Well, I have to admit, I was feeling pretty down the last few months waiting for my meet the surgeon appointment at TWH. I had been waiting since August 2018 and had started calling in for cancellation appointments in Nov to no avail - just wasn't in the cards for me to get in earlier. But now I can happily say I have a surgery date set for January 29 , 2019.
There is finally a light at the end of the tunnel!

So exciting for you! It will be here before you know it!
Thank you. And I hope it goes by fairly fast - this liquid diet before surgery is hard.
I started my liquid diet in Jan 10 (have to do 3 weeks of it). I'm half way there today. It's been challenging but it does go by pretty fast. Focus on one day at a time.
Thanks so much. Greatly appreciated.
