  1. Hi everyone!

    Hello Lois and thank you all for taking the time to reply to my post!! How on earth do you come off that many meds in five days?? I don't doubt your word, it just seems too good to be true. Who took you off the meds? Your surgeon or your diabetic doctor?
  2. Hi everyone!

    I have been enjoying reading all of these informative posts! I have done my 6 months supervised diet and my insurance also requires a cardiac visit and a pysch eval. I have my cardiac visit coming up Tuesday and my psych eval on March 15th, as that was the soonest I could get an appointment. I'm really excited and nervous at the same time. I really need to work on getting more exercise. It's just hard with the way I feel most of the time. I have type 2 diabetes and am on 4 diabetes meds. All I want to do at the end of the day is collapse on the couch. But I keep telling myself I need to start a walking routine, slow at first, then build upon that. I am also on medicine for high blood pressure as well as high cholesterol and antidepressants. I can't wait to come off of these meds. I will be spending my time between now and my surgery reading more posts on this site!!
