    wow, we need more peeps!! There has got to be more getting sleeved in Dec...come on people..lol I am 36 and have not always been heavy. I was thin my whole child hood through my mid 20's. I gained weight slowly thanks to depression and bad relationships. I slowly began to hate myself and the way I looked and felt helpless. I tried every diet imaginable and succeeded at some but always gained the weight back. I would gain more back at times too, becoming even heavier than I was before I dieted! Now that I am older it is harder to even lose 20lbs, and when I do lose I don't even drop a pant size which is upsetting and makes it hard to stick to a diet. I discovered weight loss surgery and prayed that I would qualify and after jumping through many hoops in the circus of doc appts and insurance I was finally approved and my surgery date is December 13!!! I simply can not wait! I am trying to stock up on things I will need before I go in so that when I get home life will be a little easier! Thanks and good luck to you all and I hope we get more Dec sleevers!! wowwowowiowo Wowowonnnslkwowo

    I understand, I am having mine done Dec 13th, I feel the same, at least I get Thanksgiving..lol But I feel I don't need food to make me or the Holidays better! I will be better and happier thin, and I can still help cook and make my family a great meal, I just wont be able to enjoy it with them, but that doesn't take away from the Holiday. Its about Family and love! Good luck and hope she doesn't stay mad too long!

    Oh, guess I should say, I'm 46, an CVICU nurse, BMI 40 5'6
    And although I should know better was one of those bad patients with no medical problems because I never saw the doctor. So now am new diabetic with high BP and high cholesterol. Getting that under control with meds and hopefully will legitimately have no medical problems as the weight comes off

    Hi, there! Good to meet you all! What an exciting journey we will be on together.
    Seems I'm on a surgery fast track thanks to company insurance that strongly supports wls. Wednesday was surgical consult and I have , NUT, psych and metabolic test 10/18, fitness 11/19 and if all goes as planned my surgeon expects to do surgery first week in dec.
    overwhelming but excited.

    I have final clearance. My surgeon submitted my paperwork to insurance on the 25th of last month and I found out the 3rdof this month. I kept calling and bugging my insurance every couple days. lol I found out before my surgeons office did..lol. I don't have any left to do, just see the nurse practitioner once more to discuss hospital things and then my last set of blood work for the anesthesiologist. Going for surgery on Dec 13...so happy! Starting a new year is gonna be wonderfull this time

    Hi all! I'm scheduled for December 16 in Tijuana, MX. My insurance has a specific exclusion for WLS so I am self pay. I'm not scheduled to start pre-op until December 1 but am considering Atkins during the last week in November. I have to say I'm a little nervous about the pre-op. I know I can do it. Good luck to everyone!

    Mommie4 got a reaction from Sleeve112013 in what should I get before surgery?   
    Hi all!! I was just approved for surgery and was wondering from all the pro's what I should get NOW. Should I be taking anything before? There are so many to chose from! I don't do good with too many choices..lol. Also, What should I start doing as far shopping for things I will need after surgery and packing for the hospital? If you could give me any advice what would it be??? I am so ready for this mentally but I have NOTHING as far as Vitamins and shakes yet and don't even know where to begin. Should get other things like sugar free pudding or anything else similar? ANY advice or things you learned along the way that might make my journey easier would be much appreciated! ANYTHING AT ALL!!!! Thanks in advance and congrats to everyone hope you are all doing great!!

    So my dr office called they are going to wait until November 1st to submit to my insurance for approval as my new insurance with BCBS starts and they are easier to get approval through. She said then all I have left is my educational class and then they will get me scheduled. So more waiting but I get it this time why I'm waiting.

    Be persistent, I was calling and bugging my surgeons office at least twice a week and when I called today they had one more date open for surgery before Jan and I got it!! I know they are busy but like you said, they rush us and then they take their sweet ass time setting us up with a date. Good luck..call tomorrow! lol

    GOT MY SURGERY DATE TODAY!!! Dec 13TH yay, I don't have to switch surgeons I can get in before my deductible sets in again! Thank you all for your advice on what I should get before surgery, if you think of anything else feel free to post! I have never had major surgery before, had my gallbladder removed but I was only down for less than a day, I recovered quickly. I know I will be seeing the NUT again and I will be able to ask them questions but hearing advice from people who actually went through it and who know the ups and downs on what they got or should have got is more comforting to me! So again, thanks a lot!!!

    Congratulations to all who have been approved and good luck to those still waiting. I had my 2nd consult with my surgeon on Thursday and I asked for a date in December, hopefully the second week. Now, I'm waiting for my pre-op orders from his office and the submittal to insurance.

    . I have been "scheduled" for 10/21 almost a month. At my pre-op appointment Friday my navigator says she'll call to check on approval. I was wondering what the wait was... Still haven't heard. Good luck - I hope you hear soon!

    Ooh! Got us, I apologize. I am pre-sleeved, so I don't know from experience but, I have read that most people stock up on broth, sugar free Jello, and Protein (if you can stomach it). I have already begun drinking my Protein Shakes some are definitely better than others. Oh n make sure you have it pain meds filled.

    I found it, it pretty much talks about stuff to take to the hospital. I was mainly wondering what to buy for when I get home. Since I prob wont be getting out right away. Things maybe some people wish they would have got or did get and are glad they did. food, shakes, Vitamins and what kind. that sort of stuff.
