I am new here.... I originally scheduled to do a lapband this month but my physician had called me and wanted to talk to me before the surgery on Nov 15. So I went to see her... And I was so glad that I did it! She wanted me to check out the gastric bypass surgery before I choose what I realy eanted to do. She does not want me to spend twice in a procedure if the lapband will not work! So, i listened to her and canceled the lapband surgery! I am currently meeting with a surgeon for bypass on the 12th.... So we can start the process...

I am so excited... I didnt use my insurance coz it is so ridiculous... I have to pay $5000 + 20% of the surgery that would total to $7000... The surgery is only $9988. So, i have decided to just pay it n my own and use the bariatric surgery some other time if I need to do the gastric bypass which I doubt. I am very excited! I don have to go in so many hoops if i go with my insurance. Government insurance sucks ... I wish they have better plans someday!

Thank you so much...
So i am having difficulty if I want to do lapband or gastric bypass... They said that we only have one time to be covered by iinsurance... Pls. Gimme insight. If u do gastric it is permanent, if I do lapband what are thr advantages?
I am so excited and nervous at the same time. My doctor suggested that lapband wil help me in many ways with my health. I hope my insurance covers it! I weight 230 lbs and has been struggling in losing it. My doctor informed me that I have a metabolic syndrome that causes all this health issue I have right now. Thank Hod that my PCP are willing to help me go through yhis phase.
