Hi, I havent been able to meet anyone in the area going through the same thing as me. I am 42 years old and having a gastric bypass on 9/14. Whats everyone's else's story?20200808_225425.jpg

Sent from my SM-G975U using BariatricPal mobile app

Lived there for many years (still have family there), but I left 32 years ago. But I just wanted to say hi! To be honest, most of my support has been online (on this and other bariatric forums). My clinic does have a support group (or did before COVID - not sure what's going on NOW), but I haven't been in a long time. I visit internet forums at least once a day, though. It keeps my head in the game...

Hi I'm in NC. I live in Salisbury, it is approximatly 40miles N. of Charlotte. I will be having my surgery in Concord. I am currantly waiting on insurance approval. They said it could take up to 2 weeks, so I'm not sure when my actual surgery date is? I hope all is going good for you. Keep us posted.

I'm in NC. I live in the Winston-Salem area and had surgery in Kernersville. Surgery on Sept. 21st. There's a support group, but they meet in-person and I'm in lockdown. So this is my primary support group.

I know my doctors' main office is in Charlotte. I see Dr. Bauman, at his office in Concord. They have been so wonderful there. I hope things are going good for you. I guess I am most concerned about the first 4 to 6 wks. I think once I get thru those couple of wks I'll feel a little more at ease as fas as complications go. I am just nervous. You know what all we go thru to get to a surgery date, and then now that i am waiting on insurance approval...I'm nervous as can be.

I uses Dr. Barbat, great doctor at Atrium. I love the office, everyone is so great to work with. The only thing I wish they have is the support groups but they are canceled due to covid. I am so excited to meet someone near me.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
