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:

      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

        CongratulationsI’m six days post it hasn’t been the easiest but I think I’m definitely saving my life and I swear I cry at least once every two hours but sweetheart you will be fine there’s also a couple things that I would like to make sure that you have before your surgery if that’s OK

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
