I just wanted to share my excitement and worries in my RNY journey.

I have finally been approved for surgery and am booked for April 10th!

I will get to eat 900 cals/day for 2 weeks pre-op - instead of Opti Fast.

I was wondering if anyone has had Dr. Urbach as a surgeon and can give me any information on him. I just recently found out that he would be my surgeon (through the SeamlessMD app). I know things can change one I get there but so far I am scheduled wit

I just got off the phone with the nurse for my surgery date. I am scheduled for April 10th at TWH.

Ironically, today marks the 1 year anniversary of when I was supposed to have the surgery.

I'm so excited and I just had to come here and

So I just met the surgeon at TWH on Friday and everything went good. I don't have a surgery date yet but they said probably early May.

I told the nurse that I cannot take opti fast and they forwarded me to a dietitian. Long story sho

Just wondering if anyone has taken part in the research study at TWH. It revolves around bacteria in the body before and after surgery.

I was approached by the research team to take part in the study but I am unsure if I should do it.

I was wondering if anyone had the alternative drink to the Opti Fast they prescribe?

Since I already had the opportunity to try Opti Fast for 3 days I already know that I can't drink it. I am going through TWH. I asked about an alternative and

I was wondering if people went on a high protein diet before the pre-op requirements?

I am trying to lose weight with a high protein diet of about 1400 calories a day. I suspect that I will lose weight but so far no dice. I have not completely

For anyone having had surgery at Toronto Western I was wondering about the hospital stay. I know they have private and semi private room but has anyone been in the ward?

I just checked my insurance and they won't pay for much of anything. I was

Hi,

Just wondering how long it is taking for people getting from meeting the surgeon to a surgery date?

Just wanted an idea on the current wait time.

I know it has taken me a while for this update but I was completely shocked and upset when I got the call that I was no longer eligible for surgery. I was already on day 3 of Opti Fast!

Don't think that they can't stop the process at anytime ri

I'm so nervous. I mean it will be the best gift I ever gave myself. I'll be having my surgery at Toronto Western.

My concern is I have newly diagnosed bipolar and I'm scared of the unknown. I just recently started a mood stabilizer. Does anyone

I just got home from my 2 hour nutrition class only to find out that my appointment with the dietician is not until July!!!  I thought I would be getting my appointment with the Surgeon not a dietician.  Now all I want to do is eat a bunch of CRAP to t
