Getting ready...surgery next week Thursday....
Hi. It's been a long while since I've been here. My journey started a number of years ago leaning towards the DS and RNY. Back then I didn't have the coverage, but now I finally do. My surgeon recommended the VSG and I think it's the right choice for me. I can't believe I'm typing these words, but my surgery is coming up on 3/5. I check in at 9am. I'm currently struggling with the pre-op liquid diet (I miss chewing!). I can't believe I'm almost there. I'm so grateful for OH. It helps reading the posts -- ups as well as the downs. I hope to be on the loser's bench one day. Hope you're all settling into a great week.
Congratulations Kami on your up coming surgery...I just had a revision from sleeve to bypass on 2/12 so I know that excitement feeling . I also get the struggle with the miss chew factor, So I did alot of ice and sugar free popsicles. I dont know if your plans allow it but it's truly a help.

Revision from sleeve to bypass :2/12/20
We're surgery buddies! Except I'm getting RNY :) I check in at 9am for an 11am surgery. I feel you on the pre-op diet. Sugar free gum has helped with that need to chew. I've had horrible headaches and fatigue, but I'm just trying to chug along. We can do it!
