  1. Okay, soooo i have been cleared by my Cardiologist!!! Yay!!! Next stop Pulmonologist on Monday, Oct 1st. Super excited! After that, i shall be Approved and then begin my surgery prep including Upper GI and Chest xray. soooooooooooo ready for this surgery. I find myself having dreams about life after weightloss. I feel free in my dream and i feel like theres nothing holding me down anymore. Its mostly mental believe it or not. I will no longer feel like people are judging me because of my weight or most of all, i wont judge myself anymore. smh . . . thank you in advance Lord
  2. Clearance received from the Cardiologist!! Last stop: Pulmonologist on Oct 1st. Kinda wanted a closer date but this gives me time to get any last minute paper work needed. !! Leggo!!

  3. soooooo it has now been 13months that i have been going thru the whole "Insurance Approval Adventure". i completed my 6 months of NUT meetings, 1 psych evaluation, call my doctor, call my insurance, call my management group, calling calling asking verifying!! Trying everything in my power to hurry the process along just so i can finally get what ive been waiting for . . . A Surgery Date!! *Stop* Now Breathe! Okay, soo i went to see the cardiologist today for a check up. I have no diseases or illnesses due to my Obesity but my insurance group required that i have clearance from a cardiologist and pulmonologist before they would approve me for surgery . . . This is usually done right before surgery and after you receive your surgery date But my insurance wants it before they will approve my surgery. So i go to the cardiologist today and i had some coffee before i went in and the nurse takes my blood pressure and its 170/ 110!!!!!! WWWOOOOWWW! crazy!! ive never had an abnormal anything. so the cardiologist asks me questions and examines meand runs the ekg and everything is fine. . . i dont show any symptoms of high blood pressure i.e swollen legs, chest pain etc, so i wait for 10 minutes to see if it goes down and during this time, i try to relax and take deep breathes and he checks it again . . . 160/90. Still abnormally high. so the cardiologist says that he wants me to take a blood pressure medication until surgery. He says that i am okay tho. Im super confused/worried because #1 i dont want anything getting in the way of me having my surgery and i dont want to be taking medication. i know that hbp is caused by obesity but ive never had it before. Should i be concern???

    Mr Telephone Man......something Wrong With My Line?

    I hear ya girl, My management group wants me to receive my preop tests before they will approve me so that is where i am at. Its been a whole year this month that ive been in the process of receiving my sleeve. Now we are at the final step before and i am praying for patience!! I cant wait to be a normal size person. I just have to remember to breathe.
