    It's me! I have found myself doing all sorts of health&beauty things since I had my surgery. I'm a 26 year old guy that in the last week has gone to the spa for manicure, pedicure, facial, and massage. I bought all sorts of fancy face scrubs. I had a lady friend fix my straggly eye brows. Spent a ton of money on a fancy electric tooth brush and whitening things. And go to the gym every day. What the heck happened to me!?!?!? I guess I'm feeling better and way more confident and decided I need all of this??? I never would have done all this pre op lol! I can't help but to laugh at myself.

    AnnaBanana reacted to Tink22-sleeve in I Love This Forum And Chat Room   
    I just love this forum and chat room. I have found friends and comrades where I least expected to find them. I have stayed up late at night to chat when I am feeling low, or just cant sleep, or when someone else needs a friend or information. I have laughed out loud at our conversations in the chat room. In the chat room and from the posts, I have learned what to expect and not expect from this surgery.
    Most of all I have found a place where I belong- A place where I can be heard. And that is a special thing, indeed.
    Thank you for walking this path with me. I hope we meet along the way.
    See you in the chat!

    Typically they are looking for clearance and approval from the PCP. Example:
    To whom it may concern
    I, Dr so and so, have been treating paitent xyz for the purpose of weight loss and bariatric surgery. At this time I would recommend surgery for xyz to help with yada yada yada. I feel they are a good candidate for the procedure.
    More professional of course. But just an idea.

    Hey Sweety,
    I have severe sleep apnea too. I stop breathing 58 times an hour. Im still having surgery. My surgeon and pulmonologist know all about it. Ive had it for at least 4 years. A good majority of overweight people I believe have sleep apnea. Does that help?

    I have told everyone, friends, family, random strangers. I have recieved nothing but postive feedback from everyone I told. The only people I haven't told are my husband family because they have been super critical and judgemental of my weight in the past. We will see my husbands mom for the 1st time in 5 years in June and I will be 15 months out. I have no intention of telling her just gonna tell her it was diet and exercise.

    Not to burst your bubble but I have had this happen to me before and I figured out Bra's are made by different manufacturers just like other clothes we buy, how many times have you tried on a certain size within a certain brand and you always wear that size but if you go to a different brand that size you've been wearing no longer fits. Go back to your original brand and see what size works for ya. I hope what I said was understandable.

    I love that I did this for " me". I'm 3 months and a week post op. about 2 lbs a week losing which is great. The only side effect is my hair. But it's not horrible. Thankfully I have lots of hair. It still looks fine . Otherwise i couldn't be happier
    At my heaviest I was a 20. This week I went into a fancy boutique and tried on lots of things. That fit! I grabbed Xl ( before I'd pray they'd fit. Usually didn't). This time I got all large. Xl was too big. It's so strange. I'm a 14 now pretty consistently. It's crazy.
    I rewarded myself witn a membership to a super fancy gym ( I was working out In our complex gym at work and it is great but small. Now I get steam room whirlpool etc. rewards for workouts). And I'm going to start yoga and Pilates
    This is the best thing I've done truly for me ever. Znd my family is benefitting too happier mom

    Alicia and geekgamergirl... I too am in the process of trying to get sleeved. I have Medicaid insurance so I have a check list I have to complete. I had to go to a weight loss seminar which I did on Wednesday.
    Dr. Bautista, at St. Mary's hospital was the speaker that night so he is who I am going to use as well. I see them Nov 1st. Then I have my phyic evaluation Nov 15th. And I don't know when my nutritionist appointment is. Dr Bautista secretary has to make that after I see them on Nov 1st I guess. Then they will turn my stuff into insurance. I am 320 pounds. I am married with three kids and I live near Fredericksburg Virginia. And geekygamergirl I am a girlgamer as well. Call of duty baby!!!! Lol wishing u lots of luck Alicia on ur surgery on the 31st!!! and geeky I am so happy you finally lost enough weight to get ur surgery. High fives all around.... now it's my turn for the waiting game
