Progressing towards surgery date

Recommended Posts

I have the following clearances done:

Primary Care Provider

sleep Apnea Doctor

Psych Eval

Now scheduled for:

Pulmonary function


EGD (pending)

Ran into minor snag on EGD. When I called to schedule, I was told I had a $100 unpaid balance from colonoscopy 12 YEARS ago. [emoji33] I always pay my medical bills. GI ASSOCIATES refuses to schedule EGD until I pay a bill from 12 years ago (past statute of limitations by 9 years.) They cannot provide any documentation about this mysterious unpaid balance. Lawyer friend says not to pay because so old and unknown to me all these years. So having to find a different GI group to schedule EGD.

Have 3rd of 4th weigh-in in 1.5 weeks. My weight is just 2 pounds above goal with another month to go on 90-day diet.

Getting close. Been stocking up on boxes of Kroger sugar-free Gelatin, Premier Protein, Multivitamins, Calcium + D3, B12.< /p>

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
