Worry more about:
Cellulitis and foot, leg, skin ulcers from diabetes,
blindness from retinal errosion
Stroke or heart attack
heart enlargement from long-term sleep apnea, arrhythmias
Being unable to play on the floor with a child, walk a dog, walk on a beach during a family vacation
Ride a bike, fit in an airplane,.....

You are doing this to save your life. Don't allow the negative's to outweigh the positives. Only allow yourself a few minutes a day to think about the risks, then use the rest of the time to think about all of the things you will do-- that you can't do now.
As for the future dieting.........you have never dieted yet with a "tool" like this one, so don't set yourself up for failure. Think of healthy happy--full of life---YOU.
PS. Don't chicken out on me, I'm pretty sure we have the same surgery date, Jan 11th.....
