A perfect "Home away from home". Dec. 23 too. Louisville KY.

More nervous about pre-op testing and the thought of having a catheter than anything else!!!

Anxiously awaiting my pre-op testing on Dec. 12. I will get my "lovely" pre-surgery liquid diet plan then. :lol:

My friend's have talked my into getting a bikini wax so I can "prepare" for my catheter. Does the torture ever end??:sad_smile:

Noticing some "friction" and "bad vibes" from a co-worker who was denied for the surgery. She previously had jaws wired shut, joined Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, and had her stomach stapled and is STILL non-compliant. I've just learned to "shake my haters off" and go on with my life.:tongue:

Hey guys,

I'm also being banded on 23rd December. I'm from the UK, but flying to Brussels to have my surgery. I'm nervous about flying home by myself the following day, but I'm certain it'll be worth it.

Good luck to you all.

I didn't have a catherter. It is such a short surgery, you probably won't have one. But then again every surgeon is different. Good luck to you all. Maggies:shades_smile:

Had my pre-op testing on Friday, Dec. 12. Did okay...except the barium from the barium swallow...it didn't like me too well and I ended up having stomach cramps and the runs for 3 hours. UGH!:thumbup:

Got the pre-surgery and post surgery diets. It doesn't look that bad. Did all of my grocery shopping for my "goodies"...Positive thinking.:confused_smile:

Already scheduled my beginning sessions with my exercise therapist. I start on Dec. 29, unless my surgeon states otherwise.

Had my pre-op assessment done today at the Med Center, and also met with my surgeon. Asked him tons more questions. Like, did i have a say in where the port went....yes i did! Also found out that he uses the On-Q painbuster for pain control post-op and i am excited about that, i have heard great things about it. Maybe your surgeon does the same thing? Only tests i had to do were EKG and bloodwork, everything else is in place. Getting very excited to move ahead with my new life. Keep in touch with your post-op experiences. Nicci:thumbup:

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
