I am not at the stage yet, but wondering what kind of sugar free things you go to? Trying to get suggestions as I go.

I know I am pretty early on being 3 weeks post op, but I am writing down things that I am looking forward to. Obviously I am looking for better health but materialistically, I am excited about cute clothes again and being able to shop off any rack in a

I am one week out from surgery and trying to add some variety since chicken broth is starting to be unappealing to me. I am mixing it up with my protein shakes but want to know what other options you can recommend for broths? any recipes? or tips?

Hi All!

I have been home since Tuesday night and happy to say I am resting comfortably with some bouts of pain here and there. It's hard to cough/sneeze but I am doing my best to get my fluids in and intake of protein.

Broth has been m

Sitting here waiting to be wheeled back! Prayers needed.

Thank you all for your support over the last year. I am overwhelmed with emotions that this day is FINALLY HERE!!!


SuMari posted a discussion topic 7 months, 2 weeks ago

Please say a prayer that my surgery is not rescheduled. I hate to even think about it but my anxieties are super high right now. I take my Covid test tomorrow and then have to self isolate over the weekend and then I check in for surgery at 9:00 am. </

I received the best news this morning! After seeing my bariatric doctor just before Thanksgiving, they just called to let me know that I am scheduled for Monday, December 21 for the Bypass! I am so beyond THANKFUL! FINALLY!


SuMari posted a discussion topic 8 months, 3 weeks ago

I have 2 children now, and my husband and I are not sure if we are quite done yet. How was the process for those who have had a baby after having bariatric surgery? can you help me with ways things were different (if you had kids, prior)? Did you gain

I don't have a specific date yet because I am meeting with the surgeon's office at the end of the month. Oh my God, I am so relieved. I was wondering about things you did to prep?

  • Questions I can ask the surgeon?
  • Tell me what

So, my insurance denied my request to approve surgery citing, "Not Enough Evidence, Lack of Supervised Weight Loss Efforts"

I am so confused!! I went through more than 6 months of visits, food logs, mental health appointment, support group atte

Still haven't heard from my insurance company about my approvals and trying to do things that take my mind off of "waiting".

What are some things you now do, new hobbies etc. that you have picked up since you can't just sit an eat (that's what

I saw something this weekend that really resonated with me. I can't remember it verbatim, so I am paraphrasing here...

Is there anything that that has happened you wish you knew to expect before your surgery? ( good things bad things )

I just had my last appointment with my PCP/Nutritionist and everything is being submitted as we speak! Hopefully will have a surgery date within one to two months but wondering about birth control ? Doctor told me to stop the pill because of blood clot

Just curious how long your surgery was? How long you were under, how long you stayed in the hospital?

Hi all, just curious if you can recall how long it took you from when you submitted your paperwork for approval, to the time you were able to schedule for surgery? Trying to get a "guesstimation" of how long it might be? I realize that I am not account
