    I must be losing my mind... I got approved for surgery, but found out my surgeon is on vacation for the next couple weeks so I cannot see him until Dec 6th. That is when I will schedule surgery. I asked if she knew aprox when the surgery will be, and she told me he may not be able to operate until after the first of the year depending on his schedule... this has me so bummed that I am not even celebrating that I got approved... WTC is wrong with me??

It was quite informative. The class went over both the pre and post op diets and discussed vitamin a bit. only 2 more appts left... last weigh in with my PCP, and my UGI 1 on 1 NUT. both the first week of Nov WOOHOO

    WOOHOO Finally got psych clearance!!! Next week i dot my first NUT class and my support group... the first week of Nov I do my UGI, second NUT and final weight in at PCP then file insurance and wait... The good news about the wait is my patient advocate says my insurance is usually pretty quick about getting the approval back.

    Maybe I am just impatient, but it has been 4 weeks and 4 days since my Psych appt... My program will not let me do anything else until (no NUT or UGI or anything)  until they get those results and get them approved... this is frustrating... i only have 3 weeks until i have my last weigh in and i was hoping to have the rest done by then so they could file my insurance... I tried to call today but they are apparently closed for Columbus day. UGH vent over thanks

    I had the worst experience this weekend... Friday my brother and mother talked me into riding a ride at the fair that i did not want to ride... i got up in the chair and they could not latch the harness... bc I am too fat. I knew it b4 i got up there but it is so much worse when u have proof... I cannot wait for the day when stuff like that no longer happens... silver lining is that i have new motivation to stick to it.,
