I am still waiting for approval from insurance, but my "tentative" surgery date is 9/29--

It seems so far away! If my insurance comes back fast with approval the scheduler said she could try and bump the surgery up to a sooner date....

Common Highmark BCBS ????????????

@@superslim yes this is my first time, and hopefully my last! I decided on the "gold standard", so I don't know what I would do after this if it didn't work. *shudder* I'm not even going to think about it.

Your going for a bypass right?, this is my 3rd surgery, first was gastric band and achieved goal weight, but after a few years had problems so I went for a revision to a gastric sleeve, felt hunger from start, almost back to starting weight now, so now mini gastric bypass scheduled In October, I wish someone had told me from the beginning, goodluck

Oh no! Sorry to hear that. Yeah, I decided on gastric bypass from the beginning, it was my doctor's recommendation since I have such a high BMI. Good luck on your revision surgery, I'm sending good vibes your way that this is the last time you have to deal with it.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
