Update since my first entry I have gone to several different appointments, additionally I have changed my diet to low carb, high protein consumption only. Im currently down about 7 lbs.
1st was a meeting with a nutritionist at the surgeons office. She weighed me 243.. (Down a couple lbs). She told me about how my eating habits would have to change, how much I could eat after surgery. My new stomach would only hold about 1/2 of a cup of food and that I needed to make sure I had enough protein. After about 20 minutes with her, I needed to go downstairs to talk to someone about exercise post surgery. He and I talked about the importance of getting daily exercise.
Additionally, I have met with the Gastro doctor who will be doing my EGD. That is where they stick a camera down your throat to look at your insides. I have an appointment scheduled to get that done in January 2017.
A week and a half ago, I went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned. They gave me an estimate of $6K to straighten out my teeth. Good grief, that is a lot of money. I have two more appts scheduled. Hopefully someone will have a cheaper price.
Until next time.
