Corona delaying weight loss surgery dates? Anyone?

I believe New York has also canceled Elective Surgery also.

I'm in delaware...schedule and approved for 4/9. My surgery will be at a surgery center. I received a call today from the nurse going over my medical history. I asked of the likeliness that I would be rescheduled (which why I thought she was calling) and she said everything still looks good for 4/9. My state has a stay at home order effective tomorrow.

It's MY time!

Yesssssss.....but if it changes...I'm okay with that. Just want to be safe with the least possible chance of exposure to ANYTHING not just this darn virus. Thanks!

It's MY time!

Several people that were in my preop class were in that situation as they had already been on liquid diet and then just cancelled same day as me. I was supposed to start my in 2 days. It sucks for all of us. I know everything happens for a reason but I was really hoping to have lost some weight and be able to enjoy a little bit of summer this year. At this rate I'm spending another summer too fat to go anywhere all summer.

I was scheduled for April 1st but last week I got a call from my bariatric Center telling me that they’ve moved my date to April 29th it’s pretty bad here in Louisiana so my date most likely will be changed again I’m praying for everyone let’s just keep each other uplifted as we all weather this storm together 💛

I received this today from Michigan Medicine in Ann Arbor. All elective surgeries are postponed until after 4/10/20. Our directors are reassessing this timeline every day since things are changing very quickly.
As of now you are still scheduled for 4/15/20, but if that changes our schedulers will be reaching out to as soon as we can.
I think I'd be more comfortable waiting at this point anyway.

In Washington this is one thing our Governor addressed with an "Emergency Order". All non essential surgeries (that are not emergencies or will not do harm if it were to wait 3 months) have been banned until May 18th unless he extends it later.

Really sucks, my surgery was scheduled for May 13th. We are not selfish to feel disappointed, this is a very emotional topic that will change our lives, we will get through this together. :)

Yes, it does. I was scheduled for Thursday of this week. There's a *small* chance of the order being rescinded if case numbers had a complete turnaround, but odds are surgeries will not be restarted until at least then. So anyone scheduled for before that May 18th will go in order after that. I, unfortunately, may have to postpone mine further until the end of the school year on June 19th anyway.
