    Is smoking marijuana safe after surgery?

    Following because in my psych eval, he actually suggested I switch to medical Marijuana.
  2. I got the recommendation from my NP, today I have the Psy Eval. After that it should be on to testing to make sure my body can handle the surgery. :) Also I'm down to 350.8 this morning.

    TriCare Approved Now I Wait:(

    I actually researched my insurance to see if they would cover it. My insurance has a website where they can give you an estimate of costs. I found the center that would do it and did the orientation. However I think a lot of people go through their primary care doctors for a referral or letter of support. I'm currently starting the process of getting everything I need and my center is being very helpful.

    TriCare Approved Now I Wait:(

    I just seen my surgeon today and I'm hearing that they are not doing surgeries in Gainesville currently. But I'm hoping by the time I complete everything it will be back on track.
  5. I met the surgeon today! I really like him, now just need referral from primary care and psychologist. Center will schedule the testing.

    Good for you!
  7. I'm so sorry! I'm hoping for the best and maybe a caretaker service would be best. I live in a city by myself with no friends and I'm not sure what I'm going to do if I get approved for surgery. But from everyone else's response it may be good to hire a service.

    What are you looking forward to ?

    Because I am having trouble with dieting during this preop I wanted to add a few things: Bending down to tie my shoes and not experiencing horrible side cramps Not worrying about if I can fit into an uber or someone else's car Wearing athletic shoes, in school the kids always said my shoes were leaning over Walking on campus at a regular pace with coworkers and not sweating or being winded Being able to fit on rides, go to concerts and not have to shimmy walk at the theaters Working on a core that's strong enough where I can get up off of the floor without flailing around

    What are you looking forward to ?

    I want to kayaking and ride a seadoo. I want to ride a horse and stop having so much anxiety on whether people like me or not because I'm so big.

    My before and after.

    That's awesome!
  12. I am in the same boat, after doing more research it looks like my insurance will only pay for banding or gastric bypass. I thought wanted the sleeve...but I'm so tired of this weight that I'm thinking just going with what I can get paid for.
