I haven't heard yet how long I have to wait with my insurance company. I'm assuming 6 months so probably around December.

Hello Minnesota! Anyone around these days?

I had my RNY last week (October 18, 2016) at mayo Clinic. Surgery went really well and I'm feeling pretty good! I started pureed foods Tuesday and am trying to learn when I'm full and when I'm hungry. It's kind of odd :-) So far I've only tried scrambled eggs and cottage cheese. I haven't ventured too far from that. I'd like to try refried Beans. That sounds kind of good to me.

Love to hear from others and how they are doing. When did you have your surgery, where, what are your challenges, what have your successes been and, of course, how much have you lost along with your height.

I'm 9 weeks post and am doing great! Being nervous is pretty normal. Just get checked in and let the medical staff take care of you. You'll do great, I'm sure! Where are you having your surgery done? All the best! Let us know how you're doing.

Hi I'm in Woodbury! I have BCBS FEP and I believe the preferred Center of Excellence is mayo Clinic. I had started at my primary back in August and they sent a referral to Mayo, but when the center called I was in the midst of my husbands' cancer treatment and felt it was just too much for our family to take on an elective surgery... now that my husband had his RP and is on his road to healing I figured it was time to look back into my own journey. I plan to call Mayo today. I sent an email back on 12/15 and haven't heard from them yet... I just have to go for it. Any insight into the program would be greatly appreciated!
