    Preparing for Gastric Bypass

    Oh gosh! Mine is more focused on getting me prepared and mentally ready for the surgery. Of course mine wasn't assigned to me. I found them through my insurance. My niece got the sleeve and she has body dysmorphia ad well. She's doing great! Lost over 100 lbs. She looks and says she feels so much better. More comfortable in her own skin.

  2. Hello, everyone! I'm new here, but have almost had gastric bypass a little over a year ago. I had pretty much finished the checklist my doc gave me: nutrition classes, sleep study, upper gi, 6 months weight tracking. All I had left was a blood panel, the h pylori test, and a psychological evaluation. I suffer from anxiety, depression, and body dysmorphia, so the psychological doc put a temporary hold on the surgery. Unfortunately, COVID hit before I could get re-evaluated. Non essential and non emergency surgeries were put on hold for in my network. Sadly, because it been about a year now, my insurance and doc is making me go through the whole process all over again sans the sleep study. Luckily I was able to schedule my nutrition classes and upper gi for the next few weeks. If all goes well I should be approved a little before midyear. Wish me luck!

    Preparing for Gastric Bypass

    @dal101 thank you! I've been seeing a lmhc and a psychiatrist very regularly. We've made a lot of progress, so I'm hoping this will make the process smoother than last time around. If you ever need to talk, I'm here for you. Sent from my SM-G988U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Preparing for Gastric Bypass

    @BigSue thank you for you kind words and support. I'm definitely in a better place with my mental health. I have so many questions that I plan to ask on here, but wanted to introduce myself first. I'm so excited, nervous, and scared all at once. Most of all I'm ready to make this exponential change in my life. Sent from my SM-G988U using BariatricPal mobile app
