I’m starting to get excited and nervous, first appointment today. I scheduled all the other appointments with the required drs. If all goes well will be having surgery end of February beginning of March. I am looking forward to be able to go down the stairs without my knees or back aching.

It will go faster than you think.
I started my journey in October and I can't believe that I am scheduled to have my surgery on the 29th.

I am looking forward to the same thing as you.....strengthening my back and legs enough where they do not hurt.

So have you guys had your first appointments by now? If so, do you like your doctors, do you think you will be able to work with them? Does everybody have to fulfill the 6 months of preparation orvarevsone of you on a faster track?

I only have to do 3-month supervised diet and I saw my doctor on 1/10/2019 for the first time. My insurance doesn't have any waiting period but the doctor I picked has the 3 month supervised diet. I do like this facility due to they have everything in-house, psych, dietitian, cardio and they have a lifelong program that stands by you before and after surgery. I should be able to have surgery in April so fingers crossed...

So far I really like the surgeon very down to earth and everyone at his office has been wonderful, I am going tomorrow to meet with the dietician and then they will submit for approval. So hopefully I will find out a date soon after.
