Slim in 6

The first step in finding the new you is making that appointment. Sure there is a lot of information out there and you will have to take the steps to ensure that you are getting the best care. It is extremely vital for you to do the necessary research into your insurance company to find out if the procedure is covered and how much you will be expected to pay out of pocket.

When you make your appointment to talk to a bariatric surgeon, you should know what to look for and exactly the questions you should ask. Nothing says that you have to stick to the first doctor that you talk to. You can take your time and get second or third opinions. You can also using the Internet to your advantage to look up ratings of the doctors and read reviews or past experiences of patients that had done bariatric surgery.

Your first appointment.

When you arrive at your first appointment, you can expect that the health care staff will be asking you many questions. They will want to give you a complete health examination and take down your health history. You should be completely honest with yourself because your answers can determine if the surgery is right for you and which surgery will work best for your particular case.  

You must disclose any medications you are taking, whether or not you have had professional care for emotions, and prior health care issues, such as surgeries that you may have had and whether or not you suffer from any diseases or illnesses.  

During this appointment, the doctor may ask you questions about why you would like to have the surgery done, whether or not you are committed to the lifestyle change and how you plan on following post operative appointments.
