My sleevesurgery is 3/6. I am traveling to Las Vegas as a self pay. My insurance does not cover WLS. I am starting the pre-op diet tomorrow. So its starting to get real for me. It's honestly all I think about. Hard to concentrate at work. Super excited though!!

Hi fellow RNYs! My date is March 17th and I was approved in January. I probably could have had it in February, but they couldn't catch up with me. BCBS-Fed.

March 10th for me!

My insurance gave my surgery coordinator the authorization code the same day they faxed my compliance paperwork. Moda Insurance.

FYI, I found in Amazon a Medical Alert card for bariatric patients. It asks Restaurants to allow us to order from a kids menu or lunch menu because of our stomach size. I’m having surgery next week, so it’ll be a while before using it. It lists on Amazon which Restaurants they know will accept it, although others may as well. It’s $5-$10.

My date was 3/11 but I was self pay. However, insurance paid for the hiatal hernia repair.

Regarding the medical card, I had a sleeve in 2013 and have been ordering from kid’s menus ever since. No one has ever questioned it. It’s possible to you may never run in to this problem but I guess it doesn’t hurt to get the card anyway. Just wanted to put that tidbit of info out there.

I also had my surgery on March 11. How are you doing?? I managed to eek by before the pandemic took over. One more day and my surgery would have been cancelled.

      I bought a box (7 servings) of peaches and cream oatmeal (used one) and pumpkin spice pancake mix (none used).  I no longer want them.  The exp dates are 4/2023 and 10/2022, respectively.  I live in Manatee Co, FL.  Will take $10 for all.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.
