Default Preparing for eventual WLS

It is time for a change so today I took the first step towards WLS, hopefully a VSG. My health insurance company requires registration with their Bariatric Resource program which I did.

Found out that I qualify for WLS (my choice of procedure) but it will take at least six months of the program before I am allowed to actually go through with surgery. I am to receive an RN case manager who will lead/follow me through the pre and post operative periods.

I am excited but also wary of what will happen over the next six months. The case manager should contact me next week so we can officially start the process. We shall see how it progresses.

That's a huge step, Isa. I wish you the very best as you progress toward surgery, and the big changes ahead.

Let me know if you ever need to bend an ear, ok?

Dont think of that 6 months as a stumbling block but as a gift.... before my WLS I had to do 6 months and I partied a lot and last suppered so much that I gained weight and my surgery was postponed til I could lose 33 pounds. I got serious because I realized if I could not behave so to speak for 6 months how was I going to do it my whole life.
from Aug 09 to jan 10 I lost 44 pounds and maintained it for 3 months then lost another 8 in the month before surgery. Now I KNOW I can lose weight, I know I can do not just my surgery doing it but ME. I also spent that last 6 months before WLS learning about food and how it effected me. Also because of the weight I lost I was able to get Lapro surgery and not open surgery.... no scar and quick healing, every pound you lose in the months before wld makes the procedure easier.
Good Luck
