    Pregnant!

    Thanks. I'm going to call my surgeon today. I guess I'll be back in a year or so. Good luck everyone! Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  2. 2 weeks before my sleeve and I'm pregnant. Birth control fail. I cannot believe my life right now. All that work and testing for nothing. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Diverticulitis

    Dr says it shouldn't effect my surgery and I can continue with my pre-admission testing tomorrow, as scheduled. Thank goodness! Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  6. I was diagnosed with diverticulitis on Friday. It was awful. I'm on antibiotics and feel a lot better now. I have pre-admission testing on Tuesday and a VSG scheduled for January 22nd. I plan to call my Dr tomorrow but will this affect my pre-admission testing? or worse yet, my surgery date? Ugh. After all the steps to get to this point, it will suck off things are postponed.

    January 2021 anyone?

    Yes! I'm tentatively scheduled for January 22, 2021. I'm 5'5" with a starting weight of 240-243 lbs (fluctuates) at 36 y/o. I'm excited and nervous but mostly excited! Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Skipping Purees

    Thanks. I guess pudding, yogurt and applesauce is a snack but duh, it's also a puree and soup or shakes sounds like a good idea to substitute instead of meat for protein. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    EGD...

    So I had a surgery date scheduled on the 1st day I seen the Dr for bariatric surgery (scheduled about 3 months later). I was giving a list of tests and specialists I had to see before a certain date to receive insurance approval. My EGD is in about 2 weeks. My surgery is January 22, 2021.

  10. Hi all. I'm new here and still in the pre-op stage. With that said, has anyone skipped the puree stage? The idea of eating pureed foods makes my stomach turn. I have a major aversion to certain foods textures, I don't like cottage cheese or mashed potatoes for that reason and highly doubt I'm going to blend up some chicken and veggies and be ok with it. I'm almost certain I will gag and they will come back up. I'm wondering if I can do the liquid stage a bit longer. I know this is a question for my Dr but until then, does anyone have experience with this? Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  11. I got my surgery date on my very 1st appointment with the surgeon. Granted, I have to complete all of the pre-op testing and be cleared for surgery so there is always a possibility it can change. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Hello. New Here.

    Thank you. I'm the queen of research. I research everything! I've been on the fence about surgery for about 2 years now. I actually had my initial consultation in February 2019 but chickened out so I've done tons of research prior to my 1st appointment but even so I'm sure there is always room to learn more. Hence the reason I joined this board. I look forward to the journey.
  13. Honestly, I'm not a Dr. and I'm in the pre-op stage but it sounds like severe anxiety to me.
  14. Hello everyone. I'm new here. I had my 1st appointment yesterday with the Dr and a surgery date of January 22nd, assuming all goes well with pre-operative testing. 36 y/o mom of 2. Current weight = 243, Goal weight = 150 and I'm 5'5. I'm excited but extremely nervous as well. I've been reading a lot and look forward to being a part of the group. Any and all advice is appreciated.
