December seems so far away! I haven't been approved yet but' date=' I am hoping since my last weigh in is December 5th my insurance will approve it in time for me to be sleeved by the end of December. Anyone one else out there not yet approved and hoping for a December sleeve? I see quite a few people already have their December date. How did your date get scheduled out so far in advance? My Dr. probably won't even try to schedule me until my insurance gives the OK.[/quote']

I am hoping for a December date but am skeptical. I have my fourth NUT next week, the Psych at end of Oct. I did get a letter from Orthopedic stating a recommendation for weight loss surgery. Hoping Insurance approval will be kind and quick!

I guess when December gets closer we will be more excited. To me right now it just feels like the waiting game. When I actually see an approved paper. Then I will believe it's real :wacko: .

I am scheduled for Dec 9th. I'm so excited to finally get this started. I had Lapband Jan 2009. I lost almost 90 pounds then had a slip and revision surgery in May 2010. Then I started having problems again and had it removed in March 2012. I've since gained all the weight back that I previously lost (that has been pretty devastating!). I can't wait to get on the losing track again.

That must have been very disheartening for you, to have so much success and then have the lap band become ineffective. I read so many posts regarding the band and it being so unsuccessful.

Welcome to the December sleeve group! :D

I have started to follow some of the healthier eating patterns that we'll have to adhere to after the surgery. I found an online store that has a great selection. BariatricChoice.com offers a lot of incentives and reward credits. You will receive $20 off your order of $40

or more. It is a secure site . I was able to get $20

off my first purchase of $40 or more. You immediately begin saving and can

get more for your money. You will also receive

$20 in reward credits for anyone you refer that orders from bariatricchoice.com. I ordered the 2lb

canister of Roadside Lemonade Syntrax nectar

Protein drink and the Ostrim Natural

beef sticks, and Chocolite bars and instantly

received my $20 off plus free shipping. My

grand total after the credit was $36.36. For

everything.. Anyone who knows about the

Syntrax

nectar, knows it $36.99 by itself. So I'm

extending a referral to anyone that

wants to order from them. You will not be

disappointed.

Just go to: https://www.bariatri...efer/id/112948/

and use the referral code: 8696996

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
