  1. I had VSG & hernia repair on July 10th. I thought the shoulder pain was from gas too. It shoots through my left shoulder and goes up the side of my neck. I have noticed it gets worse the more I drink. It hurts so bad at times I want to cry....and I have a high tolerance for pain. I mentioned it to my doctor today, it he didn't seem to overly concerned. How do you get some relief from the pain???? Sent from my SM-G935V using BariatricPal mobile app

    Liquid Diet starts today!

    I start my preop diet on Monday (surgery July 10) and I am thankful it is not liquid only. I do have to have 2 protein shakes per day (2 meal replacements) 3.5 oz of lean protein and I am able to eat all the non starchy vegetables I want, along with sugar free popsicles and jello. I am excited to finally be on this 2 week countdown! We can do this!!! All for a healthier you!!! Best of luck!!! Sent from my SM-G935V using BariatricPal mobile app

    I have a tentative date of either July 7 or 10th....I am in Fayetteville, NC. Whereabouts are you? Sent from my SM-G935V using BariatricPal mobile app
  14. So, I have a question for those of you that have already been approved. My surgeon's ask my PCP for 5 years of weight records. Well, I can only come up with 4. I have reached out to the surgeon's office to see if this was a problem. She told me that most companies only actually look at the last 3 years but she would look in to the specifics of my insurance and get back to me. I am a nervous wreck and would hate to have come this far for me not to get approved over 1 year.....I have 2017, 2016, 2015 & 2014....does anybody have any experience with this situation? I have Tricare Reserve (standard). I am suppose to get sleeved in early July....I don't want any set backs now!! Sent from my SM-G935V using BariatricPal mobile app
