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.
