Possible delay of appointment



Recommended Posts

I'm a natural worrier when it comes to things I can't control. I had my 2nd of the 6 weight loss doctors appointments required by my insurance for WLS surgery at the beginning of this month. I am scheduled for my next appointment on April 6th. I am getting very worried that the doctors office will end up closing due to coronavirus precautions and I'll miss my appointment for the month of April. If that happens, I'll be back to square one unless insurance allows some kind of waiver due to the circumstances. I know there is absolutely nothing I can do about it and that only time will tell, but I wish I could mute this inner voice of mine!

My doctor had scheduled a group meeting to discuss the pre-op diet and post op diet etc, but now have changed it from a 4 hour group to a one hour individual session. I don't know how they expect to cover 4 hours of info into one hour. I'm scheduled for mid april surgery and expect it to be delayed, but who knows. I think everyone is on a day by day life.

Here's hoping that both of ours works out exactly as it's supposed too! :784_peace:

Mine did the diet stuff individually in 2 separate appointments of 1 hour each. Lasted maybe 45 min each. Without a large group asking questions it goes faster truly. And I liked it better- felt more Tailored to me rather than just a generalization.

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
