Hey you'll - count me in! I'm hoping for a June surgery too. As of today, all of my records are in at the surgeon's office. I have a tentative date scheduled and my paperwork is going to insurance on Monday.

We're going to have to post some strategies for passing by all the GA rib joints, krispy cremes, and fish frys after surgery. :thumbup1:

Sleeved at last on Friday August 20th, 2010 at Emory Johns Creek. 98 lbs down pre surgery after a year of dieting and exercise. I am now ready for Phase II with the sleeve to take of at least another 70lbs by next summer. Paul Macik was my surgeon.

I live in GA and would be interested in a group. I went for my first appointment today with my husband. We are looking at staggering our surgeries to give the other time to recover. If all goes well mine will be in about 3 to 4 months. I may be underestimating the time since I am new to this but only need about 3 months with insurance.

My husband and I and our daughter all had surgery. Mine was May 10, 2010 (Sleeve), So far I have lost 63 lbs. My husband and daughter had their surgery on July 12, 2010 (RNY) So far my husband has lost 45 lbs and our daughter has lost 30 lbs. We all have done very well. Best thing I've ever done, wish I had done it years ago but couldn't muster up the courage. I feel so much better. Before, I could actually feel myself dying. I had come to a cross road in my life and I chose this to live. No regrets.

I went to Midtown Surgical Specialists with Dr. Blaney in Augusta, Ga They also have support groups twice a month at Trinity Hospital for those who need support. It's on the first and third Thursday of the month.

I'm a GA sleever! I was all done up at Ft. Gordon, Augusta, GA. March 16... Summerjade I live in Evans. Hope your surgery went well!

I get so excited when I find a Fort Gordon Sleever....I'm searching for an MTF and Fort Gordon maybe an option for me. Please share with me your experience and your opinions of the program there. Who were your surgeons, is the facility state of the art, do they have a dedicated WLS department? Did you have any complications? Anything you would do differently?

I am in Atlanta and I am hoping to be sleeved in June. All paperwork was submitted to the insurance company yesterday so fingers, toes, and even eyes are crossed hoping that it gets approved.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
