    Talk to me! I'm new :)

    Good luck! I had my sleeve surgery June 28 and went back to work this week - so far so good.

    Chewable tylenol safe?

    I was about to post and ask about both tylenol and omeprazole...seems like the tylenol answer is above but is anyone taking omeprazole post op? The on call doc said to crush the pill in liquid - has anyone found that a pharmacy can make a suspension (liquid) for you? Or are you swallowing the pill?
  5. Almost 48 hours post op and came home around the 24 hour mark yesterday. Have pain meds but haven’t taken any today - one incision site feels the worst, but the others are ok. I woke up a few hours after also wondering what i was thinking to do this - but had some awesome nurses and support (and pain meds). Slept pretty well last night and took a quick shower today. Trying hard to keep up with fluids and be active enough while resting...am actually feeling hungry so gonna try my hand at a popsicle now. :-) hope everyone else is feeling ok.
  6. Love the pic! I just got my reminder call and they pushed me up from 430 pm to 330pm....and now the anxiety is setting in... good luck 28th crew and everyone else! And well wishes to those recovering today.
  7. @auroragirl4489 I believe 15 business days - so that would be 3 weeks. But again - they said the range was 3-15 and I heard after 7 (business days).
  8. You too @ALFxRNY! Any June 28thers in NC??
  9. @chrisb, FYI I was approved by Aetna choice POS in a week. They stated that their max response time is 15 days so you should have an answer with that time frame or shorter. Good luck!
  10. Late to the game on this forum, but June 28 VSG for me! Right at exactly 48 hours to go 😬
  11. Also this week on June 28....and also my first surgery 😬 good luck to everyone else!

    @sentaric - same! Went shopping for my isopure and such today....trying to calm my nerves by being prepared. Less than a week now - we can do it!

    Any June 2018 Sleevers in Here?!

    Awe thanks @lisarocks. I am already weaned off from caffeine and sugar due to Ramadan (16 hour fasts only eating after sundown and before sunup) so withdrawal happened for me a few weeks ago and I never really went back...it was terrible enough the first time around. I am happy it’s gotten easier for you!! I’m anxious about going all liquid starting tomorrow. I find the shakes make me feel dehydrated and I can’t drink enough water to make up for it and then I just feel tired. Had my hospital registration yesterday so trying to tell myself it will go quickly and get distracted at work. Got the sugar free popsicles as someone suggested to get through.... Reading about everyone on the other side makes me feel so much better when I freak out a bit though - especially the photos :-)

    June 28th for me...Starting 1 week liquid diet tomorrow.
  17. Hi all - i have an insurance-covered VSG scheduled for 6/28 and was curious if anyone had been in the same boat as me. I switched jobs a few weeks ago and was approved under my former job insurance which is active until 6/30. I have new insurance that kicks in on July 1 (after my surgery date). I was curious if anyone had experienced this across two insurances. I’m more concerned how the post-op care is covered or if it would be specifically excluded on my newer policy - especially in any worst case scenario with any post surgical complications etc. Certainly expect to go home the next day, but of course you never know! My new insurance does cover Bariatric, but only when employed by the company for 12 months and onward. Would love to hear others’ experiences here! Thanks in advance.
