Hi all!

This is my first post. I have been lurking around for a while and have found everyone’s stories so informative and inspiring!

I am self-pay and it was a little disheartening. The first hospital seminar I went to, they told me the surgery itself is $21k. The next one told me they don’t accept self-pay. I finally found an “affordable” hospital and had my first nutrition visit today!

I still have a long way to go in my journey (sleep study, gallbladder ultrasound, labs, more nutrition visits, psych evaluation, etc.) but I feel like I finally got the ball rolling and I’m feeling positive and hopeful. 

If anyone has any advice or things you wish you knew when you started your journey, I’d love to hear them! 

I look forward to *hopefully* joining you all on the losers bench!
