      Ooh, lucky you. Just four days!? Nice.

  3. March 5th can not come fast enough now! Next week is all the pre-op appointments and labs! Crazy!! Can't wait to be on the losers bench and hopefully not need insulin anymore!

  4. Got a tentative date!!!! April 3rd!!!! Wohoo!! Just two more appts. till submitted march 7!

  5. Well I have to find a way to get the last NUT appt in before March 5th to even think of my ideal date... but it isn't a completely out there idea! Here's to figuring it all out!

      How many nutrition appts do you have to attend and how far a part are they? I had to have 3 but at 1X a month for 3 months. Of course that gave me time to get all my other required medical evaluations done. Good luck!

      We gotta do what we gotta do!! RIGHT LOL

  7. Is it even possible to get a date without having finished all steps? I am so worried I have my hopes up and next week they will be crushed... guess I'll ask tomorrow at the orientation. :(

      Prob. not. but, what my dr did was have me do all my appt.'s and he compiled all the results and sent as one packet along with a surgery date. At the time i had UHC i was approved first letter.

      Not with my surgeon. I had to finish the 3 months of requirements before my paperwork was submitted to insurance. After insurance approval, I had a 1/2 prep class and was given my surgery date. It took 4 months for the entire process.

      Everything is finished except the NUT. I had two prior NUT appts but they fell outside of the time frame for the 6 months and they just told me. I am hoping that what Bayougirl said is what they will do. My insurance is already aware I am going through the process so they are just waiting for the packet and a date. :(

  8. Orientation#2 Thursday... Two more Nut appts. then all pre requisites done! Feb. See the Surgeon and coordinator to see about a date!

  9. psych eval today! excited and nervous all in one!

      I actually enjoyed my psych evaluation. It was like an interesting conversation with an informed friend. The doctor was awesome! I hope yours goes just as well.
