95% Ready and 5% Scared... - Everett, WA

I've decided to have the sleeve and am scheduled...

I've decided to have the sleeve and am scheduled on Wednesday, October 16, 2013. I made this decision on August 22, 2013. I had to wait to have my surgery, as I needed to be nicotine free for at least 6 weeks. So I've stopped smoking, which is great, however, I've gained weight in the process, UGH! So now I feel so uncomfortable, which is why I'm ready to begin my next journey. Monday is pre-op, I paid for my surgery last week and I start my pre-surgery diet on Wednesday. Hoping I'm making the right decision and that all goes well. Time will tell I suppose.

First day of pre-op diet...

So today is the first day of my pre-op diet. I was doing okay until mid-afternoon and then a major headache. Yesterday at pre-op they said I should lose 8 lbs prior to surgery. I'm freaking out that I may not lose those 8lbs. My Dr. Told me last week not to worry so much about pounds lost but he's more concerned with the shrinkage of the liver. Tomorrow marks one week until my surgery and I feel like this is taking forever to get here.

Finally post-op

Had my sleeve done October 16. Had a rough night in the surgical center, but nothing too major. I'm so bloated it's crazy. My stomach has never been this big. Ugh
