    Default 1 more month

    After waiting over one year, I finally have a surgery date. November 4, 2019. I started this journey in October 2018 and finally the time has come. It started with the seminar then going to see the surgeon followed by 6 monthly dietitian appointments. once all that was done I waited on the insurance for 6 weeks.(I guess someone forgot to open my case, go figure.) now 2 days a go I got the approval and a date for surgery. I start a 3 week liquid diet on October 14th. that's gonna be a blast... not! So just one more month before I can start the beginning of the rest of my life.

    Congratulations a new chapter of your life. It really is an exciting and sometimes, nervous time, but having the sleeve done is one of the best decisions I've ever made. Please ask any questions, there are plenty of newbies and experienced sleevers here who are willing to share their personal experiences with you.

    Congratulations on your date! It's the same as mine only mine was 5 years ago. I cannot imagine having to wait a year. It would have driven me batshit crazy. I looked up the surgery October 16, 2014, had my consultation on the 29th, and had my surgery November 4, 2014. Your surgery will be here soon, and then the next thing you know, you'll be 5 years out. It's wild how fast the time goes. Best of luck to you.

    Yay for you Hershey! Call me crazy, but I’m of the mindset that waiting a year is not a bad thing. After reading a lot of posts here and other places it seems quite a few people jump into gastric surgery without really thinking it through and understanding that it is not a magic bullet. Granted, some who haven’t had to jump through the hoops are successful, but I think you having time to really consider the commitment you are making to your future health will only help you. Best of luck!
