Good luck! I also had to quit smoking for approval. I quit on 1/1/20 and still have cravings when I get stressed. I'm concerned that after the surgery i may struggle bc i can't smoke, stress eat or drink alchohol. So I've made appts to see two therapist and hopefully one of them will be a fit. I need new coping strategies since I can't take the old ones into my new life with me.

I hope you get approved quickly. Keep us updated! When are they requesting the preapproval?

Congratulations on quiting smoking and making it this far! Waiting is the hardest part! I've completed everything and have been approved. I'm just waiting for the scheduler to call...

I was approved by insurance about 2 weeks ago and my surgeon is booked out so far that I don't get to meet with him until the end of February. It's a pest since I just want to know when my date is going to be, so I can look forward to and plan for it, but I'm trying to use it to up my endurance exercising and dropping a few more pounds.

GREAT JOB in quitting smoking! That was a hard one for me 20+ years ago. My hardest thing so far was having to give up diet soda and caffeine. Even that hasn't been so bad, but I know those 'hit you sideways' cravings do sneak up on you when you're least expecting them.

Best wishes for you!

Must be really hard to have to wait after jumping through all the hoops to get where you are.My surgeon scheduled me just about immediately after submitting insurance 3 weeks out. And my surgery date is next Wednesday 19th, The 2 week liquid diet has not been too bad.The Protein Shakes and smoothies and a little bit that I can eat seem to keep me satisfied.I'm just happy that I'm almost there with the surgery. But I know that's when the hard work begins as well. Best of luck to you. Hope you get scheduled soon

      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.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
