OK so my two year journey is finally coming to a end. I started the bariatric surgery process two years ago then my file got thrown in a box and placed under a desk somewhere and was forgotten about and i was told to try more weight loss programs after already trying 6 in the last 4yrs. So I got some help from my PCP assistant who then started the ball rolling for me again by getting the auth. from my insurance provider.
I then started doing my research on surgeons and after looking at 10 different ones and considering going out of California to have the surgery done I found the perfect doctor right here in San Francisco. I contacted his office and the help there was amazing they were pleased to help me and told me everything I needed to do to prepare and even gave me a time line of how long the process generally takes before surgery. Now I'm 5'8" tall and around 400lbs (ughhhh) so I'm excited that I'm alot closer to having surgery than I was two years ago. I've completed all of my appointment except a seminar and my appointment with the surgeon.
I originally wanted the RNY but then decided not to then I wanted the Lap-Band and after speaking to a close friend and doing alot of reading, I realized that there was something out there much better and suitable for me than those two which is the DS. So I meet with the surgeon on April 26 and hoping that all goes well from there as I'm ready to get my life back.
