So my surgeon never discussed with me my goal weight. But from researching online, with my height, my ideal weight (or at least the weight that would give me a normal BMI) would be 145.6 pounds and below. Also, using the formula of current weight min
Itâ€™s been a real struggle this past month or so with the constant nausea/vomiting and then the pain. Was starting to think Iâ€™d never feel better and wondered if I had made the right decision by having the surgery. I came very close to losing my j
So I always had GERD really bad before surgery. Iâ€™d wake up in the middle of the night choking on stomach acid. It was horrible. This was one of my big reasons for having the rny over the sleeve.
Now itâ€™s like itâ€™s coming back full for
Had my one month post op yesterday. Since I didnâ€™t have any other symptoms other than nausea I was told it probably wasnâ€™t a stricture or anything like that and no other tests were needed. I was asked if I had any pain, but I told them no because

So I got the call today from my surgeons office that I have been approved for surgery. I will have the RNY surgery on the 23rd of this month. Iâ€™m excited and nervous all at once. Feels like Iâ€™ve been waiting so long for this from having insurance
So Iâ€™m prepping for RNY surgery....getting all of the requirements out of the way etc. And I have my psych evaluation on Dec 10th. I was told it was a 4 hour appointment. Iâ€™m sitting here wondering what on earth will be going on during those 4 h
Iâ€™m at that point now. Iâ€™m just tired of trying and donâ€™t think Iâ€™ll ever get there. I met with a weight loss surgeon last year who told me Iâ€™d be a better candidate for gastric bypass rather than the sleeve because with the sleeve I wouldn
So I finally have a consult appointment with a surgeon on June 8th so that I can discuss getting referred for a grant since my health insurance does not cover any form of WLS. I will have to pay for the consult out of pocket, but they said they won't
I've shared my story on here before about not having insurance coverage for WLS, but so desperately wanting it.
I'm still searching for other jobs that might offer insurance coverage for the surgery....but in the meantime I've contacted a loc
