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

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
