Was supposed to have my surgery 3 days from now on Monday 8/12/19. Found out this morning that my TSH thyroid levels are 4.5 so my insurance is asking for additional info & follow up from my PCP. At 1st I was upset but now I feel a little relieved. My pre-op hasn’t been going as restrictive as I’d like & I can do better. Might as well be as healthy going into this as possible. Rescheduled 1 week for 8/19/19

I'm sorry for the postponement. ((hugs)) But yay on getting this taken care of now!!! Get on your new meds it may help with hunger/insulin resistance and energy to help you really apply yourself on the pre-op liquid phase.

It's always best to have everything in the best shape when you undergo surgery, so be glad your doctor cares enough to make sure your levels are appropriate before putting you under. Good luck.

So sorry it was postponed Chiptress , but you know, it was probably meant to be , and you’ll feel happier that you’ve got more time to do the ore-op , and you don’t have to worry that you could have done better .Mine was postponed because it was too hot to operate safely and I was really disappointed, but then I was pleased they were being cautious . Shows I’m in good hand . Mine is on12 th of August now. I wish you all the very best for the 19th. I’ll be thinking of you !

I’m so sorry your were postponed. I know the feeling. My surgery was originally for the 19th. The next available date would have been sometime in September. But I ended up getting in on cancelled appointment on the 7th. I’m on the bench now. They don’t have scales here in the room. But I feel lighter already. But that be from the non-stop nausea. I’m still in the hospital until the throwing up stops.

I'm glad you are feeling some relief with this .... although would guess it's mixed emotions after the build up and now wait. Hope everything goes well now so you can have your surgery on the new date planned :)

      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..."
