Hello everybody, I am new here. I was first going to have the Gastric Bypass but have since changed my mind (to invasive for me). I have taken all the post ops tests for the bypass. Everything looked good. I do have sleep apnea to a slight degree. I guess this question is for anybody that has went thru Tricare. How long after your referral was put in, did it take for Tricare to approve/disapprove. And if approved how long is the process from first surgeon visit till your banded? Sounds like there is a lot of success stories on here and I would love to be one. Any help in this process would be great. Maggie:rolleyes2:

Is there going to be someone looking after you two? Because you will be needing some help and if you think you can help each other up off the couch and things.... no no... too painful.

Yes, we will have our parents there to help us. His mother will stay one night, and my mother will stay the next until we're able to move around

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
