Well, I've started the foot/paper work involved in having the Gastric Bypass Surgery. My PCP referred me to a Dr. Dexter G. Turnquest. I've e-mailed his office requesting information and a consult.
I'm still going to my folks place by hook or by crook to work out in the water and take care of myself in other ways. I just want to get this started and get the consult out of the way before I go. Its very likely I'll have to do another medically supervised diet before my insurance will approve me for the surgery but I'll do whatever I have to to make this work. (When I say THIS I mean weight loss not just the surgery.) Keep your fingers crossed for me.
