First appointment was yesterday with weight loss surgery DR
Wednesday, July 30, 2014
I went to the appointment yesterday. I met with the Dr and the dietician. I'm learning a lot from the process. I have started a more healthy diet and better eating habits. The Dr thinks gastric sleeve would be better then gastric bypass. Less invasive and less time on the OR table would be better for my heart. He thinks weight loss would improve my heart, sleep apnea, and joint pain. He wants me to ask my cardiologist for clearance for surgery. I'm going to ask him at my regular appt next week. I have weaned my diet pop habit to one glass a day. The dietician is happy with that for now. Any advice on dealing with caffeine withdrawal headaches would be appreciated!
