Hello all, I recently asked my PCP if I was a good candidate for gastric bypass and he said yes without hesitation and referred me to their bariatrics. I’m in the bay area so I got a call 2 days later from the South San Francisco staff and they scheduled my first nutrition class and also my appointment with my surgeon.
I currently have a BMI of 38 and have no additional health issues and scared about getting denied.
Has anyone had luck within the 35-39 BMI range without any cormorbidities? I’ve done extensive research and I have my mind set that this is the right choice. I felt hopefully for once in a long time, but now I am scared I am not going to qualify.
