  1. Question*~*. Did anyone take an appetite suppressant (diet pill) prior to surgery? My eating has been out of control lately and I was thinking about purchasing something to help. I have about 2 months prior to surgery and would like to lose some weight prior to surgery. Thanks for your responses ahead of time.

    Question*~* Did anyone take diet pills prior to surgery?

    Thank you for your response. I have decided not to. I did a search and its not safe basically for the reasons you stated. thanks for your response. Here is something I found online from a doctor: Many diet pills contain additives which make your heart race (IE Ephedrine) or interact with anesthesia. Phentermine has been known to drop your blood pressure during surgery and many of my anesthesia colleagues prefer you were not on it.

    Psych Eval

    Like everyone else said.. a lot of questions on a scan-tron. she asked me questions like, how has weight hindered my life and what will losing weight do for me. it is basically a test to see if you are ready for the life style change, really hindered by being overweight -- but not to depressed about it, if that makes sense. i got the impression that if i were to sad about being overweight that it wasn't a good look.. hope this makes sense

    I feel alone...

    Hello Everyone, I have to do the 6 month diet. I have UHC thru Chase Bank. January 19 will be my 4th weigh in. I know I dont have that far to go but it just seems long. All i think about lately is getting sleeved. Thats all I talk about. i was actually going to go to Mexico to have it done in February and not even wait on my insurance company, then I snapped out of that option 1week later.. i guess what makes my 6 month diet so hard is that I cant lose weight during it. I have a BMI of 42.2. my Advocate said if I go below 40 I will be denied. I know I can go below 40 if I work out and eat right. My problem is that I always gain it back--- I typically stay around a BMI of 39.9. So i just wanted to know if there was anyone else out there who is doing the 6 month diet and you are in the same place I am in.. I just feel alone.. lol
