    rmc32587 got a reaction from shannalynne in How long after surgery where you, when got pregnant?   
    I was 4 months post-op when I found out I was pregnant. I am now 17weeks pregnant and 7 months post-op. I have been having nausea and vomiting since about 6 weeks pregnant. But other than that everything seems to be fine

    I'm a nurse... I'm having my surgery March 10th at the hospital I work at. I also work 12hr shifts, at night. I am only taking 2 weeks off. I can't afford to take longer and I think it will be just fine. The people I work all know I'm having surgery and they are very helpful. If I need longer I know my manager will work with me.

    I got my approval today for March 10
    I start my pre-op diet on Monday... not sure of Protein source yet. The office has food/ protien supplements that they prefer you purchase. I'll know more on Monday based on what they recommend

    Just found out on yesterday I was approved for my sleeve. I must admit I was a little bit worried being that on my last appt with the patient advocate @ True Results she informed me I may or may not be approved due to #1 my BMI was not over 40 in 2012 and due toy blood pressure being under control with meds and my sleep apnea is too mild to be a factor to automatically qualify for the surgery, #2 in the course of the 6 month required visits instead of losing weight I gained 17 lbs...I received the call from the surgeon's office saying they needed me to schedule my consultation. My information was submitted less than 3 weeks ago. What a good turn around time! BTW I have BCBSMN!!

    Hello today I had my first appointment with the nut. And what she told me was i won't be able to get a surgery date until maybe the first of the year. And if i miss one appointment with her. I will have to start all over again another six months. She also said your month start from the first day you meet with her.

    Welcome.... I've been considering having the sleeve done since last fall, but I only got serious about it this spring. I'm in my 6 month weight loss program, and have just been to my first month's meeting, so I have 5 months to go on it. I'm hoping by November or December to be able to schedule the surgery.
    I had the Psych eval done, and my insurance wouldn't cover most of it because I wasn't accepted yet for the weight loss surgery. Well, heck! I can't even apply for that until after this 6 months! Soooo....if I were you, you may want to hold off on that part of the requirement (if your insurance requires that), until real close to the end of your 6 month diet requirement. Yep, I'm bummed....I'm rather poor and that $300.00 was not in my budget!
    Anyway.... what I meant to say before I got sidetracked... was welcome!

    Hi I'm new here and am considering getting the sleeve done. My insurance requires the consecutive 6 month weight loss program before approval so if I do have it done it won't be until January ish.... Since i haven't started the 6 month program yet. I just wanted to make myself known since mainly I've just been reading other's posts to get more info. Any advice is welcome
