New here and preop for rny



Recommended Posts

Hello! My name is Colleen. I am at the very beginning of my journey to a healthier me! I started on 11/22/16 with my PCP for my 3 month supervised diet for my insurance. I weighed in at 258.8 lbs. My highest weight was 268.0 lbs. I then had my next appointment on 12/22/16 and weighed in at 244.0 lbs. This surprised me for the better.

I will have my next appointment on or after 1/22/17. And I see my surgeon for the first time on 1/30/17.

Of course that can't get here fast enough! I know I will have a ton of preop tests and that is fine. I know with each day I am closer to a healthier me.

I'm just here to introduce myself and get familiar with the site. I need all the help I can get and everyone on here seem awesome and encouraging!

So, any input or advice for a newbie?

Oh, I am from Central Texas and looking for buddies!

Thanks! I look forward to chatting on here!

Welcome and congratulations on taking the steps to get healthy. What a great way to start your new year!

I am an RNYer as well. I am almost 28 months post op. I lost all of my excess weight 152lbs in all. Almost half of me!

I am much healthier than I have been in many many years.

About to go through a second set of plastics in a couple of weeks and I am excited. I will be having a Tummy Tuck, breast lift with augmentation.

I am ready now to get rid of all the loose skin!

Best of luck to you on your upcoming surgery. It was the best thing I have ever done for myself.
