    Default Getting Nervous

    Hi, all. I'm new here & honestly, I'm so confused on where to get in to read some of the stories. I'm scheduled to have the Sleeve done next month, July 22nd. I would like to find someone that has already had the surgery done, so I can ask some questions.

    Welcome, you're at the right place to ask some questions. There are a lot of wonderful posters who've had the sleeve and are at different stages so I'm sure someone can answer.

    I'm 2 months post op and it is one of the best decisions I've ever made. Being nervous is normal, I was nervous as well, but more excited than nervous really. It's a lifetime commitment but the Sleeve works if you work it.

    Welcome TylerRo. I just joined a few days ago and was sleeved this morning. Am currently in the hospital and doing well. Only pain med I’m taking is liquid Tylenol. Ditto to what KiwiGal said. I was getting pretty nervous, but by educating myself over the six months and reading posts and blogs I got calmed down quite a bit. Good luck.
