  1. Salad and fresh fruit? I’m a little over 3 weeks post op, bypass. My surgeon said we will discuss moving to lunchmeat at my next visit in 2 weeks. But all I crave is fresh fruit and I’d literally kill for a salad. I plan on asking him at my next visit, but I figured I’d run it by the professionals until then
  2. Surgery is 12 days away. I am placing one last online order to ensure everything arrives one time. Who brought what?

    One month liquid diet

    Try fasting. I lost 17lbs during my 5 day fast.
  5. You shut your damn mouth like right now. After 3 weeks of waiting after insurance submittal, I just received the call that I was approved for the bypass! The[emoji1490] LONGEST[emoji1490] 11 months[emoji1490] of[emoji1490] my[emoji1490] life[emoji1490] That is all. Carry on [emoji482]
  6. My papers were submitted to insurance on Friday(11/10). My NUT says surgery will be 2-3 months from the day of submittal. So, at the very latest I should be having surgery in mid February. I had a surgery buddy. Our appointments were days apart, as we started the program within a week of each other. I found her on a Facebook bariatric page. Well, long story short, she has dropped out of the race and in turn I no longer have a surgery buddy. Or really even a bariatric friend. I never thought to make more friends than her and I should have. I no longer feel comfortable confiding in her about how my appointment went or about anything bariatrics honestly, as I feel I’m rubbing it in her face. I am keeping the surgery discrete, so to have someone else who is going through the same as me surgery wise is crucial to me. I am trying to cram over half a year worth of small talk and acquaintanceship into a few weeks. So please know before responding, that I will be moving fast. Like, we need to become best friends In 8 weeks. I’m 27, I live in the Midwest and am opting for the bypass.

    Last minute bariatrics buddy

    How exciting! Congrats! Did they give you a possible time frame of a potential surgery date? Like within the next two months or by January, etc...

    How brutal! I would have been on edge the entire two times waiting to hear what they had to say. You’re absolutely right, I will def try to keep that in mind. My holy grail is lemon water. If I can’t put fresh lemon in my water after surgery I literally will die. Well, not literally but I’d still be slightly disappointed lol

    How exciting! I can’t wait to get a date. I hope everything goes well for you [emoji847]
  11. That's great! I'm so glad it all worked out for you :-) What 4 day cleanse did you do?
  12. How much did you lose In 7 days on the liquid diet? Were you exercising while doing the liquid diet? If so, what were you doing? What all did you have on the liquid diet?
  13. Were you able to drop those pesky 8lbs in time? If not, message me. We may be in the same boat.
  14. Has anyone NOT met the mandatory weight loss prior to surgery? If your surgeon or insurance requires you to lose "X" amount of weight, and you did not, what happened??
  15. JealousMuch

    weight loss goal before surgery?

    I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. My very best condolences. So even though you hadn't lost the weight they let you carry on through out the program as normal? Like it didn't halt anything?
  16. Can you take liquid gels after having the bypass? Also, please post pictures or list all of the vitamins you're taking after surgery.
  17. I am pre op, which mcg dosage would you recommend for biotin? Also, is there anything else I could be taking for hair loss or to prevent hair loss as much as possible post op?

    Smoking.

    My surgeon requires you to quit smoking at least 6 weeks before surgery. They do urine nicotine cessation.
  19. I am 3 weeks away from my final nutritionist appointment. My insurance requires 6 months of a supervised diet with a nutritionist. I have yet to meet my surgeon. I chose a surgeon with the head nurse in charge of my case back in February. My nutritionist told me my last appointment will consist of a final weigh in, urine sample for nicotine cessation and a visit with the psychologist for a behavioral evaluation. But no mention of meeting the surgeon yet. When can I expect to at the very least get a glimpse of the surgeon?
  20. I am 3 weeks away from my final nutritionist appointment. My insurance requires 6 months of a supervised diet with a nutritionist. She(NUT) told me my last appointment will consist of a final weigh in, urine sample for nicotine cessation and a visit with the psychologist for a behavioral evaluation. I have already had two insurance required appointments with the psychologist at the beginning of this process. I was under the impression that once I finished both appointments I'd be done with the psychologist aspect of the requirements. what is this 3rd appointment with the psychologist for? What is a "Behavioral evaluation"?
  21. JealousMuch

    Behavioral evaluation?

    May I ask why you have to do a colonoscopy and a endoscopy? Is it like a surgeons preference or insurance requirement?
  22. JealousMuch

    Behavioral evaluation?

    See that's what I did during the 2nd appointment. The first appointment was just talking. I don't get it. I completed the whole telling her my life story AND the 300 question test packet. What else does she want from me [emoji30]
  23. How did you pay for your plastics? What's surgeries did you get and what was the price. How much did insurance cover if any?---what was your insurance? Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
  24. Tell me everything I need to know.....
  25. Have you been denied by insurance? If so, what were their reasoning behind it? What was your insurance that denied you for surgery? Were you able to successfully appeal their denial?
