I'm have duodenal switch surgery this Thursday
Im so happy you're getting your operation finally !!!
Youve GOT this !!!
Bring plenty of reading material with you, a phone charger, maybe some water flavoring if you prefer flavored water ... clean underwear toothbrush hairbrush and a sweater ( hospitals can be cold !)
And get ready to walk walk walk every half hour and blow blow blow ( it really helps heal and recover faster ) ... your fellow patients probably wont be walking the halls but it helps SO much if you do what your doc recommends - no risk of painful blood clots for instance .
And don't worry if you feel woozy headed for a few weeks afterwards - its a side effect of the general anesthesia!
Were all rooting for you to be safe and heal quickly and comfortably !

If you have a specific question for me, PM me or I will not see it, as I don't check responses on the forums and don't have anything forwarded to my email.
