I have my initial appointment for gastric sleeve coming up in two week and I'm very excited. I am currently 307 lbs. I am a 38 year old female with 4 kids and I am currently pre-diabetic and have consistent high blood pressure. I want to make this change now so I don't miss out on life.
So I am still in the very beginning stage of this process. I have been to several appointments and have been to my first round of classes for behavior, diet, & exercise. I have 3 more rounds each of those classes and several more appointments to go. What I really like about how Kaiser has set this up is that the classes are in a group setting and you are with the same group of people every time so you build friendships and a support system of people going through the exact same process as you.
