Thats awesome!!! Im already getting super nervous! They told me to start the preop diet July 22. Are you starting that the same day as me?


I only have a 1 week diet so I start the 29th. It’s a different diet then I’ve seen on here, it’s full liquids with also 2 servings of either fruit or vegetables a day.

Same! Good luck!

I hear you.

But honestly we will be fine! Constantly reminding ourselves that we have eaten all of these foods before and look where it landed us. After a while on a healthy diet, we lose that zest for the unhealthy ones (so I hear!). Mentally prepare for the first week being arduous and once that scale states to speak to us, we'll get over the angst of comfort food.....and if not, getting slender will be worth it regardless!

We'll rock this!![emoji112][emoji112][emoji112][emoji112][emoji106][emoji106]

I know how it feels! I finished all my requirements before February and it took 4 months for them to send in the correct paper work. The first time was that the psych evaluation didn’t say passed or not pass , we had to wait on that and then they finally got it in after 45 day requirement so I had to resubmit for an appeal because my insurance needed it within 45 days but they took longer, after the appeal I get another letter saying they needed the psych evaluation office notes and finally March 30th is when I got the call from my surgeons office that I got approved and later on that week I received the insurance letter that says approved. I originally got a July 8th day but because of my work schedule being already set till mid August I changed my surgery day to August 19th (sleeve)
So happy for you that it is now scheduled and hopefully wrote in stone. I am glad someone understood my situation and had been there done that.Thanks

Me too! I had the option to have it on August 1st but chose to do it a bit later. Are you going through insurance or paying privately. I’m in Canada, where abouts are you?

I am in Colorado. My insurance wouldn’t approve me so I am self pay. I could have scheduled much sooner, but between giving my job notice of leave and the kids home on summer break, it just makes more sense to wait. I’m glad to find this support group and a surgery twin! My family and close friends who know what I am doing have been very supportive thankfully, but they haven’t been through this themselves.

Of course! Glad I caught your post on here. It for sure is upsetting, every 2 weeks I was calling “has my psych evaluation been sent to you guys (my surgeons office) correctly yet” until they told me yes or I got the call saying they are putting in a appeal. I feel like some times you have to be the one nudging them to get it done correctly to show that you really want it and your ready.... don’t let it get you stressed out! I know for me it did and when I’m stressed I eat whatever and since all that happened and till when I received my approval call, I gained 15lbs and now have 12lbs to lose to get back where I was by August 12 (is when I have my Preop appointment/ next time I see my surgeon)

Hopefully your 1 week goes by fast! They told me to do two weeks of liquid with one small meal per day. I wonder how much we'll be suffering during this liquid stage though.

Although I've heard that losing weight before surgery is important to lower your risk, I just cant help but think about trying to squeeze in my favorite meals before the liquid diet 😂 Im pretty sure Korean BBQ is out the window once I get sleeved...

I was trying to lose than talk to Surgeons nurse she said if you lose under your BMI you won't be approved for surgery. Now my Primary Doctor set me up with a nutritionist, which I have not called back for an appointment. May schedule it for education purposes but I will have a Nurtionist in the Surgeon's office, which will be better informed about bastric diets. I just can't start going on a regular visits and start losing then can't have surgery, than gain all weight back and be where I started. Right now I am depressed and want this to hurry up, I've probably gained because I've been eating a lot. My scales are off so not sure what I weigh. Good luck Bianca you well be there before you know it.

      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

      2. ms.sss

        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.

      3. FluffyChix

        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..."
