  2. I'm still a few months from Surgery, But I was wondering if anyone has any Items that they found are absolutely Amazing to have in hand? Or even things that helped make your Pre and Post Op any smoother?

  7. I don't have progress pics since I'm just now starting this journey, But I'd like to see some as Well. I'm 5'2" And 243. I hold my weight about the same as how you described.
  8. Has anyone used Dr Blaney or anyone in his office in Augusta GA for your Sleeve Surgery? If So, Would you share your feedback and experience?
  9. Has anyone previously used Dr Q at Pompeii Surgical? I was approved for the surgery and their In-House financing program and it seems like my only option due to low credit history and No gastric coverage on my insurance. But I'd like to find some reviews that's aren't on their website first.

    Dr. Quinones in Mexico

    Hey I am also scheduled with Dr Q at Pompeii. They don't require a deposit so I am still open to other decisions. But as of right now I am pretty satisfied with my decision. I, like yourself couldn't afford the surgery without their in house financing. I just wasn't ready to spend everything at once especially when I have other obligations as well. I'm pretty familiar with the procedure as I did all pre op testing only to find out that bariatric procedures are an exclusion in my plan. For me they do require a deposit. The finance company does anyway. And it has to be paid 3 weeks before the surgery. Plus you have to buy you tickets and send the confirmation to them. Sent from my SM-N910T using the BariatricPal App
  11. Recently I was able to get Medicaid (I'm in GA) due to my husband being laid off. And today I found out that it covers Bariatric Surgery. I have my first consult with the Surgeon on Thursday. What should I expect? This surgeon is in a hospital and their website says they are sometimes able to "rush the process" because they have all of the specialists in one Building. Anyone familiar with the GA Medicaid Requirements? Sent from my SM-N910T using the BariatricPal App

    Pompeii Surgical (Dr Quinones)

    That's awesome to hear! I was approved for the surgery yesterday and just got the contract for the financing. Medical Tourism Scares me but not as much as dying from being so overweight.

    Dr. Quinones in Mexico

    As of right now i am looking to have surgery with Dr Q at Pompeii Surgical. I've seen some amazing results and reviews from the Bariatric Pal Team MX but Dr Q offers in-house financing and that's the only way i can afford the surgery. Does Dr Illan offer any in-house financing? Sent from my SM-N910T using the BariatricPal App

    Amerigroup GA

    This is my first post here. So try stick with with me and my rambles. First off, I'm a 22 year old female with a BMI of 46 plus multiple health issues. Those include Pre Diabetes, Multiple Strokes, Hypertension, Severe Iron Anemia, High Cholesterol, And Kidney Disease. My doctor has mentioned that I get gastric surgery previously. (The Sleeve) Up until recently i was unable to afford it and my Healthcare Marketplace insurance didn't cover it. (I'm in Georgia) As of a few weeks ago, my husband was laid off so we were able to get Medicaid through the state. Does anyone know the steps to get approved the fastest with Amerigroup? I will probably only have the insurance for 4ish months. Can my doctor go ahead and sign off on the supervised diet? Since I've been trying with their consent and help for over a year? Any help or suggestions on how to get the ball going as fast as possible would truly be appreciated.
