I'm Approved! :thumbup:Surgery date is August 25, 2010! I am so excited! I start the low carb, low fat, low calorie, high protein diet today. I am doing this a week before the surgery. The day before the surgery, I have to do a strict liquid diet and NO food or drink after 12! That's going to be a long day and rough night! lol! My doctor want to try a fairly new procedure on me where she's making only one incision through the belly button.... Lord! I am so scared to do this! Why try something NEW on ME! Anyway, I told her that I would be willing to try this new procedure. Dr. Pryor helped design this procedure.... I sure hope she knows what she's doing.
I am so pissed! I finally went in today for my initial visit and the doctors told me that I don't weigh enough! I am so sick of this! I really need to have my surgery before July so that I won't have to pay a deductible of $600! I know this sounds stupid, but is it possible to gain 30lbs in about a week or two weeks at the most? The doctors kept saying that they weren't telling me to go out and gain weight and that if I still wanted to have the surgery in the future to come back if my weight changes. He also said that if my weight was where it needed to be today that they could have had me schedule for surgery in the next couple of weeks! I just wonder, just how much weight can I gain in one week. My BMI is at 35, he said that it needed to be at 40. I don't really understand how they calculate BMI, but this is so depressing! What can I do guys to gain about 30lbs in the next week or so? Or should I just give up on trying to have this surgery submitted to my insurance company by July?
