Glad to hear that you finally received your appointment for the WLS clinic, thanks for the encouragement, I email them every 2 mths for a status getting the same I don't know answer, just not sure what else to do with the WLS clinic if I could have got the loan or had the money I would have had it done myself ages ago. I know they say they are revamping their system and that there is a 10 waiting list currently, and as my follow ups with them discussions my referral I told the one if I have to wait 10 years by that time I will be 50 years old if I live that long in my current condition, I even contacted MSI asking about getting it done outside of the province or country but they do not do out of the country coverage even though they will send a bulimic or anorxic person to the US for 100K in treatment costs but leave a fat person suffer I had my Dr do a referral for out a province surgery but not sure if it was do ne or done correctly, You would figure when your BMI is off the Doctors chart that they would help move you up a bit, and it seems to be a catch 22 situation they tell you to follow the 2nd last part of the diet program to lose weight while you are waiting, my wife is a nurse and had me following a strict diet and still no avail, all it seemed to do is make me less active since my body did not know what to do... I try to be more active but after 5 knee surgeries over the years due to ACL and dislocations it is very hard with the extra weight to move around to be more active. I use to play football and rugby and be active when I was in high school but was injured multiple times (dislocations and blown ACL in grade 12) and back then they did not have the surgery option to repair so it was a 6 to 8 mth rehab on Crutches and when you were use to taking in that kind of calorie intake the weight went up exponentially 250 to 350lbs and creeping up to my current 414lbs. Again I am glad to hear you have heard from them and I hope I hear from them or MSI about out of province options but will not hold my breathe, so for the rant lol just getting more and more fustrated.....
