Finally got a NEW surgery date 3/22! Surgery twins?



Recommended Posts

I have been attempting to get gastric sleeve surgery since last year. I was approved and due to have it December 14th....I received a call on December 11 stating my surgery was canceled due to the Covid surge here in Los Angeles (after doing EVERYTHING including liquid diet 🥴 and paid for my surgery as well).
I ended up finding a surgeon in Las Vegas who would do it and I WAS scheduled for next week (the 24th) HOWEVER Los Angeles hospitals just open back up so I’m opting to have it here with my team as originally planned! (CRAZINESS)
Surgery date is now March 22nd 2021!! I can’t wait!

SW/CW: 260
GW: 190
I’m 5’9

Good luck! My date is March 17th and I’m so excited/ anxious. Still waiting for final approval from insurance but hopeful.

I'm 03/22 as well. Just found out today, don't think it's sunk in yet. However, I've done well this past month cutting sugar, junk, etc from my life.

I wish you luck. 🙂

Yay for some surgery twins! I’m also on the 22nd of March

can’t believe it’s just over 3 weeks away- I can’t wait for it to be done

I am on the low side for BMI:

hw: 96kg

cw: 93kg

gw: 65kg

height: 161cm

current BMI: 35.9

But I’m incredibly uncomfortable with my weight after gaining over 30kg very rapidly thanks to a medication for depression. I’m hoping to lose enough so that I feel more like “myself” again. The photos below show me before I gained the weight and after. Hopefully I get back to looking and feeling much more like I was in that “before” picture!
