Hello and welcome,

Don't stress. I assume you mean it is your first appointment with the surgeon?

They really only go over the surgery options and help you choose which option is best for you. Give you details of what to expect. I was given some charts to show the differences between the surgeries and the "average" results. Talked about my history with weight problems, he asked things like what I wanted to achieve and what my goal weight was. Mainly to make sure I had realistic expectations. it was very relaxed and stress free. There was no pressure.

Of course, this was the experience with my surgeon at the first appointment.

My first apt was the surgeon, and the "coordinator". The surgeon apt was as I mentioned above. The coordinator came in afterwards to give me the run down of what my insurance required and how to proceed if I wanted to.

I am in the UK but went private. The NHS around us are not doing Bariatric surgery as they are so far behind on other surgery. They class Bariatric surgery as non urgent
