I’m having bypass surgery soon (in Toronto) and have completed all of the appointments. I have my appointment with the surgeon soon and was wondering if anyone knows if I will get my surgery date at that appointment? I was told to bring a credit card to buy the shakes I need to drink prior to surgery. Also are there more surgeon appointments before surgery or just the one? I can’t find anything clear online. Thanks!
Mine really isnt a question as much qs a statement. The Band does NOT reduce the size of your stomach!! It reduces the size of the opening to your stomach. Making smaller bites feel like much larger bites... your 'pouch' abive the band is not to be 'filled' as a stomach would; it is to slow your eating down.... banded since 2013.
what can i do to keep weight off ive just started all fruits exercising everyday walking what else
I had the surgery and after a bit I was doing great then my weight started to come back and now I am bigger than before and can't even look in the mirror and I think about my weight all the time and now I am going back to the doctor that did my surgery to see something happened to my sleeve because now I find Iam hungry all the time

Does anyone know where I can go or what I can do to get coverage for me to have the Roux-en-Y surgery? My husband's work will not get insurance coverage for any weight loss surgery.

Im scared that i would not be able to stick with such a minimal diet for a year. Pluss once the weight is lost how does one not regain the weight once a regular diet is reintroduced? I dont know anyone personaly whoes had this done. Im afraid its the only option i have left.
