First question I got is Who has some great guacamole Medifast recipes? Thanks for any response. Another quick question... I had my initial.

Surgery.

Consult with the surgeon this morning. All went well, though it was a bit overwhelming. My surgeon is requiring an endoscopy for me because I have occasional indigestion. Has anyone else faced this?.

I've completed two months of supervised weight loss so the earliest I could have.

Surgery.

Is April, which seems so far away at this point..

My surgeon also requires that I get a book about weight loss.

Surgery.

So I'm wondering if anyone who has read one has suggestions of what to get?..

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..

I had to have the endoscopy for heartburn.... it was a piece of cake. You will check in , drink some numbing liquid, get knocked out and when you wake up in a few minutes you feel like it didn't happen yet. The surgeon will put the scope down your throat while you are asleep. take a few pics and possibly a biopsy. Other than feeling a little tired and having to take the day off because you can't drive after the procedure... it was easy peasy!..

I had to have the endoscopy too. I agree it was no problem. I woke up and asked my husband what he was doing there because I thought I was still getting ready for the procedure!..

I'd recommend The Real Skinny on Weight Lost Surgerywritten by two college professors who had the.

Surgery.

, their surgeon,.

Exercise.

Physiologist, nutritionist....Pretty thorough..

Endoscopy: my process started with that procedure because of my reflux problems. If I hadn't already had a recent one, the surgeon would have ordered one. The surgeon needs to know the health condition of your stomach. I doubt it would stop the procedure, but it might modify his/her approach. Don't worry about it. It also will allow him/her to see if you have a hernia that may need to be repaired...

Thanks so much for the info. It sure is comforting to know how the endoscopy works. All I could think of was gagging and puking on the doctor, lol!..

I have very bad reflux and chronic gastritis....

I had endoscope done almost 11 years ago, it was relatively simple procedure, but my throat did hurt afterwards. But they may have even better technique by now....

I got to get another one soon, my stomach is a mess.....

I sure.

Hope.

Mine is healthy enough to not interfere with me getting the gastric bypass....

At my center everyone gets an endoscope, indigestion or not..

I'm probably looking at April or May also, seems far away, but the time will go fast, I'm sure.....

My surgeons office requires every patient to have an endoscopy the week before.

Surgery.

Icase there is any unknown inflamation etc or anthing in general..

Stay positive... I waited a few months too and boy did it feel like forever...but today I am one month post op. =).

Good luck with everything. I can't suggest a book because my surgeons office gives us a book which our nutritionist and psychologist put together after working together for 20 years with WLS patients..

I had to have a EGD too, but unlike most people I have talked to... I was wide awake for mine. Very uncomfortable but not painful! It sounds a whole lot scarier than it actually was. Just check with your surgeon to see how they perform thiers...
