I started the process on September 27, 2017 by attending an information seminar at the hospital hosted by one of the bariatric surgeons. On October 3, 2017 I saw my PCP for a referral. She is very supportive. I saw the nutritionist and psychologist on December 12, 2017. I saw the surgeon for consult in January. I went back in June and had gained weight. I then buckled down and started losing weight. I went to the bariatric support group and then went back to the surgeon in early July and had lost enough for her to schedule my surgery. My surgery is August 16, 2018 and I have to start my pre-op liquid diet on August 2, 2018. I am currently doing a 1200-1400 calorie, high protein, low carb diet to try to lose more before my weigh in appointment on August 1, 2018. My preop appointment is scheduled for July 30, 2018.
