    Scheduling surgery while in school

    Thanks guys!! Mainly I have one class that concerns me and it is a science class...Anatomy and Physiology. Luckily though all my classes are in one building and the most I have in one day is 2 classes. One those days I'm done at 1pm so there will be time for naps lol. But I also know that the earlier I do the surgery and not push it back to Christmas break then the further through recovery I'll be before spring semester starts. That semester will be a big one.
  3. Hello all! Ok so I’m getting so close to finishing up my 6 month physician supervised weight loss and all of my other pre-op requirements. I tentatively think I should be looking at the first/first part of November for surgery. My question to all of you is (and I know it’s different for everyone but still want opinions) how soon after surgery do you think I’ll be able to handle going back to class? Would a week off of school for surgery and recoop time be enough? I’m getting so impatient and want to hurry and get the surgery but I also don’t want to screw up my entire semester. If I don’t schedule for the beginning of November then it would more than likely have to wait till Christmas break. And I’ll also be making a trip to Texas then too for my sisters graduation. Oh decisions decisions. Anyway, any and all advice would be appreciated.

    RNY vs. Sleeve...can't decide!

    I wanted to say thank you to all of you for your input. Lol I’m still undecided though. Luckily I still have time to decide. I haven’t had my appointment with my surgeon yet so I’m sure he’ll be able to guide me too. Not that y’all don’t know what you’re talking bout....I just like all the knowledge I can get! Thanks so much and keep those opinions coming!!!
  5. Hello All, My name is Angie and this is my first post here. I just went to my orientation seminar last night but on July 3rd I will have 3 of my 6 month PCP supervised visits done. So I like to think I'm halfway there! Anyhow, I had originally had my mind made up that I wanted the RNY but the more research I do and the more reading of forums here I'm starting to lean more towards the sleeve. Actually, I keep going back and forth. As bad as it might sound the malabsorption aspect of the RNY and food restrictions is one of the reasons I was leaning that way. I feel that this would help me more in the long run. A way to keep me on track that the sleeve wouldn't provide. Any input on why you chose the surgery you did would be appreciated. Thanks!!!!!
