I mean, every program has different requirements, but based on my program, that is a pretty thorough list of pre-op requirements. Looks like you're making great progress!

Made some preop progress this week.

Psych

Cardio

Radiologist

Labs

Nutrition Class

and sleep study being delivered Monday.

I think after I complete the sleep study, all I will lack is a scope. Sound about right?

Hoping for early November

Congratulations! Can't wait? Excited?

Not cleared, cardio. Ugh.

[emoji17] That sucks, I'm sorry. Was this all an insurance requirement, or a requirement of the surgeon? All I had to do was psych and dietician (and I'll have the pre-op labs about 5 days before the surgery).

I'm not sure who is requiring it. They have asked for more testing. Ugh

UGH! I'm sorry to hear that but this will hopefully just be a small delay on your path. Considering how quickly you were able to take care of all of the initial testing, I'll keep my fingers crossed that they're able to book you for the additional cardio testing right away. It seems like a big setback, but someone on your team saw something in the cardo results that worried them and your team is just doing their due diligence to make sure your surgery is as safe as possible. They just want a complete set of data to work from. It does suck to have to go in for yet another test, but you have conquered much of the pre-op path already and that's a big achievement!

Yes. You are right.

So I cleared cardio today with no further testing. The cardiologist didn't see anything that bothered him, and signed off.

Completed, and sent back the sleep study yesterday. Second meeting with the surgeon next week. I can't wait to start the liver shrink!

Well just got a call from the cardiologist. Not clear. Lol. They want a stress test. I'm out of sick time. I've used it all for these appointments. Ugh
