Hi Honey g,

I'm scheduled for Feb.24 th. You're the first person I've heard that's scheduled in 2014. Who is your surgeon and which procedure are you having? I'm going with the VSG.

My surgeon is Dr. Leena Khaitan of University Hospitals of Cleveland. I'm getting the VSG. February will be here before we know it. Who's your surgeon?

Honey g,
You are soooo right, Feb will be here in no time. My doctor is Dr H. Kikkalaya, he is out of Memorial Hospital Salem NJ. I found this awesome blog and youtube series called 7 bites it's a Mother-Daughter that have both had the VSG and they wanted to help those that are either thinking about or going to have the VSG with ways to go from liquid to soft to regular foods and how to make it better. the address to check it out

I have found the more I read and research the more questions I keep coming up with, how about you? Is your family being supportive of your journey? I have read that there are pre-op sleevers that are mourning that tommorow is thier last Thanksgiving. I don't feel that way at all. I am looking forward to coming up with a healthier holiday.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving :)

It looks like I'm on task for Feb, no date yet as I just met with surgeon today for the first time and got all the hoops I need to jump through first

My question: do you absolutely have to love your surgeon? I wasn't feeling my surgeon today, should I switch?? Help

These are exciting times ladies. @ rpcamper thanks for the info, I will check it out. Yes, my family is extremely supportive and excited about this. My husband is amazing! I have 4 kids and we are open about everything. They know how unhappy I've been for a long time regarding my weight. They also know this surgery could help resolve my health issues before they become more serious. I too am not mourning "my last" anything. I always say it truly could be "my last" everything if I don't get control of my weight and health. I'm excited about my upcoming new lifestyle and plan on giving it my all! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I don't have a surgery date yet, but I'm shooting for February. Preop tests have all gone well, I just need a 2nd NUT visit and a visit with the pulmonologist. My PCP is going to get a report from all of the doctors I've seen so she can give me the green light for surgery. Then at that point I suppose my surgeon's office submits all of my documentation to my insurance company--hope that process doesn't take too long.

I'm excited and hopefully these last few ekes will fly by! :)

My 6 month medically supervised diet will be complete on January 13th so my surgery should be in February. Insurance approval is supposed to take less than 30 days. I have BCBS of AL. I'm getting VSG. It can't get here soon enough.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
