  1. I was just excited and anxious, that's why I had that idea.. But i've found out my insurance doesn't cover it and neither does any other obama plan which is all that i can afford. I saw this coming though. Anything I want and get excited for falls through. Sorry for the pity party, i'm really down right now. Thanks for the replies though. I appreciate it
  2. I'm still awaiting my appointment with the surgeon but would it be a good idea to start the diet? I'm real excited for this and I was thinking maybe it would be a good idea to start so that I can get used to the changes?
  3. Thanks for the replies! My moms concern is she thinks people that have had bypass don't live as long because of malnutrition. I know that as long as you follow the diet as you should that's not true, and there's a lot more food options nowadays. I would just like to find facts to present to her to help ease her mind
  4. I'm really worried about the pain because pain killers usually wear off after taking them 2-3 days in a row and I'm a sissy when it comes to pain!
  5. After making the decision to get wls and then reading this, I'm definitely going to quit. I know it'll be tough at first but I know i can do it and that it will be worth it! Thanks for the great info!!
  6. Totally random but, does anybody know how come I can't see all the boards on my cell phone? I have an iPhone and I'm seeing this site for the first time on my laptop and noticing a lot more boards
  7. I got my appt today for my consult with a surgeon. Does anyone have advice about it and what questions I should ask? I have a couple already but I'm still a bit new to this and still doing my research. Also, i haven't told my mom I'm considering the surgery because of the concerns she's expressed. Any ideas on how to ease her mind? Thanks!!
  8. Thanks so much for the replies and info!!
  9. Hello everyone! I'm brand spankin new, referred by a good friend. Just found out today I qualify for surgical help and am SO EXCITED! I know there are multiple kinds so, which do you recommend?
