Newark, DE here! My doctor is Dr. Halbert. My consultation was on 10/11. I have scheduled my all appointments and should be done the middle of November! I would love to meet up!

I have Dr. Halbert too. I live in New Castle.

Have you received your date yet? Curious how far out surgery is scheduled for after getting insurance approval.

My medical clearance appointment is on January 2nd. Hoping for a late January surgery, but that might be too optimistic.

I just wrapped up the life skills class on Thursday (due to the snow the week of Thanksgiving and holidays).

I requested a ‘phantom’ date for surgery for employment purposes. So, I have a date for late January that may change.

My meeting with the nurse practitioner is scheduled for 12/5. I will need to schedule the appointment for the medical clearance but they do not see a problem.

Excited! How about you?

I can’t wait. I would have done it months ago, but my insurance requires 6 months of nutrition classes. All I have left are the 3 life skills classes, one more nutrition class, and the medical clearance.

I’m having bypass, btw.

I am having gastric sleeve surgery! Very informative classes (life skills). The time 6-8 pm stinks 😞 especially after working all day with two toddlers at home.

I know how you feel, I have a 3 year old.

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
