    Hi, I'm 49, an RN in a ICU unit. Keeping this surgery quiet-my husband, and NP are the only ones that know. I go to mexico Nov 7th for surgery on the 8th. Clear liquids and Laxatives sounds like I'm staying home today. Oh well more time for lurking on the boards.

    Hello!! My name is Gloria, but everyone calls me Glo. I am almost one year post-op and have lost 106 pounds to date. I am very proud of my success, but know I could have lost more if I would have exercised or eaten better! While my stomach cannot hold the same amount of food, my mind still craves junk food! Be strong ladies!!

    Hi all, Good for you Glo! I hope I can do that good. I too am a junk food junky and I am very nervous about the eating thing after surgery. I am most concerned about being able to drink all the water. Did anyone add anything to it , like crystal light, to make it taste better? Also, will I be able to drink my coffee? Thanx

    Hola chicas! I am in my mid 40s and hopefully getting sleeved in Feb, to be followed w/ reconstructive surgery as appropriate and affordable. I'm excited but also scared, like a lot of us, it sounds like.

    Hello All! I'm Sonia, 40 year old mother of two. Had a failed lap band 2 1/2 years ago and now waiting for insurance approval for VGS revision. It's been difficult to lose weight but I did finally quit smoking cigarettes(cold turkey). Whew!! Thank God I'm still very healthy considering the abuses I've sent my body through. I'm sooo ready. Unfortunatly I have no support. I haven't told any family members, they don't believe in this kind of stuff. They only know I'm removing my lap band. Had a breast reduction due to back issues and I'm VERY happy with it. It's about ME for a little while...

    I found some at Costco with 30gs of protien, I forgot the name but they are 11 ozs, come in a 18 or 24 pk box and are about $25. I've tried a couple of different brands (chocolate) and all taste about the same to me. They're all pretty good.

    Hi everyone,
    I am 45. Wondering if it is too late for surgery. Scared of surgery and feeling old. My body feels old. I hope this surgery helps. Just in a blue mood today. There are so many things that I wanted to do in life, like be a dancer and I was always too big. I might take some adult ballet classes when I am smaller. I fear it will never happen though. I do have a surgery date of June 10th but we haven't verified my insurance. I had to quit smoking and I quit sodas. Oh and I also wanted to ask if anyone knows what I should avoid to reduce stretching out my stomach after surgery. Thanks. - Lili
