New here and just finished pre op requirements



Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have been reading different post over the last week before I decided to join. Glad I did 😊 I have finished my last nutrition visit yesterday my insurance company required 6 months. A little disappointed I only lost a couple of pounds so I hope and pray my insurance company approves it. Unfortunately I believe my body has decided to pick this time to start peri-menopause which they say may be why I am not losing despite making all the changes that I have made. I just hope it is enough to get approved. So now I just wait I guess to here if it was approved hopefully not to long for an answer.

Hi, I'm new here also! So much helpful content and it's very encouraging to see others who are healthy and happy with their decision. It feels overwhelming at times.

I just completed my tests and pre-op appointment, then a few more hurdles and I should be good to go. I can't wait.

I hope your approval comes through successfully!

Welcome to you both. Oh yeah. Peri menopause & then menopause is the worst. It’s when I put on 30kg (15 more than I ‘d ever done before) & couldn’t shift a gram of it.

Was so glad I found this forum before my surgery. There are lots of people willing to help, offer suggestions, hold your virtual hand or Celebrate with you here.

Hope all goes well with your approvals.

Good luck to all that are waiting for approvals. I was told it could take 7-15days for a response from the insurance company. I rush an open every email that comes in phone lol even though they just sent me the message Friday evening telling how long it can be and it’s only Tuesday 🤣. Very nervous not about the surgery but about the approval ready to get the 2 weeks of liquid deliciousness over 😂🤥

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
