Big Fella Half Way Through On Pre Op Approval



Recommended Posts

I'm in Greenville Nc, my doctor is Wade Nazari of Southern Surgical Bariatrics. I started the process in May, I'm half way through the 90 day food log and exercise plan. I 'm walking 4-6 days a week 3-4 miles at a time. I have sleep apnea, high blood psi, and swollen calves. I have cardio pulomnary(sch for 27th of June). I have one more appointment left with the PA, endoscope, and meeting with doctor. Iam excited about the change and look forward to the challenge

Good luck, Proctor. It seems like the pre-op process is long, but it will be SO worth it when you see those numbers on the scale start dropping. :)

      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.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      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!
