Hi, I'm new here. Just did my psych eval yesterday, got my pcp letter last week, and should finish my preop stuff this month. I hope I can get approved and scheduled before school starts in Aug.

I am in the same situation- hoping to get my surgery scheduled before I have to go back to work in the fall. Are you a teacher?

@TexasGal I heard today from Jessica my case manager/facilitator at OSU. She still needs 30 day electronic documentation that I use my CPap at least 4 hours when I sleep. Then after that it's meet the surgeon and have your surgery. So I will be a JULY firecracker after all.😛

So I'm interested in opinions from you all. I have my last nutrition class this Friday. This is the class where the go into detail about how to eat post-surgery, why it's so important to eat that way, and why its crucial to maintain a proper diet and exercise for life.

My nutritionist suggested that my husband come along because I told her that he is one of my biggest obstacles. He eats like a teenage boy, doesn't care about being healthy, and cares even less about exercising. She felt it would be beneficial for him to hear what is being discussed in the meeting. I absolutely agree with her.

He was actually on board to attend but now can't get the time off from work. I already have all the materials and I've talked to him some about my diet, but he hasn't done nearly the research I have. I do find information is more impactful when it comes from multiple sources so I'm bummed he can't attend.

What do you guys think I should do? Since I have plenty of time before my surgery, I was thinking about calling the center and asking if there is another session coming up that maybe would work better. I definitely want to attend the one tomorrow, but if we could both go again later on that would be best.

I'm really stressing over this because we watch My 600Lb Life and he yells at all the enablers on the show and talks a big game about what they should and shouldn't be doing. But I know him, and I know that when its our turn to be in that situation, he's going to see just how hard it really is to support me the way I need it. lol

I think going to a future appointment with your husband is a great idea. I think it’s a great way to include him. I think I’ll start doing the same thing with my husband

I’m up to the plate this Tuesday, June 5 after starting in October 2017! Nine months! And I still look pregnant! LOL. Did great the first few months with losing weight then we had a cancer scare in the family & I totally blew it. But even though I didn’t lose the weight, surgery still scheduled. My biggest fear is not the surgery but being able to follow the rules afterward. I feel like., if I didn’t lose weight pre op, what really makes me think I can post op? And the only reason I think I can is that I absolutely hate being nauseous & vomiting! Is that a bad reason to think this might actually work for me? Sometimes I think I should be having an operation on my brain instead of my stomach because my obesity has so much more to do with my psyche than my stomach! Everyone says I won’t be hungry anymore but hunger was always the LEAST of the reasons I ate & over ate! Guess I’m more scared than I thought!

Congrats! Didn’t you say your son called it for July?

Hi, I'm expecting to be a late June/early July bypass. My PCP just has to send note from my 6th visit and then wait for approval and a date. I'm having it done by Krikhely st Columbia Presbyterian in NYC.

I think I'm more nervous about the 2 week pre-than the post diet? I have had 2 c-secs and I hear this recovery is easier which is what's reassuring to me. I have a very bumpy couple of weeks ahead as my mom just went into a hospice. Obviously that's horrible but since I haven't told anyone in my family (other than my husband) that I'm having the surgery, I have been worried these events would be much closer together which fortunately I think they will be spaced far enough apart.

I'm very eager for the next stage of my life but also at times I think "Holy crap, under a month left?!"

Good luck to everyone else, looking forward to being in touch with others in a similar schedule :)

I started today. Mcdonalds chicken nuggets never looked so good. 😂

I honestly don't feel too bad, but it's day one!

I can totally relate!! Same exact fears- to a T!! My surgery is July 23 and I’m terrified lately. Getting sick is so horrifying to me!! I know tend to eat badly when I’m lonely or bored. Obviously need that to change!!

      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
