I appear to be losing between 2 - 3.5 lbs a week at the moment, which does feel slow in comparison to the first 2 weeks but it is a really a good speed to be losing! The first 6 months is the fastest and then it slows down after that, so trying to make it count! :)

SW - 295

CW - 235

GW - 198

Any April 2019 sleevers on here? I am new to this forum and will have my sleeve on April 1 in Tijuana, Mexico.

I was given my surgery date this morning, Thursday, April 23rd 2020 @ 9:00am

There is a slight chance that all non-essential surgical procedures may by postponed and reschedule later this year due possible larger outbreak estimates for Covid-19, I am hoping I get this over with as scheduled.

I am scheduled for April 13 provided there is no cancellation. A little nervous but excited, too. Hoping it won't be cancelled.

Here is a tip for April Sleevers worried about cancellations.

My surgical coordinator recommended to monitor the number of COVID-19 cases in my immediate area. for Alabama, they have a nice online dashboard that has the states "confirmed" cases broken down by county:

https://alpublichealth.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/6d2771faa9da4a2786a509d82c8cf0f7

Basically if there is a rise in the # of cases in the county you live in, expect non essential surgical procedures to be postponed and rescheduled, common sense statement for sure. At least with this dashboard I can visually see the impact of new cases on my current surgery date of April 23. I live in Baldwin County and as of 3/21 there are only TWO confirmed cases.

I was told this numbers of confirmed cases would need to be in the "hundreds" for changes to non-essential surgery dates so at first glance it looks promising until you see how many people have actually been tested.

I am confident the health departments of all the other states have something similar to this for tracking COVID-19 cases.

I had a May 12, 2020 surgery date and now I just saw the news and they ordered all elective surgery canceled as of 5pm today in New Jersey. I am so disappointed. My life is like Alains Morissette’s song Ironic .

Well, my surgery balloon just burst. I am rescheduled for May 11. I was not surprised it was rescheduled, but still disappointed. Now if my new date does not get postponed!!
