March 7th, I'm getting the bypass! My first appointment was the very end of December, so it's been a whirlwind. I'm excited!

Edit: I was so excited, I made a typo 🤣 first appointment was end of November. Still fast...but not crazy crazy fast!

Tentatively, I will be joining the March group. I have a final hurdle of a 2/13/23 ECG to get cardiac clearance as required by the surgeon. In preparation, I have already had my "food funerals" and have started cutting carbs. I have also been psyching myself up to mentally prepare for the pre-op diet.

Fingers crossed that I will be joining you in "Marching" toward a renewed focus on health!

Good luck March surgeries and congrats on taking this step. I was sleeved 12/5. The two biggest comforts to my recovery were an electric heated blanket and sugar free popsicles.

The heated blanket really helped soothe the gas discomfort that can be expected in the first week and any soreness.

Best of luck.
Thanks for the advice my surgery is March 1st

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
