Scared but excited

I got my date yesterday. 1/22/2022

When I met with the surgeon he told me he had never seen any go thru the process as fast as I have. Hopefully I am ready and they didn’t just approve me early? I’m total it was about 2 months of appointments.

Well I’m sure you went through all the same steps as everyone else you just did them faster. It’s pretty typical to be nervous even for those who have waited years to get a date but if you really don’t feel ready you can always ask for a later surgery date.

I had my surgery june 2nd at Bellevue hospital In NYC and from consultation to surgery the entire process was a little bit under 3months thats real good some folks are told they have to do 6 months of groups and nutritionist appointments.

Are you sure that surgery date is correct? It's a Saturday. Make sure you follow all pre-op appointments and requirements.

Yup that’s the right date. I’m in Minnesota and they are finding Saturday Surgeries aren’t being canceled as often as weekday. My Surgeon does about 3-4 sleeves a Saturday!

You’ll be fine! Worst part of it is probably the Gas pains for the first few days. Make sure you start walking as soon as you can. I was insisting on walking just hours after surgery, the incisions themselves don’t really hurt.

when I got home someone suggested I start right away on some Miralax and Gas-x, that really saved me.
