    2 more days

    Just 2 more days till surgery day. Suddenly I am terrified. I have no doubt I want this I am just scared of the pain. I am in recovery from addiction so i will not take pain meds home from the hospital and I am scared I will need them. Or suffer from to much pain.

    Liquid Diet Tips

    Sugar free jello is my friend right now. My program allows me as much of it as I want. I have started mixing flavors to keep it interesting. I am on day 4 of all liquids day 10 of preop.

    January bypass buddies??

    4 more days till surgery day!!! woohoo
  15. not my insurance but i have heard of it being this way... more and more insurances are getting rid of the medically supervised diet requirement. Yes it should make it easier you will likely only need a letter of necessity for your PCP. However, your surgeon may require more than your insurance like Psych clearance. Congratulations on your decision and best of luck in your journey.
