  1. When I talked to my surgeon, I told him I had decided on the sleeve, unless he thought I should get the bypass. He said since I asked him, he said they are both good surgeries. But if he had to have surgery himself, he would choose the sleeve. He also said, if he could only do one type of surgery for the rest of his life, he would choose the sleeve. My doctor is one of the top bariatric surgeons in Florida. He is a center of excellence doctor.

    I hope this helps. I agree with Kelly, its your body, and your decision. Good luck!!

  2. Does anyone know how much the network rate for the surgeon and asst surgeon is, for anthem blue cross blue shield. I have to pay 20% of the network rate. I was trying to get a guess on how much money I will need. I am going to be sleeved on Aug 30th. Thanks.
