June 2020 surgeries

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 just got the call I'm back in the schedule for tomorrow! I'll get a call after 2 to let me know what time I go in! Yay!!!

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!

I'm only day 2 and the gas pain has kept me up all night. I'm hoping a heat pack or shower shortly will sort some of it out.

This is so great! I was worried for you. I'd be SO mad if my surgery got cancelled or changed after being on the liquid diet for awhile. I'm a week in the pre-op diet as of tomorrow and I'd rage lol Surgery is June 30th. Any other 30th people out wanna connect hit me up.

I truly hope yours ends sooner than mine did. 4 days of this is horrid IMHO,- the spasms on my left side are sincerely hard to handle. I’ve tried so much and nothing fixes the issue. One of my dietitians today suggested lemon juice, she said it work for another patient. Only had concentrated lemon juice and the freeze dried and I’ve tried some of that. No fix as yet 😣 the rest of my healing has been great, that is the crazy part.

Congrats to YOU! How are feeling? Yes, this stall is SO frustrating but as long as we know we are doing what we are supposed to, we will be fine 👍

I had my gallbladder out so I was drained. I am just now getting strength to start walking a little. I am optimistic!

Hope your pain is subsiding. Mine is going well with walking, showers and getting hubby to rub my back when he visits.

It is a bit better. Thank you for asking 😊. I have walked a path into my wood floor and my husband has been massaging, in addition to warm drinks, gas-x, etc. It’s strange that everything you read will tell you that this should be gone in two days when there seems to be so many others for that is it so. Since there are things surgeons can do to help reduce the problem, it does kind of make me wonder if there’s some surgeons who are just lazy and don’t care. I hate to think that way but not sure what else to think 🥴

at least I am having little in the way of other pain or issues. Except being bored silly with liquids 😂
