  1. Well after being denied and appealing the surgery and waiting 7 weeks for a surgery date which is 3/18, I believe they are canceling my revision due to the virus. Because it’s elective.  I hope I’m wrong. I am in so much pain from the heartburn. I’ve been on a liquid diet for 2 weeks.  I’m so upset. 
  2. So now once again my Surgery, revision, has been CANCELLED. was postponed for 3/18 to 4/25 now cancelled all together. ;-(

    I made it under the wire by 3 days and they cancelled on 3/15 for 3/18 the first time. I understand the safety aspect. glad you’re doing well. mine is just a revision so I’ll be okay.

    hope you’re keeping well i knew they shut down all non essential elective surgeries till April. Now may. I didn’t hear that yet on the news maybe it’s north well making their own decisions.

    It’s okay. I’m just throwing myself a pity party since getting the call this morning lol The heartburn is horrendous still and I just want this over. My son is supposed to get married in June and wanted this under control ... plus worrying about them cancelling the wedding.

    Good luck to you. My hospital has “no elective surgeries till 4/15”. This was the first avail date. I am disappointed but understand. My son gets married beginning of June so I wanted it all over lmao maybe they’ll lift the ban here. Unsure.

    Yes. We have a bunch In Ny today and schools closed for 2 weeks. I can’t take the heartburn. I know people are sick. I just can’t.

    Thanks. I’m just disappointed etc. I’ll be fine. The heartburn ick for another few weeks... until all the bans are lifted. I don’t wish the virus though on anyone.

    Pill box

    Seems like a dummy question. Haha. But I have used a 7d vitamin holder am/pm and seems to work for my regular meds. Being revised next week, and just ordered a bunch of Bariatric chews etc. I would like to keep everything together so I’m prepped when I get home. a regular box won’t keep a few chews and fit it properly. Maybe ziplock type item. thanks.

    Vitamins

    Vitamins, after bypass.. Suggestions please - I had regular gummies since last year, took Flinstones right after my sleeve in 2015. Now getting a revision next week, want to make sure I have a good vitamin on hand for when I get home. Thanks

    Revision 318

    What are you talking about? I’ve left the band??? What!? Just a worker in the office, due to the coordinator being on vacation, she said 2 weeks. You don’t need to be rude “no brainer”.
  23. Hi all 🙂 I need to prep for a revision for next week. I have my old “sleeve” paperwork... is it different you think? Surgeons office said 2 weeks liquid but I did not do that last time with my nutritionist. 🤦🏻‍♀️ (who I’ve called and emailed and don’t have time to go see her again). My surgical coordinator is on vacation, so can’t ask him. Process was started 8-10 weeks ago and day before pre surgeon testing, last Thursday, they denied my revision. I appealed it and 48 hours later it was over turned. Thank God. But now I’m behind The eightball with the liquid diet. This GERD and hernia is horrible. All day non stop GERD. Doing double dose of meds per the surgeon for months now. So, here I am. Unsure if I should start vitamins again, good ones etc. I chew on some gummies when I remember (I know, my bad). Unsure if they are going in lap or endo to do revision. I guess I could call and find out. Suggestions? I have protein shakes and broth. Jello and pudding too. Ice pops.

    VSG to Revision

    Emblem has changed for us. They base approval on Empire 🤦🏻‍♀️ I don’t even want to go there. I was so aggravated for days and hours on the phone everyday. grrr. I wish you luck
  25. I had a sleeve done in 2015, did well, lost 92 lbs, gained back about 25 lbs now, during the past year as I cannot get my heartburn/Gerd under control. I was given Protonix again, was on it after surgery, but now a stronger dose... I went to my surgeon, actually his colleague in the same office and she advised to up the dosage of the Protonix and get an end and some studies done. I did that -- they did some Xrays, a CT scan, endo and colonoscopy and I was told stay on the meds at this rate for at least 3 months. She said any changes or its worse, come in and see her before the 3m time and since she was ready to give birth any mind, said to see her colleague. I did just that - she's out on maternity leave and I saw another dr. in her office and he suggested upping the meds again, to 2x per day and another over the counter at night time so avoid the GERD issues. I can't keep anything down, you'd think I would be thin LOLLL it's the opposite, I'm maintaining, but I have GERD 24/7. Its horrible, even water does it. So long story short - he said he would recommend the revision, which she did too - as well as fix an umbilical hernia I have that bothers me. The surgical coordinator called, temporary scheduled for March 18 for a revision, said he will get pre auth from GHI, my insurance and if it's weight gain, don't get my hopes up of it being approved.. he's always been a non friendly guy, even years ago, it's like I'm bothering him. He must deal with horrendous people all day to act the way he does, but besides that.... He said don't get my hopes up and he'll pencil me in for March 18. He said I didn't come back to the office for years, erhmm, why should I - I was feeling fine... Gastro doc told me my GERD could be due to the sleeve and to go back to my surgeon, which I did - has nothing to do with weight gain - I'm not dealing with GERD for the rest of my life.... It's really really bad.. Anyway, GHI said they cover the procedure, just needs pre auth and it could take 7-10 days to get back... so I'll keep my fingers crossed and not listen to the surgical coordinator guy ... maybe he needs a drink LOL Anyone have any luck with GHI/Emblem Health for the revision - my husband carries City Of NY coverage of GHI. Good luck all
