    First Surgiversary

    I never thought I would get to this day, yet here it is. One year ago at this time, I had just come out of the OR. I was nauseated beyond belief but not in too much pain. I woke up with alcohol...

    Re: I'm terrified!!

    I can understand being scared. I had a lot of time to think about reasons why I shouldn't have the surgery too. But the reasons why I should were way more pressing. We were of similar size...
  5. Re: Joint / Muscle pain months after sleeve surgery

    I wouldn't think so, but I have more joint pain now myself, especially in my hips. I am actually wondering if it is because I don't have the fat padding around the joints that I once did. Sometimes...

    Re: First post

    Re: New and Need Support...

    I am going on 4 months out. My surgeon told me for the first two weeks if I couldn't do anything more than broth and water I would be fine. Just to stay hydrated first and foremost. I sometimes...

    Re: Bowing out

    Usually if you have any co-morbidities at all, insurance will cover a BMI of 35 - I only had high blood pressure and a BMI of 39 and I was covered. Sometimes it takes a lot of collaboration with...

    Re: Hello & got a while yet to go

    Hey there - I sent a friend request. I am a baby sleever - just over 2 months. I will be happy to tell you more about my experience, but of course I have no yet met my goal or anything. Pretty...
  11. Re: Well - today was day one of my pre-op - liquid diet

    Welcome, best of luck to you. I will answer no on the ketosis question. What is required so far in my limited experience of two months is drinking enough, eating enough protein, and adding...

    Re: Insurance Denied!!

    I was denied by UHC as well but it was for not having documentation of my weight as obese over past five years. My surgeon had to do a peer to peer to have it overturned. I guess if they deny you...

    Re: Worries for next months

    It is going to take more than 2 weeks or 4 weeks to start to feel normal. It is major surgery, and I have learned that our body needs time to heal, and our mind also needs time to relearn some...

    How are you doing now that you are home???? I hope you are feeling better!!!
  18. Re: Anyone having surgery on the 18th with Dr. Almanza?

    I went to pre-registration at the hospital and my bill before I walked in for ANYTHING is already just over $20 thousand. However, I did get pre-authorization through the insurance that I have, AND...
