    Blue Cross Blue Shield MA PPO Requirements

    By the way, all of my info on my profile is wrong. I'm a former bandster. Had it removed in 2013 and have gained back 80% of the weight that I lost with the band. I cannot get sleeved because I have gastroparesis. Would love to get back to the weight on my profile
  4. Hello: I'm considering gastric bypass. My insurance is changing effective 12/1/16 to Blue Cross Blue Shield Massachusetts PPO. I know that bariatric surgery is covered, but I cannot tell what the requirements will be. Anybody know? Thanks for your help. I'd like to know now, but if nobody knows, I can find out for sure once I get my insurance card. Thanks. Sue

    Erosion - Band's coming out Tuesday

    ERNJN: I'm not sure about that. I believe that my surgeon wanted to give me time to heal and recover from the surgery and post-op infection. It was quite draining. After that he did some testing and I was unable to get the sleeve because I have gastroparesis. They can do bypass, but I'm afraid to get that done. I'm struggling with my weight, and need to lose 70 pounds. I've taken off 23 pounds since November, so slow, but steady. Best wishes to you. Please post updates to let us know how you are doing. Good luck!
  8. Hello: My bariatric surgeon recommended that I increase Vitamin C a couple of weeks before tummy tuck. My recovery went well, and my scars are very faded, but that was a long time ago. Good luck! Sue

    Post Op Thrush

    Why not call this weekend or go to one of those pop-up clinics so you can get meds to make it go away? I think that thrush can be a side effect from antibiotics. Hope you feel better soon. Sue

    Gastric Balloon Procedure Booked!

    Hi everyone. I am guessing that because this procedure was just recently approved in the United States that it's not being covered by any medical insurance plans yet, but I could be wrong. Does anybody know the answer? Does anybody know the cost that's being quoted? Please share what you know. Thanks. Sue

    "Dog Ear" After Tummy Tuck?

    Hello: My surgeon fixed mine for free. She just shot it up with some novacain and cut it off and then put some steri-strips on it. Looked great after it healed. I only had one. They shouldn't charge you for this. Sue

    Orbera Success strategies

    Hi: Could you please tell us what it feels like to have the Orbera balloon inside? How did it effect your appetite so far? Any nausea? Is pre-op liquid and postop all liquids for the first XXX period of time? Inquiring minds want to know. Thank you. Sue
  13. Hello: This is going on too long for you not to call your doctor. Perhaps you have an infection in your stomach? You really should call your doctor. Please let us know how you're doing. Sue
  14. Hello: Please do call your insurance company and you may want to speak with the insurance expert in your surgeon's group too. Many hospitals make arrangements with insurance companies with pre-determined rates that will be reimbursed for particular procedures and if approved, the hospital has to accept that amount as payment in full, and they adjust off the difference. I hope that is what is happening here. Good luck, and please let us know so that we can learn from your experience. Sue
