When did you start this process if I may ask? I have my first appt with the surgeon on Friday and am curious about how long it takes to get to surgery.

I'm not sure if your asking me but I have had to do my 6 month doctor supervised diet. I'm in month 5 of the 6. I met with my surgeon recently to go over everything and set all of my appointments (psych, dietitian, etc). He stated I would have surgery at the end of August or beginning September. I'm sooo READY! How about you? Where are you in the process?

I saw surgeon in March did all my test and psych saw dietitian and 6 support group meetings as well Aug will be my 6 months. It all depends on Insurance and what the require. It goes pretty fast after you have done all the requirements and it's approved also sometimes the doctor wants you to lose a certain amount before surgery mine didn't give me a number just put me on a pre op diet.

Mine is scheduled for Sept 9 - exactly 2 weeks from today!

I don't have to do a liquid diet prep, just supposed to be continuing to eat well up until surgery. However, I've been having a few food funerals :(

I can't have mine until Oct 5th now I have my pre op class Sept 22nd I was told not to lose anymore weight until I have surgery. I have been having food funerals as well and still not gained any weight iv cut back on Protein until I have surgery also. I have gave my self a few cheat days and I know it's not the best thing but iv not gone to crazy and my weight has stayed the same as long as I stay active I think I'll be okay.

@@emiko_oz I am Sept. 11 as well!

My Dr. only requires 5 days pre-op liquid diet, but I have decided I am going to start 10 days before, so I am starting it next Tuesday. I can't wait for the surgery (that sounds crazy, right?).

I don't have to do the five day liquid diet. I only have to do it one day. My doctor just requires me to do a pre op class 2 weeks before surgery. Iv been told not to lose any more weight so anything more then a day would be too much for me.

@@emiko_oz I bet as a self-pay things are going to move really fast for you. No insurance rigamarole to worry about, no insurance authorization, etc. Great decision, I am sure you will be very happy. I was not sure my insurance would pay for it, but if they didn't I had already decided I would self-pay, because the health benefits are so important.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
