First visit with the new Dr.

Well I went to my appointment with the new dr. The office was nicer in person than they were on the phone so that was a good thing. Completed all of the health history stuff and the dr came in. He was pretty nice, but in ways I felt him to be thorough. He listened to what I had to say and he told me that he wanted me to have an upper gi before he did too much with my band just to make sure that everything is just right. I go for that this week. He did give me a 1cc fill although I am not feeling much difference.

He also is going to do a full lab workup which I haven't had done at my old practice testing for all vitamin deficiencies too. This makes me happy as I am still losing a lot of hair 15 months after surgery. This fact is another reason that I had so much fill taken out in July. I was tired of losing so much hair! Unfortunately that didn't help and I still fill the drain with hair at every shower. Maybe the labs will indicate something.

I go back in a month, Which is longer than I really want to wait, but I will go with it! BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop

Coming clean...

I can't believe that I have disappeared for almost 2 months.  Seeing my current status, I should have been around.  I last left you all with having a major unfill.  That was the worst thing that I could have done.  I have put on 20 lbs in 2 months!  I truly think that I hadn't dealt with a lot of my issues from losing my brother and the hunger came that I hadn't felt in a year and I ate, and ate, and ate.  I can't wear any of my clothes.  I went a dug a bunch out of the storage closet while in tears yesterday.  I don't want to go back there! 

This has all been compounded with insurance issues.  I can't get back in for a new fill at my surgeons office because my insurance says I should see the new guy who is local to me.  I new guy would have to refuse to see me to get my insurance to pay for my surgeon.  Don't we all love HMO's?  I have an appointment on this Friday at the new surgeons office.  They seem rude on the phone.  I asked the secretary yesterday when they called me if it was a possibility to get a fill at that first appointment and she said she didn't know.  I can't handle another month of this.  I am ready to get back in the game.  I have lost all of the strides that I made this year.  Maybe I dealt with some of the stuff that I hadn't dealt with, but still 20 efffin lbs???  I am 5'2, I look like a balloon! 

Thanks all for the vent!
