G. Derek Weiss M.D., F.A.C.S, F.A.S.M.B.S.
I went to a seminar for Weight Loss Surgery because I was interested in a revision from where I had regained weight ...one of the surgeon's (Dr Malani) was there and after seeing some of my medical tests and results he said I needed to be in the ROSE Procedure Trail ...that was a week and a half again. Since then things have moved really rapidly .... I went yesterday for the Initial Eval and the H Pyloric breathing test. and it was Negative .... the PA saidi they already knew the size of my Pouch and Stoma ( it has to be stretched or dialated to a certain size to get in the Trial) because I had already had an Upper GI Series and the Upper EGD done and they had the results. She said UNOFFICIALLY i was accepted if I wanted it. I will have the OFFICIAL acceptance into the Trial after the EGD is done on Monday morning ... at that point they will schedule the surgery for probably 4/23 or 4/24 .......I am really excited because the insurance I have right now has an exclusion to WLS ....and this wont cost me anything .... I have heard ..Dr Weiss is an awesome Surgeon and has a great personality . I will find out for sure on Monday when he does the EGD.
