GOOD news for the New Year.....

I thought was going to go with one surgeon but after problems yesterday with them and how they checked the insurance and not understanding going with a different one.

I went to a 3 hour seminar on weight loss surgery at the Cleveland Clinic here in South Florida...the director of bariatrics spoke, the insurance person and nutritionist. And then we had a mandatory hour talk with the psychologist. It is mandatory before you talk with her. She gives you a ton of papers to fill out and then meets with you for 1 1/2 hours.

So after I left I was able to call and schedule an appointment....I was hoping to get in before we go to NY next week.....and I did.....I am so excited. I will see Dr. Rosenthal on Friday at 2 pm. I finally have the ball rolling.

I have the Cardiologist Thursday and the Gynecologist on Wednesday (1/16).....I finally get the one I really like since we have new insurance.

I am starting to see a light in the tunnel.

That is super fast! So, how long are the estimating before you have surgery?
