February bypass buddies?



Recommended Posts

Just got back from my final appointment with the surgeon. Received a date of February 13. They will submit my information to my insurance company, but I have no reason to think I won't be approved.

Looking for any buddies February and/or surgery day twins.

I would love to be your buddy. I am scheduled for bypass Feb 21st. I am 5' 6" and at 312 now. Have an appointment this Friday to see nutritionist. According to their notebook I will be on Protein Shakes for 4 weeks pre-op. I already have approval from my insurance but my surgeon is really booked out hence the Feb 21 date.

I'm also 5'6"... Weight at my final was 265. My heaviest on my home scale was 279.

My surgeon requires a 3 week starch free diet, then 2 days Clear Liquids prior to surgery.

That's great you already have approval! And Feb 21 really isn't that far out!

I go for my pre-op physical and bloodwork next week (1/23).

I'm scheduled for February 8th, we had to go through a 12 week program where we worked on our diet, Right now I'm checking in at 20# loss, it will be about 20 weeks from first appointment to surgery date. Wasn't nervous at all until this week I started having little spikes of being nervous. Good luck to you guys!

Starting my starch free diet... Have been trying to cut the starches before this, but now I'm going at it hardcore.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
