Who's Getting Wls In April?


Recommended Posts

Am I the first one?

I got put on the schedule today--April 23rd--for the Vertical Sleeve. I thought there was going to be an insurance application, denial, and appeal (x however many times it took) but both my surgeon and the scheduling nurse told me BCBS of Massachusetts has been approving sleeves since Jan 1. I have not confirmed this with them myself but feel like jumping for joy anyway.

The nurse she'd call if she could get me in sooner but this is the first date she could make a definite for me.

It seems a looooong way away but it gives me plenty of time to prepare for the week off work (thinking positive and quick recovery, lol).

Hope someone else comes to hang out with me soon! :)

My surgery date is APRIL 18! Three weeks im going for my last drink this weekend and my last pig out. Im so scared of not being able to eat anything for the rest of my life. I know thats not true but I'm just really dramatic I am excited for my life change and i cant wait to not be in pain. Everyone talks about the pain associated with healing and im dealthy afraid of throwing up when im already in tons of pain. I have had 2 kids, 1 natural, surgery in my arm pit (which I rather have a baby then do that again), so I know a lil bit about pain and i have a couple tats. hahhah. I am very afraid that i have a real small tummy, I seen a youtube video that all people have different size stomachs, that means when you get sleeved your sleeve may be bigger or smaller than someone elses. I think thats nutts and hope I have a bigger sleeve, smaller sleeves I have seen so many videos of pain throwing up and just SICKNESS! I go to the gym 3 times a week and have lost 5 pounds. I hope this is a smooth process I want a success story of 80 pounds in 6 months! prove my family wrong (They arent very supportive, think im not that big) IM 5'4 and 265 pounds I am so READY FOR THIS! :D

I'm having bypass on April 12th. Was originally the 16th but today I got the call asking to move it up. I was all over that :). However, then it hit me. My liquid diet starts tomorrow. Maybe it is better this way.

Going shopping tonight with hubby to get all the things I can "drink" :)
