I had a bit of a delay in getting a call in with the United Healthcare RN assigned to my case. I was traveling last week and she – rightfully – didn’t want to conduct the call while I was driving.
Anyhow. So yesterday was big as far as progress goes. I had a call with the RN, I attended a mandatory weight loss seminar conducted by Trinity Bariatrics, and I went to my first support group meeting. The seminar was highly informative. Dr. Chasen discussed the types of procedures available, obesity as a disease and lots more. It was a lot to take in.
What’s left at this point? Well, I have an appointment scheduled with the bariatric surgeon on 10/22. Between now and then I’m going to get in touch with a dietician and/or my primary care physician to start a medically supervised diet.
