OK, I got the final word at my consult yesterday and can finally just focus on what surgery I am going to have. I will be having RNY after all, even though i have a medical need for toradol injections, the surgeon says that shouldnt be a problem, I got specific and asked about ulcer and toradol and he assured me, not a problem "your use is minimal and you dont put it in your stomach, you inject it see". Ok, if you didnt get that, its how he speaks, he is i think indian and cute as can be and sweet as pie. It is actually what i wanted but thought i couldnt have, so i started research ds, then i got excited about ds but it turns out that my insurance wont cover ds (its investigational in their opinion). So we are on track to rny me. I need a cardiac clearance because of an infant case of murmur (not found since i was like 3 yrs old) AND some chest pains i have had over the past few years. My PCP worked me up and felt i was fine, but the surgeon is playing it safe, that makes me feel good too.
He did break the news to me that he expects me to give up carbohydrates until surgery (yes, that includes fruit) and after surgery, I only get fruit back (no grains of any kid...rice, bread, tortilla etc). I am tyring to imagine life without them, i will try and find recipies i guess...it does feel hard though, i dont know how some do it. He wants me to start attending wls support groups ASAP, and get all my testing done. If all goes well, it should be april-May surgery. I asked about my c-sections being a problem for laproscopic and he said no!
WEll, wish me luck, drop me a line and give me some help because VVVVRRRRRMMMMMM its almost launch time (no, not lunch time silly).
