Endocrinologist appointment and 'scope booked on December 9, 2011 11:13 pm
This week I received a letter from the endocrinologist with an appointment in late January and a couple of lab reqs (bloodwork and an ECG) as well as a call from Sherri, Dr. Malik's assistant, giving me a Jan. 17th date for the 'scope. She said that if everything goes well that I'll probably be booked for surgery in February or March! Wahoo! This is just what I needed to hear to keep me on track through the Christmas season of potential food excess though I haven't done badly the last couple of years given my body's reactions to various foods I used to love (chocolate = heartburn, fatty, rich foods = gastric distress, milk products = psoriasis flare ups).

If I get the surgery done in the Spring I hope to have lost enough weight to make a difference to how I tolerate the Summer heat. At this point I don't tolerate it. I overheat quite easily and though we have a mild climate here when the temps reach more than about 22 degrees Celsius I get uncomfortable. What a joy it would be to be comfortable on days like that. I would feel "normal" again.
