Well this whole process sure a great expertise in learning to be patient.
i got a call from the bariatric centre at the hospital this afternoon telling me I'd be getting a letter probably next week telling me when to come to the pre-op seminar. That should be sometime within a month after getting the letter as they hold them every 2 weeks. I'll be informed of dates for my surgeon and anesthetist appointments at the seminar, and when I meet the surgeon I'll get my surgery date. You folks probably know all this. I'm excited as hell and feel a bit like a race horse being held back. I was hoping for surgery beginning of feb but it looks now like I'm into March. I'm supposed to play in a concert 26 March and that's why I wanted it before mid February.
im also thinking a little more waiting time will give me another month to excercise and get in shape, as I've always found the better shape I'm in the more quickly and easier I heal.
The whole process in my country took me about 1y 3 months but there are people 2-3 years in the waiting line for the surgery. The waitline is long because the surgery is free if your BMI is over 40. So I would say you are having your surgery quite quick! Good luck and this is totally worth it!! I'm down almost 50 pounds and it's not even 1 month post-op yet!! :)
