Second trip to UAB!
Jun 16, 2009
Yesterday was my scheduled appointment at UAB Hospital to have my esophagogastroduodenoscopy done. I was so relieved that when I got there Dr. Clements, the Dr. who will perform my weightloss surgery was the Dr. performing the esophagogastroduodenoscopy as well. Everything went well and as scheduled but I found out that I have a hiatal hernia, about the size of a golf ball in my abdominal area and severe acid reflux, which I started treatment for today. I was informed by my doctor not to be alarmed due to the fact that he could go in and remove the hernia during my weightloss surgery with no problem and that my condition is not an uncommon one. I am now scheduled to have my psych evaluation on 6/25/2009, my meeting with the nutritionist and my first support group on 6/29/2009, my sleep study on 6/30/2009, and in the meantime I'm still awaiting insurance approval. I'ts alot to do but I feel like it'll be well worth it in the end. I am so very ready in every single way to have this done that I tend to get a bit anxious at times but ..... That being said, Pray for me guys and I'll keep you updated.
