The wait can seem like an eternity, that's for sure. Congratulations on getting a date. That kind of makes it seem more realistic.

Hi, there. I'm brand new on this site and am scheduled for RNY sometime in February, but I don't have an exact date yet. I see my surgeon again on January 8 and should get a surgery date then.

That sounds great. I had my final decision appointment with my surgeon today. Just went through what to expect and why I wanted bypass over sleeve. Then the scheduler came in and we scheduled the nutritionist appointment and physician assistant appointment February 4th. There I will get final check up and my two week diet for prior to surgery.

My surgeon seemed to be trying to talk me into the sleeve instead of bypass, and asked me to defend my decision to do bypass. I told her that the long-term weight loss seemed better with bypass, and she said she was more concerned with health than weight loss. (Easy for her to say--she is stick-thin.) I then said I felt that bypass had been around longer and was better understood, and that I was also concerned about GERD with sleeve. She seemed satisfied. 🙂

I will see the nutritionist, psychologist and do a pre-op support group on January 8; then I'll get my surgery date.

I have noticed the many people that get the sleeve eventually end up having the bypass at a later time.

I also notice many people who get wls fail period. Old habits die hard sadly. Of course it's never too late unless you're dead!

Weight regain can happen with any type of surgery. Behavior change and the choices you make will be a factor in your outcome. There are many sleevers that have kept the weight off long term.

It is going to be great. I know this journey has been over six months. I know when I get to my pre op diet, I will be saying I wish it was not quite here yet. Just kidding. Iy will be great because I will get to my surgery and by summer I will have started to look like the stud I know I am. 😂

      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
