    Quinnmedicinewoman52 got a reaction from Krimsonbutterflies in RNY timeline   
    My surgery is set for Dec. 30th, I called my insurance and they sent my Job protected leave paperwork 9/10/19. Also known as FMLA. They told me if my surgery date change then they will accommodate that change. I requested 2 weeks, not thinking I need all those days since I work remotely, but wanted to make sure I'm drinking ok. I had lap band removal July 12th and have been seeing my Dct since May to request for Roux En Y. When I went back for post OP visit he asked me if I was ready and I requested before end of year due to my out of pocket expenses have all been paid. He was and is so great he has me scheduled for Dec 30th hoping nothing changes other than a sooner date.

    So, I am both excited and scared. I have already packed my suitcase and I made sure I have long gowns or should I say MooMoos to wear while walking up and down the hallway. Is there anything else, other than my personal items I will need? I am contemplating purchasing a binder any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have already purchased, sippy cups, Vitamins, Protein Shakes, shaker bottle and plenty of water! She has me set up for an appt. and informed me to bring my support person and then I will have one more appointment I believe she said is for pre-surgery information. I was so excited all I heard was approved! It was just sent to the insurance yesterday! Wow!

    You got this! Be like the little engine that could, instead of "I think I can, I think I can!" Say, "I know I can, I know I can! Finally you will be saying, "I did, I did, I did!" 4 days to go!

    Hello 👋🏼
    so my revision surgery was on October 16/19 the night before surgery I weighed around 237lbs... almost a month out I’m 222... total loss of 15lbs... Haven’t lost anything in almost a week and I’m getting discouraged. I was told after 4 weeks I can start eating soft foods... do you guys have any recommendations? I’ve honestly been eating eggs 🥚 after I reached my 3rd week... I know I shouldn’t have but I got so tired of broth and Protein Shakes. I can eat 2 scrambled eggs in one day... I know that’s not much but that’s what I’ve been eating so far. I’m scared to eat mashed potatoes bc I loveeeeeee potatoes!!!! Lol ... any food ideas would be great... I get to see my nut in a week but for now I’ll take you guys suggestions

    thank you!

    Hello Loridee11, yes me too! But I am scheduled for 2 extra nutrition appts guessing in case I had to reschedule. My surgery has been set for December 30th. Now I was approved for lapband removal and had done in July. Not sure if I have to get approved for 2nd surgery for RNY or if it goes with the removal surgery? But, I have a date set for December 30th. I have already given them my FMLA paperwork. Bought trial box of Protein Shakes and received a shaker bottle, will buy required Vitamins and Protein on next visit in Nov., soooo im just waiting and waiting and getting nervous! I do already have my suitcase packed for the event!
