I have 15 more days until my surgery (6/14). I am completely calm now about getting the sleeve. I was panicked for a few months but the more I read on here, the less I fear it. There are two links I want to put in here so that later if I have to refer to them, I'll know where to go. They are both for if you fall off the wagon and need to "jump start" your sleeve again. Basics Boot Camp - http://www.verticals...ics-boot-camp/� and the 5 Day Pouch Test -
http://www.5daypouch...uchtest.com/��� I hope not to use them but they are a great resource.
On Monday, June 4, I have to attend and Educational workshop at my surgeons office. This is where I will meet a dietician and a nurse. I will also be getting a couple of tests (EKG I think, and maybe something else).
My total costs so far:
Initial Dr. Visit co-pay: $40
2nd Dr. chosen - copay: $40
Psyc Eval - copay - $40
Educational Workshop - $40
InMotion personal trainer fee (mandated by the surgeon) $120
Hospital co-pay $300
(thank goodness my insurance covers this surgery and they also cover a tummy tuck as long as it's associated with the surgery!!)
I have four girlfriends that are size 12 and lower - they've all banded to give me their unwanted clothing! What a great group of friends!! They are always sharing and trading clothes. I can't wait to join "the club."
