Met with the surgeon!

FINALLY met with Dr. Suh :)  It seemed like that would never happen.  I still don't have a surgery date, but it is getting closer. First I had to watch a 45 minute video on bariatric surgery.  Then,  he went over a lot of stuff, very fast.  He told me to start taking multivitamins, vitamin C, and gave me a prescription for Prilosec.  He also told me to go off of carbs and limit my sugars, alcohol, and carbonated beverages.  I still have to have a chest x-ray and labwork, plus attend his pre-op class.  He stated it would be 6 weeks, at least before my surgery.  So, hopefully a March surgery date!!  YAY!
