Sometimes it's just time....

Operation find a new doctor…

My PCP had recommended a doctor, and then a woman I met through my crazy doctor’s office switched to the same doctor so he’s who I’m trying first.  And then, in fact, a wonderful person, jogood, also commented that she lives in the next county over and uses this same doctor and also recommended him – yay!  (Dear Jogood – thanks so much!!! We should try to meet up sometime.  There are a few of us who live in the area.  I couldn’t reply to your comment, so if you’d send me an email, I’d love to hook up… mytrekdownward@gmail.com).  This doctor is the former partner of my current doctor which is… interesting, I guess.

Anyway – I contacted his office and was told to have my records sent there as the doctor likes to review the records before he’ll commit to taking on a new patient that has already been banded.  I had my records sent to me and faxed them off to his office on Friday and now I wait to see if they like me.  If this one doesn’t work out, maybe I’ll look into Linda or Bonnie’s doctors, or maybe I’ll consider the Fill Center USA in Annapolis.  We’ll see. 

I’m feeling like I’m in a new mental space.  Moving forward.  I feel like I’ve been stagnant for so long.  But sometimes it’s just time to move along.  It doesn’t matter all the other stuff that’s going on in your life – things are always going to be happening in your life.  I remember a time when my husband had surgery and couldn’t drive for six weeks and both boys were in sports and I managed to lose weight during that time.  That was just what my life was filled with – sometimes your life has drama and sometimes it’s crazy busy and sometimes it’s calm and boring – but none of those things should be excuses to not work towards meeting your goals and I know I, for one, allow them to be excuses far too often.

But… Sometimes it’s just time.

OH and guess what… I just got a call from the new doctor’s office and I have my first appointment with him on the 28th.  I oddly feel totally nervous as I feel like I haven’t really been a banded person for quite a while – and now I’m going to be one again… but… here we go.

Awesome news! I'm surprised your old docs office would send you the records directly,and not over to the new doc. I don't know why they sometimes act like it's top secret info. in there when it's YOUR file, but most places won't let you put your hands on them.
It'll be interesting if you can bring up the old doc in conversation and mention that you didn't feel comfortable there, to see what the new doc says about him! Maybe there's a good reason why he broke away!

You will have to let us know how the appt goes and how you like him. You know we have the same crazy lune now and I would love to get to someone who is more aggressive with the whole process :)
Great to see you back!
