Hello All,

I should be the 1st or 2nd week of September. My surgeon's office called me today to let me know that my insurance approved my revision from lapband to RNY. I go in next week for my "results visit," basically just going over pre and post op instructions and getting my official date. Incredibly, even in my excitement/relief, I managed to remember to ask my case manager how far out the surgeon is booked for surgery since he only operates twice a week. She said that they just booked the last two spots for August, so she would mention to the doc to hold me a spot for the 1st week of September. Fingers crossed for September 6th. Happy to be on the train with everyone.

I was scheduled for July and got told to wait for September (61extra days lol) I have been counting everyday and it still is flying by. Only 38 more left! Keep your head up Mikeyy.

I change mine to Oct 8. My other Doctor recommended it. So you can tell me how it goes, so I will be prepared for my sleeve.

      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 inΒ 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 herΒ i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you?Β or is it just me) Β 
      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.

        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..."
