I tried to have Bariatric Surgery three times. Third time was a charm. The first time, I lost 70 lbs. on my pre-op diet and insurance denied me. The second time my husband got critically ill. Finally, he got better. I was really organized the third time and approval was lightening fast. I hope to learn from others in the group and help others!
