    I have scheduled every required test: endoscopy, cardiac+stress test, psychological consult, radiology exams, lab work.  Sleep study is being scheduled by the surgeon's office.  Its a big lift!  I wonder how many people give up along the way?

    So my name is Loren and I am beginning my weight loss journey. On September 7th I went to a very small seminar at the surgeons office, and right after I had my first nutrition consult. I was told that I qualified and given a folder full of things that I could get started on if I wanted. September 8th I ran to get my blood work done. September 12th I went for my UG I and chest x-rays at 8:30 in the morning. Around 10:30 am the surgeons office called to go over my results. I found out I had pre diabetes, vitamin B and D deficient. The diabetes is not a problem the number was a 6.3 so it wasn't treated. The Vitamin D is being treated at 50,000 units once a week, and Vitamin B is just over the counter...no red flags. UG I and chest x-rays were perfect. September 14th  I went to my primary to get clearance and my medical history. She was more than happy to do it for me. She told me this a great life changing opportunity.  September 15th I went for my cardiac clearance ekg was fine so I was in and out in a flash. I scheduled my appointment with the surgeon and that appointment is coming up on the 28th of September. Yes, you read that correctly I've done all this running around and haven't had my first appointment with the surgeon yet. All that is left is my pulmonary visit on October 10th, the psych evaluation, a sleep study, two more nutrition visits, and pre op class. I don't know what to expect from the consult with the doctor...I wish I was able to get a date at this visit. Im really hoping for a November or December date at this point.

    Had to share a pic from this past weekend when I went to a Cubs game with family. I'm still pre-op so this is going to be one of my before pics I think. And yes, that's me in the pink pants haha. Not something I would normally buy or wear, so it was a big deal to wear them for me. Cubs lost, but I had a good time

    Why do I feel someone needs to moderate these forums. Most times I come across a question asked 5 years ago. Hello? Is there anyone new getting surgery? This sucks...and I'm probably just venting because no one is reading this anyway because everyone abandoned this sight and I'm Hangry! Yes...Hungry and Angry... I have 10 more days of this starvation...can I eat peanut butter?
