  1. Thank you, Cheesehead, for the comforting words. I know that in no time I'll be looking back and thinking like you! I think I've moved beyond nervous and I'm just ready for it to get here already.
  2. Nine days out! How are you feeling? I believe I'm scheduled to stay for one night and then go home. As long as everything goes as planned, I think that will be fine. Five days away and I just can't wait for it to get here already! Funny how the months went by pretty quickly but these last couple of weeks are dragging!
  3. Hi Kisha! Sorry to hear that your ankle is injured. We have the same surgery date so I wanted to say hello. Eight days out and can't wait! From what I have learned from others who have been through the surgery, the laproscopic surgery makes walking easier. I hear we will be sore (obviously ) but once we get up and moving should actually start to feel better. Just take it slow and use support for your ankle. I imagine that will make it much easier. When you are post op, check back in. We can trade stories! Best of luck with your surgery and both your post op and ankle recovery!
  4. Hi! Three days out- how are you feeling? I hope everything went well and you are feeling okay! I’m booked for August 19th and could not be more excited for it to get here. After all of these months of prep and appointments, I can’t believe it’s ten days away.
  5. Thank you! The appointment was easy peasy and I'm more excited than ever. I appreciate it!
  6. Hi Everyone! This is my first post on this site and I have to say, it has been so great reading everyone's discussions. My pre-op appointment is scheduled for tomorrow. This is suddenly very, very real. I know that this is the best choice for me; I need to get healthy and take my life back. I also know that I can do it. Somehow, that is not stopping the nerves.
  7. Hi there! I'm scheduled for VSG in two weeks and I'm starting to get the usual jitters. Even with that, I'm so excited to start this new chapter in my life. How are things going for you at this point and what do you wish you knew when surgery was two weeks away? Just trying to prepare myself for anything I haven't thought of yet, though I've been scouring the internet for info. Thanks!
