    So glad you made this thread. Congrats to you both on the "coming up very soon" dated!! I am scheduled for July 27, 2018. How are you guys doing on the pre-op diet? Are you excited? I am so freaking excited and ready to take back control of my life and stop hiding from the world as i have over the past few years.

    Me too!
  6. Current BMI 35 Canadian dr says I am not fat enough. I sure feel fat enough! Any Canadians (Albertans) have difficulty getting follow up care if required locally? What is the pre-op diet like? is there any regrets?? Having witnessed some people have surgery in 80 and 90’s with some major negative side effects, how is it done differently today? Any psycho therapists having experienced Sleeve and what is the outcome for you? How long until back to work comfortably? I would love to hear more stories of recovery long post surgery. Thank you!

  12. Hey all! I thought I’d make a threade for those of us who are having surgery in July of 2018! I personally am scheduled for July 10th. Anyone else?
  13. Scheduled my surgery for July 6th! Nervous and excited at the same time. Worried about the pre-op diet since I’m whey protein intolerant. Do t know how this will interfere with the success of my pre and post op results. Any input is greatly appreciated!

    The TSA only goes after stuff that will bring a plane down and prohibited items, example, guns, knives, bombs, liquids over 3.4oz, gels and aerosols in your carry on. Protein powder isn't one of those and it isn't a prohibited item. They might check it, but it will end up ok to go. If you are checking a bag, pretty much anything can go in checked. The TSA has examples on their website if you need to be assured.

    So I put my protein powder in a gallon zip bag, then double bagged into another gallon zip bag and labeled it "Protein Powder." No issues with TSA.

    How easy was the process from ti.e of consult to making surgery dates?
  24. Hello. I am new to the group and have done research on the Gastric Sleeve. How easy was it to get to speak with Dr. Ortiz? I am so excited for all of you!! Please share your stories and experiences with me so I can get more Information in my decision making. I have been overweight since a young child at the age of 5. Mom even had .e on a diet to fit into my Communion dress. My years and battles of being over weight and now obese have been more than just a "struggle". What a roller coaster!! Any info and stories shared would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all ☺
