[size=5][font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]The first time I was called obese for I was morified. I was 31 years old and I weighed 160 pounds. Ten years later, I now weight 230 pounds. After several failed attempts to lose weight and keep it off I decieded I needed help. I registered for an Information Session hosted by NYU Langone Medical Center in January 2013.[/font][/size]
[size=5][font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]I had my[/font][/size] [font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif][size=5]consultion on March 4th with Dr Marina Kurian. I gathered the necessary items as required by my insurance and recently got a surgery date of July 25th and preop testing appointment on July 12th. However I still have to see if my insurance will approve it. My surgical coordinator said that my insurance [i]wasn't[/i][/size][/font] [font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif][size=5]one of more difficult insurances...[/size][/font] :lol:
