    LBS15 got a reaction from FJ40guy in Cheated every day of 7 day pre op diet   
    I came to the board excited about surgery 3/9 until I read this. I have a 10 day pre op diet of 3 Bariatric Advantage shakes a day, 700-900 calories and Water each day. I had a few days I wasn't perfect. But I weighed myself today and have lost 16 pounds in 9 days. I'm good with that. I may not have been perfect but would not use that as a reason to delay surgery. And I wouldn't take advice off the internet of whether or not I should reschedule a surgery. While yes there is ownership over this pre op plan but in reality we have very different plans. My plan is not tailor made to me it comes from a preprinted manual. The doctor does it for everyone. Following a pre op diet exactly may be an indicator for future success but I don't believe that. I know what I'm going to need to do and realize that this surgery is a tool to that end which for me is what I need. My point is I think people need to be careful dispensing and listening to medical advice on the internet.

    LBS15 got a reaction from alwaysvegas in Had initial appointment today!   
    I had my appointment today for surgery screening. My doctor does all everything in one day. Including: psychology testing, meeting with dietician, medical history review and testing; insurance coverage info; and set up appointment for EGD, EKG and chest X-ray. I'm very excited. I got to reading too much negative stuff and was worried about having the gastric sleeve. I go 2/10 for the other tests and then surgery consult is set up after that. Only insurance requirement my weight has to stay where it is between now and surgeon consult.

    LBS15 got a reaction from #9grammy in BMI, attention from men, etc   
    Hi! I'm going 1/20 for my pre screening appointment. I'm very excited to do this. I've been fighting this weight issue since I was 10. My BMI is right at 35 but I'm diabetic, fatty liver, high cholesterol, snoring/apnea so I'm covered by insurance but I've been told to make sure that my weight is still at least 240 by 1/20. I have not been eating well but am worried about the weighing in. Do they do it naked? I'm worried I won't be able to gain. When I try to lose I can't and I can't gain!
    Also, the biggest worry I have about this surgery (besides leaks) is unwanted attention after weight loss. I have issues with compliments and not sure how to mentally deal with that. I'm very happy with my marriage and that is not the issue.
    And is there anything else I need to think about?
