Gastric bypass is set for May 16th. Hopefully that won’t get delayed. I’ve been having some stomach issues, and my primary doctor is wary about approving me for surgery until we find out what’s going on. I can’t wait!

Hi all! New to the site and I’m scheduled for to have the sleeve May 6th. Pre-op exam and COVID test were scheduled today and everything gets submitted to insurance for final approval tomorrow. Fingers crossed there are no hiccups or delays. Wishing us all safe surgeries and success!!

Hey there! Very excited to meet you and hear how it goes for all of us. Do you think we can lose as much weight with the sleeve as those with bypass?

These are things I think about when I can’t sleep. I’m getting mine in Mexico with OCC and while my family is supportive; my friends think I’ve lost my mind…😅

How long did everyone take to hear back from insurance? I just need cardiology approval (stress test is tomorrow) and my EGD on April 11th

So I have Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois. My doctor submitted my paperwork on March 30th and I had my approval on April 1st. I'm not kidding. Nobody has ever seen it go that fast.

I'm hoping we can! With the amount I have to lose, I would be interested in the bypass but I have Crohn's Disease and my surgeon wanted to do the sleeve.

My surgeon said in general, sleeve patients lost about 10% less weight than gastric bypass. But he also said that's the average. He said he has seen patients who are really motivated and disciplined actually lost the same or even a little more. Depends a lot on the person.

      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.
