    Hi Magnifica,
    Thank you for the understanding words of encouragement. Once I start losing, not sure what I will tell folks, I just know that I don't need the judgement right now. Thanks again!

    Hi, I'm doing pretty well. Tomorrow is 3 weeks post op, and I feel great. I did hit a stall already, that's no fun. My weight has not changed since Friday, I do hope the stall ends soon. I'm still hoping this is all worth it. I'm not tempted to cheat, I know if I cheat, I may end up in the hospital or with a leak. I do miss food though. I hope you're doing well. Are you going to Tiajuana for your surgery?

    You should call them and ask them.

    The laxative is only one time. You should watch videos on youtube for Dr. Matthew Weiner. This will clear up a lot of your questions.

    Hi who are you scheduled through? I'm with weightloss agents. I'm to do a clear 3 day clear liquid diet, which consisits of broth, gatorade, clear protein drinks and a laxative the day I start the pre-op dirt.

    Congrats on your progress. How are you coming along. At 2.5 years out, I'm finding the hardest part is maintaining but I continue to work hard. I can now eat more at least a small saucer of food. I have to strive to make good choices. I've worked too hard to get to this point. Just sending you words of encouragement. I tell myself that eating the junk food does not make me nearly as happy as being healthy feels.

    Good luck on your journey im sure you have worked real hard too. Best of luck on your success

    Dr. Roslin in NYC but sometimes and I think around White Plains other days. He did my husbands lap band 10 years ago. No complications at all, hope that helps and good luck to you. BTW his spelling may be off it might be Roslyn either way i'm sure you could find him on the internet.
  9. Hi Everyone,
    I have been on a mission to get sleeved. I can't travel far and need to know of any great surgeons in N.J, PA, New York and Delaware maybe! I need to know of any programs that may help me financially. Medicaid is all I have and I am not able to get financial approval here. I am on a begging spree right now. Hopefully I might be able to get a private loan. I need input from anyone in states mentioned that had an excellent experience with a fine surgeon.

    Welcome aboard this site...I wish you the best for surgery.
  13. Hi magnifica,Im Barbara you mention care credit do they take care credit there
  14. Well, I am so depressed. I had no idea how paralyzing it is for me. I want to forge ahead now and complete all the necessary steps in preparation for the surgery.
    Goal one is very difficult for me. Getting clearance from my doctor!
    I have not had good experiences with my doctors over the years.
    I remember asking my Dr. a year ago about the possibility of me getting bypass or the lap band.
    He told me I was a borderline diabetic and that those procedures are risky!
    How am I going to go in there and ask him for permission to get the gastric Sleeve?

    Now my pressure is really high!!!
