I I had to do tons of pre op tests like sleep studies, upper GI and even my gallbladder out. After that my insurance said they wanted 6 month supervised diet. THEN after that my insurance denied me. My BMI was a 52 and then still denied. Luckily I have a great bariatric center and they appealed it and FINALLY I got approved as medically necessary and 3 days later got banded.

I'm so excited!
