Looking at you’re name I’m wondering if you are from Connecticut. If so, I can tell you that I got an approval quicker than that and so did another friend. Best wishes!

I am in CT (near New Haven). I see your surgery date is soon. Good luck!!

Thank you! Good luck to you too! I’m in Bridgeport. And from what I’ve seen so far from people I know who have gotten approved, it usually takes a week or two. I found out in less than a week! Then I got the approval letter the following week! Hope you’re approval is just as speedy!

Thank you!! And yes I am, I don’t think I could have found a better surgeon. Are you also going with him?

No, I’m using Dr Neil Floch at St V’s. I love him and his staff. My friend used Dr Ghiassi last year and she loved him. He did a great job. She’s very happy! You’re definitely in good hands!

Thank you! And same to you! Being nervous is normal but don’t second guess yourself now. You decided on this for a reason. If you’re still nervous tomorrow ask for something for the nerves. They will accommodate you. You’ve got this 😉

I would love to make some surgery buddies now so we can go through all the pre-op requirements together and stick through surgery and beyond. Anyone else already know their surgery will occur this summer?

My surgery is going to fall in the July or August time frame. Most of this is dependent upon checking all my surgeon's boxes, the rest is dependent upon my financing since I'm self-pay. I'll be getting the sleeve.

I love my surgeon and feel really lucky to have found him. So far the pre-op stuff has gone smoothly, but I am just at the beginning stages. I've scheduled all my evals and classes and attended my first weight loss class last week. I found it to be mildly helpful. It was certainly geared more toward those that hadn't already read through the surgery binder and/or those that had no clue what healthy eating consisted of. I'm hoping future classes focus more on the post-op eating.

My first visit with my PCP about this surgery is next week as that's the soonest I could get in to see her. I'm hoping she'll be supportive as my surgeon knew of her when I told him that's who I see. But if I have to find another PCP so be it.

My first dietician appt is next week and psych eval is the week after that. I only have to get these three meetings out of the way to schedule my surgery. So I'm anxious to get that done!

I'm excited to hear from others along the same timeline as me!

My surgery date is August 13th also!!!! Ahhh I am so excited/nervous/I dont even know bc I have thought about doing this forever and it all happened so fast it does not even seem real. I am also self pay, and have been jumping through pre surgery hoops and just got my official surgery date on Thursday. I am gonna be BROKE after this but know it will be worth it! I really like my surgeon and his group also. I am 31 and unmarried, and it was important to me to get the single incision surgery because my scars do not heal well.

What are you doing pre-op, ect?

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
