Would love to hear about your pre-op class.

I will be sure to give details after my class next week. Are you getting sleeve or rny?

Pre-op diet starts in just a few days (VSG on July 2), I'm so nervous about hunger headaches because it'll be a constant struggle not to put an end to them with a stack of something carby.

I am having sleeve. I also have BCBS so maybe they will call. Are you in the pilot prog? I am also a teacher, but we start back in August unfortunately. What do you teach?

BCBS has a phone app that I was able to check my pre authorization, I was super excited when it went from pending to approved. I'm sure they'll call you soon.

I don't know what the pilot program is.

I teach high school English in IL. What/ where do you teach?

And I now have lost the same in 9 months, am I losing this too soon since you are 2 months further past surgery? See I worry I am doing something wrong. Perhaps too many years of being told I was inept, Inc A-1 ble of doing anything right. My natural self- confidence got eroded away and I find it difficult to regain any self-worth. And although I have no real reason , inwardly,i am still ashamed of myself. I have got to convince ME that ME is still an Okay Person!

I finally got approved Thursday so did my husband. We were holding out hope that with a quick approval we could move up our date but it’s looking like there aren’t any available to keep us on the same day which is a must for us so July 9th it is!

I get the sleeve on July 8th. I am self pay, so hearing about all the delays and timelines you all have to follow is crazy! I also teach, so July is ok. I was hoping for the end of June, but here we are! Good luck to everyone!!

Hi there, I'm also having a VSG done July 1. I'm filled with anticipation and anxiety at the same time. I can't wait to be done with the Cpap. High BP, bad knees and overall feeling like crap..

I'm still waiting for insurance approval but I'm tentatively July 15th... which seems way too close but I've been dying to have it done so I'm excited.
