Any other gay sleevers out there?



Recommended Posts

Thanks guys! I'm getting excited! I qualify for the surgery, but barely. At my last weigh-in I was told to be absolutely sure no to lose anymore weight. If I lose 8 lbs between now and surgery day I will not qualify. The problem is that I still have a 10 day liquid diet to tackle! It scares me because I have always had problems with my weight and been up and down. The sleeve is a tool to help me be healthy and happy and satisfied with myself.

@@kitcamper78 I have been using an electronic cigarette for about 2 years now. When I was told that I had to be 30 days nicotine free before I could be considered for surgery, I immediately dropped the nicotine. I still use the cigarette but it is 0mg of nicotine. I mostly use it because I am addicted to menthol, lol.

Kyle, you are in a tuff spot. The smoking has actually not been too bad, I have gained back the 8 pounds I lost last month, but doing better each day.

On a very happy note, the insurance called yesterday and I have been approved. Just one more paper from the Neurologist, and we can set a date. Hang in there Kyle and everyone !!

I am hanging, waiting. I have the insurance approval, just waiting for one piece of paper from the Neurologist. Then we can actually set the surgery date.

I can see, the sticking with the soft stuff.

@@Tommy Joe I went to Mexico, through a different group. My husband went with me and there was no problems and felt equally treated. Good luck

Hope you are recovering well to day Kyle!

I got my surgery date today! It is scheduled for May 18th. They want me to start on the pre-surgery diet on Monday, when I get back from my work trip. That will make it a month, of that before surgery. Little scared and excited all at the same time.
