    2 weeks post-op

    2 weeks post-op... and started back to work today. Feels great to start back to a somewhat normal schedule. Any advise on eating lunch with co-workers? I'm comfortable with some discussion about my meals but don't want to be the center of attention? HW - 285 SW- 250 CW - 236 Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app
  2. Colin... I was in therapy with a psychologist for a year before i decided I was ready to look into surgery. I am now 2 weeks post op and am thankful that i have that mental support. Everyone os different but for me the mental and emotional aspect of it is where the true work is. I smoked for 18 years... my dr told me that i need to quit but also i can keep trying and failing... and when i was mentally and physically ready to quit i would. He was right! I had to quit to get approved and it was easy for me. When you are ready to change you will know it... and it will seem easy to do. Until then don't beat your self up too much. Keep at it and when the time os right you won't look back. Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app
  3. Had RNY on 6-18-18 with Dr. Rantis at the Kane center. Felt very comfortable with the pre surgery process with all of them. My PCP is with a different medical group and has said that after being involved with my journey he is very impressed with the Kane center and plans on referring patients to them Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Any other gay sleevers out there?

    Anybody in Chicagoland area? Northwest suburbs here. 6 days post op for RNY. My husband is supportive and has been with me the entire journey but would be nice to know guys who have had or having the surgery. (And Happy Pride) Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app
