I know if feels life forever, but when you are at the point where you are, i can guarantee you it will go by so fast with the process!!
I don't remember much about my first visit, prob took a couple hours, got weighed in, they got all my info, medical and prescription, then with the Dr i prob only spent about 15-20 mins, he explained all 3 surgeries and suggested the Sleeve for me, which is the one i had made a decision on before meeting him so i was pretty pleased with that.
They will not be able to tell you when your surgery will be, but all i was told then, was i could expect it to happen within 6 months, and from the 1st visit to surgery, it was about 5.5 months but it goes by pretty fast especially when you have been waiting for years to get a call.
Unless they are really ahead with surgeries, i would think within 6 months you should be able to get surgery.
Have you decided on a surgery yet ? or still undecided?
