I’m starting to get excited and nervous, first appointment today. I scheduled all the other appointments with the required drs. If all goes well will be having surgery end of February beginning of March. I am looking forward to be able to go down the stairs without my knees or back aching.

It will go faster than you think.
I started my journey in October and I can't believe that I am scheduled to have my surgery on the 29th.

I am looking forward to the same thing as you.....strengthening my back and legs enough where they do not hurt.

So have you guys had your first appointments by now? If so, do you like your doctors, do you think you will be able to work with them? Does everybody have to fulfill the 6 months of preparation orvarevsone of you on a faster track?

I only have to do 3-month supervised diet and I saw my doctor on 1/10/2019 for the first time. My insurance doesn't have any waiting period but the doctor I picked has the 3 month supervised diet. I do like this facility due to they have everything in-house, psych, dietitian, cardio and they have a lifelong program that stands by you before and after surgery. I should be able to have surgery in April so fingers crossed...

So far I really like the surgeon very down to earth and everyone at his office has been wonderful, I am going tomorrow to meet with the dietician and then they will submit for approval. So hopefully I will find out a date soon after.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
