    Why is everything so sweet?

    I have being dealing with the same thing.. shakes with the artificial sweeteners taste super sweet and would cause me to throw up... I have the Unjury Chocolate sweetened with Splenda..I have to add pure Cocoa and PB2(additional protein) to cut the sweetness. Unjury also has Chicken and Santa Fe Chile flavors... I plan to order those next. Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app

    October Bypass

    I love reading you guys posts! When I get to worrying about the particulars of surgery, I just do a search and find what you all experienced/experiencing... which is a great help. My Bypass surgery date is Oct 15th... my doctor's nurse told me I only have to do 7 day liquid diet, but i think i may try to start a little early.. I go to my Pre-Op testing and Dietician class on Oct 2nd then will see my surgeon on Oct 3rd... Best of luck to all of you! [emoji847] Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Last minute payment

    I have paid my Surgeon $790(before my first appt with him) and the hospital called and said I would have to pay them $1300, 10 days before surgery... my date is October 15th. The payments will satisfy my Out-Of-Pocket(OOP) expense with my insurance for the year. Once OOP is met, insurance will pay 100% of my medical expenses... for the remainder of this year Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app
  5. Did your surgeon have you stop Contravene before surgery? If so, how many days/weeks before surgery? I want to wean myself off the drug. My surgery date is Oct 15th.

    October 2018 Sleevers

    I finally got my surgery date yesterday. I am having the gastric bypass on Oct. 15th. After I got the date, I instantly felt sick to my stomach....which I knew it was only my nerves..lol... I am so excited. I started the process last October, got approved for the sleeve August 9th. Then my Dr recommended the bypass due to GERD... Got the approval for the bypass on Sept 17th. I go for a protesting appt and dietician appt on Oct 2nd.

    Insurance approval

    I was happy and surprised it was that quick.. although I was approved on the 9th, it is now the 29th and I have not recieved a surgery date from my Dr. office.... I have paid the Dr. Pre-pays, have spoken to the hospital regarding their pre-pays, but still no date. I was told to wait until the nurse calls me.... I'm trying to remain in good spirits knowing I did get approval from my insurance, but the wait is killing me. [emoji58] Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app

  10. Yes! Lol... I had to read what he wrote on the back of a piece of paper... which was fold the paper and lay it on the floor to my left. Sent from my SM-N920V using BariatricPal mobile app
  11. I got tickled reading your post... I don't know why she would ask such questions.... that is odd. I was asked once the following questions, during the interview, that I thought were odd: What is today's date What is the current season What street is his office on Count back from a 100 by 7s He had me do a few excersises to see if I could follow directions/instructions. I think he was just trying to determine my state of mind. Sent from my SM-N920V using BariatricPal mobile app
  12. He came in to check how I was doing and I was on question #352... he said, "oh ok, you have ~250 more to go."... I was screaming OMG! (In my mind..lol). My appt was at 8a, we started on time, I was walking to my car at 11:40a! Sent from my SM-N920V using BariatricPal mobile app
  13. I was asked during my psyc eval about whether I reached all milestones growing up, do I feel like a failure, am I depressed, what is my alcohol consumption like, have I done any illicit drugs... what is my relationship with my family, do I understand the risk of surgery, do I understand what would be required after wls. After that interview, I took the MMPI Diagnostic test... that was ~570 questions... it was a very long appt. Sent from my SM-N920V using BariatricPal mobile app
