Thank you!

I would not have made it through all of this with out you all. And I think it was you, Aculberg, that told me to go for it back in June when I was snooping here on the boards and just looking into it. Thanks everyone for your support!

I'm so happy for you! When is your pre-op appt? I start my clear liquid pre-op diet next Tuesday, and I'm trying to get ready for that, and I've been stocking up on things for the all liquid phase after the surgery. I've even been cooking huge meals and freezing them for my family for afterwards, I think theyre gonna hate me! lol At least for the first month or so!

My preop appt is Sept 26th. My surgeon requires that you can not take pills again, unless they are crushed..meds must be liquid. So I have been looking for Vitamins and Protein Shakes. One of my coworkers sells Shakelee products and they have liquid vitamins, and their shakes are pretty good. Also, nectar sent me several free sample packages of Protein shakes. I don't think that my approval has set in yet. Seems like it has been a long journey but really only about 4 months.

Congratulations on your approval and upcoming surgery. It pays to fight for what you want. Hopefully I will get my approval next week. Maggie:thumbup::tt2:

WOW I'm glad my doc lets us take pills if we can! LOL in fact for my pain postop he gave me Darvocet N in pill form! LOL

My surgeon has specific guidelines for Vitamins and Protein shakes...make sure yours doesn't before you invest a bunch in something that he won't want you to use!

AND I am still excited for you. I love my band and I've only had it 6 days!

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

        Very helpful, I was just wondering about our stomach wounds..September 8 2021 Sleeve

    • Living4cc

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
