Looking for people who are likely to get surgery in Spring 2017!



Recommended Posts

I was just approved to start the Stage II Molina Bariatric Surgery Program(Apple Health) last week! (8/11) First NUT appointment is today and I'm already overwhelmed by all the criteria. Lol I'm so nervous because I soooo don't want to screw this opportunity up.

I'm constantly thinking of how many times I've let myself down doing other things. I already know that I won't have the money to afford this in the future, so I better cut the crap right now.. lol Argh! My nerves.. so anxious.. Anyone starting their journey now and looking at Spring 2017 surgery date (If all goes well) ?

I'm Hoping to have surgery this November, but I'm just commenting to say that time will fly! I had 6 months and now I've got one more diet visit, and a class and surgery shortly after. Lol.

I started my insurance required 6 months of NUT appointments in July. I should be all done by December. I'm hoping to have the surgery in early January or February 2017.

Yes, I can't believe I'm (almost) already two months down from when I began the process. It is going to be so fast!

Here's to making the best choice for our health and happiness!

I'll hopefully be having a band to bypass revision in January or February of 2017. Good luck with all of your requirements! The time will fly by.

Are you a teacher/professor? Or working for a school district? Asking bc you said you are off all summer..

You have a bit of time ahead of you as well. Have decided on which of the procedure you want? :)

I'm still on the fence.. one day sleeve another bypass. Smh probably decide once I meet with the surgeon..

I am in my 4th month of my 12 month health education program through my insurance. I have 8 more months to go. UGH! It's went fast so far, but when I look at the time that still needs to go by I get depressed. 12 months is a long wait! I'm hoping for a April or May surgery date. I've already done my stress test, and I have to get a breathing test done for my pulmonologist to see if I have COPD on Sept. 12th. Then I have to do my sleep study on Sept. 19th. On Sept. 21st, I have 3 appts at the surgeons office. First with the Psychologist, then the NUT, then the PA for the clinic/program. I'm not too sure what is supposed to happen after that. I guess I'll find out on the 21st.

BTW, I am 5'6", HW 280 CW 270 GW maybe 145 or so (we'll see).

I'm hoping for spring, but I'm at the very beginning. I have Molina as well and am waiting for the pre-approval just to see the UW.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
