Hey everyone,

I got the phone call yesterday that I was approved and I have my surgery date November 21st. I am excited and a little nervous because it is actually happening!

Based on my progress through my insurance requirements, I'm estimating my surgery to be in late November. I don't have an exact date yet. Looking forward to getting this weight off!

what insurance do you have? I completed everything in July and two weeks later I got an approval.

BCBS (Ohio). I have 6 months of dietary visits and I just finished visit #3. I will be done with them in mid-October at which time they will send my information to my insurance for approval. My surgeon estimated a late November or dearly December surgery.

November 7th I was going to have it done in October but my hubby couldn't take a couple days off so I move my date to November. I am counting down. What's your pre diet like and how long you have to do it for.

My surgery date is also November 7th. Was hoping for October but surgeon on vacation last 2 weeks in October. Finally feel like part of the group, and not just an observer.

I'm very hopeful to have a November date. I go in for my labs and EKG tomorrow, then I'll meet with the nurse next week to discuss surgery dates. I started the process 08/02/17 @Kaiser and have been very eager to get things rolling!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
