Hi all!

I’m just starting the process and have a question about pre-op labs. At my nutrition appt this morning, the Rex Bariatric said it’d take a few weeks to send the orders for me to get them done.

I have my annual physical with my PCP this week. Rex said they’d accept labs from our PCP. I have a call in to get that list from Rex, but I’m not sure if they’ll call back in time for my appt.

From some basic web research I figured they’d want the following:

A complete blood count
Urinalysis
Chemistry panel that includes:
-Basic Metabolic Panel (BMP) – kidneys and respiratory system as well as electrolyte and acid/base balance and level of blood glucose
-Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) – liver and important blood proteins
-Electrolyte Panel
-Lipid Panel
-Liver Panel (also called Hepatic Function Panel)
-Renal Panel (also called Kidney Function Panel)
-Thyroid Function Panel

Does that sound comprehensive? I’d appreciate your feedback.

Thanks!

Tonya

Nicotine, Cannabinoid/THC, H.Pylori, pregnancy testing and I have to keep thinking.

Thank you Bastian and Krimsonbutterflies! I appreciate the responses. :) The nurses did reach back out with a list (I wasn’t sure if they would! They seemed a little cagey about stating what they were, when I asked during the meeting.)

You're welcome. Some nurses are a bit different.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
