How are you dealing with the PreOp fear? [emoji28]

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)

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]

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

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