    February 2021 Sleeve Surgery

    Feb. 26th. I’m very excited.
  3. It’s been a while but I’m back. I have been suffering from GERD and Regain. Insurance fought me all the way but I was finally aloe for revision. Meeting with my Surgeon next month, hopefully to set date.

    BCBS denial

    Yes. Stop appealing and contact Lindstrom Obesity Advocates. They helped me get mine overturned.

    I’ve been approved for a revision

    Thanks everyone. Insurance criteria varies by providers. Most want it to be “medically” necessary. Surgery failure, weight gain, complications etc. I used a medical advocate to gain approval.

    Did your doctor clear you for sex?

    BCBS Michigan PPO TT and lift?

    I have the same insurance. I'm just starting my journey (5 days post op). But I am curious. Let me know what you find out. Ask them to send it to you in writing. Usually the agent will give you clear cut answers.
  12. See your dermatologist. Cocoa butter and bleaching creams might work.

    Talk me down

    Just went grocery shopping 4 days post op. Scary. So many behaviors I was in aware of. I was pacing back and forth in the check out line looking for purse fillers. Checked the beverage cooler twice. Wow! Staking food. Nearly passed out. I walked so much. My son had to talk me down. I'm on full liquids why was i still in the store? The mind is powerful.

    5 days Post OP - sad, depressed

    One more thing, we made the decision to improve our lives thru VSG. Our spouses did not make this commitment. They love us but we've got to love ourselves enough to be true to ourselves and have the courage of our convictions. Simply put this is our fight! They will cheer us on from time to time. We will pause and appreciate it but that is not our motivation. A healthy life is our motivation. ( preaching to myself here )

    5 days Post OP - sad, depressed

    Im sorry. I was the same way. I had spasms every time i swallowed. The sips are not even sips. It's bird trickles of liquids pausing. Today i had made with only a few. Be patient.

    What's the story behind your profile name?

    My name is Hebrew and means The Glory of God.
  23. I had my surgery Tuesday too. I came home weighing the same as when I went in. As of today I have lost 9 lbs. I am pushing proteins and water. I also took a 20 min walk today.
  24. Glorious Release

    surgery date is monday October 28th

    I am feeling better today. Trying to get my liquids in still. Stepped on the scale (drum roll please). Already down 5 pounds. Gotta get that protein in so that it's more than water weight.

    I was discharged last night and "slept" in my own bed. I'm a little sore when changing positions but haven't had to take pain meds. Teaching myself what a VSG sip of liquids is. Gulping hurts. Could barely eat anything. So excited to see results.
