OMG! I went for my psych appt yesterday and he approved me, we signed a contract, etc. Then I walked out and went to speak with the program coordinator to see what the next step was and she got on the phone and scheduled me!! :O I have a surgery date!!! April 28, 2009! HOLY CRAP!
This morning she called to set up my pre-op appts and I'm set to go for April 8 and 13. On the 8th I'll have labs drawn and have a class to learn about the pre-op diet... 2 week liquid diet!! The 13th is when I'll have an EKG, chest xray, and meet with the nurse practitioner and surgeon. Everything is happening very quickly.
I'm extremely excited to be so close but I'm also really nervous. This all started with my first appt on March 2 and I have a surgery date of April 28! That's nuts!!! WOW. Seriously.
I believe I'm set up for labs with my PCP at the end of this month so I'll probably need to call and reschedule those or see what she wants to do with me. I'm my PCP's first bariatric patient that she's followed so that's exciting.
That's the big news of the hour!!! I'll be back with more soon!!
