Corona delaying weight loss surgery dates? Anyone?

Lucky you. Must be nice! Unfortunately for all of us we are in the middle of areas that have a Major out break. May be I took your post the wrong way Sabs211 but it’s coming off like you are bragging about it. I know I maybe a bit touchy right now but it kinda feels that way. But good for you!

Not bragging at all. I'm quite surprised mine went ahead actually.

Hey where are you located? I’m still scheduled to undergo gastric bypass on April 27th, but I’m in TN where things haven’t gotten really bad yet. Congratulations on your surgery, I’m so anxious and worried about being postponed, especially after starting the dreaded liver shrink diet.

I'm in the UK.

If it was postponed I'd imagine they would have already told you :)

good luck! It's the best thing I've ever done 🤗

I noticed your says mini-bypass. My surgeon mentioned the same thing for me if my EGD shows I can't do a sleeve due to a hernia. Can you tell me how a "mini" differs from "standard bypass? Thanks!

PS: I'm still delayed in the Midwest. Was suppose to have an EGD on April 8th. Nurse said "Maybe first week in May". Will get my date after EGD. Was told many whose dates were canceled will go before me.

I’m in NC and they called me yesterday and said I would probably be scheduled for June, they have been told the OR will be opening May 26th. I can’t wait to get this journey started, I’ve been through all the hoops and my insurance approved right after the lockdown in March.

Oh I'm glad to hear this. I'm in NC also, and they called me at the end of March to tell me my April 14 surgery was postponed. If I can get it done in June or July I'll be SO happy.

I’ve been rescheduled to May 15th. Not sure if that date will stick, but I’m more hopeful this time.

Hello everyone!! I just joined a few minutes ago, although I definitely should be asleep lol. I am in Virginia. I was given a date for vsg for April 20th on March 11th. They called me 2 days before telling me I'm cancelled until further notice! Everything was a go! Approved and ready, and now nothing. I know safety should come first, but man I am eating things I know I shouldn't, and sometimes my sweet tooth is crazy!! Part of me is so upset that I didn't start the process a month or two earlier like I had wanted. Kept telling myself that I could lose the weight without the surgery, and people around me were negative and had me afraid to do this. Always trust yourself and yout own instinct! I could've had this surgery around January had I went with how I felt. Lesson learned. Hope you all are well and safe! We are literally in this together! I am here to talk anytime 😊

I called my bariatric team after being canceled for almost TWO months and I’m able to continue in the program using Zoom. All the group classes were moved online and I’m doing all my nutrition classes at home. They told me not to call and to wait until further notice but I called and I’m back doing my steps. Just a heads up, if anyone is still waiting for info maybe give them a call now. Good luck! I’m so ready!

Well they canceled my surgery again! My new date for the third time is July 7th. I feel sooo deflated and disappointed and I feel like I just keep getting the rug pulled out from under me. I am really tired of this I am tired of being on lock down . I was at my local hospital to day for a upper GI and it was quite and dead. I feel like maybe we are being lied to and it’s not as bad as they say. I don’t know I guess I’m just tired of this . I’m ready for freedom this whole process should have been three months n now it’s going to be nine months. Very disappointing it feels like it’s never going to happen
