Hey all!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend. Aside from my kids on a sugar high and bouncing off the walls, all is good.

My question is, I have my "meet the surgeon" appointment this week and would love to know how that goes. What things were discussed, how long did it last. Basically everything. Lol Note that I am going through the Hamilton program.

Thanks in advance all

Hi Kimberly,

It's pretty quick actually.

If I recall, I was weighed I think by a nurse, asked a few questions and then called in to see the surgeon. Dr. Hong explained the surgery, had me sign the consents, and then asked me if I had any questions. I did, I asked them, got answers and that was that.

10 - 15 minutes tops.
