I'm tentatively now scheduled 8/1! It's been a very long wait, but I think it's exciting my 6-month anniversary will be New Year's Day 2017!

I set to have VSG performed by Dr. Ajay Goyal of the New Jersey Bariatric Center at Robert Wood Johnson on 8/8.

Hoping for August. My last of my 3 pre-op visits is July 8 then paperwork goes to my insurance co. I'm going to be away the first full week of August, which would have likely been when I would have been scheduled. So I'm likely to start my 2 week pre-op diet on August 8 with surgery sometime in the week of August 22. The only pre-op stuff I will have left at that point, other than meeting with my surgeon, will be to have the special nutrition class.

8/8 for me too, Dr Darius Ameri in Winchester, MA.

I saw him for the first time in October and hoped to have surgery by January, but I went through some really stressful stuff a few months back (chaos surrounding purchasing a fixer upper with a lot of unexpected setbacks, family health issues, unexpected layoff and settling into a new job, etc.) and needed to put the surgery prep on hold to take care of myself. I regret that it took me so long to finish all my pre-op appointments because I was approved less than a week after I completed my paperwork! I could've been 6 months out by now.

Oh well - here we go! Onward and upward. :)

Congrats on your upcoming surgery date! I do not have an exact date yet, I "think" it will be Aug 9th or 16th. I see the surgeon next week for a check in so hopefully I will know something more exact soon.

I'm getting closer y'all...I just completed my EGD yesterday, and according to my patient advocate at my doctor's office, the step next on the agenda is to schedule an attentive appointment date...I'm thinking it will be sometime time in mid or late July or even maybe early August. Right now I'm trying to schedule some nutritional counseling with a bariatric nutritionist...Strangely enough, it is not a requirement on my particular insurance policy and I've already been approved for the sleeve procedure; however, it is something that I feel is important and vital for success in this new journey. So, I'm paying out of pocket for this service as my insurance will not cover out patient diet instruction, but I feel that it is so worth it.

It's starting to feel more real now, but I am excited and ready to get this show on the road, LOL! I will say that I am in the Dallas, TX area, and my doctor is Nick Nicholson from the Nicholson Clinic...Is there anyone on here that is from Texas and is familiar with him?

      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.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
