    Hey everyone! I just realized there was a CT forum on here! I was wondering if anyone has Connecticare insurance and if so, how long did it take to get approved for surgery? I am starting a new job and the insurance is Connecticare. I am a patient at St. Raphael's Bariatric Surgery Office but have only been able to go for an initial visit since my old insurace didnt' cover any visits or anything to do with Bariatric Surgery. I want to go back and see my surgeon as soon as possible, my insurance won't start until June so.... I have some time. I am right now keeping a diet diary/workout diary (so far 3 months and counting) for my physician to look through and assist me on changes I can make. It's odd, I haven't lost any weight what so ever. He has been very supportive of my idea of WLS. He referred me to Dr. Yood at St. Raphaels. I was told by Dr. Yood I am a perfect candidate for lapband. With my large size it is very difficult and painful to my knees and joints to be doing any strenuous activities - thats why most of my exercise is on the bike. I got through my first day of training for my new job and being on my feet for 8 hours, running around is killing me. Last night, I had a hard time falling asleep because my legs and feet were aching so much....I feel like I'm 90 and I'm really only 24! Sorry for the rambling on....haa haa, anyone have Connecticare?
