March Surgery Dates



Recommended Posts

I've seen topics where members having surgery in the same month have kinda banded together to offer support and encouragement to one another. I think this is a wonderful idea, and I'd like to see if there's anyone having surgery in March that would like to support one another.

I have a tentative date for the second or third week in March. I have UHC through Georgia Pacific and they use BRS for approvals. I don't expect any delays, nor does my surgeon's office, so she saved me a spot, so to speak, lol.

Tonight I have my psyc eval, and Monday is my information class, I have two more visits, 2/5 and 3/5 of my six month supervised diet, and on March 5th when I leave my PCP's office, I'll take my worksheet to the surgeon and we'll submit to insurance. That's where I'm at!

I'd love to talk with others that are looking at the same time frame as me!! :D

Hi girls... my surgery date is March 11! I am super happy and excited but also getting nervous but I guess it's normal... it is major surgery and a complete change in my life, so I think being nervous is just normal!!! I am meeting the nutritionist on Monday. Good luck to you both!

The next 8 weeks are going to be CRAZY for me. I have a psych eval, pulmonology eval, cardiac eval, nutrition class, pre-admissions testing at the hospital, and my surgical clearance appointment with my PCP. My insurance company is either thorough or they are making SURE I pay as many co-pays as possible to make sure I'm serious!!

Hey all!! I don't have a date as of yet being submitted early next week and based on my insurance it can take 2-4 weeks for approval then there's a few other appointments after approval (w/ surgeon, dietitian & labs) and with that it will more than like carry me into March now I'm nervous!!

Had my surgery class last night! It was very informative. I found out I'll be using a feeding tube (g-tube) the first four weeks to help me get in my fluids and Protein. I'll have a Blake drain for the first two weeks and I have to drink one blue Powerade every day and if I see the blue in the Blake drain then Houston, we have a problem. Anyone else heard of this? I've never seen any thing about a g-tube on here.

No g tube for mine. I have a week of liquid diet after surgery and then I start soft foods. I've never heard of using a g tube. Must be something your surgeon found helpful.

I've never heard of using a feeding tube either. I would ask for more information. How exciting though. I dont have my class until 3/7

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
