Recommended Posts

What inspires you to do this?

I have been thinking of doing this for the last 5 years after seeing co-workers go through it.

Some, I have to shake my head about. I realize that I must 'remind' myself however many times a day

my reasons for doing this. It is for me, I want a better life in which I can enjoy what life has left for me.

I want my total independence back, be able to walk and run and go do all the activities I never felt strong enough to do.

YOLO. Good Luck to all of us.

You listed the reasons i went through with the surgery. I am glad i did it. Big adjustment for sure but worth it. I am two days shy of one month so i am in the learning process. I already feel about no carrying so much weight. I have a long way to go but i am on my way!

I am scheduled for February 8th. This is actually my 3rd date. The first go was cancelled because I tested positive for covid. The second, I was in the prep room with an IV, within minutes of surgery, and had a panic attack. The only reason I could think of was a very traumatic hospitalization after complications from colon cancer surgery.

Over the past 6 months, I have had so much regret at having backed out of the surgery. I have spent a lot of time self-reflecting, and just hope that I can overcome the nervousness.

I am scheduled for February 24th insurance pending. Rdy4Change, I too am nervous. I have had many surgeries over the years, C-sections, gall bladder, ovary, breast reduction and about 5 others....anything they can take they probably have lol. I always have severe anxiety before hand like insane. The last surgery I found one person, my step daughter, who is such a goofball and always keeps me laughing and jokiñg around and having her present before surgery made it a completely different situation. I would say 80% less anxiety.

Good morning! I am scheduled for a sleeve to Roux en Y revision on February 7th due to horrible GERD. Highest weight ever was 245. Lost down to 165 and now sitting at 200. Excited and nervous at the same time. I love the support and advise on this forum.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
