October 2019 surgery peeps?



Recommended Posts

Hi all, Anyone have an October 2019 surgery date? Mine is 10/28/19 (my surgeon is away for 2 weeks, so I'm at the end of the month). Oh, the holidays are going to be so weird this year (my birthday too, which is 11/19).

I just got the insurance approval today. I am thinking of surgery around October 17 as I have a short trip planned before that. I told the surgeons office I would have a definite date on Monday. Good luck to everyone who has a date and to all future dates.

I am set for 10/1 and also getting RNY. I went to my 4 week (but really more like 3) pre-op appt this morning and start the diet tomorrow. There were 5 other people in my meeting this morning and all of them were getting RNY. Things are starting to get real!

Hello all, I'm hoping for an October date. I'm still waiting on the insurance to approve it. They have till the end of the week to say yes. Which I'll be calling on Wednesday to see. I'm so ready for this to happen it's going on 8 months and I'm done waiting.

I got my EGD done on Friday. She wrote on the report that no findings to prevent bariatric surgery.

However, I have antrum gastritis and she said it looks quite red and sore (no ulcers). I have been taking omeprazole for months but my stomach does burn when I wake up prior to taking that pill.

I’m wondering what will happen when the antrum becomes part of the remnant stomach. Will the omeprazole work? Will that part no longer be irritated since it will no longer be digesting food?

I plan on asking these questions of the doctor in a few weeks but wondering if anyone has a clue about this.

Thanks

Hello, joining y'all. Just found out today I'm approved for Gastric Bypass. It's been a stressful journey where i initially wanted the sleeve but after research choosing the bypass. Yay! They said sometime in October and I'll have a definitive date next week.
