I’m in Woodbury. I finished all of my appts today. They will submit for insurance approval now. I’m going for a band revision to bypass.

I’m going to Meadowbrook. Anyone have experience there? They have been very nice so far.

Plan to have the surgery in June due to work and travel until then. Can’t wait!

Yes I had my surgery at Park Nicollet and had all my appts at Meadowbrook. I had Dr. Luther. I had a great experience. I'm about ten minutes from Woodbury.

I live in Hudson Wisconsin. I’m almost done with all my pre-op stuff I will be having my surgery at United by Dr. Svendsen. The staff that I have encountered has been wonderful! Everyone is genuinely happy and rooting for you to succeed.

I have heard great things about your Dr.! Are you having sleeve or bypass? We were just in Hudson last weekend :-)

I’m having mine done at United by Svendsen too!! Small world! I have 2 dietitian appts and the psych visit left. 😊 it’s a bummer Lyndsey left- hope the new dietitian is as good.

I’m having the bypass done. I have 1 dietitian visit left and the psych evaluation left. Who’s doing your psych? I am going to doctor Sidiqqi on floor 4. My last dietitian was with Lyndsey and the lady who is taking her place. She is really nice.

What are both of you having done?

I am seeing Dr. Siddiqui (sp?) too! I see her next week. I’m doing gastric bypass. I think my surgery should be in May.

I received approval from insurance in 2 days!! Dr. Luther will be my surgeon too. I see him on March 26. I won’t be getting the surgery until June but I’m so happy to be over this phase.

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

        I’m new but I wish you luck in getting back on track. Maybe see a nutritionalist first.
