Psych evaluation...she was NUTS!

Nov 22, 2009

This past friday I had my psych evaluation at Kaiser (Stockton).  My first impression I thought she was going to be a real sweet lady....WRONG! She was clearly against the Duodenal Switch but it's ok, she's intitled to her opinion/feelings...I too have clearly made up my mind to have the DS.  I was so mad but I managed to put on my poker face and keep it on for the remainder of the evaluation (if that's what you want to call it).  This lady didn't even get a crack of a smile out of me after her snippy comments/opinions.  Honestly, I think she was more upset that I would be able to eat normally with the DS and not absorb the calories more than anything.  She also kept saying "there is no literature that says the DS is better than the RNY"...she's nuts!   I never said it was better, just that it was a better choice for me!  She asked why I wanted the DS and I told her, plain and simple as that...sheesh!  Thank you Jesus...I'm finally done with all my pre-op stuff, I shouldn't be walking into Kaiser for anything, not anytime soon anyways.  Ok, I'm done.  I just needed to vent. LOL

Still counting down, I can't believe how fast the days are flying by...this week should be short because of Thanksgiving.  Then after that I have 2 weeks until I'll be in San Francisco! YAY  It still has't quite sunken in yet that I'm actually going to have surgery...FINALLY!  I don't think it'll hit until December.  We shall see. 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
