I was supposed to have been scheduled for mid to late August. I called and messaged the RN who was supposed to schedule it for me finally 2 weeks later I get a message saying sorry I forgot to schedule it before I left for my 2 week vacation and that the soonest the surgeon has available was October 4th. Talk about frustrating I wanted to reach through the phone and grab her and shake her and tell her she better fix it and make it for August but I tried to calm down and just go with the flow and time has actually gone by really fast so trying not to be too mad at her lol

Hello, Oct 3 is myGastric bypass . Need a surgery buddy to help each other out if possible. I’m on a 3 week liquid diet due to my high BMI before surgery. It’s tough everywhere you turn around are temptation. Just need to keep the final results in my head.

Mine is scheduled for October 11th.

I don't eat fast food (too expensive), or drink. I've been doing ok with my diet. I lost 14 lbs but then gained 2.

I'm scared about the surgery, and feel unprepared.

I'm done with all my pre-op appointments and requirements. Just waiting for the doctor's scheduler to call me to get me on schedule. I spoke to my patient coordinator who said October 26th is still open for surgery appointments, so fingers crossed it's on that day.

My sister, who recently had lower gastro surgery, had to give up caffeine after surgery for a few months, and had terrible withdrawal headaches in additional to surgery pain. She recommended I switch to Decaf coffee way before surgery. Just thought I'd share this piece of advice. 🙂 Best of Luck to all us October surgeries!

I start my liquid diet on the 19th. I have 11 days of full liquid and 3 days of clear.

October is a month of life changing experiences for us all. Feeling nervous, having second thoughts, eating all our favs prior to commencement, is what's going through all our minds. We are all on a journey to better our health, prolong our life & most of all feel good about ourselves. We've got this. Prayers for us all.
