I just heard from my doctor that my surgery is scheduled for Jan 18th. I am super excited! I've decided on the RNY due to GERD and heartburn that I currently suffer from.

Here another one who has scheduled his surgery on 18th. I've decided the sleeve though. Good luck!

Gotta start somewhere...I like how they show it as .8000000000001 that's 8 times 10 to the negative 13th...I've no idea what that would be called LMAO

Hello all! I was scheduled for 12/13 but had to be moved to 1/11/22 because I just got diagnosed with covid :-( anyway, joining the group now! Excited for January. A little extra nervous because of the covid. I hope my doc isn’t rushing it post covid

There is another January Surgery Buddies post.. but I just wanted to put it here too...

My Jan 4 RNY procedure was just canceled until further notice due to non-vaccinated idiots taking up all the space in the hospital.

Location: Ann Arbor, MI

I'm sorry to hear that. I am worried about mine (1/18) being cancelled too. I live in MD and if the number of ICU due to covid goes above 1200 they will start cancelling non essential surgeries that require an overnight stay. We are around 1100 currently.

Thanks! Me too. She told me that they already had canceled all of December surgeries - and there were only 4 for that month. So I am 5th in line. They are only canceling the first 2 weeks of Jan for now.. but who knows. Ugh

Cue the emotional eating in retaliation of this news.

My surgery (Jan 3rd) it´s still moving on but I´ll do my pre-op appointment online instead of in-person, so the things are changing too here in Virginia and I´m worried that I the end they can call my surgery off.

Cross fingers!

Had pre- anesthesia appointment today surgery Jan 18th. All Dec surgeries cancelled at my hospital in Ohio. As of now they are saying if it is already scheduled for Jan they are still on the books but anything that was cancelled or need scheduling will be after Jan that is as of today. With this Covid who knows what will happen in the next weeks to come. Good Luck to all on keeping scheduled surgery dates.😬

Hi Buddies!! Mine is set for Jan 5th. I just completed pre-registration a couple days ago and had my last appointment before surgery with my Dr. I started my diabetic liquid diet yesterday. It will be strange not having Christmas dinner or really celebrating on New Year’s Eve but this too shall pass. Thankfully I have a very supportive family.

      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.
