I was told it'll probably take just 15 minutes but I'm still nervous. Fingers crossed, folks! :780_sparkling_heart:

My psych evaluation is today too! 15 minutes is pretty quick! I wonder how long mines will be. Just think... once we get this done its one less item checked off the list. Good luck! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Yes ma'am! After this, I just have 2 more dietician phone calls and it's off to the insurance :1296_raised_hands_tone2: Good luck to you too!

Good luck, you'll do fine, just be honest and don't be nervous.

Good luck! When you're done, make sure to come back here & share your experience with those who haven't done their psych eval yet!

All done! The psych eval went really well and it was very quick (about 20 minutes), but we had a nice chat. All he asked was how long have I been overweight, are there others in my family with weight issues, do I have other health issues, what have I tried in the past, how do I think surgery will affect my life, stuff like that...other than those things, it was a relatively short, positive conversation. He said after he writes up his report he'll provide the clearance. Woot! Easy peasy.

Edit: I did have a true/false questionnaire that I filled out ahead of time. It was 165 questions. Your surgeon may not use this, but at least it'll give you an idea what you could expect as far as the line of questioning. Here's the file.
