    Wow that sucks! How long have you been on your liquid diet? I would only have to be on it 2 weeks before surgery.

    LOL Yah, I've heard some complaints about my snoring..lol but hopefully that will be gone soon! Thanks! I'm excited about my medical clearance appt. tomorrow! It was supposed to be last week but the dr had to cancel and reschedule. They called me a little bit ago to confirm..I asked them what happens tomorrow and she said that they'll go over my ekg and lap test results and then after that they send the results to someone who will go over the results and call me to schedule a surgery date..so hopefully all will go well. I'll let you know exactly how is goes tomorrow!

    I have my medical clearance appt tomorrow... what happens at that appointment? Is it at that point that I'll be able to schedule my Sx?

    That does sound kinda weird..lol but that should help you! That was one of the things they said that would help if your BMI wasn't above 40. I was supposed to get a sleep study done more than a year ago and stupid me never went..but I'm sure I have it from what other people say who have slept in the same room with me...lol I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    Did you have to have a sleep study done to see if you have sleep apnea?

    I'm in Chicago, looking for band friends.

    I was actually going to send you a message and then I found this! I saw that Dr. Rosett did your surgery. He's my doc too! I haven't been banded yet but I'm sure my surgery will be sometime before the middle of Feb. I would love to have someone else to talk to, email, get together, etc who is going through the same thing!! I live in Wicker Park... what area do you live in?

    Wow....you had to wait 6 months for insurance approval...I bet you're glad that wait is over! Do you know the reasoning the insurance company makes the approval a 6 month wait? I'm happy for you that you are getting the surgery soon!

    That's awesome that your pre-op diet includes veggies! Mine will just be all liquid... I'm looking forward to being the size I should be...the size I was in college...and do a ton of things...especially with my kids!

    Hey there! I don't have a surgery date scheduled yet but I will be having surgery in Feb.. My BMI is 42.4.... according to what they were saying at the info session and what the PA said.. it shouldn't be a problem at all getting approved. I have my medical clearance appt. next week as well as a nutrition class, exercise class, and some other class. I already met with the nutritionsist and got my lab work and EKG done. I'm hoping that I can schedule surgery for the first week of February. The PA told me one of the patients wanted her surgery on Jan 25th.. and our appt was the same day.. she said if everything goes okay and you keep your appts and follow what you are supposed to follow.. you can get surgery very soon.. so I'm hoping for the 1st week of Feb.. I'll keep you updated.. where do you live?
