Had EGD today and I have my surgery date



Recommended Posts

I had my EGD done today and I have a surgery date of March 19th. All paperwork is being sent to HCA Aetna for approval. The time is going to go by really fast, the past three months have flown by. I am really excited. WooHoo!!!!

Are you an HCA employee? I am too, or I was until I sorta retired. I still work PRN. So you have to use an HCA facility, don't you? I started the process while I still was full time but by the time I got through everything I was old enough for Medicare, but I still went where I started, even though it is 5 hours away and I could have gone to one an hour away. But you don't change horses in the middle of the stream, as long as you like those horses!🐎🐎🐎 (I got the horses in the back, horse tack is attached...)

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
