Not Omaha, but within an hour! My surgery will be at UNMC.

When is your surgery?

No date yet, but finishing up my 3 months worth of dietitian appointments and follow-up with psych next week. With any luck I’ll get the surgery by November

Just didn’t psyche evaluation yesterday. Was nervous but it was a pleasant experience. Now just have to get through seeing the nutritionist then 4 months of a medically supervised diet. Hopefully surgery by February. Fingers crossed. So glad I won’t need the liquid pre op diet just no more than 1400 cals a day for 2 weeks before surgery. Can’t wait. Good luck to you all.

I’m a newbie from Omaha. I had surgery on August 2, 2021 with Dr. Tanner at UNMC.

How did you like Dr. Tanner? I’m still looking for a surgeon in case I’m not too happy with the one I was assigned.

Hi! I loved Dr. Tanner and the UNMC Bariatric Center. Everybody there is well informed, thorough, and pleasant to work with. They roll the red carpet out for you. I was nervous and worrying about the surgery, because I’m 53 and have grandkids that I care for, so that weighed heavy on me. Dr. Tanner reassured me, beside normal surgery risks, and stated that she has not lost a patient before, which eased my worry. I hope you find a great provider! Best wishes for you on your journey and for a speedy recovery. Thank you for reaching out.

Excellent! I passed my psych eval and will visit the surgeon soon. Now pushing out my deadline… with any luck I’ll get my surgery by March of next year.

That’s great! The process is definitely a long one, but in the end I found that it was worth it and made the difference. Changing to a new lifestyle was a little easier after going through that long process leading up to surgery and then afterward. I hope the next couple months go quickly and smoothly for you. Nice talking with you again. Reach out anytime.

I’m going to my last pre-op appointment (I believe) not this Tuesday but next to meet the surgeon and decided which surgery I’m getting. I also see UNMC is postponing surgeries as of 12/7/21 and am getting increasingly worried that it’ll affect me…

@Lussa I was in your shoes last year with surgeries being postponed. I ended up having to schedule a couple months out and by then I was able to get it. Honestly I am a believer that things happen in the time they are supposed to happen and usually go better than I could imagine! Praying this for your surgery!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
