So so glad to see you! Thank you for your response. And 100% agreed. That's what I have read over and over. When the weight comes back, so does the diabetes. All of what you said. My sincere hope is that I'll be among the 95% who experience full reversal of t2d. I am ready for the surgery, more than I've ever been. I don't have another option. It's awful timing my GP is away until mid December. I've waited this long, I can wait for a few months. I am really hoping she will co operate. I'll go through the documents on how to talk to the GP and provide her more info on the procedure as well as go in prepared. I also need her to write me lab requisitions, when asked. If she refuses, I'll have to look for a new GP. And ideally i don't want to waste time on that. It's very hard to find GPs that are taking new patients, here. I am going to start writing to Dr. Marchesini (who I hope is still practicing) and Dr. Ungson, tonight. I'll be self paying, traveling from Canada. I know Dr. Aceves passed away some time back, unfortunately. I've heard Dr. Greenbaum offers a good self-pay rate also.
