Happy Fucking Tuesday

Man I am having a really freaking bad day.

Here's how my first revision appointment went.

1.  PA comes in and tells me I have to see Dr. Y (the surgeon) because he wants me to have RNY.

2.  Hell to the fucking no.

3.  Dr.  Y comes in and after 10 mins of him explaining why he wants me to have RNY (better results, faster, he wants me to lose 80 more pounds WTF!!!), I FINALLY interrupt him and tell him there's no way in hell at a BMI of 34.8 am I having RNY.

4.  Oh shit, he realizes my BMI is under 35.

5.  Ok, he's now on board with revision to Sleeve.

6.  However now that my BMI has gotten low, need to gain a few pounds.  Like at least 3.

7.  And oh damn, how are we going to get insurance approval?!

8.  I've probably been too successful to get approval.

9.  But what the hell, we're going to try anyway.

10.  Next steps:  Nutritionist, Psychologist, and Upper GI series appointments.

So glad my hard work and dedication are paying off...not.

I rewarding myself with a milkshake after my appointment....Doctor's orders.

  7. I weighed in with my 10 pound purse- true story. If the doctor is on your side, see if they will let you weigh carrying your heavy bag. Wearing shoes. Etc. Heavy coat. Whatever.

    Sorry for the annoyance..but you so got this. I HATED the insurance hoops, but very grateful I didn't have to pay, and am not having to pay now for fills, etc.
