I am scheduled for gastric bypass on October 11th. So excited but nervous!

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.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
