Hi Sez22,

I am getting my surgery locally, in Las Vegas on 11-28. I have about 80-100 pounds to lose. How about you? When is your surgery scheduled?

Successful surgery. Gas pain isn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I think the toughest part is standing up to walk and feeling that stretch in your abdomen. But all in all doing very well. Up to about 3 oz of Water an hour consistently, just need that 4th one and I go home.

Happy its going good for you.

I just reached the point in my preop diet that i have to drink the special drink they provided and cut one of my Snacks. I am struggling. Those of you on pure liquid preop are my new heros.

4 more days.

      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.
