I’m scheduled for 11/10! On my preop diet. Made vegetable broth, chicken broth and Bone Broth. Got a variety of Protein Drinks. sugar free flavors to add to my Water. Switched to Decaf coffee. I’m ready!!

I just saw that you are from NC. I am also gonna be buying some unflavored Protein to make me some protein Jello, and to also add to any broth that I might be able to eat. I wish you the best of luck. Please keep me posted. PS-I wish I knew approx. how long it takes NC medicaid for prior approval for surgery?

I will be at the hospital Nov 6... doing my labs,etc. I’ll walk by and see if you’re up to visitors or at least a friendly wave 👋.

That would be great! I’ll be there with my husband. What have you been doing to get ready?

I am having my lapband removed and laparoscopic bypass surgery on 24 November. I am excited, but also nervous about the removal part of the surgery. I really hope it is a smooth operation.

I feel much better prepared this time around because I have been working with a therapist since February who specialises in emotional eating and uses a mindfulness approach. She has helped me unlock the why and I have had several Aha moments in discovering why I have been an emotional eater since I was a child.

I had my band removed and it was a piece of cake

On Thursday October 22nd, had 2nd Surgeon appointment. The next day the Surgeon's Nurse called with the date of November 4th for my rny! He typically requires 2-weeks liquid diet but said to start Monday when I'm back from camping. Surprised but very excited it's happening so soon! Started my process on November 15th, 2019.

Wishing much success to all!!! 😺

Wonderful, and same to you my friend. Please keep me posted. I'm excited for you.

I’m scheduled for November 23rd. I’m nervous and excited. I’m hoping the surge of Covid doesn’t push it off again. I’ve been on pre-op for one week. Does it get any easier?
