I wish that I wasn't out of pocket, that is what has held me back before is the $10,000. My BMI is about 32 which I know is low. Its more than just the weight loss that I'm hoping to have, its freedom from medicine for diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol. I sure hope that is it money well spent, I keep talking myself in and out of it.

You will be! I was in a similar situation with my BMI and my meds (all the same as you) and I had a lap band put in. I was off almost all my meds - it was amazing. I lost over a hundred pounds and kept it off for years until my band slipped and was removed and then it was all back on and more.

Submitting everything early March after my last nutritionist appt on March 4th, so we'll see! I'm getting really nervous.

Hopefully you will be joining us Marchers - if not, I am sure you will be in early April.

Are you going through the process again for the sleeve or bypass?

Hello everyone I am having gastric bypass surgery on March 17th. I was initially supposed to have the sleeve but due to a small tumor found on my stomach I had to switch to gastric bypass with a tumor resection. Either way I am very excited and nervous. Good luck to everyone!

I hope everything goes well for you. Mine is scheduled March 22. I just got approved by my insurance. Now I have to wait for MA to approve elective surgery again. * fingers crossed *

I am scheduled for March 15th. My sister works for a COVID clinic near where I live and they are expecting another spike in cases around here. I hope they are wrong and my surgery can go as planned!

I just found out I’m only allowed to have 1 visitor the whole time I’m in the hospital, and it has to be the same person the whole time, so I feel bad that some people can’t be there to support me who wanted to be there.

I will be on a liquid diet 2 weeks prior to surgery. I can have popsicles, Jello, fruit and vegetable juice, milk, Protein Drinks, broth, etc.

Hi - I am new to the site. My sleeve surgery is scheduled for March 10th. Anyone else here set for March? I am super anxious but also looking forward to it. I had a lap band in 2009 and a slip in 2014 that required removal. Curious as to what your pre-op diet looks like. I am on partial liquids now and full liquids for two weeks before the surgery.

Nice to meet everyone!

I just found out on Wednesday that I am scheduled for 3/23! I'm really, really excited.

I’m scheduled for March 1st. I had the band in 2010...never really helped. Got it removed last Oct and am finally ready to make this happen. I’ll be starting my liquid diet Monday and be on it for 14 days pre-op
