  1. Getting sick before surgery?

    Like mostly everyone else has said, get a flu shot if you haven't yet. I knew my surgery would be scheduled in Oct. or Nov., so I was scared about getting sick as well. I made sure to get one about 6 weeks ago.

    Best of luck on your surgery and recovery! Can't wait to read your updates!
  3. Hi y'all!

    Best of luck to you! We've got this! <3
  4. The worst week of my life

    I am so sorry for your loss.
  5. Hi y'all!

    Thank you!
  6. Hi y'all!

    Thank you ladies! I felt kind of strange in that class when so many were freaking out and nervous. I told them my only worry was that something would come up and would prevent it from heppening, lol. I am, however, dreading the pain and the trapped gas. A friend who was sleeved in February '17 said "the first week after is hell, but it gets better and easier everyday.", so I've told family not to hold any ill moods or words against me for a week or two following the surgery, lol.
  7. Hi y'all!

    Thank you for all the support! Although my surgery is in 12 days, I am excited, but I do not feel one ounce of anxiety nor fear. It's just been such a long process that I'm just so glad to finally get here. Nearly everyone else at the education class last Wednesday was talking about how they were super nervous. In fact, I was able get my November 30th surgery date because someone got cold feet and backed out. I absolutely know the risks and realize fully what's going to take place, but I really have no worries...did anyone else feel this way?
  8. Hi y'all!

    Thank you! Yes, I can't complain. Two weeks would be so difficult, especially since that would include Thanksgiving!
  9. Hi y'all!

    I was told yesterday that I would have to do a liquid diet for 48 hours before the surgery.

    The day has FINALLY came!
  11. Hi y'all!

    Thank you! Of course I want to! I meant 'soon'...not sure why it came out 'loo', lol!
  12. Hi y'all!

    Thank you! I am not sure I know how to do that yet, but I will loo. Thanks again!
  13. Hi y'all!

    Yes, that's exactly the kind of stuff I've been going through. I haven't been on in a few days because honestly, I was so frustrated that I didn't want to get my hopes up too much only to be told I didn't get approved or that they needed something else or had misplaced something else. I made a deal with myself that I was not going to call them, I was going to put it out of my mind as much as I could and if it happens, it happens. Then, Monday afternoon, I get a call from my coordinator "reminding" me to be at my 2-week pre-op education class. It really wasn't a reminder because no one had ever mentioned such a class, but I was like "no problem. I will be there!". I attended the class, then about 2 hours after it was over I was doing some shopping and I got a text that said my insurance had just approved me!!!! So I am FINALLY approved! No more roller-coaster emotions of 'is this going to happen?' and 'is this not going to happen?'.
  14. Hi y'all!

    Thanks everyone! I have been kind of aggravated with my surgery coordinator, so I've been trying to clear my mind for a couple of days to reduce the anxiety. I absolutely love the surgeon who will be performing my surgery but the bariatrics office staff has been another story. They are very nice and sweet, and they keep assuring me that my surgery is on for November 30th, BUT they keep asking me "Did you turn XXXXXXX in? I can't find it in your chart.", and it will be something I turned in weeks or months ago. They've done that twice. And they will NOT call me back. It's like I have to stay right on them. None of this would really bother me if it weren't for my insurance. They act like there is zero chance that I'll be denied, but I just wish they'd go ahead and submit it to make sure. November 30 is less than 3 weeks away! Has anyone else had frustrations like this??
