- HEALTH TRACKER
I'm sure the wait times have changed in the last year however for me this is how it went:

August 2011 - Received letter informing me of group session and consult with surgeon.
Sept. 2011 - Group session and consult.
Oct. 2011 - Barium swallow and physical with my family physician
Nov. 2011 - Meeting with NUT
Dec. 2011 - Meeting with psychologist
February 21, 2012 - Surgery!!!!!!
I didn't really want to bring up the subject of catheters but I'm going to anyway. I've never had to have one, and don't really want one, but it seems the message boards are mixed on this issue. For those of you that had surgery in MB, did you have one? Just wondering if it's normal procedure here.
Good for you! Your results are amazing, keep up the good work. And thanks for the update on tummy tucks. We'll keep our fingers crossed that it will be covered one day.
For those of you that have already had WLS, I'm curious to know how many pounds each of you lost on the pre-op diet....whether it be meditrim, optifast or whatever.
I got the call! Andrea called me this afternoon to let me know I have a date. I start the Optifast on February 7th and my surgery date is February 21 with Dr. Andrew!! To say I'm ecstatic would be an understatement.
omg...you poor thing. What a terrible phone call to receive. I wonder if and how many others received the same call. That bubble filled with anticipation, only to have it burst. Stay positive, everything happens for a reason, and the surgery will be here sooner than you know it.
