Calendar for Upcoming Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgeries: Are You On It?

  • 1 year ago

One of the hardest things about going through a medi-beauty procedure is feeling alone. Sure, you might have a supportive friend, relative, or significant other, but that’s not the same as sharing the journey with someone experiencing a similar mixture of excitement and nervousness.

Whether you want to find a surgery buddy or would like to support others heading toward their big day, check out RealSelf’s calendar of upcoming surgeries.

To get on the calendar yourself, start your Sleeve Gastrectomy story here and make sure you choose “Haven’t Done It Yet” to open the calendar feature. Once your review has been submitted and approved, you’ll be added!

If your surgery date changes, just edit your review with the new date. The calendar will be updated to reflect your new date in 24-48 hours.

Thank you for being part of RealSelf and we hope you enjoy this feature!

Does everyone want the surgery then thinks will maybe not, just control your eating and change your bad habits? I have two knee surgeries coming up starting in June and my sleeve is for March 12th, I just cant get it together I guess, I really need your support and answers!!

I've finally completed my six month doctor supervised diet and have a surgery date of March 11th. I'm very excited and nervous at the same time.

Well I went to the class and it was very informative. I also found out I have to do a 6 month diet required by bcbs Alabama. I am a little disappointed but I have to do it so I guess by January 2014 I will be cleared for surgery

I also had to do a class and 6 months of a diet/exercise regime. It's a long process, which isn't easy, but hopefully will be worth it!
