    July Surgeries??

    I finally have a surgery date for July 20th! Protein diet starts Monday!
  2. Hey All! I wanna know how long it took all of you to get your surgeries. I'm talking like FIRST doctors appointment to OPERATING ROOM. Also, what insurance do you guys have?
  3. I will definitely give it a listen!
  4. Good luck to you! Another fast track to success.
  5. That is odd! Insurance companies are so full of it.
  6. So the 6-8 weeks included meeting with initial surgeon, then a nutritionist, a psychologist and a physiologist. I also had to do bloodwork. This was all over the time between thanksgiving and New Years so part of the delay was just the normal trying to schedule things year end rush. Ohhhh. I get it now. The holidays are the worse time to expect people to do their jobs.

    Let me tell ya'll about this dream...

    ( I also posted this in the VSG forum) Good morning everyone! I had a super weird dream last night and I couldn't wait to get to work so I can tell you all about it. It's a long one. I hope to get VSG during spring break. I am freaking out about every detail because I've never had to stay in a hospital before. So here goes... The dream started out with a call from the hospital. They called me and told me to come in immediately for my surgery. I was confused because I thought my surgery would be happening at a later date. I told the woman on the phone that and she hit me with "Do you want the surgery or not?" So I'm like, "Yeah. I'm on my way." So my boyfriend and I get to the hospital and I'm so freaked out. I noticed that we did not pack a hospital bag and I was upset because I didn't have lip balm. (A lot of you guys say lip balm is a life saver after surgery.) So I was upset. My boyfriend offers me his lip balm but I'm still upset. So then, a doctor comes and separates us. The hospital staff puts me on a table and numbs an area on my stomach. In my mind I'm like, "So this is it. Here I go." So only a small part of my stomach is numb and the surgeon is like "Okay WeGettingThere, I'm gonna do an incision." He cuts a little and he leaves me like that. I'm not bleeding or anything. There's just this small gash in my belly. The surgeon is like "My assistant will finish this." HE LEAVES ME. The assistant doesn't do anything! She shows me to my recovery room and my boyfriend is there waiting for me. I'm like "Excuse me. I don't think I'm supposed to be left like this." AGAIN, I'M NOT BLEEDING. The assistant says I'm fine and to relax while she sits at the foot of my recovery bed and watches Maury or Jerry Springer. I forget. END OF DREAM. So that was my dream. What do you all think? Did you guys have dreams about your procedures? Share them!

    Because after I posted it in the VSG forum, I thought that maybe rants and raves would be a more appropriate home for it. Does the post being in two places make sense now?
  11. Damn 6-9 weeks for appointments? That's alot.

    Let me tell ya'll about this dream...

    That's so interesting. I usually have dreams about big events in my life. I've been looking into the surgery for a while. However this was the first dream I had about it.
  14. I just had my second weight management class! Looking for friends who might get their surgeries in the spring! I'm new here. I live in the Bronx, but any friends would be accepted lol
  15. I'm doing my surgery at Montefiore. My boyfriends mother got her surgery at Montefiore and she said it was fine.
  16. I I'm noticing alot of folks with Cigna
  17. Dang girl. Looks like you're on the fast track to success! Good luck to you.
  18. I'm sorry you had so many roadblocks! You are so strong.
  19. DAAAAANNNNNG! Money Honey!
  20. Woah, that's super quick. I hope I can schedule my surgery for April so that I can recover during spring break too. I'm a student.
  21. Listen guys, I knew I wanted this surgery for a long time. I know I want to lose weight so that I'm not diabetic anymore. I went to my second weight management class last week and filled out some paperwork. One of the questions asked what our goal weight was. I have no freaking clue! I'm about to be 22, and I'm a 5 foot 2 female. I weigh 205 pounds now. No clue what I would be happy with? How did you all decide your goal weight? Did you let your doctor decide for you? Thanks
  22. Most definitely. I have Medicaid. It's a super common, super free insurance. So I'm like "Oh yeah, they are going to make this hard for us."
