  1. I agree with the milk comment-I had trouble with milk products before surgery, and now I am completely lactose intolerant since I had surgery. That cuts out a lot of your options!! You just have to find what works best for you!! Good luck..

    August sleever time us ticking

    I am in the same boat with you. I have a preliminary date scheduled for August 6th, but am still waiting on insurance to approve everything so I can have the surgery done. My nerves are through the ceiling while I wait. Good luck to you on your surgery!! Tammy

    12 days till Surgery!

    I can't wait to be in your shoes..My final appt is last Tuesday and I am so ready to be done with this pre-op diet and just have the procedure done. No more waiting around. Good luck!! Tammy
  7. My insurance also had me on a 6 month pre-operative journey, I guess you would call it! My doc just asked me what diets that I had tried and I just told him a bunch that I had tried before. He didn't ask for any other kind of proof! I think they just want to make sure that you are not just doing this for a cosmetic procedure, because it is meant to be a lifestyle change and not just to look pretty. I hope your doc isn't that picky about the diet thing!! Sucks about your last journey..that would have really made me upset..hope all goes well for you..Tammy
  8. I know that I have already posted, but I can't find my post so I will do it again. You gotta love technology right? lol I am going to my last appointment of 6 months on July 17th and my hubby and I are both being sleeved on August 20th. So I will join you August sleevers!!! I am excited, nervous, overwhelmed, worried, scared, and most of all proud of myself for making the decision to go ahead with the surgery while I am still young and can benefit from weight loss. Good luck to everyone!! Tammy

    ☼ 7/30/2013 ☼ My Sleeve Day

    I am hoping that July 30th is going to be my date also..but we will have to wait and see. My last appt is July 17th and then I have to schedule surgery. I want to have it done before the first of August because I am a teacher and don't want to be in pain for the first day of school. Good luck to everyone!!!
  10. Well, I am not sure when my surgery will be for sure. I go for my last doctors appt on July 17th, and then paperwork will be sent into insurance for approval. I am hoping that it will be the end of July or the beginning on August because I am a teacher and I would like to have the procedure before school starts. Like most of us, i am very nervous, but excited at the same time. My husband is also having the procedure done within a couple weeks of myself, so we can support each other and get healthy for our children. Good luck to all !!! Tammy O
