Topic: RE: Pre-surgery weigh in or.....NOT
I am wondering if there are others here whose surgeon and their team just decided to NOT even bother to weigh you on the day of your surgery? I can't tell you how disappointed and down right pissed off I was last Thursday March 22 when I arrived at UCSF for my scheduled RNY and realized after coming out of the general that they had not bothered to take a weight, there's no point of reference!! The last time my doctor and his team weighed and recorded my weight was an entire month before day of surgery whereupon I was instructed to go on a two week liquid fast consisting of three slim fast cans a day.
I am so upset about that and much of my experience. Feeling sad, depressed. Isolated, and lost. Felt ignored and unsupported by my surgeons office staff when I left three messages today with some degree of urgency and was never given a return call. What the hell is this, "we've got our money now, don't let the door hit ya in the ass." i****F is an actual "Center of Excellence" I would hate to be a patient of your "Center of NON-excellence"
Five excruciating failed attempts at getting my IV hooked up, a nonstop battle to have access to my nasal spray which I cannot breathe without, the ONE and ONLY good thing I can say about my experience with UCSF was the entire nursing staff and patient assistants. They were amazing in every possible way, true angels.
