FINALLY!!!



Cross your fingers for me!




Had a revision date on 3/18 that was cancelled/postponed on 3/16, then moved to 4/29, which was cancelled/postponed on 3/29, received the phone call today that emergency surgeries, elective, my surgeon was informed he has 2 dates in May he can perform ... So I am scheduled for 5/27, hopefully the Governor won't change things in my state - New York.

I have to start my 2 week liquid tomorrow, eeeeew and eeeeek! didn't expect this at all..




I'm being revised from Sleeve in 2015 to bypass now. I have been suffering horrendous heartburn and vomitting for a year now - was fine in the beginning, day by day, it's worse and worse - had to double up on my medicine - Protonix - have had so many tests it's ridiculous. I can't take much more - also having an umbilical hernia done too while I'm under ...I don't know what to expect... I hope this works and gets rid of the heartburn ... something has to give!!! I hope they don't cancel on me again... esp after doing another liquid diet.




I hope I remember what my liquid diet should be ..




Anyone been sleeve to bypass - how did you find it?




:) thanks!!!




Hope all is well with everyone!


Wow! I am so happy and excited for you. I wish you the very best. I think this will work great and relieve your pain. Fingers crossed. Keep us updated so we know how you are doing. 🍀🍀

Hi Cia2020! I wondered what happened to my surgery twin! Sorry about your postponed surgery. Mine was too rescheduled. I went in for my pre-admit. I asked the nurse had the hospital started rescheduling "elective" surgeries yet? She said no. I was hoping to scape by since my hospital I work for was shutting down on 4/1. Nope 10 minutes after I arrived home, I got the call. It's been rescheduled 2x. Finally my new date is May 21. Just fyi..we all maybe subject to Corona testing. I have to get mine 48 hours before surgery. I start my liquid diet tomorrow. All the best everyone!

Yay! Awesome for you, you're rescheduled for a week ahead of me, and only have to do a week of a diet? I wanna have your program, lol.

I have to get COVID tested too.

I had the antibody test done and I’m negative. My daughter was fully positive for the antibodies. She must have had it and been non symptomatic

Don't dismay because my surgery has just been confirmed for the month of June and it was only delayed for a month. Best wishes to all!

My surgery was scheduled for May 18th and yesterday an hour before my preop appointment they called and canceled my surgery. I was very frustrated and upset. I just received a call and they rescheduled me for July 22nd. I'm really hoping this date sticks. I am happy for everyone that has received their new dates and are able to get their surgeries now.

@Andrews2018 yesterday they said that due to next week being the peak of the virus in California the Hospital is not allowing surgeries (unless it is an emergency) to make sure they have enough PPE. When I received the call today to reschedule for July they stated that my Doctor has not performed any surgeries in two months. I am just a bit frustrated they didn't relay any of this information sooner and literally called an hour before my preop. Well at least now I have two more months to better prepare myself.

@Andrews2018 to answer your question I live in Fresno where the population is about 800-900K and we have 984 confirmed cases. We are definitely not getting worse around here. I know they are just being cautious.

I’m in NY. they are opening slowly for electives as emergencies. My surgeon didn’t perform anything either... and he is only doing two day this month. I got lucky as I’m an emergency due to be revised and my hernia.

@Amanda0911 gotcha. When mine was cancelled for April 20th I felt the same way. I was a little depressed and started eating badly. Then I thought like you did and just better prepared myself, and I was so grateful for that extra time! Started eating better also lol I'm scheduled for June 3rd. Good luck to you!

I’m going in this Friday, the 15th for gastric bypass. I’m super nervous and struggling with this liver shrink diet. Initially scheduled for April 27th, the quarantine made me crave everything ever eaten by man, so it made it harder after I started the liver shrink then got rescheduled. Congratulations to all those with dates, and those without, I’m sure they’ll be getting you in before too long. Our hospitals sent out emails acknowledging that whether it’s elective or not, these surgeries are needed and our health is at risk the longer that they’re put off, so hopefully everyone looks at it that way and gets everyone in. Best of luck!
