They drag their feet. I had to do a 6 months supervised diet which took forever and now I need to meet with a nutrionist, a nurse, and a mental health person. Then I can submit all my stuff to the insurance. I am just waiting for the hospital to call me to schedule my appt so see the people.

just off the phone from my own dr, there is a staff shortage in the hospital there is a 6 to 12mts wait for some of the test, she said that even to call me into our local hospital for some of those test still could take 6 to 12mts, but the dietican is to ring me during the week about starting me on the milk diet so i still am no close than yesterday

Wow 6 to 12 months, that is just ridiculous. I am still in the same spot too I haven't called the hospital yet. I am trying to give them a chance. I will call them by the time I leave work.

I feel like a stalker calling each day and it's a shame we have to harrass these people. When I go on my break I am going to call them.

That's true, just called the hospital they have appts as early as next week but they still need to put all my information in the system. Maybe if I keep calling they will do the work.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
