Despite the apocalypse, my program had switched over to doing zoom appointments!

I did the psych eval today with him. He said ultimately the surgeon is the one who decides, but he's classing me as moderate to low risk of mental health complications. Overall a green light!

I seriously thought I'd get denied because I have PTSD related to domestic abuse.

I'm sorry you were a victim of domestic abuse, but I don't think something like that would be a concern when it comes to weight loss surgery.

As a survivor, I can tell you it is something thatholds you up in a lot of places that it wouldn't make sense to. Even the guy doing the eval was saying when he first started doing this people with mental health conditions were usually denied.

There are lots of bariatric patients with conditions such as bipolar disorder who have been approved. I think they're looking for things that would make it really difficult for the person to follow guidelines or understand what will happen to them or what that means. I've been active on forums for a long time and it's pretty rare to see someone denied. Although maybe they're more stringent at your clinic that at most (??). I don't know.

Maybe. I don't know, i just know that there was a lot depending on the mental health screening. So I'm SUPER happy. 😁

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?
