Got my Orientation appt.!!

Recommended Posts

I got my appointment in the mail today for the Orientation:thumbup:. The bummer is that it is 2 hours away!! I have to remember to take this one, small step at a time. I have decided to tell more people than I had originally decided. I figured that the people I will tell are my family and very best friends. These people love me, care about me and should not judge me nor make me feel bad or guilty for wanting to be healthy and make a positive change in my life.

Anyhoo...Im going to ask my a friend to join me at the Orientation so that someone else is also hearing the same info.

What can I expect at the orientation?

Hi, I had my orentitation on june 19th.. it went over the 4 surgerys that they do and one of the dr.s lead it up and he was very helpful and answered as many questions as anyone had. and i filled out all my paper work and they said that they would call in a few days for my firls appt... but i did not get the call... after 2 weeks of waiting i finially called them and they were missing some paper work that i did not get... they mailed it to me.. but that was the delay and i was not happy... so make sure if they say they will call you, do not wait more then a few days... then call them and make sure you have all your paper work in. that is what delayed me and i also had to call back for my first internest appt. i was not happy.. i finially got the appt for august 12th, but was hopeing i would get in sooner.. i have been calling each week to see if there is a cancelation, but summer is their busy time and they donot get many cancellations. I am not saying this will happen to you, but do not wait as long as i did to find out i was still missing paper work... (i was never told that. i had to find out myself). it should not take more then a few days for them to get back with you for your internest appt... good luck and enjoy your orentation.. it is very informative....

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
