So the reason I choose 8-2-19
Was because I'm an out doors kinda guy.. I love my fishing and taking dips in the lake.. my son turns 2 in April and I want to enjoy his day.. If I do it early I feel like I would get dehydrated with this central California heat and get to miss out on a lot of fishing and swimming with my little oneScreenshot_20190428-164016.thumb.jpeg.a9e3ecb77bf276b317629683e46d1a35.jpeg 20190331_142640.thumb.jpeg.a42e5fefd12ea9836f4b9e37a9f3f46e.jpeg

I don't have exact date but talked to the Surgeon's office today. She said the are booked up until August. I have finished my requirements for my insurance, so it's a waiting game. I figure it will be late August.

Getting my surgery on August 2nd. Still unsure about getting a sleeve or a bypass. I’m 5’2’’ , 235 pounds (bmi of 43) with sleep apnea and acid reflux. My doctor said I could get either surgery, but the sleeve could increase the acid reflux. I’m worried about the dumping with the bypass. I’ve heard that with the sleeve, the surgeon removes the part of the stomach that sends the hungry signals. Whats your opinions?

I would shoot for bypass since you have acid reflex like me. I have gastroparesis and GERD as well and went with bypass. However, my BMI is 36 and I weight only 156 so I only had one option is bypass.

Congratulations, all!

I received my date yesterday of August 14th. I'm a little disappointed it is so far out. The surgeon I am working with has had a smaller OR schedule than most, so I had to wait three weeks from when I had all of my testing done to getting the date, plus it being pushed out.

I will be taking the "extra" weeks as time to start ramping up exercise, squirreling away a few extra PTO hours and really fine tuning my diet and cutting out sugar.

The longer you have , the better your body and you will be prepared. Use all this time wisely.

I didn’t know one could choose. But now I’m 3 1/2 weeks post op there is never a great time to go through it. But I’m pleased that part is behind me.

Tomorrow I have my first bariatric appointment and counseling. A little nervous. Good luck to everyone that has a surgery date set. Hopefully I will have one eventually.

It goes by so quick you will have a date before you even know it.. it took me 10 months because of my other issues.. but I've heard of people get a date within 4-6 months

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
