    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.
  6. The surgeons office should know what all is next. and should help you with filing your insurance.
  7. I am on the second week of my pre op diet and the scale isn't moving... I am following exactly like my doc said Nd I keep hearing about these 12 to 20lb losses and I have only lost like 3 lbs...

    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.
  16. Today is day 1 of all liquids, and honestly this seems easier that the stage where I was allowed to eat 1 time per day. Maybe last wekk prepared me for this week!!! only 6 days till surgery day. Woohoo!!!

  17. My suggestion would be to be prepared to answer questions and reassure them that this is the best option for you. You might be pleasantly surprised. I did not keep this a secret from anyone. I told everyone of any importance in my life and almost everyone has been amazingly supportive. My husband was a bit skeptical at first but once i explained it to him and he read some literature on it he has been totally on board. The only person who has been negative was my father in law and I just ignored him (he is always so negative anyway).
  18. I am on mine now for surgery the 8th... the first day was easy the 2nd through 4th have been hard but today I seem to have had a breakthrough it has not been bad today. Just push towards the light at the end of the tunnel, and everyone of us will be great!!! Best Wishes fellow baripals
  19. Day 5 of pre op diet... today is better. Thank God for broth it has helped a lot especially with it being so cold outside. My next challenge is next week when it is all protein shakes and liquids. On the bright side though I am almost there 9 days till surgery

    Opinions on sleeve vs. bypass?

    I chose RNY because my surgeon told me tgat with my T2D that is what he recommends... because with RNY patients have significant reduction of insulin resistance b4 significant weight loss. Without T2D I would have prolly gone with sleeve. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

      Oh man, I remember how miserable that was. Was one of the hardest parts of the process in my opinion. I was starving, ornery and my brain wasn't working right....just felt kinda unhinged. Was awful! Just keep putting one foot in front of the other...you'll get there and after surgery, it's tough, but it's all down hill. You got this! Keep up the hard work!

      Today I am so nauseous the carb withdrawal is awful... I haven't felt this way in almost 11 years when I got off meth. I am just trying to distract myself from it and remind myself that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
