This is my first post, but I have been lurking for a little while. :)
I have been accepted into a WLS program at Denver Health Hospital. I began in April of this year.
The requirements are...3 visits with dietitian, 2 visits with psychologist, 4 support group attendance visits, and a minimum of 6 months with a maximum of 1 year.
Everything has been going smoothly for me until July, when I was diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea. I was prescribed a CPAP and now I have to document 3 months of successful CPAP usage before I get my 1st meeting with the surgeon.
I hate this waiting. I feel like I have had a setback. I have been using my CPAP regularly for a week with no problems. I am really getting used to it. I was hoping to have surgery before the holidays and my daughter's wedding, which is on Jan. 31st.
Any advice or words of wisdom would be very welcome.
Thanks in advance!
