Hello dear friends!
I have not fallen off the face of the earth! I just haven't had a lot to report.
Friday, i went to my 6 hour pre-op class. It was quite informational, and I am so glad I brought my mom with me. She has a much better idea of what and why people go into this surgery.
I LOVE my surgeon. He was awesome. He could have a second job as a stand up comedian if he ever got bored with surgery, but he seems to really love what he does. Throughout his presentation he kept talking about ways he takes extra care, time and patience with his surgical procedures and you can tell in his results. ZERO complications in over 8 years. I love those stats!
My mom came with me and I think it was a really good experience. She is a little overweight, but nothing close to me. She is essentially half my size. I think she has been struggling with why i want to get the surgery. After going to the class and hearing what the Surgeon, MA, PA, Nurse and Nutritionist all had to say, i think she gets it.
Downside: They are already booked through mid-August with surgeries and my appt to schedule isnt until July 2nd. I think I am looking at a September date :(
I am not super happy about that, but it is what it is.
That's all I've got for now.
