I am sooooo excited!  I attended my first seminar 10/2/2018, actually had my surgical consult  10/3/2018.  My HAP insurance approved first letter (with $500.00 deductible due one week prior to surgery).   I can't believe how fast this is moving. I really struggled with deciding between the sleeve and the bypass.  After reaching out and listening to others on this site and also doing my own research I've decided to go with the Gastric Bypass. I got my surgical date today...it's December 4th....my birthday or "re-birthday"  LOL.    I am so inspired and grateful by everyone's stories, input and suggestions.   Wishing everyone well
