Congratulations! I’m coming up on 6 months post op and I remember my preop waiting room anticipation like it was yesterday. I waited for 3 hours because the surgery before mine got complicated. So excited for you!

Congratulations! Yes, I can relate… I start my pre-op liquid diet on the 8th and my surgery is the 16th.

I’m anxious to just get this done, but also struggling with last minute nerves.

I think what we are feeling is natural. It’s a big deal (surgery and life style change), but we’ve got this!

Hang in there, just a few more days. Looking forward to your updates and progress!

WOOHOO! Your time has come.

My pre-op diet went well, was surprisingly easy for me, thankfully.

Time flew by but I was still counting down and it was all I talked about.

My surgery was also delayed the morning of because the one before me took way longer than expected. I was so ready but was not nervous at all. Pure excitement.

About 4 and half months post op now and it is going great! No complaints and no regrets.

This was the best thing to read today! I hope my surgery and recovery goes smoothly too.

D-day is finally here. Going for my gastric sleeve tomorrow (8/4). It's been a bit of a journey to get here, but it flew by at the same time. Was a bit nervous in the weeks leading up to this, but not so much today. Just looking forward to getting this taken care of to get ready to start the next chapter of this adventure. Good luck to everyone who is going through this procedure soon!

My surgery is scheduled for 8/8. I'm hungry from the liquid diet and nervous about the procedure. I am also getting restless and ready to have the surgery as soon as possible. I've been so sure about this surgery since April when I booked my first consultation. Anyone else feeling the same way?

I'm totally there with ya! I had a two-hour instructional meeting today before my pre-op appointment. It's like all of a sudden, everything is getting really real even though I have been doing the pre-op liquid diet. I'm nervous and anxious too. I think this is normal, and we should allow ourselves to relax and honor it :)

Hey!! First time in here. Mine is on the 12th, if the endocrinologist give me the go. Even thought I'm a doctor (work in the administration part), I feel anxious and I'm having trouble sleeping. I'm transitioning to the liquid diet, and by friday should be all liquid.

We are surgery twins my date is 8-8 to I am super anxious and nervous and feeling should I do this and can I maintain a healthy lifestyle after the surgery??? Driving me crazy all of the thought s going on in my mind and the liquid diet is not helping 😳. But I know this is part of the process and surgery can be scary so I just allow my feelings to flow 💚

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
