I am scheduled for my psych exam next week and am told that it will take 2 hours....what the heck is going to take that long? What is she going to ask me that will take 2 hours? If I don't "pass" the exam then surgery will be put off even longer, and I'm already tired of waiting. I'm hoping I'm smart enough to, as you say, "not get myself screwed out of having surgery." any suggetions or advice?
Just answer the questions truthfully, and realize it's just part of the process. This is a huge change in your entire life, mentally it's draining and exhausting. This step is just making sure you're prepared, and honestly ready for this extraordinary change. Losing weight is the easy part, breaking bad habits, letting go of food, and learning new behaviors is the hardest part of the journey. The psych eval just gives them a deeper look inside your head, nothing to be worried about in my opinion if you have normal expectations and are really ready for surgery and the lifestyle that follows.
