First time poster. I have my sleeve scheduled for June 26th. Just finished my 1st week of liquid diet and it’s not been easy. Lost 10lbs, but I’m wanting to eat so bad, but always afraid of the doctor rescheduling due to not enough liver shrinking....

I am sure it happens, but I have never heard of that. Please don’t worry and welcome!

My surgery date is scheduled for the 23rd, or so i thought! I got a call on Thursday that insurance hadn't approved the surgery yet. They postponed me until July 17th. I asked if I could call my insurance company and they said they were the worst to deal with. I told my husband, who works in a school district, and he made a phone call. Long story short, the rep from his school called me and said he got all my records from the Dr's office and faxed them to the insurance company with a request for an expedited approval. Mind you I have been on the liquid diet since Monday 6/15 and my COVID test was scheduled for this morning. I called the rep a few times yesterday and the last time I called, he said it was approved by the insurance! YAY! I called the Dr's office, and the girl in the insurance department wouldn't be back in until Monday 6/22. So I went for my test and I'm still on the liquid diet. Praying when this chick comes in on Monday, she sees the approval and I can still have the surgery on Tuesday, not wait a whole month! I'm down 11 lbs so far...imagine if I stayed on the liquid diet until July 17th! LOL!

I am so nervous...I go back to my PCP tomorrow for clearance. My hemoglobin is low, I am praying she still approves me, as I am also scheduled to restart my Iron infusions. I have heavy periods a few times a year due to my obesity and PCOS. Just my luck, during the quarantine I had a heavy period...I am scheduled for surgery 6/29. My program does not want me to lose any weight. My BMI is lower than 40 (currently 37.9), they fear my insurance will cancel me the day of surgery if I go too low. Weird. I have a 2 day pre-op diet. Currently 257lbs, I did lose a few lbs during quarantine.

sorry yall, just a rant lol

Wow, they actually said to you they worried about insurance cancelling the day of surgery? Seems odd since the auth is over and done by then and they do not usually weight someone that day. I was weighed at pre-op via the hospital (but they didn’t ask me to remove shoes, etc. beforehand). I hate that they scared you that way, but I can definitely understand not wanting to risk it! Good luck 👍🏼

I used stool softeners from day 1, and when it got bad I cheated and got a big ole cup of coffee! lol That cleared me out quick! But It was necessary. I take 2 stool softeners every morning and it mostly helps, still a little hard, but I do what I gotta do and coffee is a life saver.

Two weeks post surgery (tomorrow). No huge issues, some constipation and I had to take some Colace and milk of magnesium.

I am still hardly taking anything in. One Premier Protein drink and about a cup of Soup a day. No weight loss in last 4 days which is annoying, but I know it will start happening again. Still down about 15-16lbs since surgery and 43lbs overall since I started the process.

Had a positive day today after surgery. Woke disorientated and besides being tired and not being able to sleep, I've only had mild gas pain in my chest. Not hungary at all but I am s little nervous to drink too much Water as well. Hope everyone else is going well.

4 days since my sleeve - doing pretty good at getting my Protein in (60g) and decently on Water (64oz is my goal, yesterday only managed 30 but better the day prior).

only real problem is with the surgical gas - it’s worse than with my hysterectomy (which was rough for 2 days). Last night the pain was so bad in my side that I was in tears (i don’t tend toward the dramatic, it honestly feels as if someone was twisting my muscles on my left side). I have taken every possible step - walking lots, gasx, heating pad, etc. Research shows Most clears out by day 3, but I am day 4 and it only changed sides 😩

On the positive side, I am down 6.6 lb 😊. Sending good wishes out to you all!
