Capital Health Plan (CHP)



Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I’m new here. Had my psych eval and she recommended this app (plus all the YouTube videos I’ve seen as well).

I am wondering if anyone has CHP... I only have 2 visits with a nutritionist (last one is at the end of this month) and one psych meeting.

Met with a pulmonologist and he said he’s not testing me for sleep apnea because he sees no reason, since I don’t wake up tired.

Only major things left are my cardiologist appt and endoscopy.

At the start of this, January 4th, my BMI was 41. I had the flu pretty bad, plus the supervised diet, I’m now down to 39.28. I have no comorbidities... except GERD, I’m guessing.

Sorry for being long winded!! I don’t have anyone to really talk to about all of this here so just looking for someone with a similar experience :)

It wasn’t too bad. Met with my surgeon January 4th 2018 and had my surgery April 25th 2018. There’s no 6 month supervised diet. Had to meet with a nutritionist twice if I remember correctly. Also had to see a few more doctors to make sure I didn’t have sleep apnea or any heart/lung problems. My PCP also had to send my surgeon a letter recommending me for surgery.

Best of luck!!
