My surgery is scheduled for December 19 in Topeka, KS.

My paperwork was faxed on November 15 and it was approved on November 16 according to the letter. I didn't get the letter until the 21st. I am going to have to call them on Monday because it has a start date of 12/25/2012 and my surgery is on the 19th. The Christmas date doesn't make any since.

I am nervous, scared, anxious. At this point, only my sister-in-law and my husband and kids are the only ones that I am telling. I do have family that will be supportive but I have other's that I just don't know and I really don't want to deal with their negative comments until I actually have to.

I'm new here. my surgery is scheduled for december 11. i'm thinking about moving it to the 18 because my kids chorus concerts are both during the week of the 11th. they are my first priority! :)

i'm a little nervous about the recovery time! hoping it doesn't take too long. we are supposed to go on a little day trip on the 28 of dec with my in-laws (i'm not telling them about the surgery). maybe i can just play it off as being tired and not feeling well. maybe someone who's had the surgery can chime in and let me know if i'm nuts thinking i can travel 10 days after surgery!

My date is Dec 17. Does anyone else feel like the surgery might not happen? I went through this before' date=' only to be denied by insurance. Now, im self pay. Not looking forward to monthly payments, but figured Id save a lot of money on groceries and could put that towards the bill..lol..[/quote']

I am the 17th, too.

Hi all,

I'm self pay in Texas. Insurance required 2 comorbities with a BMI under 40 - I have none. I'm tentatively scheduled for scheduled for the 26th in my home town of Denton with Dr. Stewart. My pre-opp appt on the 18th. Any other DFW December sleevers out there? I'm excited, but still worried my old ways will creep back in and sabotage everything. Does anyone else feel this way?

Are there any other self pays out there? What are you doing to prepare since we're not under the same requirements as fellow sleevers with insurance? My Doc doesn't even require a liquid diet in advance.

Just curious. Looking forward to the change.

Im self pay. I think our docs dont require a liquid diet bc our bmi's are low. I'm guessing? I have a 34bmi. I have my preop on dec 4th. I'm excited and nervous and mostly anxious. I guess i wanna hurry and find out if that everything is gonna be okay.

My surgery is scheduled for December 20. My insurance approved me in a week! I have to undergo another sleep study this week (because my first study identified me w severe sleep apnea), also have my Egd scheduled for this Friday, pre op appt. And then surgery. This month will hopefully go by fast!!!

My last doctor's appt is this Tuesday. I still have to do an EKG and see a psychologist before my surgery gets approved. Do you think there's any chance I'll be getting sleeved at the end of December?

      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.
