I am now four months post-op for RNY. Since I had my surgery outside of the US. I am trying to find. Out what blood tests I should have done. Is there a particular test that WLS patients need to have? I started to attend a WLS support group in my area and there was a lady there that worked in a local bariatric surgeons office who told me to call her for a list of those tests. When I called the receptionist told me that they could not give that information out without seeing me. I told her that I had a primary care physician (he is not an expert in WLS) and didn't need a second one. Since I don't have insurance (cost) I have to pay everything out of pocket. Enough of my rambling, does anyone have any information?

Hi KlassyKid! I cannot answer your question, but you might try the WLS area.

But most members here don't like to give medical advice. Someone might be able to steer you in the right direction, though. Good luck!
