Pre Op Hoops to go through



Recommended Posts

So I will just be meeting with My Surgeon for the first time on January 5th (Also the Day I have to pay the Co pay for surgery). I Have no clue what happens from there.. What Will I probably have to do after meeting with the surgeon?

I met my surgeon for the first time at my first appointment but seen the nurse practitioner from then on until my pre op appointment where I seen the surgeon again. I think it varies drastically From one clinic to the next what they require and in what order. I only had to do the required supervised weight loss appointments for insurance, a nutritionist visit, a psych evaluation and pre op labs. Those were all the requirements. Some programs and insurances require more. Some people are required to do some heart tests to make sure they are okay for surgery and some doctors require a COVID test.

I had to do an EKG, a nuclear stress test (since my surgeon required it for patients over 50 years old), a sleep study...that might have been it (in addition to the labs and the various meetings). You'll almost certainly have to have a COVID test a couple of days before surgery, too, since that seems to be standard before any hospital procedure these days.

Programs are structured very differently. Meeting the surgeon was my very last step. Classes, testing and other doctor visits all had to be completed first.

      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 🥲

      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.
