I am so mad at myself I don't know where to begin. I am a complete failure.

I have struggled from the first day after surgery and have only lost about 20 lbs since April 10th this year.

I can eat anything I want and there is little to n

It's getting so close now and I'm getting excited and nervous. My pre op diet is really good. I'm enjoying having food instead of opti.

I'm not afraid of chickening out because I've waited far too long and worked too hard to walk away now. Al

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 have my frien

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

Hi Everyone,

I got the call last week to meet the surgeon at TWH. My appointment is February 2nd. Does anyone know when they are booking surgeries for?

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 am so excited. I just go the call last Thursday that I have the green light and am approved for surgery!!

I had been waiting so long for that call and now that I have it I am nervous about getting the surgery. Maybe I can do this on my own? S

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?

Toronto Western Hospital - RNY

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
