1/33 call about WLS - am told to attend seminar 1st.
1/12/04 attend seminar make 1st appt with Dr.
1/14/03 1st consult with Dr. :)
He thinks I can have Roux-en-Y, I have started making appointments
for all the pre-op stuff today!!! I'm soo excited and nervous at the same time. I will be fine as
soon as I have the surgery and wake up in the post-op after that
the rest will be easy to deal with.
I am hoping to have surgery March 2004. My Dr. has done close to
400 of the procedures and has a very good reputation plus that I
really like him. I deal with doctors every day at work and I think
he is great and really, really cares about helping patients.
I had the barium swallow and the ultrasound of my insides. All
meeting with dietician-she thinks I am a good canidate
See the GI dr. say I need another barium swallow with a small
bowel follow-thru to make sure my crohn's disease in not in my
small bowel. If if is not he says he will give green light for
EKG and Echo ths afternoon as well.
Pulmonary. Dr. he wants a sleep apena test as well as the lung
The small bowel follow thru- YIPPIEE!! no crohns disease in my
Respriatory therapy for the lung function tests and ABG.
See my primary who puts me on high-blood pressure meds and gives
Sleep apnea test, no sleep apnea found.
Psych- she thinks I am a good canidate and I have her blessing.
I see the OB-GYN as I want to have a tubal ligation while I am
out. He says no problem just have Dr. Billy call him when I have a
date and he will be there. ;)
See the Pulm. Dr. again, I'm not sure why ,I think to get his ok
and talk abbout the sleep apnea test.
Dr. Billy to GET MY DATE!!!!!
Got my date 3/26/04
Wish me luck

about updating. My surgery went great. I had no problems. Dr Billy
is great. The only thing that casued pain was the drain tube but
as soon as that was out I felt better.

pounds at 3 weeks, 2 days out. YIPPIEE!!!

look forward to the rest of my journey. I m hoping to have lost
111 pounds by December 31st.
