    Waiting on approval bcbstx

    I'm sorry to hear that your insurance won't cover bariatric surgery. I hope you are able to figure out an alternative. Good Luck

    OMG Yes! Getting in a decent amount of water seems to be such a struggle. Some days I do better than others. I never was any good at drinking just plain water anyway though.

    So done with this stall

    Thank you so much everyone. I watched those videos and I've seen a few of his other videos before he has some solid advice.

    Choosing between surgeries

    I chose the bypass because of the dumping felt like I might need that reminder of I shouldn't be eating that. Haven't had any dumping episodes yet and I'm trying my hardest to avoid any helps that I'm still on pureed foods figure it will get harder as I move to the next stage. My mom had the sleeve she hasn't had any problems so far and it's been a few months.
  5. I honestly had no idea about this 3 week stall until I started reading peoples posts. Can I be among the many to say it is for the birds. I am on week 5 and my scale hasn't moved in a while. I had to put my scale in closet time out until we could be friends again. I'm just going to keep sticking to my diet and try and get in more exercise for a while. Alright I'm done just needed to get that off my chest.

    I’ve always wanted??!! What are yours?

    I've always wanted : To go horseback riding To not worry about weight limits To eat in public without feeling like I'm being judged To shop in any store for clothes To fit comfortably in a booth

    July 2020 Surgery anyone?

    I'm officially post op. The first two days were rough so I ended up staying an extra day at the hospital. Third day and I'm feeling much better. Working on my water intake and lots of naps.

    July 2020 Surgery anyone?

    Well surgery day has finally arrived and I have to be at the hospital at 630 am. I however thought it would be a good idea to work until 430 am. #cuttingitclose I'm hungry, thirsty and tired I probably should have taken the day off. #hindsight20/20 That being said I can't wait for 630 to arrive. 😆 Wish me luck! And good luck to everyone else having surgery today!
  9. My surgeon never gave me a goal weight. I was curious though so I asked my nutritionist what weight I should be in a year and she told me about 178 but that it depends. I think I just needed that goal in mind and hope i surpass it honestly.

    Pain Medication

    I recently had gallbladder surgery in early March and I was never in any extreme pain so I'm hoping its something like that. I used some of the pain meds they gave me after that surgery but never finished them.

  15. I had an appointment with the nutritionist yesterday who let me know that the hospital would no longer be prescribing pain medication after surgeries and that I am responsible for getting liquid Tylenol. I don't know how much pain I'll have after my surgery but Tylenol just doesn't seem like it would do much. I'm kind of worried but at the same time I'm just like I'll worry about it when I get there. Anyone else told they would not be prescribed pain medication after their surgery?
