    I'm so frustrated with my GI doctor

    I've talked to them multiple times and they're just as baffled by him not doing it as everyone else I've talked with. I had an appointment today and they told me that I need to talk to my primary dr. He has no problem giving me a referral it's finding a gi dr that'll deal with it.

    I'm so frustrated with my GI doctor

    So I got another referral to a different GI dr and when I explained to him why I was there and what the last dr said he freaking laughed. Then told me I need to talk to my primary care doctor that there was nothing he could do. I'm done with all my weigh ins and all I need to do besides the clearance is take a hospital class and a nutrition class. I can't sign up for them till I have that clearance though. It's just so frustrating and I feel like I've wasted the last 8 months trying to reach something that isn't going to happen. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    I gave the coordinator his name and phone number and she said she would call them. Maybe she'll have better luck with him then I did. The wording could have been off but he seemed very adamant that he does not do that. I just wish he could've said something from the begining. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    I'm so frustrated with my GI doctor

    Since I was already a GI patient the clearance is what my insurance requires before they approve the surgery not the bariatric doctor's. The coordinator that handles all of the paperwork said that she was going to talk to one of the surgeons to see what he says but she really had no clue what to do.

    I did and she was kinda dumbfounded and said that she'd talk to one of the surgeons who the office belongs to and see what he says. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Oh how I wish I could. He has his own private practice though and everyone works under him. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app
  7. I need a GI clearance to have my surgery and I made an appointment with him back in October and told them very specifically why I needed to see him. I have been back and forth with them telling all the people I have seen in his office why I was seeing him when they asked and none of the ever mentioned that he doesn't do clearances for surgeries. I had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy done a few weeks ago and on Wednesday I went in and was told "I don't give clearances I just do the procedure. Talk to your family Dr." My final weigh in is in less than two weeks and now I have to find another GI doctor and hope that they are taking new patients. So any hope of having my surgery any time soon is in the toilet. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Wheeee! H. Pylori 😒

    For the last 6 months my mom's Dr has been trying to get rid of hers and everytime she gets tested to see if it's gone she still has it. Then today I found out I have it also but I'm hoping mine doesn't last as long. I hope you have better luck! Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Edu. Yourself!!

    It's multi level marketing. Companies like Avon and Mary Kay are the most popular that come to mind. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Starting at midnight you're not allowed? I think if you sleep for 8 hours and then get up and go to work then you'll only be going 4 hours without eating and drinking. I don't know if that's actually how long you sleep but 4 hours seems a lot shorter of a period if you think about it like that. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Throwing up when brushing teeth

    For me it's the taste of the toothpaste that makes me gag! So I bend over the counter with my head practically in the sink to stop any from getting to far back in my mouth lol Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app
  15. I was just wondering if there's anyone in the valley that has had surgery done? I'm having mine done out of Modesto. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app
