Yes, I’m worried about the same thing too. I have to remind myself that WLS is a strong tool. I’m having RNY and it will correct the hiatal hernia and GERD. The only way to get better is to go through.

Me too. Hiatal hernia and GERD/Barrett's. So it's RNY for me also!

Anybody else getting cold feet?

I was not loosing weight anymore on the pre-op plan because I was thinking about how loosing all this weight is making me go through peri-menopause again. (I had it bad with arthritis aches, sweating, Migraines, and moodiness.). I was thinking that I’m paying and working hard to go through it again.

Then I had an asthma attack and couldn’t sleep for three nights in a row. Finally my epiphany happened and I remembered that the terrible asthma is why I want to be healthy. The pre-op plan reduces inflammation and helps keep asthma away! Peri-menopause is temporarily, I want to see my son grow up. I’m back on track.

What is keeping you on track?

I had spine surgery in March. I’m still getting shooting pain down my leg. I gotta get this wait off my discs!

I have a 1 year old who needs and active mom and a 10 year old who needs a good role model! I’m stoked! August 6th can’t come soon enough!

Preop is going well. It has a definite end date so it’s in sight! One and a bit weeks in, 2 and a bit to go. I am ever so slightly hungry but a drink of Water helps. If that’s not working, I have a bag of carrots on my desk that I munch on. 6 kg down so far

Wow! I've been on my journey since February 2021. I'm so glad I now I have a date. I was denied by my insurance after 5 months of pre-op appointments so I'll be going to Mexico.

I am going to have mine done in Mexico too on Aug 21st. I am super nervous as I am going alone.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
