I met my surgeon today. Yay!
He wants me to have a stress test before surgery. Boo!
My file was sent to my insurance company. Yay!
But I didn't get a date for the surgery yet. Boo!
The surgeon thinks VSG surgery will be the best choice for me. Yay!
I also have to have some sort of swallowing test -- just when I thought I had finally finished all of that. Boo!
I was only up one pound -- either something magical happened or the surgeon's scales are EXTREMELY kind. Yay!
Dr. Surgeon said I just barely qualify for surgery based on my weight. Um. Boo? Yay? (Which leads me to ask: why did they have me lose five percent? What if I'd lost too much? Sheesh!)
So, now I wait to hear from the insurance company. Boo! Dr. Surgeon said it could be as soon as two days. His insurance staff said no way; it'll be at least a week. Double Boo!
My knee and back feel almost completely better! No new body parts are currently falling apart! Yay!
So, I guess that's it from this end. Oh, one more thing -- do any of you hang out on obesityhelp.com? I asked a couple of questions there and...wow, some people there are not terribly supportive/welcoming, are they? Are they just rude to newbies, or is everyone fair game? Also? I was really angry to see some comments blaming the girl who died after her DS revision for her own death. "We told her so!" Hmm...self-righteous much?
