I'm so excited!! Its getting real to me now. 1st step in getting my life back on track. I should know my surgery date next week..yayyyyy.

My Surgery date is here- 8/18/2016

Well surgery date is finally here Thursday!! Just like everyone that had VGS, I’m excited and a little afraid. I’m having it here in the states, but either way I’m still afraid. Please pray warriors put me on your pray list. I am so grateful I found this site. It has really prepared me. I’m asking all the right questions thanks to you all that have gone thru it. I got all my meds, even the gas-x. I will be on top of things this time. When I had my lap band 2 years ago, I was not prepared. I’m hoping all I experience is the gas pain, which I’m prepared for that…I will post picture soon..I get really excited and then anxiety sets in. I guess that can be expected. Thank you in advance.
