  1. Thanks. Good point and I guess what you cant cure you must endure. While doing my Creme of Tomato this am I did dab a bit of Tabasco (Chipotle flavor) directly on the tongue. It seemed to be a bit of a lift and made the bland Soup a bit more palatable. I read a few articles how some peppers may irritate the new pouch and inhibit healing a bit so I guess Ill nix the plans for the creme of creole chicken recipe I was developing for tonight! Thanks for the input.

  2. We certainly can't compel them to give us clearance and in my experience the more you try and pressure a doctor to do something they're not thrilled with the more entrenched they become. Make sure your program knows that Doctor No is against WLS in principle so they can refer future pts elsewhere. Heard of a PCP once told a 400+ guy that was considering WLS "You don't need surgery you just need to exercise more and eat less." The struggle is real.

  3. So far so good. My primary's clearance was contingent on my cardiologist which I have just received after Echo and Stress Test (I have previous cardiac issues). The lab work was extensive and the pulmonary routine. The GI study and Gall Bladder were accomplished the same day. Its a very busy process but Im now down the psychological clearance. No kidding WellStar's clearance program is extensive but Im sure that means less complications later.
