While still no actual appointment with the clinic here in Ottawa- They did send my Dr. some more things for us to do- lots of blood work and stool tests- boo- and hpylorie - i have no idea what that is ! and a sleep study even though i have no snoring or apnea issues- now to wait for those to happen!
Hey TBeat - that is how it starts! Good luck.

Opti Wt Nov 4/17 226 lbs BMI 45 Sx Wt 212 lbs RNY surgery Nov 23/17 M1 -18 M2-9 M3-10 M4-8 M5-6 M6-7 M7-6 M8-3 M9-1(so far) Down to within one pound of my goal and 99 lbs down from my highest weight. I was not a fast loser but who cares as long as you get there! I know the newbies check the trackers and the signatures so although I kind of lost track of how the rest of the weight came off, you should know that it was not fast and furious but it was slow and steady!
current BMI 24.7 that, my friends, is NORMAL!!! Strong is the new pretty!
H. Pylori is a bacteria that causes ulcers. Treated with antibiotics.
They do a lot of testing in the early stages so they can treat any problems they may find well before surgery.
You're on your way! This is the start of your journey.
