I am gradually working through the steps toward the surgery option I have decided for fighting this war against weight.
Just like any addict, I am going to try to work through it pretty much the same way.
I have checked with my Dr and got the ok to persue this option.
Last week we went to Little Rock to attend a group meeting to see what all is involved in the Gastric surgery procedures that are available and to turn in my paperwork
I have checked with our insurance companies on what the coverages are.
Now to wait. This is a waiting type elective surgery. Perhaps to make sure it's not a rush one as it's a permenant one. Which is fine with me. I am just more determined than ever with each passing day.
I have spoken with several people about it and all with glowing recommendations. As a matter of fact, I went to dentist yesterday for checkup and cleaning and the girl that did the cleaning had done the
laproscopic bypass procedure about 4 yrs ago and was willing to tell me all about the good- bad and ugly sides of it.
I was so impressed with it, I couldn't help but count how long it would be before I might hear from the Little Rock people on setting up the next step.
Well, to my very exciting surprise, I heard from the Little Rock Dr office this morning, and what to do next and a nurse would call this afternoon and would let me know when and where with the next step as I am a very great candidate for the laproscopic gastric sleeve or bypass.
I had already told the nurse that called this morning that I was sooo ready for this and that if necessary I was ready to start my 2 weeks of pre-surgery liquid diet tomorrow if necessary.
So, when the 2nd nurse called this afternoon, I was again jumping for joy to know that there is an opening tomorrow for me to actually meet with my Dr and discuss which surgery and when to begin the 2 weeks pre-surgery steps.
YAY! On my way Miss Monster.
I do in fact realize this is only a tool to help me succeed with this war. And I sooo need that. Like fighting with a stick vs a machine gun. Yeah Buddy!!!
With all of this falling into place, I know more than ever this is the direction I am to take.
I WILL make this work!
Miss Monster of Weight - you are on notice!!!
Hide if you may . . .
my ducks are lining up and coming for you!!!
