October 2018 Sleevers



Recommended Posts

How long is everyone’s preop diet? My dr only requires 1 week of liquids for preop. I start that oct 1.
I have to do a 2 week liver shrinking diet for pre-op. Thankful I'm not doing liquid only diet.

Soooooo I posted before and my surgery was supposed to be 10/15. My doctors office called me today and asked if I wanted to push it up to 10/1....UMMMM yes!!!! But I thought I would have time to mentally prepare for the two week pre op liquid diet. Nope....starting tomorrow pray for me!!!!!
I'd love it my doctor's office called and asked if I wanted to move my date up!! The waiting is the worst!

That's a problem November. is going to have. Nobody has started a November 2018 one, I dont,if they plan to,piggyback on 2017's or establish their own÷🌻
I’m a November friend... but it’s a little far out to start a thread. Most of us are just going through the final weigh-in, insurance rig-a-ma-ro... we will be there with all of you super soon!!! 😃

October 15th seems to be a popular date! :778_heartbeat: My date as well. My 2 week pre-op diet starts on Monday October 1st!!! I have already cut back on the caffeine and carbonation so it won't be such a shock. I really like the premiere Protein Shakes, so I bought a case of each flavor from Sam's Club. I also found their clear Protein Drinks to be tasty as well. The flavor is a tad bit strong for my taste, so I have to dilute it. I'm excited to start my pre op diet because that means this is actually happening! It has been almost a year and a half since my first appointment with my bariatric surgeon, and now I'm down to less than a month before surgery!! SOOOOO READDDYYYY!!!!!

mine is October 1st and I am super excited and worried at the same time. I have 1199 insurance and my doctor's office still has no approval on file. I reached out but haven't heard anything yet

I finally got my surgery date yesterday. I am having the gastric bypass on Oct. 15th. After I got the date, I instantly felt sick to my stomach....which I knew it was only my nerves..lol... I am so excited. I started the process last October, got approved for the sleeve August 9th. Then my Dr recommended the bypass due to GERD... Got the approval for the bypass on Sept 17th. I go for a protesting appt and dietician appt on Oct 2nd.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
