I have to do the endoscopy on 1/17 and then I can schedule. Pretty sure I will be in February! Lapband to bypass revision. Can’t wait to have a date.

I had lapband in the past as well, but I didn't go from that to this and I wish I did back then! I wish you luck! Can't wait. It's getting more real and I'm starting to get nervous haha

I'm scared too, but we will be fine! I've done the preop diet before when I had lapband in 2009. It's not all that bad, I started to get sick of the Protein Shakes. Then again, I only had one flavor, so definitely grab a few different ones. The only thing that is really different this time that I can remember is that I'm allowed one meal a day up until the day before surgery (I'll have to see if a few days before surgery is different)

Hi everyone! I'm scheduled for a gastric sleeve on February 8th. Excited and nervous at the same time.


That feeling that something can impede it is killing me

Me and my fiancé are doing this together she wanted her surgery on the 15th. Unfortunately it’s not happening, her surgeon doesn’t have surgeries that day. It’s funny because we could’ve had a romantic liquid diet dinner and Vitamin chews lol

I am having the sleeve done on Monday, February 6th! I start my pre-op diet on Monday, January 23rd... and oh sweet jeebus, I am nervous for the pre-op diet!!!! Not very nervous for the post-op stuff, as I won't be AS hungry, having a smaller stomach and all... but this pre-op diet stuff is freaking me the hell out!!!

I'm in Germany and I'm doing my surgery in Turkey, I don't have any strict instructions before the surgery, to be honest. Just no heavy food one day before the surgery. From 23:00 o'clock until midnight I am allowed to drink Water. After midnight, I'm not allowed to have anything, including water. That's it.
The liquid phase comes after surgery, and then the Purée phase and so on...
But I will definitely get more flavors for tha shake. [emoji16]

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
