Jun 28, 2009Well it's been a month of waiting and waiting. I finished all of my pre-screening test on May 11th, I found out on June 12th that the OSU Bariatric committee approved me for the surgery program. Now I just have to wait for the insurance approval and go to 4 dietician appts.
It seems the woman who does this step of the process is on vacation and won't be back until the week of June 22nd. I gave her a few days but started leaving message last Thursday and Friday. I'm really anxious to get the ball rolling. My parents are driving for AZ in September to visit me and by BF and I really want to have my surgery done and many weeks behind me so they can see a difference. The hardest part for me so far is having patience. Hopefully I will hear something this coming week and I can complete the rest of my pre-op work.
I'm continuing to gather lots of great advice from the message boards and preparing myself for life after surgery. I have been making a list of questions for the surgeon, ordering samples of protein powders. My new favorite drink is FUZE strawberry melon - I love this but realize it won't give me any protein but helps with giving up soda. I'm excited and ready to start the next phase of my life.
