Hello from Peachtree City, GA



Recommended Posts

Hello all I just went to the seminar yesterday with my hubby, and beforehand was convinced I wanted the Lapband, but now I am leaning more toward the bypass. I have Tricare Prime and will be calling my PCP tomorrow to make an appointment so I can get the referral for the bypass. I am hoping it will go smoothly and I can get surgery by the end of the year or beginning of the new year. Looking forward to making new friends and get all the information possible about the bypass.

Initially I wanted the lap band and then worked my way to the sleeve as I learned more about the procedures. Finally I decided that if I'm going to have WLS, I'm going for the gold--the gold standard of bypass, that is. I am very happy now that I chose RNY, especially when I read all the posts from people having a do-over from band or sleeve to bypass. Might as well do this once and get it right the first time! My surgery and recovery to date have been very smooth sailing! Good luck!

Please don't have the band. My surgeon doesn't even do them anymore as they don't work. I'm going for a band to bypass revision on 10/10. I did look at the sleeve but as someone else said, I want the gold package this time. Good luck :-)

But, of course, it's totally your choice and I hope whatever you have goes well. :-)

I've pretty much decided on the bypass. I've read too many posts of people having problems with the band and a lot of band to bypass revisions. I am so excited to begin the process.

I have the choice to get either or but I have decided to go with the Bypass because it is the gold standard and I want to do it right on the first attempt. My insurance covers 100 percent so I am very

pleased about this, now I just have to make it through these last 3 months before I have my surgery.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
