Hey guys! :)

how long did it take from your 1st appointment to scheduling surgery?

Wishing you all every success in your surgery

I had my consultation On July 29th and got my approval on 8/20. My original surgery date was on 9/8 but I changed it to 9/14. Good Luck

Man my Gastric Bypass liquid diet (2 days in!) has so far been a BEAST of a mental and hunger battle. But I know it must be done to avoid being opened up and sewn back up and had no surgery. I had 120 oz of Water today, 800 calories, and 100 grams of Protein. I heard the first 3 days are the toughest and then it gets easier!

Hello my name is Tara and I’m from Kentucky. I’m having the sleeve done next month. I’m hoping it’s between Sept. 7 and the 14th.

Hey Tara, I'm kerry. Best of luck to you! I'm in Pennsylvania just started the process so I see the weight management next month then they transfer me to a surgeon so im not really familiar with how it all works! But you guys have been great. Good luck with your surgery

If it hadn't been for the lockdown, it would have taken about 3 months. Now I am scheduled for Sept. 2, so 6 months in all. A tip: Try to schedule as many of the tests as you can into as few days as possible. It was a real pain in my butt to go back and forth for the various appointments and tests!

Hey thank you so much for your for the tip!

I have my weight management appointment in sept then they refer me to the surgeon so im not really sure what to expect at any of the appointments!

Wishing you the very best not long now for you

Isn't it just AWFUL?! I am half way through. I think most people are fine after day three, unfortunately, I am still hungry😢 and I have had a constant headache from caffeine withdrawal. I keep thinking about hard boiled eggs and plums. I don't even LIKE eggs! Six more days to go...we can do this!
