    Just got my approval !

    At Jenn yeah that's all I've done for the last month since I decided I wanted to do this. Pintrest, YouTube, here, on and on . I was told with my insurance it normally takes about two weeks, now if the surgery schedulers would only take that long I was hoping today was the day they would call, but no such luck! Hopefully tommorrow.
  11. I went to seminar on the 30 of April, first Dr visit on the 5th of May, psych eval on the 12th of May, nutritionist appt was Tuesday, paperwork was submitted at 9 am yesterday morning and granted approval at 3pm yesterday afternoon. Just waiting on surgical department to call with surgical class and pre-op physical testing and surgery date and then I start my preop diet two shakes , one low fat dairy snack, and 3oz protein and half cup of vet for two weeks prior. So after all said and done will be approx a month and a half by the time I get the surgery done!
  12. I'm having my surgery within the next two months and trying to get things stocked up so I'm thinking of writing the companies to get samples of stuff to try . what are your favorites? Who makes it and where do you get it? Thanks in advance!

    Any Richmond, Va sleevers?

    . Lauri407 we have the same Dr! Only thing I'm waiting on is nutritional appt the date to be scheduled!
  15. Hi all ! Just thought I'd post to let you all know I go for consult today, I already have the NUT appt set which is 6/5/14, and I'm waiting on the Psych to call me back for my appt. Dr has already written letter of clearance so just have to have the other appts done and I'll get a date for surgery! I don't have any wait or diet that I have to follow, with the exception of the low carb for two weeks before to shrink the liver, and that doesn't include any liquid diet either! Is anyone out there in sleaveland have Dr. Brengman/Schroeder of advanced surgical partners in Richmond via Henrico Dr's hospital?
