My surgery is November 4 with Dr. Fok Russell through Medicalmex in Tijuana. I live in Missouri and wish I could've had it here but my insurance didn't cover.

I totally understand that! I am still on my mothers insurance and they covered it but my wifes insurance didn't so we are haivng to pay out of pocket for hers. Best of Luck to you on your weight loss journey!

November 5th in Louisville, Kentucky. I’ve been waiting for a while to get approved. Then, once I was approved, Iwas told that hospitals weren’t scheduling surgeries because they needed COVID beds. So I got it in my head that the surgery wouldn’t be until next year. Then they called. And now it’s in a few weeks! Ack! I’m excited and nervous.

I am scheduled for Nov. 3. While it has been a frustrating process at times with quite a few hic-cups but all in all very happy with the time to think through this very drastic life change for someone in their 60's. Now that I'm in the 2 wk liver diet it feels so real. Fingers crossed for great success to all posting.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
