I am your typical twenty something girl. I have been overweight pretty much my whole life. I found out a distant cousin of mine had weight loss surgery in May 2011.. so she told me all about it.. I was immediately interested. I went to my first seminar in Feb 2012 and knew this is exactly what I wanted to do.. I came home and talked to my parents about it and took them to a seminar that was a little bit closer. My first appt with my surgeon was March 15, 2012. I had to go for an ultra sound of all my organs, a stomach scope, blood-work, 1 nutritionist visit, and a psych eval. My final appt with my surgeon was April 26, 2012. My surgery date was then scheduled for May 16 2012. I began my 2 week liquid diet May 2, 2012. My beginning weight on May 2 was 244.1, surgery date was 231.5 and my current weight today Nov. 19 is 187.4 I have blue cross anthem insurance and they paid 90%.. my surgery cost me $1425 and probably another 600 or so with my co pays and deductibles because they were not met. This by far has been the best decision i have ever made.
