So far this has been a long process to date. My journey started last year April 2022 (Referral), then gallbladder removal last June. Following months September 2022-March 2023 consisted of a lot of labs, sleep study, nutritionist appointments, online support groups, personal trainer sessions, weight management visits. As of today 7/30/23, I have just one visit left with my nutritionist in August. My pre-op class early September.
Update. Completed everything as of September 13. 2023. Waiting game on now, for approval, Wish me luck
