  1. Not quite 2 months out. Down 35lbs the first month. Been at the same weight for almost all of the following 3 weeks now. So frustrating. I hope this changes soon. It's very discouraging when I'm following my instructions to a T. I see my surgeon and nutritionist on the 9th. Hopefully the scale will move or they will have some advice for me!

    Stupid stall

    That's what I keep telling myself. My husband keeps telling me that even if the scale isn't seeing changes, he can clearly see (and feel) my body changing. So I am trying to be strong! Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app
  4. My bill before insurance was $146,000. For a traditional DS, hiatal hernia repair, gall bladder removal and appendectomy. The insurance paid like $58,000. My out of pocket was $1500. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app
  5. Almost 3 weeks post op from my DS here. Feel great except for the reflux or heartburn I get whenever I eat or drink anything. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    June 4th surgery twins?

    I'm doing good! Sore from the gas. But manageable. 4.5 hour surgery. Took my first walk about 30 minutes ago. No nausea, just exhaustion. Sipping water and trying to get some jello down. I hate jello. How are all my twinsises feeling? Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    June 4th surgery twins?

    I was only required 2 days of liquids pre-op. I'm doing 3 because I can't properly read a calendar apparently! I have been straight up HANGRY. But so excited for tomorrow!!! 3-4ish hours of surgery and hopefully only 1-2 days in the hospital. Best of luck for all of us! We've got this! Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Got my date!

    I do! U of M all the way! My date is coming up soon, but a little worried that I will end up having to reschedule since I came down with a cold. Fingers crossed we don't have to reschedule! Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app
  13. Has anybody gotten sick right before their surgery and NOT had to reschedule? I have to call my surgeon's office in the morning, but curious if this has happened to anyone else. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Lol well of course! But I'm originally from Michigan, so I'd never be a turkey! Maybe a wolverine! But they don't have one of those either. Lol. So I'll put an elephant. [emoji208] Just because I like them. Lol Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

  18. So I've been waiting around 3 weeks to find out if I'm approved for my surgery. I called my surgeon's office today to see if they had heard anything, and they were still waiting for the psych eval to submit to insurance. The psych eval that I did over 3 weeks ago. That he said he would fax over that same day. Good thing I wasn't in a rush! Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Silly Psychiatrist

    I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt because it was at lunch time and it's entirely possible he just forgot. Or thought one of his office people did it. I should have called to check sooner, so that's on me as well. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

  22. Has anyone in here used Dr. Syn at Advanced Bariatric Surgery Center? I really like him, but was just curious if anyone else has used him. I'm currently waiting on insurance approval for my DS. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Sending to Insurance!

    Thanks everyone! I will keep everyone posted when I recieve my date! Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app
  24. I had my EGD today. The doctor found that I have a hiatal hernia, GERD, gastritis and esophogitis. So he's going to fix my hernia during surgery. My insurance only requires an EGD and a psych evaluation. I did that yesterday, and saw my surgeon and nutritionist today after my EGD. And got the go ahead to send to insurance for approval! I should know in 2 weeks!! Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app
