Recommended Posts

Officially scheduled for December 5th. Reality is starting to set in. This is going to happen. Starting to second guess.

If you aren't 100% sure I recommend waiting until you are. You can always revisit the option later.

You don't want to regret anything, or not stick with it because you really didn't want to do it.

With that being said, it is probably just normal surgery jitters. If you had to go through any kind of pre-op process that usually take 4-6 months. You had plenty of time to think about it and talk yourself out of doing it. This is why I said that you are probably having normal jitters.

I can say, I have been reading this forum and 2 others plus in 2 FB groups for WLS. I rarely see people say they regret it, or the only regret is not doing it sooner. The people that I do read about regrets are rare and 100% of the time due to some VERY unlikely/low risk complications.

I wish you the best, always make the decision that is best for you and your needs!

I don't think I'll have any regrets, I think it's just jitters as you say. It's taken 7 months to get this far. The horse just looks bigger as you get closer.

Thanks for the well wishes.

Mine is scheduled for 12/2 and I'm a bit nervous about it too. Not really second guessing my decision but hoping that I'm one of the one's who doesn't have much pain, etc. I started my journey in June. It seemed like one delay after another and then I finally got my surgery date just to find out that I had to have another EKG done because mine was originally done in August. I found out today that the new one was abnormal (the one is August was normal). So, I'm waiting to see what I have to do next and hoping that everything is ok and that I can get clearance to have the surgery.

Everyone has these pre op nerves, we just would not be human if we didn't. I was so ready for the surgery and so sick of the pre op diet that I couldn't get to the theatre quick enough. The night before however I didn't sleep too well but I told myself to pull up my big girl pants and said bye for now to my family with a lump in my throat. Its safe surgery now adays.

Hi everyone, my surgery is scheduled for Dec 2nd. I’ve learned a lot about myself throughout this process. I agree most people say they wish they had the surgery sooner.

I'm December 14th. I've been waiting and waiting since July 2021. My insurance just had tons of hoops. I am soooo excited! I wish everyone well.

      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.
