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.

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

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
