    Dr. Macik is on my provider list, so he is one of the Docs I'm looking at. If you don't mind me asking, did you have to do a mandatory physician supervised diet before he would approve your surgery? And if you did, how long did you have to do it for? Was it required by your insurance as well? Thanks so much for your input.

When will this nausious feeling go away?

by danag on 11-22-2014 at 12:09 AM
Almost 5 days out and the pain is a lot better, but this nausious feeling is horrible! I feel like crap! I thought that my previous c sections and lap band surgeries would compare, but those are nothing compared to this! I am having a hard time getting anything down. I just have an unsettled tummy feeling. Any suggestions on how to get through this?

drain and fever question

I had my surgery on Tuesday and came home on Wednesday. I have a drain that they will take out this coming Tuesday. I was assuming that the drain would start slowing down, but it seems to be draining more I also have a low grade fever of 100.3. They did not give me any antibiotics to take at home. I am going to call the office when they open, but did anyone have a similar experience?

I am having my own pity party. I have been approved for surgery on November 18th.You would think that I would be happy. I have waited a long time for this approval and it has finally come. I can't stop thinking of "Why Me?" Why can't I lose weight on my own? Why can't I just be happy with who I am? Do I really want to do something so permanent? Why am I addicted to food and especially sugar? Will I succeed at this? Will I fail? How long will I not feel good? Will I be depressed about

How did you get over your fear of the surgery?

by danag on 07-09-2014 at 09:24 AM
My doctors office finally sent for approval to my insurance company! After 6 months of doing what the insurance company has asked, I am finally waiting for approval. I am assuming this will probably take a couple of weeks. I

I have been so sure that I want this surgery, but now I am getting scared. What did you do to get over your fears?
