My sleeve journey~Dr Almanza was my surgeon.

by Bethwowo on 03-28-2014 at 10:52 PM
After a 1 year of researching and reschedule twice I finally had my gastric sleeve. I was very excited for this next step in my life. I had friends that did not think I would come back alive and told me daily that I should not go because I would die, needless to say these comments hurt. My children were behind me 100% and they were the ones that I missed them most along with my four grandchildren. I flew out of Detroit Michigan on Thursday March 20th for a 4.5 hour flight to San Diego on Delta Airlines,

Just started my liquid diet!!!!

no more food for me...Fly out on Thursday and sleeve on Friday!!! Excited but I am going to miss my kids and grandbabies. I know I will be healthier after this and can do more with them. Can't wait to meet all the wonderful people that are having surgery the same day I am.

Liquid Diet suggestions please!!!!

by Bethwowo on 02-16-2014 at 05:16 PM
My surgery is on March 21st and I was informed I need to be on a 3 day "liquid diet" before and I need some suggestions beside water that I am allowed to drink/eat. I want to be safe and not eat /drink something that I am not allowed to. I was told this will help decrease the size of my liver for surgery, I have an "enlarged" liver anyway and was considering doing a 5 day just to be sure. Thanks for any help!!! Excited for my journey.
