Feeling discouraged



Recommended Posts

First appointment was 12/04/2019, thought I would have been having surgery by now. Does it normally take this long to get through the process?

I assume you had a number of appointments (including nutitional and medical clearances) over a number of months you had to meet? If you have met those conditions already, I am guessing any delays are due to covid.

Have you followed up with the surgeon and / or your insurance company?

Yes. Gone to all appts. Some delays are due to COVID. Lots of appts have been rescheduled numerous times. It’s just the longer this is taking the less sure I am of it actually happening. Part of my issue is that I had an appointment today and I gained some weight. Not a ton, and I am aware of what I did. Now I have to fix that. My drs didn’t say anything about it, but I know what I need to do. Just worried that this might set me back, and this time it’s my fault.

Hi Jen sorry to hear you are feeling down but today is a new day! Yes covid is definitely complicating the process but there are some advatages like telehealth appointments 🥴 telehealth support group etc. focus on the positive in that youve gotten some things out of the way and have additional days to lose that few pounds 🍀
