I have a surgery date booked for 27th April with Dr Baker in Townsville. It's all still a bit surreal at the moment but I'm sure it will all sink in closer to the time.
I'm not working currently although hope to after I've recovered from the surgery. I am a stay at home Mum to 3 boys (9yo, 6yo & 2yo) which keeps me fairly busy. Like most here I have tried a whole array of things to lose weight over the years but nothing sustainable. I'm not looking for a quick fix because I realise this will still be hard work but I am definitely looking forward to the massive helping hand the sleeve will provide. I have all my pre surgery investigations booked for next week (dietitian, psychologist, bloods,endoscopy & sleep study) and also start on the optifast phase later in the week.
This forum has already been quite helpful so I am sure it will be a valuable tool going forward and I am looking forward to reading more about everyone else's experience.
