    Oh gosh as a fellow fence sitter this has completely thrown me off !Due to have surgery 20/2/18 fully paid and a week into my 2wk pre op diet (of which I’m not doing terribly well at) 
    So many reservations ugh

    Did anyone ever cheat on the preop diet? I have fallen off the wagon a little bit here and there and am feeling extremely disappointed in myself! Just wanting to hear from anyone else who struggled or is struggling, if it effected your surgery or not etc.
    TIA

    Irene B You sound like you are doing so well!! That’s amazing! I on the other hand am struggling.I have fallen off the wagon a couple of times - just a little here and there but enough to make me disappointed in myself. I’d like to think this next week I will be more headstrong but can’t help but feel I will fail again.

    Thankyou so much for your replies, they have really put me at ease. Irene B please let me know if seeing the physiologist helps - might have to look into it myself. 
    Anybody in Perth by any chance ?

    Thankyou for your reply BusyLizzie it’s definately anxiety/fear of the surgery going wrong  as I have two precious babies to care for.

    Hi Everyone,
    Hoping I can find some comfort in reading all these threads and comments. 
    I have a date set for my sleeve with Dr Dolan. 20/2/17 and it’s coming up fast. I am beside myself with fear. I think because this is an elective surgery I am scared .... if that makes sense. 
    The whole 1 in 3000 people die from this surgery spooked me a little. When asking if any of them were Dr Dolans patients he joked “no but I have done 4800 surgeries so I’m due 2” joking ofcourse I’m sure but part of me freaked out a little haha. 
    Im not really sure what I’m hoping people to reply —I’m just freaking out. I have been putting off filling out my paperwork because of this. 
    Would love to hear people who shared the same anxiety and got thru it etc or anyone really.
    Thankyou
