That's awesome. I just got my date May 24th. How tall are you and where are you at now? I'm 5'2" 213 and would love to be 130. My surgeon will be Dr. Felix with advanced Bariatrics.

Felix is good. I have no complaints. Let me know what you think. Don't be nervous. Felix's office pretty much make sure you get approved.

That does kinda suck. I think it's a bunch of crap. They call it a program fee to cover the nutritionist and stuff. I thought it was suppose to cover the psychologist too from my understanding but I had to pay for that too.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
