    I wish u both success you will do great. I had surgery 10/29/12 down 87 pounds it is truly worth it but u must b committed to the process and mainly to yourself. There will come a time when your stomach will heal and thats when u will begin your battle. So form great behaviors NOW water, commitment to self, exercise and renew your mind u sb ok. Good luck don't forget to pray and ask God for help he is always there.

    to all of you keep following up call your insurance provider and ask for a status. Often times the approvals have gone through but have not reached the physicians office yet. I had my surgery 10/29/12 down 87 pounds still have a ways to go but would do it again in a heart beat. Hang in there and be persistent with your insurance and docs office.
