I just went to my doctor and asked if I could be referred . She didn’t try to lecture me or anything , just asked me if I realised the appointments would be in London , and referred me .

m.sss, No , London in England ! Sorry , I didn’t realise there was another London !

I was approved for WLS in 2005 and backed out 3 week from surgery date. I was scared and heard a lot of negative things. My weight has yo yoed since. I have asthma, high BP, sleep apnea, had knee surgery and constant back pain. I was also borderline diabetic. The surgeon who performed my gall bladder removal in Nov. 2018 suggested I reconsider WLS again. I attended his seminar and met with my PCP who pushed the Paleo diet to all of her patients. I tried it and was unsuccessful, she said she supported my decision and the rest of the process was easy. I have a great team, my PCP, surgeon and nutritionist were all helpful and supportive of my surgery.

And may YOU make Goal and live life better, thinner and with less of you pushing down on your joints, with diminished pain. Don't have the BP but have a recently discovered Thoracic Aorta Aneurysm, stable but still lurking somewhere in my chest, otherwise we are SoulSisters in ailments, but my Testimony-- the pain drops down to more manageble, you move better if still a turtle🐢 pace and most iMPORTANT- you do feel better and face Life with new vigor. We'll never be unscarred but those are our Battle Ribbons, no matter what Life threw at Us, We Still Won This War! And remember always what HOPE stands for
HOLD
ON
PAIN
ENDS.
Much love from me in Central Ohio, your Bari--Bud Frustr8📍😛📍

I brought it up once and my PCP said “ sure... I’m ok with it” and then moved on to the pre surgery process/seminar.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
