    Red face I'm Leaving Today!! Surgery Wednesday!

    Hello Everyone!! Well, I leave today, flying to San Diego! My surgery is Wednesday! I'm excited and nervous all at the same time!! So far, I've lost 10 pounds on the pre op diet...no bread, no sugar, no soda, no alcohol, no starchy vegetables or processed foods! It's great though because I don't even crave anything sweet or bread! This will definitely set a good precedent for my post op!
    I must say I am getting nervous though!! Wish me luck!!

    So exciting! You seem very well prepared and you did well on the preop diet. You may feel pretty crappy in the beginning but hang in there. Each day gets better. Good luck to you and keep us posted!

    And don't forget to ask the surgeon to push the gas out after she is done!

    Yay! I'd be more nervous about the plane ride. I have to take anxiety meds to get on a plane. If you can fly, you will do just fine with surgery. No, I'm not afraid to fly. What would give you that idea? Lol. Good luck! Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!

    How very exciting.

    This is the beginning of a great journey for you. You just won't believe how much fun you are going to have.

    Follow your surgeons instructions, sip water "all the time", walk as often and as far as you feel you can, sleep when you need to and above all be kind to yourself.

    All the best and please let us know how you are getting on afterwards when you feel up to it.
