Not MORE Doctors!!!!

In order to be approved for the bariatric surgery, my insurance requires a person to jump through many hoops and put out buku bucks for copay's BEFORE they consider the surgery.  Pretty dumb on their part since it alleviates a lot of other medical problems that come with being overweight.  

So far I have been to a Gastroenterologist, psychologist,  and yesterday I went to my 1st of 2 nutritional visits.  I have appointments for a cardiologist, pulmonologist, and an endoscopy at the end of the month.  Then my pre-op appointment with the surgeon on the 27th. 

Sometimes I think that they just make you do all of these appointments to see if you are really ready for this life altering operation.
