So Wednesday when I saw my surgeon for my consultation he told me my reference weight is 135, my excess weight is 134, and to look at a year out being about 175. Right now I am 5'2 1/2 and I weigh 269, with a bmi of 48.8. All I need to get done before the schedule my surgery is an EKG, a gallbladder ultrasound, chest x-rays, labs, they need a copy of my sleep study and my psych eval which is being done now. The case manager said as soon as she sees this stuff coming in she will put me on the schedule, and the quicker I am we can be looking at JULY!!! She had mentioned mid July but I want the end of July. I am so stoked! This is finally coming true and going to happen for me!!
