Been working on this journey for over a year now. Went through all the hoops to get insurance to pay for the Sleeve and when it was time to schedule surgery my insurance said it was an exclusion on our policy. I had been told a couple of times that it was covered.
Anyway long story short.... I'm working on getting the money to go to have the sleeve done in Tijuana Mexico. One of my friends and her daughter went about 3 weeks ago and both say they would do it again in a heartbeat.
Reading all the posts on this site has been so uplifting. I can't wait till it's my turn.
