I went for my initial consultation with Dr. Huse. He is everything I had anticipated after reading the posts on this site. He was very businesslike. By the time he came to have the one-on-one with me I could not think of any questions. After I left of course I had plenty of questions. I guess I anticipated that he would go over my medical records more indepth than he did and then give me some educated guess if he anticipated the insurance company to approve or deny my surgery. When I did ask if he thought they would he said he was not familiar with my insurance and that they automatically appeal any insurance decision.

I have been overweight since I was at least 8 years old. I have at times lost some of the weight only to regain it again. I am now diabetic taking 4 different medicines in an attempt to gain a normal blood sugar level. I have hypertension that is somewhat controlled but has caused me to have atrial fibrillation along the way. My family doctor has encouraged me to esplore the possibilities of bariatric surgery because he believes that I can never lose the amount of weight I need to have a lifestyle I desire while I am on my diabetes medication. He believes that it is a vicious circle, I eat to maintain my blood sugar and my medicines then in turn make me gain weight. I am at my wits end not knowing what to do. I don't want to take all those medicines. I want to be able to walk without discomfort, without aching all the time. I want to be able to run again. I want to feel like I did when I was half the age I am now with alot of those same desires.
