So things are going well thus far…as of Friday, I am down 19 pounds. My GP and cardiologist are good with both my diet and my surgery, though they both need to officially sign off on it. My heart could be better, but it’s not as bad as I thought it might be, and I don’t have that worry anymore…for now.
I actually had a consult with the surgeon today along with my case manager. There is still a lot of work to be done before this surgery can be done…lots of hoops to jump through to satisfy the insurance company. But I guess they want to make sure I’m serious about this. And I am.
