  1. I finally got a surgery date of Feb. 7th. It has been an interesting journey! I initially went to a doctor to see what could be done for my severe GERD. I have been battling it for about 6 years and I now have a raw throat all of the time. I had a scope done and it showed I also had a hiatal hernia. My doctor referred me to a surgeon. At the meeting with the surgeon he told me that as severe as my hiatal hernia, GERD/reflux is that the best surgery option is gastric bypass. I was a little hesitant but after talking to him for about an hour I understood why this is the best option. After meeting with a nutritionist and getting my psychiatrist eval done I finally got my surgery approved from my insurance. Just wondering if there are any of you getting the same surgery done in Feb.? <a href=''><img src='https://www.bariatricpal.com/tickers/425374-teresa-eschenbaum/bodyweight.png/?ts=1672857590'></a>

    Classical/opera singing straight after surgery

    I have been wondering the same thing. I also sing (not near to your ability) and wondering how long before I can deep enough breath to hit the notes I am used to. My surgeon told me initially that it would be about 3 weeks before I can go back to singing comfortably.

    Pre-Op by a month and I'm scared...

    I think it is completely normal. I have my surgery 2/7 and I am feeling the same way. I know it is for the best however. Hang in there! We will get through this!

    I think I would be worried if we weren't anxious to a certain extent! Good luck!

    Passed psych eval!

    After reading other people's experiences here when they had their psych evaluations, I wasn't nervous at all. I went in and took a test of about 300 questions which took me about a half hour. Then later I met with the doctor and he asked some questions about my lifestyle, work, family, history of anxiety etc. I was in there about 10 minutes and he passed me! On to my last two dietician appointments and hopefully I will get a surgery date for me bypass!
