  1. I got my bypass done through Wisconsin Medicaid, and it took about 2 months for final approvement. I had the same fears as you. If all your Drs are onboard, and you've jumped through all the hoops, just keep a positive attitude! You won't be refused unless a Dr found the necessity questionable, and you would know that already. Keep your chin up, attitude positive, and with all of us rooting for you, you got this girl!!!

    November 2022 Surgery Buddies

    Got my gastric bypass on Nov 4. Doing really good, but tire easily. Just started on pureed foods. SO made me chicken with peas & carrots. Looked like baby poop, but tasted delicious! Lost 12 pounds since surgery day. Glad to be able to have my protein shakes again! A good friend of mine who had a bypass done just over a year ago, can't believe I haven't experienced dumping syndrome yet. Keeping my fingers crossed, but very careful with how I am adding food into my diet. Hope all is going well with my early Nov surgery buddies!!

    Looking for a November surgery pal

    Hi! I am having my bypass on 11/4. Very nervous & very excited. Looking forward to a new, healthier life. I am one week into my liquid pre-op diet, and I have to admit, I am struggling. Food that I don't even like is looking real appetizing right now! Lol

    Hi! I'm having my gastric bypass surgery on November 4, if everything falls into place. I am excited, but also very nervous. I am in Wisconsin, a long way away from South Carolina, but sure would enjoy some buddies!

    New Here! Looking for Friends!

    Hi Amanda! My name is Nancy, and I'm new here, too. I'm in West Central Wisconsin. I just had my first meeting with my surgical team coordinator. As far as a date for my bypass, all I know is it will be in October. Definitely excited to be on this weight loss journey with this fantastic group of people!
