Saw my surgeon again today, submitting my paperwork for bypass surgery to insurance this week, Tentative surgery date pending approval should be mid August!!! After approval I have to get blood work done and attend some kind of pre-surgical class then I get my actual date and start my pre op diet.

I made an appointment for next week with a pyschologist to discuss my relationship with food and hopefully gain insight into my relationship with food, I want this to be successful long term and don't want any emotional surprises,

So excited!

I might have missed another post, but any news yet?

I am curious that so many people are going from Sleeve to bypass. What is the reasoning behind this. Do you not have the option to go straight to the bypass. Can someone Enlightened me. Concerned it’s a just using us patients to make more money for the doctors?

@ShianneB my surgery date is also August 8, 2018. I’m having the bypass. It’s nice to know others that are going through at the same time.

        Welcome! This is a very friendly and supportive site.

        FYI, status updates get a lot fewer responses than threads. So don't feel shunned if you don't get many responses here.

        I live in Kennedale. Where are you having your surgery and which doctor? I'm being unbearably nosy here :P

        I had mine at USMD, Dr. Dyslin.

      2. Zipps

        Haha, you are fine. Thank you for the welcome! I am having my surgery with Dr Matin at Baylor Grapevine. Day is approaching fast, little nervous of course but can't wait.

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        You're not going to believe the difference. It's just so amazing to not be hungry all freakin' day long!

        Best of luck!

        CONGRATS!!!

        Thanks guys!

      So I'm having a really really really crappy day. Crappy month really.  My husbands been off work for 2 months with an injury and I've been picking up all the slack with everything. And while, I'm happy to step up to the plate and do these things, I'm getting worn out, physically and mentally. And we went to the doctor today that just pushed his recovery time out for another 2 months.
      The reason I tell you all this......
      I bought twizzlers from the vending machine... and I've been nibbling on them.....
      So much for a lifestyle change *cry face*
      Its crazy because I haven't thought about food as comfort in a very long time. But today, I broke.

        @GreenTealael

        There are still 2 Twizzlers left sitting in the wrapper... they aren't gone yet. But today the cleaning people come at work, so they will be soon! I think I'll get some satisfaction to have something left to throw away.

      5. Matt Z

        I was just messing around. I don't mind being "one of the girls" LOL
