Well, I was able to move up my Upper GI (he said I could have EGD or Upper GI) so I will have upper GI and ekg Monday, and then they can schedule it. His office said they have "several" days open in December. I just want "my" date open in December! Lol.

Had my Upper GI this morning. Officially I'm clean but the Dr said they debated for a while as to whether or not I have a hiatal hernia.

Meanwhile I'm telling everyone in my office that they found a HH which sets the stage for my cover up story.

Hoping that your day is open so we can be surgery twins! :)

I just sent a message to my boss telling him I am getting hiatal hernia surgery :)

I hope that I will be a December sleever. My pre op labs showed I have an h pylori infection. Who knew?? Never even heard of it. I was horrified when I read about it and how it spreads. I don't know how I got it or how long I've had it...just know I want it gone. Dr had me give a stool sample to be sure but I'll bet my last Twinkie that I'll have to go on antibiotics for two weeks to get rid of it. Everyone seems to get sick from the meds. Once I am clear from h pylori, I'm ready for surgery. Anyone else have this problem?

my insurance is so weird. the only things they require is a drug test including nicotine, the 6 month supervised weigh ins and type 2 diabetes. luckily I don't smoke and the hospital has me in their computer as controlled diabetes.
