    Happy Birthday!!!!!!
  8. I am so happy for you. It's almost here! you will do fine. Keep in touch. We will pray for you and a speedy recovery. I did great. I was uncomfortable the first day. Probably from the gas they pump in to do the surgery. But really no pain to speak about.
    I felt amazing very quickly.. Just remember to sip, sip sip. lots of fluids.
    God bless you on your weight loss journey. Keep in touch. Barb

    I don't know if this will help you but it can't hurt; I struggled w/ the weight loss/weight gain cycle and was eventually able to get out of it, lose the proper amount of pre op weight and get sleeved. Good luck. If I were you I'd try liquid diets just for one week and see how you feel.

    Hey great. I hope it gets approved I have my pre-op class on 4/11 and in all it has been a long ride but I'm hoping it is worth it. And lets see how we do after 6 months after our surgeries.

    Hey good luck. I am planning on getting my done with Dr Robin Blackstone on May 29th. I am so wishy washy about it but I am going thru with it. I know it is for my health and a tool to help me keep my health. I am now less then 10 weeks in waiting and I am just wanting it to start. Hope you get over your jitters and make it happen.
