I ended up being fast tracked for surgery, and had it at 4 months, instead of 6 :)

How long after your last Nut appointment before you were able to get your test results appointment, and how long after that before you were able to have surgery? I have completed everything except one last Nut appointment and that will be next week, I'm hoping for surgery before December.

I called the surgery center the day I completed my appointments, and they got me into their schedule ASAP, which was two weeks out at that time. I don't know what you mean by test results appointment.

I am completely overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done. I will be having my surgery at UW. I would really love for these requirements to be done quickly. One question though did you go just anywhere for your 12 nut appointments

Not nut appointments I meant head Behavioral Health appointments

Your doctor will refer you to a mental health clinic.. and everything else bc they all have auth. numbers necessary to be seen. (Medical necessity ).

Remember that when the Molina Bariatric nurse starts callin for monthly phone check ins, to be honest, but also positive, proactive, and realistic in expectations. They like that kinda thing.

Bethany, do you know if small weight fluctuations are counted against you?

Test results or peer appointment, the appointment after you get all of your requirements done and decide if surgery is right for you.

No, they dont. As long as you meet your 5% goal (5% of weight that was logged in approval, then you will be fine. You have to go to your doctors office to be weighed.

Get the EARLIEST appointments for weight checks. Go number 1 (and number 2 if you can) BEFORE weighing. Wear the LIGHTEST and LEAST amount of clothing. Always take off your shoes.

Minor weight fluctuations are normal, especially because of Water, stress, and even exercise.

Making all of your requirements, including your tests and 5% will trigger your Stage 3, which will get you a surgery date roughly two to 4 weeks out, depending on how much you weigh, and scheduling. During that time, you will be put on a 2 to 4 week liquid Protein diet.

I asked my PCP if she would prescribe me Phentermine during that time, and she thought that was a reasonable request, to keep me from being too miserable on it.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
