I'm Going to Have It Done - Houston, TX

I have sleep apnea, very high cholesterol, back and knee problems. I also struggle with weight problems that I have been dealing with since the birth of my son almost 10 years ago. I have been thinking long and hard about this and decided to go for it.

I am schedule to have the gastric sleeve done in July sometime. I have not set a date because I am still going to my nutrition classes. Once again I am excited..... Any advice?

How are you. I amso glad you are excited becuase i am also schedule for the sleeve in april. I am so scared of surgury. I have 4 kids . High blood pressure, ahernia and sleep abneia as well,. i am terrified. Can you share with me some of your techniques on how you got over your fear of being scared of surgury if you had any fears?

Hey Foxyy22,
I have had a couple of major surgeries before. And yes I have had some fears. A lot of them was placed in my head by listening to others. I had to stop that. Instead of seeking the advice of people that have not been in my shoes or negative, I do research, talk with my physician, people that are in my situation, such as Realself, and most of all I pray about it. I know that I am doing it to better my health and my self esteem. So having fears is something that is natural. Just educate yourself and pray and you will be fine.

The classes are usually quite good. They're there to teach you that you're going to be making a lifestyle change and not a diet. You'll do great as long as you follow their advice!
