Hi everyone! I’m new but I’ve finished all my requirements for Cigna. Now just waiting for approval. I’m 42 years old, mother of 2 girls and 1 grandson, they are my world. I finally made decision to have this surgery. Have lots of health issues. Thyroid cancer, Hypothyroidism,Type 2 diabetes, severe sleep apnea, Are just a few, other than of course my inability to keep the weight off. I’m nervous and excited all at the same time! Anesthesia scares me as I’m allergic to one type of it. Kinda been just watching the posts and reading everyone’s experiences. Anyway super excited that I get to share this with people that understand!

Welcome and lots of luck!! Make sure you talk to your surgeon and anesthesiologist and nurses about the kind of drug you are allergic too!

Welcome! I had my surgery 3 weeks ago today. So far, I have lost 36 pounds! I hope you have an easy time like I did. I had very little pain, just some soreness. I am not feeling hungry- which makes things easier. Goo luck! Keep us updated.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
