    July Sleevers

    What are July Sleevers doing to pass the time? I have another month left for the end of the year and I don't know what to do. I was told not to start my pre-op liquid diet yet , I have not a clue as to what to do while waiting? I am hearing all these numbers about percentage of weightloss after surgery do you know is the wightloss percentage 30% 50% less or more?

    Best Protein Shakes Ever!

    Another one that I liked as my second choice was the OH Yeah! protein shake and protein bar. It has 18 grams of protein for an 8 oz bottle. I didn't care for strawberry a little after taste but vanilla and chocolate was okay. Not at great as the organic cafe mocha though. I am really excited I found something that I found something doesn't taste like medicine, has a chalky after taste or is totally gross.

    H Pylori

    I get my result back today for the breath test. I am praying my surgery is not pushed back.
  14. Don't know what is going on first they said sleeve is not covered. Then it is covered did all paperwork and it is not covered? Now it is covered I am confused. My employer said " I don't know" Good thing benefit person said she is going to try and find out hopefully monday. My doctor said $60,000 for the sleeve. Seriously, who can pay for that? Omg really, really , really. I thought it was much cheeper. Not including hospital stay. Seriously, Seriously, seriously ! I really trust this doctore but I am going to stay postive. Any information , anyone at all! I am suppose to have surgery July 3rd now my insurance company tells me 4 weeks before surgery they are not sure if it is covered.

    July Sleevers

    Okay I took my breath test for h.pylori and I won't find out if I am having surgery until the day of surgery. I am so bummed out. I can't wait anoher 2 or 3 weeks for surgery. However, I think it is harder waiting until the day before surgery to find out if it will happened. What symptoms if any did anyone have after taking the liquid and breath test for h.pylori?

    Stomach Bacteria-H Pylori

    I have to blow in a bag to assure the doctor I don't have stomach bacteria. I already took a Upper GI Endoscopy and the doctor said everything is perfect. However, the test results which finalize the test will take 7 to 10 days. My blood results were inconclusive, which mean the numbers were not low enough to tell I didn't have stomach bacteria and not high enough to show I had stomach bacteria. Today I have an appointment to get clearance for surgery and then I have to go back to the doctor to blow in a bag. This is nerve racking. ughhh!

    Calling Fellow Teachers!

    I hoping the same thing. However, if it doesn't work out I am just going to say I am on a liquid diet to lose some weight. It will be so busy when school starts a protein shake will help me to eat better anyway. This pre-op diet is hard, hard , hard. I use to be more focus , What happened to my will power. LOl
