It went really good. Everyone at Newstart was really nice. My nutritionist is also Lauren and I have talked to three different patient advocates and Kristin is one I have talked to. I need to lose 44 lbs to be ready for surgery they need my BMI at 60 before we can schedule surgery. They tood my tsh level when I was there and that is the only bloodwork I have had done. The patient advocate told me I may need a sleep study, so I may have to do that before surgery.
I really liked Dr. Follwell, he seemed to be very nice. He examined me then said all should be a go for surgery as soon as I lose the 44 lbs. Thankfully my ins no longer requires any supervised diets. I do have a 6 month attempt at Tops online, but all my ins requires now is showing that I have tried attempts on my own and failed.
So I am very excited and can't wait to have all this done and get in for my surgery...
I hope all is going good for you on your diet, and that your surgery will go great.
