    Question Just got a intake appointment

    Hey I'm new here I was finally given a referral by my pcp and they bariatric center just made me an intake appointment they said it would be 2 hours long and 1 hour with the nurse practitioner and 1 hour with the nutritionist.
    I'm really nervous. can anyone tell me what to expect and how things usually work. or just anyone I can talk to, sort of feel alone in this process and not sure about anything except I need this surgery to better my life

    At my initial appointment the NP discussed all the steps I'd need to take to prepare for the surgery; testing, psych eval, weight loss goal, etc. The nutritionist gave me pointers and a picture of what was going to be my diet post-surgery, as well as discussing the testing she'd be overseeing, tips for how to prepare food in each stage of post-op eating, etc. There was also a visit with the insurance/financial team to discuss what my insurance would cover and what I'd be responsible for financially. Appointments were made for me that day for lab work, my first psych appointment (my insurance company required 2 psych visits), mammogram, colonoscopy, etc. All in all, nothing to be scared of.

    What part of NC are you in?
