It takes time for them to call back.... It took me about 2 weeks after the referral process. I am an OC Kaiser member. :) We were referred out to Dr LePorte's bariatric surgery facility. :)

I just finished the classes Sept. 14th at Fontana. Just had my 2nd Bari appointment and my Psych is Nov. 7th. I heard after that it goes fast, so i have hoping for sooner than later! Its kinda agrivating that they want you to be so strict about the classes then they take 2 months to get you a Psych appointment. But oh well, gives me time to prepare.

It is the same time every week on the same day. I had Fridays at 11am but they do have them throughout the week at different times, I think even some night ones. I just got cleared through the Psych eval, so now its just a waiting game for the pre-op appointment for the surgeon! So excited. I started the classes the beginning of June with th orientation. You can miss a max of two classes, but if you miss a third they drop you and you have to start over, also they require you to make up any missed classes before you can get your secondary baratric appointment or psych. The classes themselves are an hour and half long. My class time was 9:30 to 11:00 am. If you have any questions you can def. message me :)

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

    • Living4cc

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
