Hey guys I know we have a July 2019 topic we can talk to each other on but I thought it might be neat to have a schedule so we know who’s going when and we can check on each other! Comment below with your date & surgery and I’ll edit and add you! We can still keep up on our other topic I’m not trying to hijack. Just making a schedule for us to keep up :)

That sucks. I understand the necessity to be smoke free but it seems that they would have verified that before scheduling surgery. Mine got pushed back because I hadn't been compliant on my CPAP lol.

How long have you been smoke free?

6 months at a minimum. It's up to the insurance companies discretion.

I have been nicotine free since March 1st. I started the process more or less back in January or February. Quitting smoking is extremely difficult. Lol. I wasn't aware of the 6 months of nicotine free until yesterday when the insurance denied my surgery. If I would of known I would have been more mentally prepared. I'm 50/50 on even getting the surgery now. I gave up so much just to get shut down. This is the third time they have had issues. Whether it be the doctor's or the insurance I woul like to think that these people I've been paying and sitting down when on a monthly basis had an understanding of what's going on. I know for a fact they have done the surgery on multiple other people with the same exact insurance as me and should of known prerequisites.

Don't let the setbacks cause you to give up on surgery. I've had numerous setbacks myself and it's been about 15 months since I started this journey...and finally i'm scheduled for July 22nd. I was starting to give up after insurance denied me but somehow I kept going and barring anything happening, i'll be post wls in less than 3 weeks.

My surgeon's office required that I call my insurance company and ask a series of questions regarding my coverage and any requirements before I even met with the surgeon the first time...and we still messed up lol.

Everything happens for a reason and I truly believe that my setbacks were allowing me more time to prepare myself for surgery.

2 day post-op has gone way better than I expected. I'm taking my fluids, walking, and passing gas normally. My pain is well managed and I've had zero regrets. My dr just dropped in to give me discharge info, and my nurse said I should expect to be free to go by lunch. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you for checking in with me.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      3. FluffyChix

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
