Had initial appointment today!



Recommended Posts

I had my appointment today for surgery screening. My doctor does all everything in one day. Including: psychology testing, meeting with dietician, medical history review and testing; insurance coverage info; and set up appointment for EGD, EKG and chest X-ray. I'm very excited. I got to reading too much negative stuff and was worried about having the gastric sleeve. I go 2/10 for the other tests and then surgery consult is set up after that. Only insurance requirement my weight has to stay where it is between now and surgeon consult.

Best of luck to you, and judging by how fast everything is going for you, your surgery may be scheduled for late Feb or early March.

That will be one busy day with all those tests, but I would've loved to had it all done at once. Talk about efficient!

Best of luck on your surgery!

Wow! That will be one busy appointment! As far as reading negative things, don't let that scare you. I remember reading the "weight gained since having surgery" thread on this site before having my sleeve surgery and nearly backing out of it because of it. If you take the opportunity this surgery gives you, follow the plan, and do the emotional and physical work you need to do, you will do great! If you want to read some positives instead of negatives, feel free to check out my blog in my siggy. I've tried to share the good, the bad, and the beautiful from my first appointment on. Good luck to you on your journey!

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
