Topic: RE: Meet the surgeon appointment!

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.

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

Good morning :)

I would like the rain to pause just long enough to get some yard work done. Today we are meeting DH for lunch and maybe running a few errands.

QOTD: I decided to give the show Supergirl a second chance since it has three seasons on Netflix. Since I'm nursing we have a lot of sitting time on our hands. I'm one who likes to have noise in the background -- tv or music.

Post-op three years and seven months.

Breakfast - protein bar

Snack - oatmeal muffin, yogurt

Lunch - restaurant tbd

Snack - turkey pepperettes

Dinner - chicken and quinoa

Snack - pudding

All water and vits.

Good morning menu peeps!

Well since no one has filled in for CC, I decided to start the thread today.

Accountability - Great

QOTD - What is your favorite Netflix series? I just finished watching season one of Ozark - Sooo excited to see what season 2 brings! It's one of those series that you want to binge watch but I limited myself to a few episodes a week. Recommended if you like continuous surprise drug lord type shows. Definitely not for kids,,,, adult content.

B - Chocolate Optifast shake

L - Chocolate Optifast shake

D - Chocolate Optifast shake with Salted Caramel SF syrup

S - Vanilla Optifast shake

(exciting menu right)

Happy Friday everyone!

I seriously never thought a baby of mine would have trouble gaining weight... Thankfully she is still hitting her milestones :)
