Hi! I’m new to this app and I’ve just started getting my ducks in a row. I’ve turned in my 6 month diet form to my insurance, UHC, (my dr backdated as she knew I’ve been dieting forever now haha. I have my physc evaluation this Wednesday and my surgeon consultation with dr. Cahill on March 18th. I’m wondering if anyone has had experience with him? I’m so anxious to find out how long the wait will be after our first consultation.

Please forgive any typos.. this is black on black for me so I’m typing blindly 😅

Hello! Dr. Cahill is my surgeon and my insurance didn't have a 6 month waiting period. But it took me about 6 months to get my surgery date because I had to get in for the Cardiologist and Psych evals, etc. My Surgery date is Feb. 25, 2020 and I'm very nervous. I live a. Hour away from Dyer but I chose Cahill bcuz he's very experienced and I have family that he did WLS on.

Really still took 6 months? I was hoping it wouldn’t be as long since I had that knocked out. Im working on my patience lol.

So exciting for you tho!! I’m about 40 minutes from Dyer. I had to go to him because my insurance wanted me to go to a Bariatric center of excellence. My first appointment is March 18 with him. I have my psych evaluation this Wednesday!

@thick_thighs73 were u mostly waiting on getting in for your other appointments then or was there a wait for him?
I'm so sorry. I didn't realize U replied. I need to see if there are notifications for this app. Yes most of the waiting for me was being able to get appts with The other Doctors.

I'm soooo nervous. My surgery is on Tuesday. I need to stày off some of the FB groups bcuz some of the horrible complication stories are making me 2nd guess my decision.

      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.
