Shawnak911 a lot of people insurance don't cover wls...These people pay out of pocket so you figure 15-20 grand verses 5/6 grand....my sister n law paid 18,000 total. She pulled money from her 401k.

6 years out! Wow. How are you doing, maintaining ?

Still at my low weight (give or take a couple pounds). Surgery and losing the weight was the easy part. I also put my time in tracking and measuring every bite, learning all I could about nutrition, attended local support groups, and saw a therapist for 3 years. These are my key to long term success.

Yes, I had my sleeve on November 18, 2016 with Dr. Illan. I recommend going through BariatricPal Team MX via Bill Yanez. The hospital is top notch, clean, the nurses are caring and efficient. The sweet vallets are there for you 24 hours a day in shifts to get whatever you need. The hotel is upscale and I felt safe at all times. What is promised is delivered. Best decision I have ever made and best care I have ever received.

I second everything mama just said. That was my experience to a "t" as well.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
