Any Feb surgery peeps out there?



Recommended Posts

I finally got a surgery date of Feb. 7th. It has been an interesting journey!
I initially went to a doctor to see what could be done for my severe GERD. I have been battling it for about 6 years and I now have a raw throat all of the time. I had a scope done and it showed I also had a hiatal hernia. My doctor referred me to a surgeon. At the meeting with the surgeon he told me that as severe as my hiatal hernia, GERD/reflux is that the best surgery option is gastric bypass.

I was a little hesitant but after talking to him for about an hour I understood why this is the best option. After meeting with a nutritionist and getting my psychiatrist eval done I finally got my surgery approved from my insurance.

Just wondering if there are any of you getting the same surgery done in Feb.?

My gastric bypass is setup for Valentines day 2/14. I am obscenely nervous. Haha. I just hope it's the right thing... my anxiety is through the roof. Good luck on yours!

I think I would be worried if we weren't anxious to a certain extent! Good luck!

My surgeon isn't requiring a liquid diet for me.

        Hi!

        I would love to be your accountability partner. I had the sleeve in 2021, so maybe I can give you some insights.

        Please message me back, looking forward to hearing from you!
