    Anyone else scheduled in October? Let's stay in touch during this process! I have to take one more informational class. Have an EGD done and do a 2 week liquid only diet. During the the diet I have to drink the doctor's Protein drinks. Hope they are good!

    Keeping it a secret

    I feel the same way, I haven't told many people. Only my mom, dad, aunt, my boss and 1 other person at work because she planing on doing the same thing. I just don't want to hear any negative opinions before surgery.

    I was denied!

    Aetna policy says you cannot gain anything from your first weigh in. That's what my doctors office told me. Before my appointments I would go on a strict diet with Isopure Protein drinks and might sound bad but I would take a laxative before appt. It will clean you out and if you are backed up lose a pound or 2. Good luck!
