I had bloodwork done today. I go in on 4/17 for my Preop with surgeon... if I have lost 5-10 pounds they said they wont put me on a pre op diet.. currently I have lost more than that but it's almost that time of the month so I am gonna balloon up any second I hope they realize that :rolleyes2:

ME TOO! Being banded in Chicago tomorrow morning! Excited and nervous! I had to do two days of a liquid diet, and I'm STARVING! But I HOPE that after the surgery when I'm sore and not feeling 100%, the urge to eat won't be so strong...we can only hope! Good luck to everyone tomorrow:thumbs_up:, make sure one of us starts a new thread after we are up to it, so we can support each other!:glare:

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
