I just got notified yesterday of my approval (wow that was a long process as my insurance required 6 months of nutrition visits first) and my surgery date for sleeve surgery is August 27th!
Best of luck MariaC6. Make sure to keep in mind that all changes including eating habits need to be permanent lifetime changed. Saying this since I failed with my sleeve and now going into Bypass.

Hi PerezL84. I am scheduled for the Gastric bypass. The pre op is tough. Been hungry and tired but hoping that passes, just day 3.
Hi Shell4451... I am starting mine this week. It will be a revision surgery from sleeve to Bypass but I am more concern on the recovery since it will be my second bariatric surgery.

Awesome I will have to look into the Isopure because I really don’t like power Protein either. My Current weight is 306lbs, Height 5’3 BMI is 54. My goal weight is 160lbs. Why are you choosing bypass now above the sleeve?
Xfatboy007... I had the sleeve done in 2013. Lost about 70 lbs from 280 down to 210. However, my stomach pouch dialted causing me to eat more....as a matter of fat I was able to eat the same portions prior to the surgery. Now giving myself a second chance and based on my doctors advice with the bypass I should be able to reach my goal of 190 and maintain it along with my lifestyle changes and a good workout plan.

I’m scheduled for a RNY on Aug 11th assuming my insurance approves. Anyone else have Cigna insurance and know how long your approval took?
I’m trying not to get too excited since it’s not insurance approved yet.

@PerezL84 good luck to you! And yes, mindset is important. I’ve decided no food funerals. I will start my 2 week liquid diet August 13th and until then, I will eat what I normally eat but I’m making a conscious effort to eat less/smaller portions. And my liquid diet is truly liquid- shakes, Bone Broth and Jello limited to 800 calories a day. I’ve also purchased exercise equipment that will be delivered to my house about 3 weeks post op and I hope to start using at about 4 weeks post op. I started looking into WLS in January and am so thrilled that I got approved (I have BCBS of Michigan).

August 5 (kinda nervous being so close)

I'm having the sleeve done on the 5th too! This may sound crazy but I'm actually not nervous at all. I've been actively working towards this for 11 months (6 month long insurance-mandated program and then COVID) so I'm just glad it's finally happening!
