Hi Im glad I found this site! I got approved... But I don't see the surgeons till the 6th. I've already got a phyc who I've been seeing. Anyone know if I'll have to see her again? Also will the surgeon give me a date? I'm nervous, but I'm tired of this weight and people that I know personally asking me if I'm pregnant. Sigh

Congrats to both of you!!! I have my surgery on the 13th of June. My guess for you babydoll56 is that they will get your surgery scheduled within just a few short weeks of seeing the Dr. Good luck to both of you!!!

Thanks sooooo much guys! I've been praying for this for long. I got a phone call saying I was approved. I haven't told the drs which procedure I would like.... But after researching the sleeve procedure that's what I want. This is a good support forum.

Ok just got from dr appt Has anyone gotten the sleeve with mesh already in. I had my one on one with the dr and he said since I've had 2 hernia repairs he may not be able to do the sleeve. Has anyone experienced this.

I had two hernia repairs and a lapbad removal and my doctor didn't say it was a problem at all

Thanks so much for replying. I thought I would be getting sleeved much faster....especially when the patient advocate told me my surgery was approved ugh!!! I have to have 6 months of paper work from dr stating my weight etc. since I was seeing my dr already for the weight gain she was able to go back to April. Yeah !!!! So I've got July , August , and September. My consult with my nut is in August. I hope maybe they will speed it up lol.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
