  1. Hello there,

    Sorry for the late reply. My surgery went well. I had terrible nausea for the first week. After I got over that I seem to be doing fine.

    I'm on stage three diet. I'm adding foods very slow though. I seem to to,erase fish more than anything. Chicken if it's ground so small a baby can eat it lol.

    I tried a few pieces of lettuce, yes I'm a gluten for punishment, and promptly ran to the bathroom!

    Other than that, I'm doing well. I happy I had the surgery and don't miss anything. I wish I had it done 5 years ago.

    And you, keep me posted.

    Hey rwalli! How did your surgery go on the 2nd? I am just getting back to myself on day 4. I had to come home on oxygen, but other then that I believe I am doing as well as expected. I am looking forward to adding some cream soup to my diet week 2 and looking forward to my 2 week post-op appt. to see how I am progressing. I hope you are doing well. Looking forward to hearing about your progress.
  3. I will be having mine sometime in January. It will be done at Columbia St. marys.

    I hope yours went well.

Feeling accomplished....finally!

It's been a month since I've been sleeved.

So far, I've lost 30 lbs, 5 1/2 inches but what I feel best is that for the first time in 29 years I have been able to workout on the treadmill doung 3 mph for 35 minutes non stop without feeling like I'm goung to die!! Lol.

When I'm dobe, I can still walk, my knees don't hurt, my back doesn't ache and I feel like I'm going to survive the ordeal.

I know it seems weird, but the first time I did this I cried

It's getting real!!

Hi Everyone,

13 days to go until my surgery! I wasn't really giving it any thought until today!

I woke up to 4 calls. One from my family doctor confirming my ore-op work up. Two from my insurance company registered nurses (2 different nurses). Going over my surgery, recovery, etc, and one from my surgeons nurse coordinator confirming my A4 hour pist op class. I guess I will be attending this and coming home with a binder that tells me what to expect for the next

I'm still in shock! After hearing how my insurance will give a hard time for the Bariatric approval process, even though it is a covered procedure, I just called my insurance company.

They received the paperwork on January 8 and it was approved on the 9th!

My pre-op class is scheduled for January 22 with surgery being on February 2nd. I didn't think this would happen so fast. I feel like I'm going to wake up from a dream!

I'm now on the hunt for

Surgery is scheduled!

by rwalli1022 on 01-06-2015 at 03:23 PM
My surgery has been scheduled for February 2, Groundhog Day!

I can't wait for that day. I go for my 3 hour nutritional consult on January 22 and am waiting insurance approval. However, that takes 3 days to 2 weeks.

With my insurance company I have no nutritional consults or visit requirements.

So, I'm just excited to get this month over with!

Barium test

by rwalli1022 on 12-17-2014 at 07:16 PM
My Doctor just ordered a post op barium test to see if I had scar tissue from a prior surgery when I was two (50 years ago). I found out I have little scar tissue,which is great news. But I do have a small hiatal hernia caused from my acid reflux.

I'm not sure what this mean. I Can't wait til I see my surgeon in January 6. I'm hoping my surgery usnt postponed.

I'm doing this to help with acid reflux!

The time can't come soon enough for me.
