My surgery date is march 2nd. I'm getting the Sleeve. Saying hi from India. Lived in Los Angeles till 5 years back.. I'm nervous, scared, worried, happy and excited all at the same time. I'd love to meet people similar to my date so we can follow each others progress and share our experiences.

Does anyone here know how to form a small group within thinner times? Or else, do you think we could all form a group on facebook? This way we can be constantly in touch! If yes, please inbox me your facebook id.. So that i can create a group and add you folks to it!

I just joined. My surgery is March 6, 2013. I've been waiting so long, but now it feels so quick. Scouring the internet for sample meal plans to use when I come home from the hospital so I can go shopping in advance. Feeling pretty nervous. Wen-

I am scheduled for gastric bypass on march 5th! I think I'll be in disbelief that it's happening until I'm waking up after surgery! Right now I'm focused on losing the 11lbs required by my doctor before the 28th (my pre-op appt/weigh in).

I do not have a set surgery date yet.  I need an Endoscopy first.  My surgeon said sometime in March.  So as of now, I will consider myself as being a candidate for a March surgery.  Hahahha!!  Good luck to everyone!

It looks like mine will be March 20th.  I can't wait and I'm glad there are so many of you with March dates, also.  I will look forward to watching your progress.  Good luck!

Wow, it's exciting there are so many of us! Next week I have my pre-op appt at the hospital and my pre-op at my doctor. My surgery is the week after that (March 6-GB). I'm excited but now it seems like I have too much left to do before then (work and home), the time is flyin bye.

I am trying to get all the products and things I will need on hand for post surgery and I have about 4 more books to read! Time used to stand still, now it's racing by. Hope that continues after surgery. Any tips on suplements or protien shakes. I am going with ones that my support group recomended.

 

Looks like madsmits84 is the first of this group!!! :)

Oh yes wendy..Looks like i'm the first in our little group.. I am very nervous. Doctor advised 5 days pre op liquid diet but i decided to do it for 10 days. So it has been really tough. I love food.. in case u havent noticed.. :unsure: .. and today is my 5th day. I have slipped once.. Ate some cottage cheese coz i had such wild cravings. And i got so desperate to eat something.. Well and since my liquid diet.. I have lost 3 kilos (6.6 lbs). Guess it is a good start eh! Cant wait for March 2nd and yet, i also dont want it to come any sooner than it has to! Hahaha! Hows everyone else doing? How many days pre op liquid diet has your doc suggested?

Cheers

Have a great day ya all

My doc doesn't require everyone to do the liquid diet but because my BMI is so high I get to be one of the lucky few. I have a 10 day diet that starts right after I get my preop bloodwork and EKG done. But I am allowed 1 meal of 2-3 oz lean protein & 1 cup of certain veggies so it's not totally liquid

Oh thats good ziggy. My doc said liquid diet. But quite flexible on the type of liquids.. I can have fruit juices minus the sugar, clear soups, low fat milk, yoghurt, buttermilk, Liquidy porridge.. and stuff like that.. So there is quite a variety of options.. unfortunately sometimes ur teeth just miss the chewing and the swallowing.. :(.. But hey, its all for a good cause right!
