I received the call from my surgeon's office yesterday, my surgery date is January 23, 2019!!!

I can tell you I am 99% excited and 1% scared to begin this next phase of my life.

Any other January 2019 sleevers out there yet???

Congratulations! It's natural to be a little nervous, but I'm glad that your overwhelming emotion is excitement. This thread might help reduce that 1%: https://www.obesityhelp.com/forums/vsg/6034619/What-turned-o ut-better-than-you-expected/

I have an appointment on Wednesday, I will know more then. Started researching some protein powders, got one today that's not too bad. Thinking maybe late January early February, if no hiccups from insurance company.

Good luck!

I'm approved for January too, but I don't have a surgery date yet. I won't get to meet with the surgeon until January (after his office re-confirms my insurance benefits); then we'll schedule the date. I had hoped I could have the surgery in time to recover before I go back to work on January 14, but it looks like I won't be that lucky.
