    you have all been so very kind and I want to thank you for your wise words and support. This means so much to me and has helped me enormously in my final decision to go ahead with such a life/body altering experience. This is a huge deal for me and my decision to go ahead after many thoughtful years has not been taken lightly. That I have chosen to keep this all to myself (apart from 2 people) has put me in a particularly lonely position, together with all the other madness that surrounds my life, which I wont go into here. Being able to share with you all and receive the most wonderful support and read the intelligent, informed, personally experienced words of wisdom has made the world of difference to me. Bless you all so very much. Have fun, stay safe and continue to enjoy the freedom your wls has afforded you. Much love, Cath x

    Ive actually just sent an email to my surgeons secretary to explain my anxiety about walking to OR and being strapped to the apparatus without sedation - fingers crossed for a positive response. Its a reality for me, and though I can be rational about it, Im still anxious

    yes, indeed!!!!!!! Finished my work schedule today, now a little time to relax before the big day - starting to feel apprehensive - here in the UK surgeons prefer not to give pre-meds so I will have to walk into the OR completely 'sober' and full of nerves - not looking forward to that bit. Advice needed please lovely people!!!!

    Tomorrow I go for surgery at 9:45am

    so it sounds like things are improving? What sort of stuff are you eating/drinking Jennyfer? Iam hoping that when I go for my pre-op appointment on monday that they will give me a list of what Ill need to get in stock for this time and that they will have recommendations for vitamins etc. Being in UK we have different stuff to you in the States, so eagerly await this info. How are you doing today Jennyfer? Are you managing much physical movement, housework etc. I guess chores such as vacuuming will be restricted a bit at first?

    Hey Jennyfer - hopefully by now, you will have tooted all that gas away . Just think, this is the beginning of a wonderful new phase of your life, a time when you are going to claim back all the good stuff!!! Keep up the great work and stay on track - this time in a few weeks (27th June) I will be 'tooting at county level' and will remember all the advise you guys have passed on. I think Im going to give the pre-biotics a go @BurgundyBoy - I have my eye on something called Inulin - has anyone tried this? Rooting for you Jennyfer!!! x

    Hi Aussie!!! thanks for your reply - good to know you are getting your water down!! Interesting to read that you had gastroplasty - does that work by making the stomach smaller? What was it about bypass that inspired you? I originally had a band fitted, and had very limited success with this as it allowed me to eat rubbish, whilst making eating of healthy stuff very tricky!! so, I'm hoping for better results with the bypass and will 'welcome' dumping if I dare to misbehave How are you feeling?!! Are you sleeping ok and did you have much in the way of pain relief immediately after?

    Looking for a buddy Uk or USA

    I imagine its quite a challenge to get enough water down - one step at a time sounds like a good plan. Do you mind if I ask if they gave you something before your surgery to relax you? I'm sure I'm going to feel terrified. Iam self funding, so I don't know whether this will make any difference. Did you get any stocks in for your recovery? Protein drinks, low cal drinks? what are we allowed I wonder. So pleased you are doing so well - I guess you feel very relieved the surgery is all over with do you know how long your op took? Iam having a lap band to bypass revision so I'm thinking that this will take some time. Sleep well tonight sweetheart and thanks for all your answers X

    looks like it contains some sugar, and stevia to sweeten - I wonder how much you can eat to avoid dumping?

    pre-op meds

    Iam expecting to feel anxious during the hour or two before my op. Will they give me something to calm my nerves prior to the op? What experiences have you all had?
