Met with Surgeon

I met with my surgeon yesterday arvo for the first time. He said I only have to do 1 week of opt-fast. It was nice to be able to have some meat last night for dinner. I have decided though that I am going to stay on it from now till the 29th as I was feeling some benefits of it. I think it would be great to be able to drop a couple of pounds before hand also, which is a big plus.
My Surgeon is just the most loveliest man. He seems very confident that the lap-band will do wonders for me, which was encouraging to hear.
I am booked into the hospital at 7am on Thursday 29th July. It just can't seem to come around fast enough. I am loving reading everyone's blogs. It really helps ease any of the nerves and anxiety I might have. Thanks to everyone. x


  1. That's great your surgeon is so encouraging. Sets you up for a good start.

    I had to do the optifast for 4 weeks prior to surgery, but I lost 16 lbs, so I really didn't mind!

  2. You are so close! I know your surgeon is right--you will do great with the band!
