.

Hi Tamika! Your story sounds very familiar. My dr. has recommended gastric bypass for me since I struggle so much with acid reflux. I am excited to get back on track and feel healthy.

I’m getting the bypass on Oct 6.
I’m so excited, but nervous about the physical recovery. I have a physical job and want to be safe, yet be able to go back to work.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
