Okies I went to the shrink on friday he attempted to pick my mind and even talk me out of the surgery. However in the end he told me that he knows that more than likely Ive already made my mind up about this so he will write his report as he has gone over the pros and cons of the surgery with me and that I am capable of understanding them and capable of making such a decission. I still have to go back and take a few tests though. Hopefully he will call me back this week to schedule the testing.

Good news called the surgeon and I need to have a psych evaluation, a nutrition consult, and a sleep study. I already have an appointment with the shrink for tomorrow. :) Woo HOO Still working on the rest. Hopefully I can get all this done before the end of the month. Then get in with the surgeon next month and have surgery scheduled in December :)

Well it appears this journey is about to get of to a good start. My case manager with the insurance called today to let me know that she spoke with a surgeon's office in Clarksville and they do not have a BMI limit and is now working on getting an appointment for me :)

6 down 39 to go

Weighed myself today and I am now 364lbs and a BMI of 67 thats minus 6 lbs from 11 days ago and only 39 lbs to lower my BMI to 60 (which is what I need in order to have the surgery done locally.)
