    Carolina Rose reacted to Panda333 in Denied after being approved and devastated   
    ***Update***

    Guys, I’m so happy I could cry. After really going full scorched earth/raising Cane with Aetna, my dr.s office, and with my employer, I found out today I’m approved. I really can’t believe it. Still don’t have a date but this is fantastic news. Thanks Everyone and I’ll be seeing you online here with probably more questions.
    It was not easy, had to complain to the business office supervisor, the surgeon directly, I saved all of my correspondence and had an extensive timeline for everything and named everyone I spoke with at Aetna. If they approved me only to shut me up, I’ll take it.

    This from getting initial “Sorry you are denied come pick up your paperwork”. I found out my advocate didn’t know how to file and appeal and that’s why she told me that.

    I just got my RNY surgery date for August 19th and my insurance approved me early. I’m in TOTAL SHOCK and almost in tears. I’m in month 4 of 6. And now it finally feels real. Finished up with pre-surgery registration today. I see my surgeon for pre-op appointment 8/1 and then next is 8/19 SURGERY DAY.... I feel like shouting from a roof because I’m just that darn happy (but I’m not). Only 2 people know about it. ☺️☺️☺️ I was so anxious I blew through all of my clearance visits in 3 months.... my doctor said “YOU ARE MY ROCKSTAR PATIENT” 😃😁

    Starting yesterday, I have reverted back to mostly a Phase 2 full liquid diet, with the exception of eggs, which I tolerate fine.

    Would it help you to step back a phase just for a couple of days ? It’s the hardest thing to keep sipping water continuously when you feel nauseous. I Found it slightly easier with flavoured water .

    I'm 16 days post-op now. I didn't have any nausea the first 12 days, but since I've started adding soft solid foods back into my diet, I've had a lot of nausea. Is this normal? Also, whenever I take my Multivitamin now, it makes me nauseous for like an hour afterward. The nausea is making it more difficult for me to sip Water throughout the day, and I'm already feeling dehydrated. I want to just take a few big gulps of water but I can't, of course.

    I tried ricotta bake today. I think I could only manage 1.5 Oz it felt heavy. I did eat a soft scrambled egg for breakfast very very slowly but I didn’t really like the texture. It felt odd. Finished my day out with Greek yogurt and Protein Shakes

    I read something regarding this as far as scar tissue from prior operations (hysterectomy) caused the surgery to be sleeve instead of Rny.

    I’m three months out and I can barely eat 2-3 bites of anything! I’ve also had a bunch of complications, so that could be part of the problem.
    I know how you feel though being nervous to eat anything. Hang in there! I keep getting told it’ll get better. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    I was so excited to start on purées. I’m still working on the slow part of eating but haven’t had any problems.
    Ive been making riced cauliflower or broccoli and blending it up with a bit of broth and a scoop of unflavored Protein power. I got tired of Soup and this at least gives me some sort of different texture.

    So I am nearly 2.5 years out from surgery and pretty much I am just not big on eating much meat even tho I have always loved it. Is this a surgery thing or just me?

    Today I was nervous about starting the purée food stage. I dumped in the hospital from drinking too fast and I was afraid of trying something besides full liquids.
    I had 3 Oz of very thin grits for Breakfast. I ate slow... I use a baby spoon to eat.
    For lunch I had a 5 Oz Greek yogurt.
    Then I had 3 Oz of unsweetened applesauce. I felt kinda hungry an hour later. So I reviewed my eating plan. I forgot to drink my 2 Protein Shakes for the day. Ooops. So now that I’ve had that. (Only one shake) I feel like I’ve eaten a full course meal on a holiday. Geesh I don’t want anything else.

    4 days post-op and you're already eating refried beans?? Lucky.
    I'm 9 days post-op and the most solid thing I've eaten is greek yogurt. My program said I can start adding soft solids (scrambled eggs, refried beans, some pureed stuff, thoroughly chewed soft chicken) on day 12 or 13, but I'm going to start tomorrow. The past 2 days I've only consumed like 350 calories because I'm so tired of yogurt!

    Hello to all my fellow sleevers. I just had surgery on 08/01/2019. a little about myself i'm 51, single and live in anahieim california. I'm a RN on a surgical floor and have been around bariatric patients for about 14 years. the surgeon was finally glad to get his hands and scalpel on me. today is the last day of liquids.....finally. I love the support and the advice these forums provide.

    Once I made up my mind I was set. I was tired of losing and gaining weight and my blood pressure was getting out of control. The only problem I am having is trying to wear as many of my favorite clothes before they no longer fit me.
    This is a good problem to have Lol.
