I met with the doctor who will be my surgeon this past Thursday. This was my first appointment/consultation. So now I'm awaiting to hear if my Insurance will cover the program and surgery. I was referred for this by my gastroenterologist. I have severe scarring of my liver, NAFLD, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. So my doctor wants me to lose as much weight as possible and in a quicker manner then dieting alone. I am nervous but excited. I have thought about weight loss surgery in years past but only because I wanted to lose weight. I never thought I would be starting this journey to better my liver, but here I am. Regardless of why, I'm thankful for this. I'm also grateful and humbled by all those who have gone before and went through their journeys. It is because of all of you that those of us who are just starting out can gain strength and ask our questions and also find a support system. So I thank you and congratulate all of you on how far you have come! So here's to better health and a whole new way of life!!!
