Aren’t they though. That is how I found him. Then realized he’s in my state and I knew I needed to call him. And how he is in his videos is EXACTLY how he is in person. Not only is he AMAZING. His office staff is as well.

Saw my surgeon again today, submitting my paperwork for bypass surgery to insurance this week, Tentative surgery date pending approval should be mid August!!! After approval I have to get blood work done and attend some kind of pre-surgical class then I get my actual date and start my pre op diet.

I made an appointment for next week with a pyschologist to discuss my relationship with food and hopefully gain insight into my relationship with food, I want this to be successful long term and don't want any emotional surprises,

So excited!

I am anxiously awaiting approval from insurance - Anthem BCBS of CT. They said it could be two weeks from now before I hear. UGH how can I wait? So worried they won't approve me!

I just got my surgery scheduled, and it's for August 1 in the Houston area. I'm so excited... FINALLY! I originally had a May 30th date but it got postponed because I was diagnosed with Barrett's esophagus and had to get another EGD scope for ablation of pre-cancer cells. The GB will cure my acid reflux and now I've had three doctors agree (surgeon, gastroenterologist, PCP). My surgery was initially denied due to low BMI (34) but now it's a go because of the barrett's. I'm nervous but mostly excited to start a new life without yo-yo dieting and GERD! Can't wait to see who my surgery buddies are for AUG. 1.
