hello everyone! Sleeved aug 23 and so far things are going good. My sister had surgery 3 days before me, and I sort of followed her time line for food. I was planning on waiting until saturday as that is my timeline, but I tried what she had and tolera
Hello everyone! I'm so jittery and excited today. Tomorrow I have to be at the hospital for 7:15 and surgery is set for 9:30am for VSG. Just asking for some prayers that the surgery is smooth and to guide the surgeons hands.

So darn nervous, anxious... scared.. excited! Surgery is Thursday. Time is creeping by so slowly, but at the same time speeding by so quick! Also excited that I will have 6 weeks off of work for recovery. Is it odd that I'm so excited for the time off?

When I started this
Has anyone ever had their files mixed up?? On Friday I went for my last appointment with the internist in Thunder Bay and they accidentally grabbed someone elses file. They did call me into the office by my full name so I didn't notice anything off. Du
Ugh, I am just struggling with this process emotionally.
Before entering the WLS process, I honestly had no idea how much I used my addictions to cope with stressful/emotional situations! But since being in this process, I was so much more awa
I'm still pre op but must admit, reading about hypo hypoglycemia post op sure scares me. I'm not diabetic so it worries me that sugars will be something to really worry about following surgery. Is it common for people who have RNY and are not diabetic
