Since I've been off work for a few I figured now is the time to make an appt with new Dr since my insurance changed and can't go to the Dr i started with. At about 9:15 am I left a message for the bariatric person. I haven't received a call back. Not sure if I should try again tomorrow or give them more time before I call again. Thoughts?

My doctor’s office in NJ usually doesn’t return my calls the same day. I’ve just learned that’s how they role. I would call again tomorrow.

Vadim Gritsus. He’s in Pequonnock and Paramus. I live in NY but used him for my (failed) gastric sleeve when I lived in NJ and I really like him.

It's not that. I wanted him but work recently changed insurance and he's not in my plan anymore

So I left a message just after 9 am yesterday and no call today and it's after 5 pm so I can't even call them. Guess I'll be leaving another message tomorrow

That’s a little worrying. I wouldn’t give them more than 2 chances to return the call.

Amen to that! There many many physician- fish in the waters of New Jersey. Don't settle for bottom feeders or being treated like pond scum. You deserve the best, and than does not include being ignored.

Met with Dr. I need to do an initial nutrition appt then 3 more before surgery. I need to do sleep test and Doppler of my legs. Then the psychiatrist. I need to make sure sleep study is covered. I don't want to get hit with a bill. Same with Doppler

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
