So I go to my informational meeting tomorrow, after that then what I'm so anxious to get started.

Each program is different. At the informational meeting they should provide you with an overview of how their program works. Things may vary depending on your insurance regulations, but the program will be able to provide you with that information.

If you are able attend informational meetings of more than one program. I looked at 2 different surgeons before I choose my doctor.

Start getting all your medical records together from every doctor, specialists, and emergency room visits. For example I went all the way back to 2002 when my weight started to out of my control. I have four doctors, three gym membership, 15 different emergency visits from asthma, joint pain, and a mini stroke, chiropractic, plastic surgery three surgeries, and a muscle bone and joint doctor. I started to educate myself with every bit of information I could find about VSG and other options. Educate yourself everything the good and bad about everything you will have to go through. If you still want to do gastric bypass surgery, that's great. If you have amazing doctor then you can plan for all appointments now. You going to see a pulmonary, gastroenterologist, cardiologist, blood work, EDG and a nutritionist. Research the hell of what you getting into because you don't want to be stared in the wrong direction. I wish you the best of luck!!!! Keep me posted.
