Hi there I'm from Wisconsin and I have Dr Garza too. So happy I found you! Can you talk today? I see you having your surgery tomorrow! I'm having June on 9/8.

. I love Dr Garza and his staff. I am so happy with my progress. 100 lbs since surgery. I've followed the eating plan and walk 2 miles 5 days a week I'm around if you want to talk.
that's great. Wow 100 lbs since your surgery? When was you surgery? You had the sleeve?

Dr garza and his staff are amazing! The nursing staff is fantastic, I couldn't have asked for better care from the morning of surgery to discharge. The rooms were nice and I would have loved to have been able to check out the shower, it has a rain drop head in it :) if you have any questions about his staff or him or hospital stay let me know!! I just got to go home yesterday :) new tummy and all!!

I am pre-op, working with UW Hospital (Madison). I live in Columbus, WI. Have my initial appointments with the surgeon, dietician, and psych testing on July 12th (and follow up with psych on July 18th).

My surgeon is Dr. Greenberg.

They said there really aren't any restrictions with my insurance...so I am wondering how long the pre-op process is.

@@iMav, I'm guessing about 3-4 months for the process. I had Dr. Greenberg as well and had my surgery at UW Hospital since The American Center wasn't open yet. You have to take a series of classes that help prepare you in addition to possibly having additional "readiness" visits with RD, etc.

How did you guys find anyone that will cover weight loss surgery in WI? I need and want surgery but can't afford to pay on my own. Any helpful suggestions welcome :)

Madison here. Had my pre-op with Dr Gerren plus first meeting at UW American Center with psychologist & nutritionist. They estimate a March or April surgery—getting an roux-n-y. Feels like it’s coming fast and that it’s far off. Walking 30 minutes a day and chewing every bite 30 times, that’s my mantra. 🥴🤠

      A week and a day since surgery. Last night was the first night I got actually sleep, clocking in 7 hours. Oddly enough it's left me tired all day, but I didn't nap.
      2 days ago my gas pains subsided (woohoo!)
      I have aches and pains and of course sharp little pains around all the incisions (6 + 1 where the drain was), and I can't take the tylenol with codeine because it makes me feel like I have vertigo.
      I have started the countdown mentally to my soft food stage starting on Monday. Looking forward to that, can't wait to see if eggs and cheese will still be my friends.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.
