I need advise IMMEDIATELY!!! Please help, I'm in full-on panic mode
By mustangwine on 01 May 2012
Hey ladies, I'm freaking out here! I have been wanting a MM for a very long time. I am 39, have 3 boys ages 19, 10 and 1 yrs. My hubby is totally on board! So I started looking for surgeons to consult with. I live in North Dakota and it is very limited but there are two that I have researched and I'm pretty excited about (or at least I was).
The first, Dr. Becker could not get me in for a consult for a little over 6 weeks, but I scheduled it anyway. They had me fill out an online registration and answer several questions. Then I called Dr. Honeycutt. Her office told me that I am too fat and they preferred to not consult with me. Suggested that I loose weight and call them back. I spoke with her nurse and she went into a long drawn out reasoning that I have a BMI at 30 and they are a restriction and that my outcome would be poor.....etc.
When I got off the phone I was in tears. It is not what I was expecting at all! I am 5'10 weighing 210. I wear a 16 and 38/40 D. Here is my panic....Just now Dr. Becker's office called and said they can see me tomorrow at 2pm. I am scared to death. I don't want to be humiliated again for thinking I am a candidate. Do I call back and cancel? Do I suck it up and go anyway? I'm usually calm cool and collected but I am freaking out here! I have lost weight from 240 - 210 in the last couple of months. Any help would be so incredibly appreciated.
