    How much did your insurance pay?

    pretty much 99%. I met my out of pocket maximum before surgery but I had other medical stuff throughout the year. So by the time surgery came I paid like $640 which was the hospital stay. i used the rest of my HSA money to pay for that. I had CIGNA PPO Premium

    any thoughts on what to do with the protein clear waters? I cannot stomach those. I have peach and I was considering adding to ice tea.

    5 days post and feeling almost normal. I have been walking 2x a day 10 min each. Yesterday I got 60 grams of Protein in. Today I'm estimating 80. I realized this morning I still like the shakes over the protein Water. I will say I'm getting appetite back and it's all head hunger. I have ordered my pureed groceries for next week as I'm anticipating eating mushy food. As I'm looking forward to phasing out of liquids. My pain is also minimal. I also have not gained or loss since I went in for surgery but I'm not concerned yet about weight. Hope post Novembers are doing well Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    overeating after gastric sleeve

    I am going to start overeaters anonymous too. I am also pre-op. Never had any WL surgery but I know I have an issue with overeating.
  15. Hi Newbie Here. I decided in Jan that I wanted to learn more about WL surgery and I have decided I want to go down this journey. However, I live in CA and my family lives in the Midwest. Outside of this forum, what other places can you find support? I am pre-op and I have my first nutrition and surgeon meeting next month.
