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.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
