    I wish it were FREE...I pay a $50 CoPay at specialty clinics and $15 at PCP and $9 prescriptions. But, its still cheaper than going to civilian docs. I am Category C. Non-service Connected, Non-Disability.

    It was back in 2011. Its all good, though! After my plastics, i needed some aftercare and they were very good about it. And, also, did my sleeve aftercare...sutures, etc.

    I got irritated everytime I read someone is having their sleeve through the VA! I am a veteran and my doc told me, "The VA does not pay for any weight loss surgery". HUH??? Oh well...Im glad you and others are able to have it done! Good luck...I KNOW how slow they can be.
  9. It's usually a pretty rare occasion to even get me in the picture at all. I generally try to avoid them. I am always much fatter than I think I am or feel in pictures.
  10. If you look at my before pics you will see exactly what I am talking about!! That is just one of many things I am looking forward to.

    Wow, more things in common. I work Thursday and Friday from 11pm-7am; Saturday and Sunday 7pm-7am. I teach ultrasound at one of the career colleges Monday after I get off from 8am-10am; Tuesday-Thursday from 8am-10am. I usually got to workout after I teach Tuesday-Thursday. I am going to try to go on Saturday and Monday though it my be tough on those days.

    After you get out of the hospital they will want you to walk, let me know and maybe we can work something out,

    Welcome to the site! I had my VSG Jan. 8th. I lost about 30 pounds but have bee a t a standstill for about 2 months. I am sure it is because I have not done any activity. This week I have done activity for three days. I am sure that I will see a change soon. If you need a workout partner, I am very willing. I have a membership at Gold's but also use the Base gyms. When my membership runs out to Gold's I will probably go to one of the Bases. Let me know anytime you want to know anything.

Anyone else HATE this being called an "elective" procedure?!?!

by christinae85 on 06-20-2013 at 11:53 PM
So today I found out that NO my school will not work with me in any way, shape, or form around me having surgery in Sep-Oct time frame. If I can't lift at least 50lbs, I'm not allowed to attend clinicals which means I'd miss 4 weeks (fairly certain that's what my doctor said was the minimum time for weight restrictions, rightfully so) & I'd be DROPPED from the program!!! SO APPARENTLY getting pregnant isn't considered elective (not sure how that's not free choice) & they'll work with

Pangs of Impatience

by christinae85 on 05-24-2013 at 02:04 AM
Argh! Have been so patient & fine with having to wait for months now. I'm going through the VA so it'll be free, but they're backlogged like crazy. Well my consultation is still a few weeks away & I'm starting to feel the pangs of impatience. Fairly certain this is due to my new clinical site I started at this week lacking patient transport so I have to walk all over the hospital all day getting patients for procedures. (In a radiology technologist program.) Wouldn't be an issue for a fit
