Welcome Chris,

I am still doing pre-requisites for insurance, Nutritionists done, physic, evaluation done, blood work done, EKG was done, but now they want a stress test, then a Endo scope, and they can submit to insurance.

Shooting for end of April, 3 weeks after planned family vacation.

This has been a roller coaster of emotions and have a ways to go yet, but trudging along.

There is a lot useful practical guy stuff in the "guys room".

*waves* I belong here. There is a Facebook group, one for WLS Men and one for WLS LGBT. If anyone is interested in joining, add me on Facebook and let me know. They are closed groups so may not be able to search them. Www.facebook.com/Richard.godfrey or rgodfrey09@gmail.com should find me

I'm a member of the mens group. Cant find the gay one.

Hi! I'm new to the forum (and gay). I haven't had the sleeve surgery yet, but my surgical date will likely be in early May.

It's nice to know I can come back to this thread for info in the future.

I'm Sean, by the way.

Hi everyone! Out since 1986, post-op one month. I am still dealing with the mental aspects of this surgery. Cravings (that I don't really want to eat) and the craziness of being full after 2 bites. Lots of things to get used to. Glad I found this group!

Hey everyone....I have been a member of bariatric pal for a little while now but I haven't seen the homo section. Glad I found it though! I am about 3 1/2 weeks from my surgery day. Excited but it just got real this past week when I scheduled it. I have been, like I'm sure most of you have been, a lot bigger than I am now and also a lot smaller. It seems like, no matter how hard I've worked, the weight never stays off. That was what made me decide on the gastric sleeve.

Welcome Kyle,

Finally got my stuff submitted to the insurance, last week. I got a little short with the doctors office. They will not do surgery if you smoke! So, I quit on the first, told them right now is not a good time to be making my life difficult, just a tad short tempered.
