Anyone from Rhode Island/New England area?



Recommended Posts

I'm just starting my journey (over).... I went through the entire pre-op testing almost 3 years ago but didn't go through with surgery because I learned I was going to lose my health insurance 2 days post op, so I didn't go through with it. Now I'm starting over again with the dietitian, psychological evaluation, gallbladder ultrasound, etc. The gastric sleeve is the procedure I have decided on and just barely made it with the minimum BMI (down 20 pounds from last time)! Since I am new to this app I am looking for support, understanding, and encouragement of those going through similar situations and struggles.

Hi there!

I am from Maine. I started out with a low BMI too. Have been very excited to see the health and physical changes afforded me by the sleeve. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions!

I'm from Johnston and also going with Dr. Pohl for a bypass surgery. I just met with him last week for a consult and spent all this morning scheduling all the pre-op appointments. So many doctor visits in such a short time! Usually I'm a huge procrastinator about those so the fact that I did it right away is an encouraging sign of how much I really want this.

      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.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        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
