    jaymmee got a reaction from Krimsonbutterflies in Confirmed surgery date!   
    Congratulations!! I have kaiser so I have until October 28th as my last class then I get to do whatever else is required. I’m really hoping for a thanksgiving surgery timeframe, but we’ll see. Who is your surgeon? What’s the preop diet like?

    So I have Kaiser and I have attended the first class of orientation and I’m scheduled to begin the rigorous 12 week class on Aug 5 and ending Oct 28. I meet the guidelines with my co-morbidities. I honestly cannot wait to get the classes finished. I have seen some posts where people don’t do them and others who have. I understand why we need them, I just am beyond ready for this surgery. I’m in excruciating pain daily and I’m extremely exhausted day in day out. I want it all to end and I don’t know if I can wait out the long timeframe. It seems like Dec would be the surgery timeframe based on my reading. How did y’all do it? How did y’all get through these classes? I know the light at the end of the tunnel is faint right now, I’m just anxious at this point and wish it could be the big day already. I’m beyond ready to get my life back from pain. I understand there’s going to be pain from the surgery, however, it’s temporary. I keep telling myself at this point so is all my other pain... Looking forward to a healthier lifestyle!!

    KCGirl - you’re absolutely right! I’ve been learning so much here! I’m meeting my Dr tonight at a class he holds and I start my classes Monday. I’m excited to see what they have to say. I’m just in so much pain I wanted this surgery last week. I know it’s gonna go by fast. I’m going to try to get all my appointments done during the 12 weeks classes and then when they’re done hopefully I can schedule surgery. We’ll see.

    She had her sleeve a year and a half ago, but the acid reflux was doing terrible things to her. She had her revision last week on the 24th and has had a few complications, now she has a picque line and will have a nurse come to her house daily. Her process has actually scared me. The Dr isn't sure if she has some sort of blockage and may need another surgery. Damn







    Sorry to hear that about your friend. I hope she gets to feeling better real quick! And it sounds like her Dr’s all over it. 🤞 🙏

    The more prepared you are for the surgery the better you'll do. Take your time and learn all you can. Not just the nutritional information that the classes offer but people's experiences in this forum and others on Facebook groups and other websites. See the stories of regret, complications, stalls and know it can happen to you. See the success stories and know it can happen to you. Look for patterns in people who have regained and make your game plan. Take this time to become an expert in weight loss surgery.

    Can I ask why your approval situation is different than most? Is it a health condition that is causing it? I only ask because just makes me wonder if I or maybe someone else might have it too, and we can work with the insurance company to help speed things up? If it’s personal I understand too and you don’t have to disclose.

    This is true! Everything does happen for a reason. I hope your surgeon can schedule you when you want. I wish you all the best of luck! How’s your friend doing?

    Krimsonbutterflies... I’m sorry you have to wait. I’m sure it is for the best though. So you can pick your surgeon? They didn’t just assign you one? That’s pretty cool! I wonder if I’ll get to do that too! 😃

    Do y’all have Kaiser for your insurance provider? Or do y’all have a PPO plan?

    GradyCat- Can I ask why you didn’t have to attend the classes? Do you have any serious condition that they’re speeding up the process? I just found out I have a stress fracture in my left foot from my weight.

    jaymmee reacted to Jessviera in Lies to tell people about what surgery I am having   
    I told people i was doing a medically supervised weight loss program. Which is kind of true haha. I basically told them my actual diet but that it was a nutritionist and doctor supervised program, not a surgery. Works on all fronts so far.

    Oh my goodness... I get up 3-4 times per night to pee too!! And I have nights sweats badly lately too. Getting a great nights sleep again is what I’m looking forward too the most about this machine. And the additional bonus that it helps me get approved for my surgery 😉

    I’ve decided to get the machine. I need it. Can’t stand how exhausted I am and not to mention forgetful. My insurance covers 80% so not too much out of pocket. I have the co morbidities for my surgery and AZhiker said it adds to my approval. So I’m getting the machine.
