Waiting on surgery date



Recommended Posts

Well I got my approval today, UHC took a little less than a week, got the news today. I am really excited but I am really kind of freaking right now, just waiting on the surgery date, I have to have my $250.00 program fees paid before I can get a surgery date, that will be done Friday, then they will call me with a date, and the blood work appointment and schedule the EGD. Now I am getting scared. Any advice would be appreciated. I have already taken several deep breaths, lol.

Yeah, I had a net gain during my 3 month NUT visits. My husband had a heart attack and triple bypass at age 37. So not to make excuses, but I had a lot going on and gained 4 pounds over where I started. Ugh. But I'm appealing in hopes they have a heart and will see I'm more focused and ready for this now more than ever. :)

I am excited for you! I just did my last appointment at KC Bariactric yesterday. They are going to submit my stuff to UHC and as soon as they approve it I will get my three appointments too! I am so stinking excited I have a hard time going to sleep and a hard time concentrating at work during the day!! Who knows maybe we will be about the same time getting our surgeries.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
