  1. Starting my liquid diet tomorrow so my mom is cooking my favorite meal. Beef and noodles with mashed potatoes. [: Yum! I'm not even sad about it, just EXCITED to know that this is actually happening.
  2. The time will pass before you know it.
  3. It took me a week to get approved. But the the doctors were moving their offices that week so it took 2 weeks to get a date.

    iphone vs blackberry (which one?)

    I have a BlackBerry Torch. Unless you're a business type person I wouldn't get it. Which I'm not. I love it but next time I'll be getting an iPhone or Android.

    Ready to start a new life

    I hope everything goes smoothly and quickly! I went to a seminar at the end of February and now my surgery is in two weeks. I have BCBS Anthem and was approved. I'm 18. Good luck!

    Got my Surgery Date...

    That's awesome! Congrats on your date! I know what you mean about the patience, I have two weeks left and can hardly stand it. I'm about to go insane. ^,^
  7. To keep everyone updated, I went through the process and got approved from insurance. My surgery is May 24th. Thanks again for all the responses, it was nice to reread them again after being approved for the surgery.

    Hey [: I'm 18 and will be having the surgery in about two weeks. I also asked the same question and got a lot of great responses. Here's the link. http://www.verticalsleevetalk.com/topic/14864-getting-sleeved-young/page__p__126112__hl__%2Bgetting+%2Bsleeved+%2Byoung__fromsearch__1#entry126112
  9. I have BCBS Anthem. I'm not sure what state. My BMI was 40.1 and they approved me after a week.

    how long?

    I have BCBS Anthem and they approved me after a week. I then had to wait another week because the hospital where I am having my surgery was closed that week. But I got my date today. [:

  13. First of all, I got my date!! May 24th. I'm very excited. It felt awesome to make my ticker. Second, My mom is waiting till after my 2 week check up before we move to Colorado. That's a ten hour drive. Does anyone know what I should have with me, as in will there still be discomfort? What type of food should I bring with me? Though I really do not like eating fast food, if I have to go to one what would you recommend? If nothing I'll just eat a bunch of yogurt or something lol. Advice is appreciated, thanks!
  14. Whoops, I didn't see this before I responded.
