DUM!!!....

SO! Hopefully tomorrow will be my big day, I was originally scheduled a week ago and got booted cuz the hospital was in "Crisis Mode"

(I'm in AZ and lot's of snowbirds here sucking up our resources! haha.. j/k birdies)

AND My Dr's wife is about to have her baby anyday.. so I might get cancelled AGAIN!! I'm hoping that all the people that were sick taking up my bed last week are well.. AND that my Dr's wife had her baby already!!

So Wish me luck and say prayers for me PLEASE and Thank you! :cursing:

Hi Maya314, I just got banded on Tuesday, 2/19. Who's your doc? Mine is Dr Blackstone with the Scottsdale Bariatric Center. She's great.

Hi! Glad to hear all went well for you. I know what you mean about the snowbirds. Sorry Snowbird...I don't mean you. I hope you continue to do well. I just got my PCP to refer me to a surgeon. Now the fun begins after I meet with the surgeon. All the pre op stuff you know what I mean.

I got banded in Atlanta by Dr. Davis @ Emory. Been OK since tues, with a little gas pain-boy, did my 1st "food"taste awesome this morning!!-a few Tbls of thin grits & marg..Though I'd never hear myself say that..

Good luck & keep in touch..

MaYa314 You sounds as excited as I feel. I'm scheduled for surgery 02/29. Can't wait! You know.... I've read alot about people on Pre-Op diets but my doctor doesn't make his patients do a pre-op diet. Just Clear Liquids 1 day before surgery. I guess I got lucky. :blush::smile2:

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
