  1. 2 more days until surgery and Im nervous. I have to be on a liquid diet for the next 2 days so Im just trying to keep myself busy around the house to distract myself. Who else is getting surgery on 2/20?
  2. One of the main reasons im getting VSG is because I have Idiopathic Instracranial Hypertension (IIH), AKA- Pseudotumor Cerebri (PTC) Anybody else on here have it and find that VSG has helped with symptoms?

    Im so sorry, hugs to you during this difficult time.
  4. Im having VSG on 2/20. What was it like for you when you first woke up after you got the sleeve? I just want to know what to expect. Im getting nervous! Also is anybody else having VSG on 2/20?
  5. Hello

    Hi, my name is Lydia. I live in northern CA. My surgery in in 1 week on 2/20. I was supposed to have RNY but the dr changed it to VSG for health reasons. My highest weight was 535lbs back in 2015. Ive since lost quite a bit on my own and currently weigh 418lbs. Anybody else get sleeved at that high of a weight? Im getting excited for surgery but a little nervous.
