While i was at school I'm a college student a classmate said missed ya at the last class I said the normal thank ya da ya da. Then I don't know what I was thinking I said I had a EDG done and afterward I was tired. Why did I say that. Now take it this person is over 300lbs herself. She then asked you having problems with your stomach are or you having gbp surgery. So I told her I was having the surgery in case she was interested in having the surgery but BAM once I said that here it comes. How did you get that approved with such attitude . But I let it slide and I was like okay maybe I can explain the approval process. But instead of listening she starts the I was told all insurance companies stopped paying for surgery. So I stated that is not true some ins will cover you if med nes ya da ya da. But she went right back to the I know some people who were told the same thing mess. So I just gave up and tried to change the subject because I was tried of listening to the nonsense since I was getting annoyed . But she just could not let it go. She said how did you get all those evaluations completed because surgery should be a last resort that's why I have never considered it. And to put the icing on the cake she then starts talking about my surgeon with the my friend was going to use him but...speech. By that time I'm starting to get a little flared up and I let her have it all so politely. I said look it works for me and if my surgeon called and said he could do my surgery right now I would be up and ready to go. Because I am tired of my knees hurting, being tired all the time, having body aches, and not being able to enjoy my life. So after that I got a better attitude out of her she was like I never looked at it that way.
But I have one question if she has never considered the surgery. How does she know about all the clearances required for the surgery? Something to think about.
Almost to my new beginning

Now since that last appt things seem to have slowed a little I am so ready I can almost taste it. This week it really kind of hard because my original date was 8-21 until it was changed but I am still blessed that it was only a 10 day difference so no need to keep crying over spilled milk.
I have done everything you can possible name to prepare myself for the surgery. This wait is making me feel like I am going crazy I can hardly focus day in and day out that is all I can think about. I wish these days would really hurry up and pass ......
This has been a blessing to get the opportunity to be able to get this tool and I will not blow it.

I went to my initial consult on 8-3 it was very informative. The Dr really showed he cares about his pts and really knows what he is doing he is also a jokester. Ok now to the part that pissed me off the staff had really overbooked pts and alot of us had the same time 10am and 11am so the wait was horrible there were people standing out in the hall. We did make the best of it by talking among each other. I must say once I did go back things went pretty fast. Now I have 2 more appts before my surgery and I am ready to go.
