    Pre-op Diet - Happened So Fast!

    Hi! Who is Chicago is doing your surgery? That's where I had mine done :). The sameeee thing happened to me, originally I was scheduled 7/20..well on July 9th they called and asked if I wanted to take a 7/13 opening they had...took it! lol. But yes, I felt as if I had no time to prepare either. Did they give a specific reason on why you can't season things? For me, I seasoned broth because I couldn't stomach it. I'm now 28 days out and feeling good. I'm officially down 20, which makes me even happier! Things do get easier, but there will be moments that you say "wtf did i do" lol, for me that was primarily right after surgery (I hated those gas pains). All will be well though!!

    How long out of you or for Sleevers?

    Hi! I had surgery 7/13 and was scheduled to go back 7/27. My surgeon's office told me that I could go back after a week because I have a sitting job that is also stressful too but I definitely needed that extra week. I actually ended up taking off an additional week just to be safe. Hope this helps!

    Has anyone been on Wellbutrin prior to surgery? If so, what did your surgeon have you do after surgery to get your meds? My doctor has switched my Wellbutrin XL with a 2 doses of a 75mg pill. Problem is, when I crush the pills & no matter how I take them I gag & feel like I want to throw up! Then when it goes down I begin to feel nauseous. This makes it sooo hard to make sure I’m getting my meds & I can feel it affecting me. My surgeons office says I have to crush it, but like I said it’s like I can’t stomach it.

    July 2020 Surgery anyone?

    My surgery is tomorrow guys! 😬😬😬 I won’t lie I’m nervous (especially knowing family won’t be there). The last few days have been filled with nerves and wondering if I’m doing what’s best for me. But! I know this is the best possible decision & I know that I’m going to be so much happier!

    Changing facilities

    hi! i started w/ a provider and finished all necessary requirements. i ended up deciding to switch to a new doctor and he is accepting all of the things I did at the last place. BUT, it depends on the physician you get because one that I was checking out prior to the one i have now was going to require i did everything over again.

    Pre-Op Diet, Are you hanging in there?

    Like only liquid?
  10. Really? I think maybe it’s so strange to me because the doctor I was previously going to was sending me for approval prior to giving me a date

    Pregnancy and weight loss/gain

    Not me personally, but my sister did. She was actually only about 4 months out from surgery when she got pregnant. She just stopped concentrating on gaining or losing & concentrated on trying to eat good things for baby. If you have questions let me know I can ask her! She also looks amazing lol

    congrats! I’m waiting for my doctor to call me w/ a date and then they’re submitting me. my insurance doesn’t require much so I think I’ll be good but it’s still nerve wrecking! hopefully we’ll be June or July surgery buddies 💃🏽
