    Good luck for today Paula - you've gotten off to a cracking start pre-op and I'm sure your post-op loss will be awesome as well.

    Morning to all, especially those booked for the 18th like me! I can't believe that it's less than a week away! It seems quite surreal that real life is carrying on at the moment. I'm pretty much a secret sleever as only my husband and a couple of friends know, so I've hardly spoken to anyone about what is going on.

    LJ - how are you doing today? Hope you're feeling a bit brighter. I was warned by the nurse in my pre-op that the general anaesthetic can make you feel very emotional - maybe this is contributing to you feeling really tearful? I take anti-depressants and she warned that I must keep taking them because of this.

    I'm in the afternoon too, although I don't know the exact time. I don't have to book in until 12.30, so hopefully not too much waiting around I haven't told my family because I don't think they'll approve - they think it's too risky. I think that staying at my current weight is even more risky!

    Hey Paula, hope it went well! Looking forward to hearing from you!

    I am scheduled to have the MGB at the end of the month. I am having some doubts all of a sudden and wondering whether I should have the sleeve instead as there isn't as much information available about the MGB. My first choice would have been the RNY but my bmi is too low for that option.

    I don't know whether I should opt for the sleeve instead to give me the reassurance (especially since I'm travelling abroad for surgery) or whether to stick with my original plan and have the MGB. Really stressing over it!

    Hope everyone who has had their surgery is doing well! Let us know how you are doing when you are up to it :)

    Also good luck tomorrow Nickynooo! It'll be all done before you know it! :hugs:

    I have just transferred 7450Euros via transferwise to Belgium Surgery Services! So nervous now, waiting for them to tell me they have received the money! Eek! It also feels so real now that I have paid, it's definitely happening :D Pre op is going okay, pretty hungry and craving pizza but nevermind, 11 days left for me :)

    Hi,
    I haven't told my mum either. I have 8 days to go til surgery. She's getting on and is rather forgetful so I thought I would tell her afterwards then she doesn't have to worry! Did your family take it ok when you told them?
