How did you like Dr. Davey? I find him nice but kind of intimidating, always forget my questions...
I just want this sleeve done and my healthier life to begin, I'm very active but it's hard when your so big, I know this is only a tool and I know my physical activity wil increase once i get more energy and less pain... I have 3 boys how can it now get more active....lol.
Keep up that journaling. It is really the key to be successful at weight loss both before and especially after surgery. I hope you get your date soon.

Yes, I had him but my surgery did not go so well. I had my surgery on April 22, 2013. Gastric Sleeve. Apparently he knicked into the intestines and didn't notice and closed me up. Five days later, fecal matter started spewing from one of my 5 little incisions. As a result, I was rushed back into surgery, with an incision over 12 inches long for the other surgeons to clean out the bacteria from my abdomen. They left the incision open apparently and me in ICU with my hands tied down so that I wouldn't touch the open incision or pull the intubated tube from my throat. I was in and out of consciousness the whole time. Two days later, I was back in the OR for another round of cleaning my abdomen out. I don't even recall going back to the OR the third time. Then returned to ICU. Then transferred to the surgical ward but I don't even know how many days I spent in ICU. Spent a total of 23 days in hospital on 4 or 5 heavy duty strong antibiotics. It is now June 4th and my incision is still not healed. It's been a long road. Not saying that he's a terrible surgeon. Just relaying my experience. What I didn't like is the couple of times that he did come to see me after my third surgery, he would just wiggle my toes and say - you're going to be alright. Easy for him to say. It's been a lonnnnnnnng road.
