I have been working so hard for a year getting prepared for my surgery now it was scheduled for tomorrow March 25. It was cancelled last week and I am very bummed out about it. I completely understand I am not the only one on this same situation. I am just anxious with out knowing when the surgery can be rescheduled for. I am doing my surgery at Loyola Hospital and they do not have dates to reschedule selective surgeries yet. :(

Oh, I'm so sorry you have been caught up in all of this turmoil, too! Hopefully it won't be for too long. I'm hoping for the best, but preparing for my April 13 surgery to be postponed. I'm just going to keep on my journey though, practicing all the skills that I will need after surgery and getting my head totally wrapped around the changes that are going to be made.

Come out to the forums when you feel discouraged or low. There are lots of folks going through this same issue right now and everyone is pulling together to make it bearable.

Wishing you all the very best!

After putting in all the work. I received my approval to have surgery. Due to Covid-19, the hospital has postponed non emergency surgeries. I am hoping I can get a date in mid-may to early June

Yep, I received the bad news today, Saturday 4/4/2020.

My April 23rd surgery date has been canceled and will be reschedule some time later this year. It was expected given the growing numbers of cases in the US. However, I was hoping that in Alabama where the state wide cases are still under 2,000 that a late April date would be safe, guess not.

When I asked about a future date I was told that none of the area hospitals are taking and surgery rescheduling and that any updates are at least 30 to 45 days away.

And to make things worse, the "unemployment" subject is now beginning to enter discussions at work. I am self-pay and have decided - IF - my income flow is interrupted, I WILL NOT request a refund, I am committed to get this surgery no matter what happens on the financial front.

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
