Results are in…. APPROVED



Recommended Posts

I am beyond excited. I have received approval from Tricare and my surgery date is January 18,2021. I am so ready to start living. I am planning on taking 3 weeks off work. I work in the hospital and do not want to go back until I am at least on soft. I do a lot of moving, pushing, pulling, and running to operate on liquids.

I am anticipating on going on the liquid pre-op diet January 3rd. So BP friends…give some tips to get me through the additional waiting?

P.S. I am hoping that some additional days open sooner and I can be moved up.

I used Tricare as well. They paid all but 158 dollars! Good luck to you. I am down 64 pounds in just less than 3 months and at my lowest weight in 18 years!

Thank you so much. $158…. I’ll take it …lol. I am looking forward to becoming healthy. Also… keep up the work. People say WLS is the easy way out…Ha! If they only realized what’s involved with it.

Honestly? Start practicing sipping Water rather than gulping it. But enjoy your holidays... since you snuck in juuuuuust under the wire with the pre-op diet.

You're going to be so happy with the changes in your life. I'm down 58 since surgery nine and a half weeks ago, and feeling amazing.

Congrats! My surgery is Jan 18th too! I am still waiting to hear from insurance so I am keeping my fingers crossed. The surgeon's office does not think it will be a problem getting it approved. I am currently focusing on getting in more Water and weaning myself off Diet Coke (I swear they put something in that stuff that's addictive). I am also logging in all my food to see what my macros are currently and to get in the habit.

Congratulations on your surgery date. Another thing to practice is slowing down your eating and taking smaller bites. This is a big challenge for many.

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
