  6. btrieger thanks from the encouragement, I prayed about it and realize that I just need to be grateful that I am at least getting a surgery, I know there are alot of ppl who would love to be in my shoes.
  7. MAJOR SETBACK MAYBE... Well I woke up at 5 am this morning to drive from Wichita Falls to Dallas and made it early for my appt , a pre surgical consult with Dr. Jay and sure enough something came up. I thought that I had done everything right. I lost 7 pounds since my TLC nutrition consult, had my approval, and BAM my lab work came back out of range, I am absolutely devastated, we did more labs today to see if maybe I wont have to change the date, but if they are still bad(anemic), then my surgery has to be pushed back. I have waited for this for sooo long. I do realize its for my health, but I can't stop thinking about how 1 lil thing has put a stop to my progress. I cried all the way home. Do you know how hard it is to drive 136 miles with tears in your eyes. Sorry to be such a downer today, but I feel uncertain about my fwd progress. If I get pushed back, I may just take a break, get my lab work in check, and consider gastric bypass (even tho I feel this is the easy way out right now). I know this is bandsters, but has anyone else had RNY. Supposedly here in Wichita Falls we have 1 of the best surgeons for that in the nation. I dont know? I'm just gonna lay down, try not to think about today and pray that I get good news within the week. Thanks for listening. Alicia P.S. My daughter was with me today, and when we got in the car she said "mommy I like u just the way u are, but I know u are hurt about the bad news" and just gave me the biggest hug ever. Thank goodness I did something right...
  8. I too have empire BCBS and submitted for approval on monday and received approval on friday. Good luck to you :thumbup: Band date 3-11-10
  9. I have been approved for surgery on March 11, My question is, Are there things that will make this easier, things that the doctors & nurses don't tell u. Like I know I will need liquid gas x, but really is there anything that you would have liked to have had or at least known about, that would have made your post op better? Thanks in advance.
  10. Wow, thank you so much everyone for your input. I have definately added a few things to my list, (not hubby or car approved yet, lol) I just want things to run smoothly on surgery day, as the days pass, I keep waivering from excited to anxiety. On the upside I have take to the Wii - My fitness coach (name of the game) for some exercise and stress relief and it has help, not sure if I have lost any weight, as I am trying to hold out to get weighed on the day of surgery. Once again any and all tips are welcome:biggrin:
  11. Good luck to you Soy, u will be in my prayers
