Anyone from Wisconsin?

Springbrook here! It is a itty bitty little town between Hayward and Spooner. Where is everyone having their procedures done at? I am planning on having mine done at Aspirus in Wausau, WI.

Hello from Wisconsin. I live in Mayville just west of Madison. I had my RNY last Monday at Aurora in Summit WI. Everything went great and I'm feeling great.

Hi KathyN14. I'm from Racine. I'm just starting this process and looking into doctors. I have been looking at Elmbrook Memorial and Dr. Chaing. Have you heard anything about him? What made you decide on Columbia St. Mary's?

I chose Dr. Regan after researching bariatric drs. He was one of the few that my insurance covered and I saw excellent reviews on him. I was thoroughly happy with everything about my experience from his office staff to the nursing staff at the hospital. I would recommend him to everyone!!

Thanks for the info, Dorian. I'll check him out. I had my first appointment with Dr. Chaing today. I'm not sure he is the right one. What kind of followup did Columbia have? How often do they have groups? I'm hoping to get a lot of support since I don't have any at home.

I'm from Wisconsin, about 45mins north of Milwaukee near West Bend. I'm just starting this process, I've researched many of the Dr's in the area and still not sure who I'll choose. Pretty confident that I want the Sleeve procedure. I would love to hear everyone's thoughts.. So far Dr. Regan with Columbia St. Mary's is my favorite--he's got great bedside manner yet still is on his game. Negative thoughts are welcome as well!

Thanks to you all, I hoping to find other ladies having the surgery to talk to, float ideas off of, and most of all support each other in this process.

Kathy

Hi PIxers,

I am still in the approval stages, but I am going through the Veterans Administration to get it done. I am sorry I wasn't of much help.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
