December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

December 11th here...counting the days!

Thinking it is good luck.... The 11th day of the 12th month of the 13th year (of the 2000's). Surely that has to be good luck. Excited to be in this group.

Wow! This group has grown! As for my update, my endoscopy was easy and painless. That was the last of my requirements! Next up...submitting paperwork to my insurance company. I am in the home stretch. Surgery is still set for Dec. 18th.

Given the fact that we all will have or probably will have surgery this month, I am curious if anyone in the December group has a flu shot? Have you asked the surgeon? Has it been a topic of conversation? I wonder with the surgery, the post surgery diet and the weakened state if flu is a concern?

I have gotten a flu shot each of the last three years, wondering about this year?

I've already gotten my flu shot as I teach and need all the help I can get lol. What I am wondering about is if I should get a pneumonia shot.

That's a really good question. I have my pre-op appointment in a few weeks and very well may ask if I can go ahead and get it, as I have had the shot for the past several years.

I've never gotten a flu shot and have only ever had the flu once but given the major surgery, I will definitely ask my PCP. Although, I can't really imagine a doc saying no to the flu shot in any instance.

Wow, 53 so far!!

I see my PCP a week from Monday and she will order the EGD (been waiting on new insurance to kick in) and then I can schedule mine!

I'm self pay but I am now wondering if I DO have a hiatal hernia, if I can get the insurance to cover that (which will include the anesthesia and hospital charges) and then pay the difference to the surgeon for the sleeve? I know they charge insurance a lot more than self pay and I would have to pay 20% of the insurance charges, so wondering how much the difference would be!

Have to wait until the EGD to see if I have the hernia and then take it from there.

Hi Nona! Thanks for checking in! So did you have an EGD or upper GI?

I can have either but I'm wanting them to test for H. pylori too, so I think I need an EGD for that. Just wondering if you took yourself or if someone went with you? For some reason I thought they put you out for the EGD?

        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.
