January 2022 Surgery Buddies



Recommended Posts

Hello! Thought I would start out this group as I have a surgery date for Jan 4, 2022!! I'm so excited and a bit anxious for the pre-op diet - I will be starting it while on vacation - but what a great way to say Hello to the New Year!!

Crossing the fingers that I can get a surgery date in January. I have a pre-op appointment on the 17th and hope to get my date then! Super excited for this opportunity.

Hi everyone,

I submitted all the documents 2 weeks ago to my Surgeon’s Office. I’m awaiting:

1. 2 more appointments with my Surgeon Signing the consent form, picking a Surgery date and taking a quiz while at the 2nd appointment

3. Approval letter from the insurance company

The Holiday season is up on, it’s obvious that my Surgery won’t be next month like I wanted . It will be in January

Can we make a Facebook group so we can chat daily and cheer each other along?

I’m in! My surgery is December 10th. I’m having the gastric sleeve done in Mexico. My insurance won’t cover it.

Are you scared to have it done in Mexico?

I just heard from my doctor that my surgery is scheduled for Jan 18th. I am super excited! I've decided on the RNY due to GERD and heartburn that I currently suffer from.

Yes! Very excited! Are you?

Sorry for the delay in getting back with you. With the Holiday I was not able to get on here.

I am excited. Trying to get everything in order is a challenge.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
