  1. I can't believe I'm already a month out from my VSG. I saw my surgeon yesterday and I'm down 33 lbs all together (23 from surgery day) I was so discouraged that I wasn't losing fast enough but I was told I was doing beautifully ! Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  2. You know with the sleeve how you're supposed to wait 30 mins after meals and no eating with. Sometimes it takes me so long to eat so little and I want a drink so bad I just decide the food isn't worth it so I can start timing for a drink [emoji28] [emoji28] [emoji16] Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  3. I finally feel back to myself. I'm off all pain meds and nausea meds. I've been sleeping great ! I'm down 20 lbs (7pre op 13 post op) I have my 1 week FU tomorrow and I'm hoping since I've had a great fluid intake I'll be moved to purees. 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 I have 6 little scars and they all seem to be healing nicely so far [emoji4][emoji4] Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  4. That was a rough time. The surgery went text book according to the surgeon but I woke up with the worst nausea. I was vomiting (air) for about 6 hours post op. They gave me several types of meds to help but told me the more I rest the better I'll feel. They kept me on medication for nausea and pain until about 10-11 the next day. Then I was able to get up and walk around. Did laps and then would fall back asleep. I'm so much better feeling today. Anyone who tries to say this is the "easy" way has lost their minds. [emoji36] definitely harder than I expected. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  5. I just got my call, I'm approved through BCBS !! My surgery date is 2/14 [emoji16][emoji16][emoji16] I'll be getting a VSG. [emoji119][emoji119][emoji119] Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  6. What are some suggestions for packing my bag. What did you take to the hospital on your surgery day !?? 🤷🏻‍♀️[emoji4][emoji418]️ Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  7. I have been on my all liquids preop diet since Wednesday and I've been tracking all of my intake on Baritastic ( an app suggested to use by my nutritionist) I have been crushing my protein goals (70grams a day) and staying below my sugar/carb/ fat intake. My water intake has been great as usual. I have been hitting between the 700-800 calorie mark each day (normal as I'm told) but I have been struggling with a vertigo feeling today. I'm not sure if anyone else has had this and if so what helped or did it continue. I see my surgeon on Monday but I wanted to pick someone's brain. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Liquid diet

    It's when I go from sitting or laying to walking around. I feel dizzy most of my day if I'm up and moving around. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

  11. I am at the end of my pre op requirements. I did 6 months of a supervised diet, a psych eval. Saw a nutritionist and spoke with a exercise physiologist. My weight loss center has sent over my information to my insurance today and I am a nervous wreck !! How long did it take everyone else to hear back from BCBS ? What were some of your requirements ? Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  12. I'm just wondering about how long did everyone else take off for recovery ? I was told 1-2 days in the hospital and then about a week after before I return to work. I work in a triage unit for a hospital so I'm wondering if maybe 2 weeks would be better or overkill. [emoji848] I know everyone is different I'm just looking for more information.

  13. Perfect !! Thanks so much. It's always hard to tell what's right when you haven't been through it yet hahah Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  14. I've read that everyones BCBS is a little different. I'm in Ohio and I haven't read much about approval time here yet. I'll try not to get too anxious about it hahaha Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  15. That doesn't seem too bad !! Did you already get your approval !?? How exciting !! (: Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  16. Oh my goodness. I'm sorry you had to go through so much hassle. I am trying to stay positive but it's so hard to tell what the insurance will do ! [emoji4] [emoji4] Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
