1st Surgeon Appointment Today <insert internal scream>



Recommended Posts

Oh! Also...an interesting part of the visit was their scale. Apparently just 86lbs of my 245.5lbs is fat. The remaining 159.5 lbs is bones, muscle, organs, etc. :huh:

That's kind of cool! I wonder how that works?!

Great!!! Love the surgeon. He's really straight forward, informative and a smidge goofy. Excellent combo.
Until my new insurance cards get here in a few weeks, they can't check the policy for the detailed requirements. As far as what's next...all I need to do is an in-office psych eval (no matter if insurance requires it or not), EGD, cardiac stress test, and possibly just one more nutrition visit (depending on insurance requirement) that they already scheduled for 01/14/19. New insurance and FSA account will be in effect 01/01/19 sooooo...anyone have a time machine so I can fast forward this torturous waiting game?! LOLOL
Waiting is totally the hardest part. It goes by SO slow and then after, it's like, flying by!

It's this scale, but the Tanita website is showing it discontinued. The models that replace it are at the bottom of this site. https://www.tanita.com/es/tbf-300a/ Pretty rad looking! The newer model says "Within 5% of DEXA, at a fraction of the cost"....that's how it read my true body fat weight! WANT :blink:
